I know i've only been running for a few minutes, but these temps seem better than they previously were.

Also, just to ask, which pump do you use for your loop?
I have a D5 with bitspower top. Those temps now are much more reasonable, maybe that's all you needed was to tighten the block down more.

is your water hitting your GPU first, then going to your CPU? Surely Not... 38c water hitting your cpu but still getting high 70s for cpu temps??? If you can turn your fans off and still get close to the same temps, I would say that your problem is certainly not that you need more RAD, or even more fans for your rad.

I think your problem lies, most likely in your CPU block. Either the block itself or the connection. I would try Indigo Extreme first. Its pricey but cheaper than upgrading the block. EK HF has a primitive mounting system but it will give you great temps.

Could be your flow rate but I would say that is less likely the culprit.

If you have 5x120 Rad on a CPU and Single GPU, I think you have plenty of RAD.
