I just got done building my rig, and I'm currently installing Windows.


I have a few questions...in BIOS, my CPU Temp was around 34-35*C and my North Bridge was around mid-40's. I had a questionable install with my Dark Knight heatsink, and I was unsure of if I put to little, or too much thermal compound. I'm wondering, once its all up in running, what should I do to really test it out and make sure everything is running correctly? What kind of temps are considered safe?


Any tips?


My build:


Antec 1200

ASUS Rampage II Extreme w/ XiFi Sound Card

Intel Core i7-920 w/ XIGMATEK Dark-Knight heatsink and Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste

(2) Sapphire Radeon HD 5770's in CrossfireX

6GB of Corsair Dominator DDR3

Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB

(2) Western Digital Raptor 74GB

Corsair HX850W

Samsung 22X DVD Burner


All the fans seem to be running great, and the fan speed controllers/LED's all work correctly. Thanks for the help.
