Actually, the water temperature reaching a cooling point that equalizes through the loop. The only way of properly preventing the GPU/CPU from influencing temperature levels is to have 2 separate loops; one for the GPU and one for the CPU. It's better as well if you ever have to change either component with proper shut-off valves in place.

I had no problems cooling off my old i7970 with the dual GPU 5970 with my 120.3-
4.2ghz on the cpu. Only problem was the room got toasty
