in my opinion, if u can get the airflow to move around the case, itll be cooler, rather than trying to get fans to blow over parts, try to create airflowing, like a convection current

Attach 2 of the 120mm fans you mentioned onto the side WITH dust filters and set your H80 as exhaust because from the looks of it, you have a reference card which draws hot air out through the vents in the back. If you DO set the H80 as intake, as the hot air rise it will be sucked right back into the case through the fans.

I'm thinking about putting it as intake to draw air from the outside with a dust filter on it.

would be nice if I had something that would tell me the ambient air temp inside (like a fan controller)

I looked at teh NZXT sentry-2 but apparently it has this 1 problem where it won't work with all fans... upto 10v

Was thinkign about 3 of these (2 on the side panel fans, 1 on rad intake. and I think 1 fan will have to be outside the case, gonna see when i have the fitment thing going on)

with this fan.. (on the side panel)

I wish I knew the specs of the fans that the stock H80 are...

For filters, you should check out those DEMCiflex Magnetic Dust Filters.
You can always switch from Intake to Exhaust and vise versa and see which one gives better temps.

Edit: The stock fans for the H80 are great but loud fans @ max.

Any idea of their cfm?

It pisses me off that it's so hard to get to that button to control it

Link to those magnet filters?

There are 2 types.
Round & Square

I read somewhere on the forums that the Corsair fans that comes with the H80 had very high static pressure which is great when cooling the rad and of course @ the highest the fans are pretty loud.

My H70 dropped my load temps by up to 40 degrees Celsius and its exhausting air.

Either way, the H series are awesome....

Yep, Ive got the Demci Flex filters for my HAF-X, they are great but dont think dust will no longer get in...

I recently swapped my H60 p/p to exhaust with all other fans as intake and dropped load temps about 3C on both CPU and GPU. Probably depends a lot on you case, not sure how that one is configured.

Shouldnt it always be exhaust? Especially if you have an H100 in the top of your case.... it would be really dumb to make those intake fans because hot air rises.
