Sorry dude, but idle temps are influenced more by your ambient temp that your cooling solution. You need 100% load temps if you want to compare apples to apples.

Also water path? I swear my temps are higher than everyone elses coz my water runs through my GPU first, then through a 120 before going into my motherboard block and finally my cpu.

I'd expect high temps, running a CPU, GPU, and MB off a 1x120mm rad.

mate once the water temp equalises, which all loops do (some more than others), then it won't make f'all difference what your loop order is.

I'm not sure how many times this has been written on this forum, but LOOP ORDER DOES NOT MATTER!!!!

Hopefully that's the last time.
