Lightbulb 3950x with full Hydro X giving me Weird Temps

So as the title says. I've been reading and trying, all kinds of different discussion boards and other options to get these temps lower. I'm at a point where either I accept the current temps and situation and live with it until I upgrade or find a solution. If these are good temps. Please Please put my mind at ease.

I have the entire Hydro X custom loop. My loop order and findings:

Pump -> GPU -> 360 Rad -> CPU -> 420 Rad -> return

BIOS set to full Stock / Ambient temp - 22.3c

This system was built for Gaming. I got the 3950x and not the 9900KS due to the possibility of future streaming, video encoding and all the other fun stuff. It feels like the gaming temps are high. Am I crazy? Or just expect lower temps due to the custom loop? Need guidance.

I havent even overclocked a single thing yet.
