I may have posted this in the wrong section, but anyways..

I have an i7 6700K, water-cooled by an NZXT Kraken X61.

What temp should I be looking at under load with fans on roughly 70%?

If anything, what temps should I not be exceeding under load?

Well, you shouldn't be exceeding 100c. 105c is TJ Maxx for the 6700k so technically you're safe until 105c, at which point your system will turn itself off.

We can't really answer your question because we don't know whether or not you've overclocked your 6700k, we don't know what your fan set-up or airflow is like, and we don't know what kind of load your talking about. Anywhere between 70c and 80c is where I prefer my CPU to stay under load. More than 90c is pushing it, so you should definitely aim to stay below 90c under 100% load IMO.

Sorry for not giving enough specifics but that definitely answered my question, much appreciated!
