Water Cooled Rigs

What is the temp of the water is before it goes into the rad on your loop?? Mine is about 79d F with a room temp about 72d F.

Not sure yet, but tomorrow I'll borrow our surface temp reader and find out
MSI 970A-G43
AMD Phenom II X4 965BE @ 3.5 GHz
10 GB DDR3 1333 CAS-7
GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB

I'll grab my surface temp reader and try to get you a number. I'm sure there are plenty of variables that can affect this. For reference I think my entire loop is about 6' long and I'm using silver Tygon 3/4" OD, 1/2"ID. I also have my GPU and CPU in that loop. CPU is an Intel C2D X6800. GPU is an HIS HD4850. Case is a Thermaltake Armor. I'd imagine that mine is barely above room temp, but then again my comp room is freaking warm!!! lol
