I don't know much about the Seidon, but I do know those idle temps are high. Maybe clean the dust from the rad and find better fans for it, and re paste the CPU after cleaning off the old paste from the CPU and CPU cooler. With fans, the amount of air is not nearly as important as The pressure they produce to push the air through the radiator. The best fans, well that a story for another thread. Everyone has their preference. But find ones with high static pressure and a noise level you can live with.

When it comes down to fans agree a lot of personal preferences and depending on the application and type of Radiator being used either air or liquid topic for another post.

Agree your idle temps are high and the system may need a good cleaning and or Thermal Grease replaced. Should be around 25C to 32c depending on the Core in the CPU. Just checked the temps on a 2600K & a 4930K at Idle. Cores should be with in 5 to 7 degrees C depending on CPU & Thermal Grease. Example 25C thru 32C at Idle. Not all Chip Sets Are Created Equal.

CPU Temps:
80C is in the blue safe Long Life.
85C Yellow
95C Red Can run at 95c advanced O. Clockers only not recommended short life.
