I believe most go with 65C, I go with 70C on my i7 920. But again, the thermal cut-off is 100C on i7's I believe.

And you should run Prime95 for at least an hour to get more accurate results.

i'M too lazy to run it for 1 hour :(
But it isn't a huge overclock and I thought it would run a bit cooler. How am I going to get it to the highy anticipated 4 GHz like every1 does with this cooler :(?

You'll need at least a good hour for a run or you aren't getting any good results and with P95 make sure its smallfft test

Any common cooling solution relies on air as the main heat transfer medium. As such, when comparing to others, you really have to take into account what their room temperature is.

However it's likely that as you push voltages, the temperatures shouldn't climb too much. The H70 can carry a higher heatload than a typical heatsink can.
