Post subject:  Overclocked 5930k temps

Hey guys, I've been using water cooling for years, but always from the pre-assembled AIO units (its a time thing). More recently I've been using the H240X and now the H240X2 Prestige for its looks - both which yield roughly the same temperature results.

So, here in Australia, with an ambient room temperature of 25 degrees, my 5930k overclocked to 4.2 Ghz @ 1.19v and 64GB RAM (8x8) on a Rampage V Extreme board idles between 38-40 degrees according to the OC Panel - which I've always felt to be on the warm side as idle is around 1.96Ghz.

During load, when using Handbrake to encode a video file, when all cores are at 100%, it gets to 61-63 degrees. Both the H240X and H240X2 Prestige gave the same results.

How do these temperatures sound? Often with custom water loops, reviewers talk about temperatures in the 50s under load.
