Default Can't get RAM running with 2000Mhz without high QPI


I have been trying to get the RAM running at its designed speed for quite a few days now without much luck.

My setup is:

F3-16000CL9T-6GBRH (2Gx3) 6GB
Asus P6X58D-E (Latest BIOS)
Corsair HX750
F3-Spinpoint 1TB
XFX - 5870
Noctua U12P-SE2

I managed to get my system running for 6 hours after i had to abort with standard clock and XMP profile for the memory if i adjust the QPI to 1.5.
It seems very high. Is this out of your guys experience "normal" and within the norm ?
My temps where in the 80's. The guy from my local shop said thats far way to high, you should be under 60 (Sounds a bit low to me )

It pushes my heat already up a fair bit having the QPI that high so i won't be able to overclock the CPU too much with these settings.

I also managed to get it overclocked to 4Ghz with the ram running at close to 1700 Mhz with the temps beeing 76-77C with CPU and QPI at 1.35

I haven't tried the combination of both but i am a bit worried about the temps.
What is a good temp to run 24/7 id i wanna keep it for 3-5 years ?

Are these temps normal with a good Air Cooler?
