What did you gain from this change? Gpu temps were already below the point of dropping bins.

Lower temps for my CPU. With the water that hot, the CPU cores were getting into the 80s and if I were to run something like P95 they would get into the 90s. Dropping the water temp by 7C also decreasaed the CPU temp by the same amount. Also I made the move to 4k. Before I was gaming at 1440p so the GPU wasent working that hard anyway. Now with 4K the GPU produces a lot more heat and so the temps would have been even higher with the other setup. I cant say I am disappointed. I learned that if you're going to watercool either buy an AIO or go all out. If you half *** it and dont completely max out your cases with rads, then the performance just isint there.
