I don't think that's supposed to change anything as far as air cooling goes is it :O?

No, I doubt it.

There is a lot you can do to mitigate this "issue" or how I like to see it, just make it better than it already is You can start by adding some good fans to get the air moving a bit better in the case, and install a bay cooler as well. I just went through the same issue you did so if you need any help let me know.
I think I will need some help. I'm not entirely sure how air cooling works but I need more info on water coolilng plus it's more expensive. So I want to make do with air cooling for now then water cool it later. Btw, how is the H50? I've heard good and bad things about it. Leaks and stuff

I've been very pleased with the H50 I have in my 800D. Used in multiple setups, rear intake, rear exhaust - currently have the rad of it mounted in the middle top 120mm slot as exhaust and set the 140mm on the back to intake and this has resulted in best temps (for me). That said, I am replacing it in the next week or so with a 'real' WC loop; not cause I'm unsatisfied with it but as more of a hobbyist, hey I've never done that sort of thing.

From everything I've heard/read anecdotally on these forums and others, I think worrying about a leak is pretty small concern for the H50 - I mean, it is water sure so there is always the chance, but dont abuse it or mod it and I'm sure it'll be fine. Also seems that Corsair is really backing it up, so worse comes to worse and if something DID occur, I'm willing to bet Corsair would make you whole.

I love my H50. There has only been one documented leak that I've herd of. If your H50 leaks Corsair will replace damaged parts for you. Asetek makes the H50 and Asetek leaks are very rare. Here is my setup (⇇Fan⇇Shroud⇇H50⇇Fan), and some idle temps around the low 70s°F ambient temperature. You might wana check out The Corsair H50 Accessory Permalink for more shroud and front drive bay fan ideas.




More info on Asetek coolers:

Again Corasir doesn't even make the H50, Asetek does. The engineers who make the H50 recommend the their unit to be in exhaust, for good reason to. I say listen to a trained engineer, not a untrained benchmarker at Corsair. The intake vs exhaust is more based on your GFX card and Case. Corsair recommends intake, but Asetek the company who actually makes the H50 recommends exhaust. Like I said it really has to do with your GFX card and case. If you have a GFX with an air handler that blows hot air out the rear of your case. Its a good idea to have the H50 in exhaust. If you have a Vapor-X type of GFX card with no air handler, its better to be intake. Also do you have a place for that hot air to go once its in your PC case. For the guys who have an air handlers on their GFX cards and their H50s in intake, need to be warned. Do to the season and AC'd rooms, hot air from your GFX card is mixing with the cool air inside the radiator of the H50. This mixing creates condensation. That condensation is moisture that is now being blowing into your PC. But don't pay me no mind, feel free to try any way you like, and post about it. That's what this site is here for.

Yeah I just got this case as well as an H50, and am deciding if I want to exhaust it out the top as well and turn the rear fan into intake
