So when I play overwatch on Epic settings it pushes the system by a lot...
The CPU temps jump up from 28c average to all the way to 55c average.
My system currently is oc'ed to 4.5Ghz at 1.280v.

I currently have the radiator mounted on top and it currently is pulling hot air out of the system.
The drawback is that is throwing a lot of heat out and making the top of the case heated. There is a top cover on the top to reduce the system noise, If I remove it then the system runs a bit more cooler, it drops down to around 50-52c.

So do you guys think I'll be alright? Or should I consider switching to pulling air in?

Do some fan balancing you might be pulling to much air out that you dont have enough to pull in when things rev up. Use one of those sented sticks as they generate smoke

My CPU loaded at 85c and I still want to push it more.
If pull in, your CPU may be cooler but the hot air will warm up other components.

You're perfect my friend :)

Well I ordered two more fans, the quiet ones, Imma need to pull more air in.
Since technically its 2 fans (front fans) pulling in and the rear and radiator fans pushing air out. So adding 1 more fan b y removing the optical drive would be beneficial.

55c is still in the "icy cold" spot. Have you run a full stress test like Intelburntest and see what max temps are?

Max temps under heavy benchmarking max is 60-63c max.
Hot air comes out, but the inside of the system is good.
