I have no experience with water cooling but sounds like the water's not hitting the GPU properly. Could something be getting into the way of water flow? Is the water block on the GPU making contact with the GPU itself? Is the 80 degrees C a constant temperature or did it go up any higher?

it got to around 85C and if i press on it it comes down a few degrees so i think i might not have put enough thermal paste on it but i wana be sure before i start unplugging everything, i looked at the gpu block and there are some very small bubbles in it but nothing that would affect it that much

DId you screw it on tight enough? Just remember that screwing a water block on an exposed core could destroy it... but still... be careful
