I run Folding@Home 24/7 so I only ever see load temps, the i7 is too awesome to waste time idling. I'm not too thrilled with those temps and I'd really like to overclock some more so I plan on buying a better heatsink sometime soon.
I too have the Antec 900, I moved the drive cages up 2 spots so that the front intake fans move air directly over the motherboard rather than wasting it blowing at the PSU. I'm wondering what the best heatsink would be for the 900 or if the H50 is worth it. The problem with the H50 is that you really don't get to take advantage of the top fan, the radiator is designed for a rear 120mm fan.
see mine is pushing up to the 80's with out any kinda OC, I have my SSD and HDD in the lower bay and the top one empty with the fan blowing across my vid card / mb
I am just trying to get everthing running smoothly before I start in with any kinda real OC
just playing around I pushed it up to 3.45 didnt really effect anything in the way of heat that I noticed
