Thats good stuff when its mixed right...Are you really tightening the block down good and tight? It just seems like its your block running that hot or your rad is kind of plugged up...

EDIT: Does it seem like your pump is pumping good?

because during production little bits can get in there, and they dont really clean them out, they just pack it up.
Clean your whole loop by running a mix of 90% distilled water and 10% vinager in your loop for a few hours.
Then flush it out with pure distilled water.
Make sure its clean then flush it out all the way.
Then add whatever coolant you plan to use.

I bet one thing could probably shave 10C off your temps, it's your hot inlet air temps. With the two 8800 gtxs exhausting like that I wouldn't be suprised if your inlet air temperature is at least 10 or more degrees above ambient air temperature.

Try this...dismount your radiator and just hook it up off to the side of your case where you can get cold air pulling across the rad. I'd be willing to bet money you see a big difference.

Stock 8800s idle at 50-60C, so their exhaust temperature is probably 40C even if your room temps are 20C. If half of the air entering the rad is old hot exhaust from your 8800s or the case, that could result in maybe 10C higher water and processor temps.

With all my temp probes, I was suprised to find how much a difference cool inlet air temperature makes and when I saw you have two 8800s in SLI right below your rad...that's got to be a big part of it.

That method cleans EVERYTHING in your loop.

If you think something is stuck, open up your pump.
By twisting the 655 by the fin shaped ring.
do that then you can see inside.
