Did you even look at the pictures in my post?

The other day I pulled the stock cooler off to water cool it but I needed the G80 plate for the MCW60, had to order one. So at that point I put ceramique on the stock cooler. Last night the bracket came in so I used AS5 with my water block since I always get better temps. If you go back to the post on the last page I have pics of the card with the water block installed.

I was just stating that I had changed to AS5 as well as my ambient temps. It was warm today and hot in my office which is why my idle temp was like 38. Tonight its about 35 idle and when the GPU drops to 51mhz idle drops to about 32. My load temp is 47c max now on water.

here are the pics again -
