70c on the gpus? Seems high to me but it seems people are getting like high 80s/low 90s on air cooling with those cards so it doesn't seem that bad.

I do however, have another 360 rad from EK, which has 1 pipe punctured due to a mistake when I picked the screws to put in (I accidentally picked a slightly longer one for 1 of the screw before).
Any idea on how I can fix and use it? >.<

More rads = less fans.

I have a double and a triple radiator in my system. Water temperature idles at 27-29C. My MCP355 pump only turns on when CPU gets above 50C to 50%. It goes to 100% when temps reach 70 (not that it ever will). During benches, GPUs never hit over 45C, CPU never hits over 55C. System is virtually silent with low CFM fans due to having those two radiators. Hell, I only turn on the fans of my external dual 120mm radiator to 50% and never really have to turn on the fans on my triple internal rad.

Easy fix. Scrape some pain off where the hole is. Tin it, add some flux, solder. Touch up with paint. Done.

Iroda micro jet torch works pretty well only about $15 at Can Tire Micro Jet Torch | Canadian Tire

Clean the paint off around the wound and slap on some flux heat it up and apply solder(you may want to do this on it's side so you don't fill up the channel by accident). If you don't do a lot of soldering/plumbing work Get something like this: Bernzomatic Silver Solder Repair Kit | Canadian Tire

Good luck and make sure you do the soldering over a surface you don't want to damage(carpet, nice table, your lap) because it's easy to spill solder when it's all melted.
