    i have used realTemp instead when putting it under load using prime95 and temps are the same.

    i have a zerotherm air cooler cooling my q9550 @ 3.8Ghz and its getting close to the same temps.
    57 C max, idle 37- 40 C.

    ill post screens latter, at school right now

    the temps look real good... >.>....i see nothing wrong with the load temps at all.. idle temps mean almost nothing on top of it ur only getting 15 c delta so that's more than kick ass ;) and very nice setup interesting way of orienting ur res may i ask how is it different loops? unless u had 2 pumps and so on.. (too lazy to try to trace ur tubing)

    Why are you using Everest and CoreTemp to read an Intel CPU temp? Use RealTemp, way more accurate.

    They are off anyways but that is still a valid point, especially being the difference in ambient temperatures.

    temps with real temp prime 95 @ 100% cpu usage

    basic slight overclock 3.3Ghz
    the same temps occur at the base clock of 2.8Ghz

    also do you run ur case open or closed up? cause there could be a negative pressure inside the cause affecting the amount of cooling n so on.. but still 57 -60 c on an oced i7 is still pretty respectable temps ;) if i remember correctly i had 2x 220 swifty rads with xigmatech fans paired with a gtz SE on my i7 920 at 4.0 reach about .. 65-68 c (just cooling the cpu with 4 x 120 rad space xD) idle was.. around.. 36~ or something similiar .. was usin a d5b pump.

    edit: temps won't increase too much until u start addin voltage to ur i7 ;)

    Nice setup.

    All I have to say is:

    yeah i guess so, i do have the case open at the moment. but i do suppose those temps are fair.

    and duffman, you nailed it!
