For what it's worth, temps jumped 5-7C with my H80 in my 550D (vs my FT01). However, getting a D14 solved that problem and actually kept temps about 1C under the H80 when in my previous FT01. Guess the D14 just prefers slower fans and can disperse the heat more efficiently than the H80. Now really sure why but I'm not one to complain
Plus, it was easier than my FT01 to cable manage and it's quieter. Oh and I ordered a plain panel
from Corsair for the left side when looking head on. Wasn't a fan of the push-open panel for two extra fans, took away from the clean aesthetic. Love how you can get any replacement part from Corsair, spare filters, new alu face, whatever, they sell it Pics (they're in my siggy rigbuilder page but meh) (Click to show)
