By mounting the radiator in the bottom of my case, will it alter the performance of my h80i?

I could not find space in the top or rear (mobo power cable/RAM slots). Mounting in the bottom was definitely a last resort. I read something about the radiator being best mounted above the block, but I had no choice. I have currently OC'd from 3.2 to 3.8 and don't have an issues, so I was just curious!

    it can cause the pump to work harder, shortening its lifespan, and it does reduce some airflow which could affect the cooling.... it is ideal to have the radiator and pump at the same level or the radiator slightly above the water block.
