Windows 7: Best Replacement for H60

If you are running a default clock using Prime 95 at 80c I can see your concern. A Corsair H80i is considered a quality product. I don't like their fan because they are noisy to my ears. I'm a lover of Noctua fans. (see my specs).
Noctua.at - sound-optimised premium components "Designed in Austria"!

If you could remove your hard drive rack from in front of the front fan and still have a place to mount your hard drives it would help case air flow.
You have a very nice mid size case. I do believer H80i would be a improvement although not drastic. Of course your will never know unless you try it. I have no idea how good thermal compound on Corsair coolers are because I alway use Arctic Silver5.

Changing the system fluid well have very little effect on the temps. There are products that give you a small boost in heat transfer efficiency, but the radiator core size, and the air flow through the core is much more important. Make sure you do not have dust bunnies living in the radiator core, run a push/pull fan setup on the radiator. If you have space limitations you can have one fan inside the case and the second outside the case.
My radiator only has one fan, maybe I can try adding one as I think it has holes on both sides.

I meant in comparison to how easy it is to change paste, why don't they have something for fluid changes?

If I were you ,Take yourself to the shop get two SP corsair fans and do a push pull one fan and it being a crap fan out the box pretty much will do you in

soon as I bought my cooler I went and got the best replacement fans I could get and the SP fans from corsair are excellent

The NZXT Kraken 40 is a sweet option, I'm using the 60 and it's crazy good !

NZXT Kraken X40 RL-
KRX40-01 140mm Ultra Performance Liquid CPU Cooler - Newegg.com


This would be for the rear case fan installation and I would run it as an intake not exhaust !

Two of the proper fans with the proper radiator will never hurt.
With my system the temp difference between one or two fans is only 2 to 3 C.
Their is no one magic trick.
It's a combination of things.
From case design, cable management, fan position and air flow direction, cpu cooler and compound, ect.

When doing it this way, where do you exhaust, other than the psu? Or is the psu exhaust enough?

His case shows a 200mm top exhaust fan as well as a 200+mm side intake fan. Unless the Element G I looked up is different I would intake thru the rad and the 200 top will pull out it and the other heat with ease.

That is a rather interesting setup. I didn't think it would make that much of a difference which way the air is flowing. Maybe I can try that with my current setup.

+10 on the Corsair fans and noise. They are fine at low rpm but crank them up and it sound like a C130 doing a short field takeoff. He would need several HHD's in the front rack before it blocked air flow. I would remove all the trays that are not being used. The two drives in my 922 never go more than 2* above room temps.

With good or better than good front, top, bottom and side air options then the difference won't be that great but I say positive pressure in the case is always a good thing and with the 200mm running full tilt at the top then you should find this set up works well. Experimenting with both directions will yield all the numbers you need to find the best but in reality if the difference was more than 2-4 degrees difference I'd be surprised. Running a quality 140mm here like my Noctua will also help.
