Anyway, the temps on the cpu seem very good then. They will raise a bit with the gpu in the loop. Maybe add a slim rad to the top? Also, it would hurt using the mx-3/4 as its pretty cheap.
No no. I didn't mean to sound rude. I was being funny man. I don't go the mean/rude route and if that's what you got from me then I'm sorry about that. I thought MX-4 is very good stuff since it's non-conductive.

Edit: Do you think 1/2" ID tubing will be better than what I currently have? So I did some research and I will be sticking to the 3/8" ID since there's very minuscule difference between 3/8" ID and 1/2" ID with respect to cooling potential.

I think I will put a 280mm rad (140x2 up top and use my 2xNoctua NF-A14 fans). I just don't know if I should go for a 47mm or 37mm thick rad and at the same time I want the NZXT H630 case but it looks like my case will surfice.
