Turn the fans on medium and high and see how much the temps drop at each setting.

Could the the rad be air locked?
The reason I asked is because a portion of the rad is higher than the res.

I hope this helps.
Hey HalifaxPete,
Thanks for all replies by the way everyone!!!
I think i figured out what is going wrong with my set up. The exaust fan on the back of the case and the Power supply unit are all blowing a whole lot of hot air into the radiator. Now I am F..ed because I have to rethink how to mount this huge radiator somewhere else. Any ideas will be very welcomed:help:.Thanks a lot again and I will keep you guys updated.

Okay guys, I just tried getting some of the air from the rad and here are the new reading. I also wanted to say that my room temps were wrong at my first post.
the temp in my room were about 25 celsius.
Same thing with the new reading. I guess that once I figure out a way to get my rad away from all the hot air that's coming from the PSU and the exaust fans, I will nail it!! Now this temp is starting to make sence right? Computer in idle and all three fans on about 1200rpm
Any comments?
Thanks again!

Much better temps already. Sure you don't want to try adding another 3x fans (even quiet ones)?

OT: Nice bass. Ibanez Saber?

I will try to add 3 more but do you think that it's going to make a big diference?
I am going to google it and see what people have gotten when adding 3 more fans.
Let's see what happens.!!

Actually Metal, you got a very clean and nice looking setup I'll have to admit.. A little bit wire management on the psu cables (hide those red things, from the green effect :P)..

edit: Do you have at least one 120mm on the top, or space to modify one.. If you do, you could mount you're rad there using the rad box as well..

Hahahah..that big rad at your window will definitely freeze all the heat waves that dare to bother your set up! Good job man. But temperatures went down a little here in toronto and my temps went down as well. it seems that this corner where my computer sits doesn't circulate a lot of cold air and to be honest I can't move this giant anywhere else. But yeah, it would be great to have this thing close to my window to breathe lots of cold air!!
