I'd do a few CPU block remounts, look at the TIM spread when you take the block off and see if it looks nice and even. Make sure there are no mobo components preventing the block from making good contact with the chip.

If you just set this up you might want to make sure all the air is out of your loop first. Shake your rad, or lightly slap it to knock off air bubbles.

Shake your pump to make sure it doesn't have a big bubble in it preventing you from getting full flow.

Tilt your rig around and see if you can work any air out of your block.

I used to drop a couple of C across my rads, I use high cfm fans though to.

I've used single pumps since then and its more like a 1C or 1.5C across the rad with single pump, CPU block and 1 rad. But still a C or two is a C or two.

When your OC'ing every degree counts, especially when its as simple a thing as that.

The only time I wouldn't run it res-rad-cpu-is if it took a lot of extra tubing to get it in that configuration, it would defeat the purpose then.

I've tried my CPU jet blocks right after the pump and I just didn't get as good of temp's with my rig.

Thats always something that is easily tried if you want to, try it both ways and see what works the best for you.

Thats 90% of this stuff, you just have to try out various configs and see what it does for you, I've never had 2 rigs run exactly the same.

EDIT: You just need to keep working on your loop, the temps should come done.

Thats not a lot of rad for the load you have on it. You may want to try some higher cfm fans, or do a push-pull if you have the room for it.

I don't know what cfm fans those are or there thickness.

I wouldn't use anything smaller then this myself on a rad..86cfm Pana .These are what I use...115cfm Pana

Shrouds are good for a couple of extra C..How To: Make any Sized shroud in 2 minutes .How To: Build A Performance Shroud

If you want to run lower cfm fans you need to have a lot of rad surface area to still get good temp's.

For really good OC'ing performance I use a lot of surface area with decent cfm fans.

It wouldn't hurt to try some block remounts also and make sure all the air is out of your loop.

You might want to start a thread on it and we would be better able to help you there.
