Why bother going through the hassle of selling the TRUE and getting an H50 before you at least see if you can get better temps with what you have?
The TRUE throws off a lot of heat which has to be exausted from the case.
I'm willing to bet that if you add some exaust fans and maybe another intake your temps should be fine.

i just did a test. I opened up side of my 800d letting lots of air in. At stock clocks my temps were in 50s at stress test on each core. CPU temp was 35. Weird thing is my CPU cooler felt cool. Does that mean it is not mounted properly? AlsoI did some research and apparently my fans have low static pressure which is not good for a heatsink

If the heatsink feels cool after use then there may very well be a mounting problem.
I can feel the heat from my TRUE through the side of the case.

It was when my temps were in the 40s at idle. I've remounted twice so I don't think its wrong. I think its just my fans low static pressure.

Did you check the base of the cooler with a razor blade to see if it needs a little work? I was reading some reviews on your case and one reviewer mentioned the design was bad for cpu cooling but never said anything about a fix. I'll see if I can find it again and post it. I never found the review I saw but here's a c/p from Hexus reviews that I found

"After an hour of stress-testing Corsair's Obsidian Series 800D gets surprisingly warm. Ambient chassis, CPU and GPU temperatures aren't the best we've ever seen, and we'd have expected better. Of course, the chassis does provide room for ample cooling expansion, but we'd have predicted better out-the-box performance".

well a little update, my system is running at 4ghz nice and stable:) bit warmer then wanted but all good. I have a 1.3 vcore and max temps at 75 under load. I will be replacing some fans though to lower the temps a bit:)

So did you end up keeping the TRUE?

yes I kept the TRUE. It runs around 10 degrees warmer then I want it right now but with new fans it should be ok

75c is too high?

Anything over 80C is when you want to potentially worry about but the threshold is 100C
