I was kind of hoping that water would cool me way down but your 59C on water seems high to me with you running at 3.2Ghz. I'm at 3.44Ghz -at idle its ~31C at orthos load ~55. 65C is the ceiling so we're not far from it.
Also, I'm trying to locate some empirical evidence comparing a good air setup to water. Do you know of any such studies? I see a lot of anecdotal fluff or cheapo air setups compared to water but nothing substantive.
An overclocked quad core and a GTX in the same loop is going to stress most watercooling setups, especially when you start bumping up the volts. If his GTX was off the loop his load temps would drop around five to seven degrees(c).
