very nice setup by the way.

Nice! Is that only a 120mm radiator? I ran on a single RX120 rad just to show people you can run an overclocked cpu just fine on a single 120. Good work!

With such a high ambient, HT on and a single 120mm rad, I'd say your temps are pretty decent actually.

Your setup looks like you are trying to exhaust the radiator out the bottom of the case? You might get better results if you can get the rad in the top and even better with a bigger case, RX240+RX120 and add the GPU to the loop or bite the bullet and mount a 240 externally along with the internal 120. I think there is a lot of heat not getting dumped out of that case.

thanks for the advise. as for now i am on a tight budget (my wife is going to kill me). the fans on the rad are intake from the bottom. the fans you see on top and back of the case are all exhaust. i also have a 140mm intake in front.
