Yeah.. I am actually shivering, because it is cold.. the ambient is around 19 right now, and RealTemp always displays up to 80... know for a fact that it is getting fresh water at all times, as it is currently getting hit with the second pump directly.
Not sure what it going on, but to go from a 120mm CLC that costed about $95 over to a full custom loop with lots of radiator space and see the exact same temperatures does not make sense to me.

At idle, Asus said 25, realtemp said 32... under load, I am seeing 60 on Asus and 72-80 (dependent on the core). I am starting to think I may still have an air bubble somewhere. With two pumps, it is dumping the bubbles all the way to the bottom of the res, and I am not sure how to get that to stop so that the bubbles don't make it back in... I tried turning the pumps down with the PWM controller I bought, but that isn't helping.
