Very stable so far and temps are fine also, at least for the QX6700
Idle is around 53C (58-62C with Core Temp). Load under 65C (70-75C with Core Temp). That's with the Zalman 9700 at 2300 RPM.
I'm very happy with the system now, except some strange noise from the vreg. I already contacted EVGA to get a replacement.
slaWter, so right now you are running your QX6700 with a Zalman 9700 at 3.00GHz and seeing temps up to 75C under load? I'm thinking of getting a QX6700 or 6800 CPU but aren't those temps pretty high?
