Well, the CPUBurn has been burning away for ~20 mins. Not really watching the voltages but it's gotten the CPU temp up to 52C now. The rad and tubing is just slightly warm to the touch, so my coolant temp is probably in the mid 30's somewhere. I just need to get that heat energy off of the CPU core and into the rad faster. I don't want to go into the below-ambient (or below-freezing) cooling just yet because I don't wanna deal with condensation, but a pelt on the CPU should bring the core temp down and bump the coolant temp up. And the hotter the rad is relative to ambient, the more heat it can/will dissipate. (exhaust air from the rad doesn't feel even slightly warm)
