Warm Air Coming From Top of PC

Hi, Recently i built my own gaming pc:
Cooler Master CM690ii Advanced
Intel i7 3820 + Corsair H80 (Push/Pull)
Reference EVGA GTX 680
Asus Rampage IV Formula
Cooler Master Silent Pro 700watt PSU

My question is: Is it normal for warm air to be seeping out of the top of my pc when i play demanding games (Battlefield 3)?

Bear in mind, I changed to the Corsair H80 only last week which cools my CPU fine, since having it, Ive been noticing the warm air.

I cannot pin point where its coming from, the gpu is reference so it blows air out the back, i have 1x intake front, 1x intake side, 1x exhaust on top.

Note: I do not overclock at all.

Any help is appreciated !! :) 

EDIT: Just if your wondering, ill post my temps
CPU
IDLE: 25-38 / LOAD (Intel Burn Test): 55-59

GPU
IDLE: 31-38 / LOAD: 77-81

Not for 5 years! Everything is the same, except the H80, is it possible it could be pulling in air?
