this is the water system I have - I paid about 35 UK

Cooler Master: Seidon 120V
Aye but that is still 25C degrees under what Menderbarr reported and aye you might be fine with those temps but you also need to remember that in some places in the world it's not that ideal when the computer hits e.g. 95 degrees Celsius. For example in southern India in Kochi degrees stay at 30 Celsius 24/7 so with that in mind I wouldn't want my computer running those degrees.

(Just an example I do know that the OP lives in the US.)

And just as linney suggested a new cooler would be the best bet.
