You would be correct if I was only running say a 240 or 360 rad.
But I'm running three 480mm rads, 2 water blocks, 13ft soft tube. Just a guess my rads are capable 2500w-3000w of heat dissipation, and my CPU/GPU only produce 600-700w of heat at full system stress test load(about 450w-500w while gaming).
Water flow was not great but useable with 1 pump, got my 2nd pump last week. HUGE difference in head pressure

which will improve the heat transfer to the metal of the block, but then you would need adequate airflow to get it out of your case, which again won't remedy the heat being in your room. My twin 2080 Ti's run at 44c at 100% utilization but man if they aren't warm to the touch, only way to reduce heat in your room is reduce the ambient temp, improve airflow in your case or figure out a way to intake cooler air which could cause condensate.
Well found out about 3 days ago my hotspot problem was mounting... Only took about 10 tries to get it right. Hotspot is 30-40c now.
when I made the OP I had only my CPU on water, the 2nd post is a year later
Im running Thermal Grizzly thermal pads on everything that is passive/air cooled, Liquid metal on the CPU Core and Kryonaut on the GPU Core.
Funny story about the stupid heat my CPU/GPU is capable of putting out even on water.. Last winter my furnace ran of of fuel a few times. and my PC was the only heat source for half my house, sub freezing outside.... Never dropped below 65f(18c) inside after 12h.
Its way more efficient then any 1500w space heater I have ever used...
Now my heat problem is not gone, but its manageable now.
