I've been told that watercooling should give you a difference of ~15c between ambient (room) temp and CPU.

Before I go any further trying to improve my numbers, I'd like to see what everyone else is getting. Please show your ambient, CPU and difference (in celsius). Try to get your air temp just outside of your rad intake.

Ambient: 28
CPU (idle): 41
Diff: +13
