My System Specs

Default should i add another rad

i currently am cooling a gtx 590 classy hydro copper and an i7 2600k @ 4.5 Ghz. my case is CM Haf-X. the order in wich its cooled is rad/ res combo to GPU then CPU then rad back to res/pump. I am using an XSPC 360 mm rad on top with 3 120's pushing and 2 200's pulling. my GPU highest temps under full load is 47C and cpu highest under prime 95 58C. i dont know the size of rad i can fit in the front and i could fit single 140 in the back. could there be any significant difference in temp ie above a 5C difference.

any tips/ advice much appreciated

Try Prime and EVGA OC at the same time and check your temps.

Whats your highest gaming temps.

Looks good if the don't go to much higher.

I like to hit the cpu 1st when cooling but that's personal preference... and only because the cpu TDP is much lower than a video card.
