Another thing i should mention. since i dont know anything about your previous computer...

if your GPU was watercooled as well as your CPU, and your CPU was in the loop AFTER your GPU, your GPU could be heating the water up past the point of the CPUs "actual" running temp. In effect, your CPU is then worse off on water than on air, though 80 degrees load temp is still perfectly fine.

I've seen this happen with my own wc system. running prime95 gave me much cooler temps on my cpu than running prime95 and furmark burn in utility at the same time
