Is there some stress test or anything I should run? Or should I just go get steam or install whatever I want and stuff. I have my required drivers downloaded as well.

If you're overclocking OCCT is a decent CPU stress test, I haven't heard anything about its gpu test but it has one as well.

I usually run Intel Burn Test or HyperPi for the lulz, then do some gaming.

Do NOT run prime95 if you have a haswell processor. Is not made for them and it can damage it.

I do have a haswell but I didn't run prime95, im using an i5 4670 and my idle cpu temps (the 4 seperate ones) tend to be between 30-37. Is that alright? Haven't been able to play anything intensive yet. (i'm downloading crysis 2 but its going to be a while) But while playing Limbo with a load of around 40% I get around 45-48 cpu temp. How am I doing? I still have a couple of case fans that haven't come in yet.
