Does the block have enough pressure on the CPU? Too much or too little will cause it to rise. Also did you put any thermal compound on the CPU? Don't use the koolance stuff have to go with something better.

There's a lot of stuff that can affect that. Are there big air bubbles in the loop? Maybe trapped in the rad? Res completely full (i.e. pump isn't shooting air bubbles around)? Your fans working correctly on the rad, or is there a fan controller that might not be strong enough to push the high CFM fans in there somewhere? And as Ace mentioned - TIM and pressure can definitely cause it too. Also, you've got high CFM fans with a low FPI rad. You're losing a lot of cooling potential from those fans by not going with a 30-FPI rad. Doubt that's the cause here, but if you're okay with putting up with the noise those suckers make, you might as well get the full benefit from it. Lastly, really dumb question, but I gotta ask - you are reading temps in Celsius, right? Not Fahrenheit? Just making sure, you know... I'd probably do something stupid like that myself. :)

usen the evga tp. good pressure no kinks no air bubbles usen the Reservoir and Pump, RP-1005. Only thing i can think of is i have the quick disconnects im ordering new conections and inline watr temp to see what the water temp is and go from there
