I kind of missed how you rationalized your room not getting hot simply because you are cooling components with water.That heated air off the rads has to be going somewhere and that somewhere is the room the radiator is located in.
Nah. Water cooling is safe as long as you do everything properly and check for leaks before you add your major components. I have a little 300w psu I jump to power on the pump only and that's how I check for leaks. You don't have to power on the whole rig to leak test. If you get any liquid on your components just clean them up and let them air dry for a few days or a week.

I'll keep a tab on temps. This is my ninth, or tenth (I've lost count) loop so I have some experience. I'm sure everything will be fine. I have my rig next to a window so I can vent through that window and not recirculate hot air in the room.
