H80i Placement (intake vs exhaust)

I hae my h80i on my rear fan slot, would it be better to have it as an exhaust or an intake? It is set up as a push pull.

I have a 200mm intake on the front of my case and a 200m exhaust on top.

Keep in mind that you want to keep airflow positive in your case, i.e. more air coming in than going out.

The most common, and best placement, would be as an exhaust!

Will this change my CPU temps though?

Gave my current airflow config for my case.

Maybe by a degree or 2, but if it were an intake, it would be putting hot air into the case, which will affect other components :/

If it won't change it much then I will switch it around, thanks!

According to corsair, you should have it as intake. They want this because it will give you the best temperatures. There isn't a huge difference between the two unless you have other components kicking a lot of heat into the case. (Usually GPU's)
