The block has been lapped, I'm using Artic Silver 2, and my ambient room is usually in the low 90s. Right now my T-Bird 1200 is at 1430, running Prime 95, is at 120f.

Good god! Return the water cooling setup and buy yourself a window air conditioner! It may not cool your computer as well (though it might), but you'll sure be alot more comfortable. :)

See, I thought about doing that, but for the cost of running an air conditioner, I could buy a water cooling setup.
Plus, I am kinda used to the heat.
The room it's in does not have an attic, so it's hot in the summer, cold in the winter....

Good grief man, I get uncomfortable in my house if the temp goes above 77F. I can't imagine 90!

Yeah, kinda sucks but with a fan blowing in the room and a window fan blowing out, it's tolerable.
It's just humid were I live.
