Use an aircooler like a cooler master hyper 212 EVO, the H80 isn't worth it.

1| just googled that code you posted as a heading. We don't know the rest of your system specs. i.e: how many GPU's you have that might block your bottom fan mount
2| the tubing may be long but with so many QC issues faced by CLC's by Corsair(and others) I wouldn't go that route.
3| even if you mod it out and get longer tubes, you'll be blowing warm air into the case isntead of exhausting it to the environment. Not a good idea when the first reason you considered getting a CLC dumps heat away from the source, sometimes far away from it.
4| head down to the watercooling sticky and pop down to the CLC(closed loop cooler) section. It states the perks of getting an all-in-one cooler.

my 2 cents

I could also set that fan to exhaust there's 3 fans in the front of the case. I'll only have a 5770 card in there... I haven't purchased anything yet for my rebuild so I'm open to suggestions, just trying to iron out some details on what I'll be getting, board will be asrock 990fx extreme 3/4

still pointless, since AMD, you're better off getting the megahelm black edition to cool the CPU.

I have used the H80 and H100 both in the last few months and had to upgrade the fans since the stock ones are LOUD only to have each pump/block start grinding 2x H80 1 x H100 they have QC problems and I love Corsair if fact my Case PS and RAM are all theirs.
I just went custom and it is COOL now. Go air or custom.

Changed my mind guys, now going with red phantom 410, red phanteks(looks like d14 and I can't remember model), 3570k(price too close to fx8350), asrock fatal1ty z77, ballistic tracers, and HD 7850... anything u guys think I should do different?? psu is corsair TX 750 and 200-256 sad, 2x 1tb storage(if they are still on sale when I buy)
