Anyone watercooling a SB-E 3820?

I have an Intel Sandy Bridge Extreme 3820 presently in a single loop along with full blocks on a RIVE mobo and full blocks on a pair of 690's in SLI. I am using a MCP 35x2 pump (2 MCP35x's combined in one housin) and (1) Black Ice GTX 360, (1) Black Ice GTX 240 for rads. Fans are 5 2400rpm Noiseblocker Eloops. All packed into a corsair 800d. (CPU block is EK Supremacy full Ni, MB & GPU blocks are EK Ni as well)

Currently running my 3820 OC'd to 4.9ghz (stable) and seeing idle temps around 30c, full load low to mid 60's(after several hours of prime95). In a few days I plan on placing the CPU & MB on their own loop with the 360 rad.

I am wondering what type of temps others are gettting on their liquid cooled 3820's and also what they are clocking them at?

CPU and GPU temps are greatly dependent on ambient temp.

I have the same set up with 2 GTX 670 in SLI. I got a 420mm Black Ice GTX Gen 2 Extreme Radiator and a 240mm XSPC EX radiator in push/pull. CPU block is XSPC Raystorm. CPU temp stay around 30ish idle with ambient temp at 25ish. When oced at 4.875 ghz @ 1.375V, CPu temp stay around 60C 100% load stressed test with Intel burn Test.

imo mid 60's is nice CPU temperature, personaly I would not make things more complicated with 2 loops..
Also you loose redundancy incase of pump failure, unless you plan on having 4pumps.
