Well I got the leak fixed and got everything put back in the case. However, I noticed the temps were getting pretty hot (60 degress celsius) and I found that the radiator was pretty warm even with the fans on full blast. Right now the rad is just sitting on the top of the case with 3 fans pulling air off it, should I raise it off the case with some standoffs to help lower the temps?

EDIT: just put two hard drives under the rad to lift it up and the temps dropped down to about 50 degrees celsius
