Are you running your card at stock clocks? That's still a bit high, but not much, for your loop with only your CPU/GPU in the loop and all that radiator. How slow are you running your fans? Could just be that, but I have about half as much radiator as you and I have my CPU and two 670s @1287mhz in my loop, and with the same ambient, our temps are about the same. Since my water delta isn't too low, I'd guess 8c at the lowest and most likely around 10c, my temps should be quite a bit worse than yours with all that radiator space. So either your fans are running much slower than mine (I'm running my AP-15s at full speed), your block needs to be remounted, maybe the TIM you are using is no good (I'm just running MX-4), or simply the EK block does not perform nearly as well as AC's (which I doubt is the case). I wouldn't say your temps are bad, I just would expect them to be significantly lower than mine.
