Ceadderman is correct. Your temp measurements must
have been in error.
It's impossible for your system to be running below ambient even at idle. 31c is much more reasonable temp for idle since the water in the RAD cannot go below ambient unless you use some type of refrigeration, just a couple of degrees c above ambient is about right.
This is why it's a good idea to use decent software to measure your temps and post a screen shot of your measurements so people can point out discrepancies. If people don't bother doing that and post a ridiculously low idle like you did earlier I don't generally even respond since there is no hard data to back up the claim.
