Anything up to 80C is perfectly fine. Those are normal temps for i7.

Stress-tested with what program? And those temps are fine. You're not even close to the limit.

Just to give you some visual examples for my OC using the hyper 212 with push/pull set up, all possible case fan slots filled and ambient temp of between 20-25C. Sushi Warrior is somewhat right, most people don't want to go over 80C however the threshold for the i7 920s is 100C so you really want to try to avoid going over 85C (personal preference)

I was using everest. as for the oc it was oc'd to 3.3 at 1.3
Only reason vcore is that high is it crashed. it crashes if i go over 3.4 too at a 1.3 vcore seems weird for a d0.

Just did prime95 for around a min and temps were all in 70s at 3.2 and a 1.3vcore
weird thing s core 4 is always 10degrees cooler than all other cores

100C is fine for stock, but when OC'd you want to stay much lower.

No. 100C is the point at which the CPU will start throttling itself to prevent thermal damage. Below that, there is no risk of it occurring. The CPU's built-in thermal protection will prevent any temperature-related damage from happening to the CPU altogether. The only reason you would really want to keep your CPU below 100C is to avoid triggering the thermal throttling which reduces performance.

Indeed, vcore 1.3 seems high. What are your other settings, vtt, QPI, uncore,ram multi, and ram timing? Did you do memtest86+ (at least 10 rounds of #5)?

here are all the voltages as said by e-leet
VCORE: 1.3V
VCORE BOOST: +0
IOH/ICH I/O VOLTAGE: 1.5
ICH VCORE: 1.05
QPI PLL VCORE: 1.1
IOH PLL VCORE: 1.8
CPU PLL VCORE: 1.8
IOH VCORE: 1.1
CPU VTT VOLTAGE: 1.2
DRAM VOLTAGE: 1.5

I used the dummy o/c for it since I'm kinda new to this so any help would be appreciated. I will take a vid or pics of my bios and you guys can see if anything is wrong

But when overclocked, chips can die very easily. I have seen 6800GT's die at 58C. The extra voltage means the chip should stay lower. I would say 85C is a good mark for 1.35v+. Never hurts to be cautious.
