in your loop compared to ambient? CPU temps are a poor indication of how effective your radiators are, because the problem could reside elsewhere. There's absolutely no way a 5.120mm radiator setup would have trouble cooling a 200 watt heatload. Most high end video cards have around a 200watt heatload.
You might also be overloading the peltier, as an overclocked CPU is capable of much more than a 125watt heatload.
Yeah see thats why i was puzzled about all of this! These are the Monsta radiators why in the world cant they cool this 125W plate. And I'm sorry i mislead you guys... i never tried cooling with both radiators, My bad i was tired :'( But still a 360 should cool it! When my processor is on the 240 and is at the stock 2.4ghz it is about 5 above ambient and when on the 360 it is basically ambient. (if i run the processor through both and overclock to 4.5gHz i can idle at around 45C and under load it'll go to about 60C) And about the peltier overload: thats not the problem for sure because the water going through the cold side was near ambient and the hot side was being cooled by the 360.
So my conclusion is to get another 140mm Monsta radiator and squeeze it into this computer along with a push pull setup. Ill place the peltier plate directly on the processor (ill probably get a 200W) and then ill cool the hot side with 5.120mm and 1.140mm
im hoping thatll help me achieve a better overclock then the 4.65gHz i can get with just water loops.
My goal is 5gHz....

I've been tinkering around with everything. In the picture i was using a 60W one (40W @12v) so yeah.... my 240 handled that one alright but I'm still not getting the chilling effect on the water (only 2C less after it comes out of the cold side water block) D: Good observation though.
