Has anyone tried this and/or think it will effect the temps. I will still have the 120mm fan on the inside but on the case side there will be an 80mm fan adapter because my case only has an 80mm spot. What ya think?

No. Cut out a spot the size of the radiator. Don't choke it through a 80mm hole.

Oh well, I guess I;m stuck with an 80mm like the swiftek. The only way to cut a hole would be in the window and I'm not going to do that right now. The 80 mm fan fits in there tight as it is on the back hole. I would really like to find a duel 80mm fan radiator as there is two 80mm fan holes there. Any one know of one?

I know of several, but first show us your case. There's probably still room for a big heatercore.

If you really want to, you can fit a heatercore anywhere.
