I would suspect low flow rates also. You have two waterblock (cpu, nb) and a radiator. That setup probably has a large amount of resistance, and you have a smaller pump.

Faster flow would equal lower temps. Also, smaller tubing (3/8") would also cause higher resistance.

Like Intrepid said, check the flow, and make sure you are getting good contact between the waterblock and cpu (lapping, AS3).
