I use corsair link to verify the pump is functioning at 3,000 rpm (which I believe is max) and I can feel the pump always working by putting my hand on the block. Also, one tube is hot water, one tube is cold water, and I can feel a distinct difference
Is the Radiator putting out hot air? If your temps are approaching 100C you should feel lots of hot air exiting the Radiator.

Unless of course the coupling between the CPU/Block is bad... I assume you removed the plastic protective film over the copper block before install (assuming it even had one)?
