I don't think it will hit the throttle point, but the first gen ones already run warm. My 950 would go between 37C in Winter and 47C in Summer at idle with a very short path back to a bunch of fans on my Air 540. It is extremely temperature sensitive and I was able to knock 5C off by going to 3x120 instead of 2x140. It does respond to direct cooling and in this case, both reduced air speed (radiator restriction) and a warmer air temperature coming at it will likely show an increase. Regardless, this seems like a good trade for you.
