is the 1.09v on the i7 at idle or at load it will down volt when it steps down my i7 is close to that at idle but under full load it gets upto 1.34 if that the case then your temps are normal in comparison to my system i have one more 470 and 8x120 rads

Nope, the highest it reaches under load is 1.10v. And thats peak, it usually averages about 1.09v. The vcore at idle according to CPUz is actually 1.088v ≈ 1.09v.

So far my possibilities list (in my mind) is:
►cpu block is too restrictive
►too much/little TIM/bad seating of cpu block
►fans aren't giving enough air flow through the rads

btw I'm using IandH's silver-water-stuff, so there isn't really any chemicals that could be restricting flow or heat transfer.

to explain more why your gpu is cooler.. its like charlie said plus the gpu is throtteling itsself very drastically compared to the cpu.. so it reduces a little heat.

Maybe something in your loop is clogged from radiator flux? Look at the waterblock, does it look nice and clean and pristine?

another thing.. how many fans do you have? are all three radiators on push/pull? how is your airflow in the tower and how is the cable management?
this is very strange.. your rig sounds like a motorbike at 1200+rpm .. ok not like a motorbike but its too loud for me. i had a gtx 285 and a 1ghz oc running just on 600-700 rpm. what fans do you have? cfm and preassure and this stuff?!

otherwise i have no clue so spontaniously without more information :/

I just recently (2 weeks ago) redid my loop, changed fluid, cleaned everything, and the block is clean. There had been a little gunk on it, but I cleaned it out. I flushed the radiators and my res and the blocks, so I don't think that is the problem.

As for fans, they are rated for something like 69 cfm I believe. On the 240 rad they are set up to pull into the case, and on the 120 rad, it pushes. It is a bit loud, but my speakers are sitting on my desk so they more than cover the fan noise. My rad fans are CM fans.

Air flow is decent. Right now the front fan on my case (CM HAF932) is blowing out, the side fan is blowing in, the rad fans are all blowing in, and I have a bottom fan that blows out. Could the problem be too much positive pressure? The bottom fan definitely takes most of the exhaust.

Also, cable management is decent, but not the best. I'll try to get a picture up of my internals when I can, but it will be a crappy cellphone picture because I dont have my camera right now.

I'm thinking my tubing might be kinda haphazard, but you guys can judge that when I get some pics up

Ok, so here are a few pictures. See what you can make out of them. I'll try to get some better ones when I have my actual camera instead of my phone.

EDIT: I also just was able to drop my voltage to 1.07v... Haven't gotten to stress test it yet, but so far so good.

Bump/Update

So I've just tried reseating the block and reapplying the TIM...

And it did nothing for my temps. I tested both the block and the processor with a razor blade, and both are pretty flat.

If I decided to try lapping this block, what grit sandpaper should I go up to?

Thanks for your help guys.
