I'd definitely get better temps if the h50 was pulling in fresh air, but then I'd be sacrificing the overal temperature of the case with the warm air it's pulling in. The front 140mm moves a lot of air, enough to keep my graphics card and other components cool in such a small case. I could definitely get a few degrees cooler on my CPU if I used the top as an intake but I'm more concerned about the GPU etc. Also physics wont let me use the top fan for anything but warm air exhaust. It's science, really. tonguesmiley.gif

Ideally I could put a nice 25mmx120mm fan in the front and hope that the air coming through was reasonably cool and continue to exhaust out of the top, but I'd have to make a new mounting bracket of the filter and smaller, that's something I might do.
