I would try re-seating your water block....Make sure it's mounting flat on your core...AS5 it bolt your block down and then take it back off and see if it's spread evenly...If it is clean it up and re-seat it...Be sure not to use to much AS5...EDIT: Make sure none of your tubing is kinked any where...Oh yeah make sure all the bubbles are out to...

Could you take a picture of your loop?

And what is the model of your Swiftech kit to be exact?

No as long as you have fans mounted to it ....I'd have them pulling through....Do you have a lot of little bubbles in your lines?EDIT: What are you using to measure your temp's with? A lot of times software monitors are way off...Check your temps in bios and see what they say....

be careful with internally mounted radiators. i had a koolance aquian icm-505 that was giving me 45c idle temps. when i removed it from the case and sat it on the floor, my temps dropped to 30c.
