I prefer 7 zip WinRAR is kind of obtrusive if you ask me. It adds like 7 items to the context menu.

Will be getting back to this. Just been really tied up the last few days. Thanks for the input so far.

EDIT:
Okay I have finally gotten LinX installed on my computer. What settings do I need to set everything at in order to get an accurate test? I don't want to mess something up.

The default settings should be fine.

I have no idea if I did this correctly. Right before I took the screenshot, my temperatures on the first column of the core temps were reading about 70. Then they just shot down to 50. That happened a few times within that 2 and a half minutes.

Yep, you did it right.
Only thing is you need to let LinX run longer, bump up the Memory setting a bit and let it finish then post another screenshot.

That's normal, the temperatures always drop down for a few seconds in between the runs. You definitely need a heatsink before doing any overclocking.

This is a decent budget heatsink.
Thermalright CoGage True Spirit 4-Heatpipe Core i7 CPU Cooler (Socket LGA 1156** / LGA 1366) - FrozenCPU.com

or this one, it also needs a Skt 1366 retention bracket.
Sunbeam Core-Contact Freezer Universal CPU Cooler (CR-CCTF) - FrozenCPU.com

Sunbeam LGA 1366 Core i7 Socket Retention Bracket Set (CR-LGA1366) - FrozenCPU.com

Those are the best choices in the $40-$50'ish range. If you want to spend more let us know

FINALLY got around to doing this. So WITHOUT overclocking or doing anything do my temps look okay? I wan't to start in a good place before I mess with anything else. I also want to keep my case really cool, especially since I'm about to add another GPU, and will be looking more into this overclocking stuff.
