waterblock temps look weird.
 
so the idle temp of my 4870x2 is 26-27c and 29-30c. heres were i think it gets weird, i loaded up f@H on it and its running at 99% usage on the one core. it goes to 33c and just hit 34c after 24 hours. temp is by ccc.

Maybe it's just staying deliciously cool under water?

Those temps don't seem unreasonable, my 8800 Ultra would idle at about 33-37 and load at 45, so you may just be fine. Someone who has W/Ced a 4870x2 will chime in soon with more info(soon I will join the ranks!).

My 4870 would idle at 32 and load at 38 with a FC block, in the same loop as my CPU on a 240 rad. I think your rad is bigger/better than mine, so you're not out to lunch.

sounds good to me and i have it on a seprate 2x120 rad.

That seems fine. I get the same sort of thing with my 4870's and the EK FC blocks. The only temps that go up are the slave readings in GPUZ-i.e the power regulators.
