So I've had my build for about 2-3 years and it's always had, well, high water temperatures under load.

i7 4770k @ 4.5GHz 1.25v
2x GTX 780ti's with a small overclock

The CPU will always stay under 70C and the GPUs will always stay under 55C.

The components are all crammed in a Corsair 350D with a top 240x30mm rad and a front 240x45mm rad. Under typical gaming loads like BF4 (what I consider a full gaming load) water temps always creep up to about 50C but never over. I'm more less here to write a note that all components I have are still fine, including pump and most importantly, tubing. I used the PrimoChill Advanced LRT. Just to share with others that worry if their liquid temp is too high.

Happy Watercooling thumb.gif

What is the Delta T?
That's the difference between the water temp and the temp of the air entering the rad(s).

Rising water temp because your tags are not dissipating enough of the heat load. Whats the fan setup and rpm? You might need to crank up the fan speed a bit to cool all that with two slim 240s.

About 25C.

That's a problem.

From looking at the post above I'd guess your problem is air flow.
Four intakes and one exhaust?

Well I've tried multiple fan setups and all yield a 1-2C difference, I chalk it up to cramming so much into a small mATX chassis with only 480mm of rad space.

(Temp is the same even if case window is open, so it's not like I'm "pushing" too much air in or anything.

Agreed. 4 intakes might not be a problem, the exhaust though may be. Again, I'm just basing my opinion off of the picture of your case. but it looks like INTAKE might be a big problem. If your rads cannot breathe a lot of cold air INTO them they cannot dissipate their heat OUT of them. Ambient temps of course play a game here as well, but I dont thing that 30C ambient temps are the problem.
