I only go up to 30*C on the hottest of summer days for an ambient. But if the case has poor airflow I'd be annoyed.
More so with my array of HDD's, as without proper air flow they are heat dumps.
Well, I'm on stock Intel cooler until my new res comes in but it will be a while since its on back order. But I did order a Prolimatech Megahalems to test and that will arrive on Monday. But with Intel HS I'm getting 45-48c idle and 55-60c on load on the cpu and both gpu's 60c idle and 65-70c on load fan at 30%. Those results surprised me TBH. I'll report back with the after market HS is installed.

You can if you mod the case, but you can easily do 360 up top, and mod the bottom for a 240

The 840 has already had a chance to make its impressions so I'm guessing many of you are familair with it. Money differences aside is it worth a swap to the Corsair?
I'll have to agree with Chunky_Chimp, I have both case and I love them both. There the best I've ever had
It really comes down to what are your need. What I really like about the 800D is the black interior, it's huge (great for WC) the cable management is pure awesome and the hot swap bay is great
It's really just what you need.
