Cool Does Corsair H100 fit in Lanboy Air ?

Hello :)
I am "into" futuristic looking stuff, so I am interested in Antec Lanboy Air case.
But since it's "small" case, I don't know if it could fit Corsair H100 Radiator + fans INSIDE and ON TOP of the case. Anyone of you possesing these two ? I heard it's snug fit, but want to confirm that.
I will be building my new PC around June, but just looking at some stuff already

P.S.
What do you think of this gaming configuration (Extreme graphic gaming- Battlefield 3, MW3, GTA IV & upcoming GTA V, also Crysis 2)

Intel i7 2700k (OC to 4.5~5 GHz)
Corsair H100 Cooler
EVGA GTX 580 (In future in SLI)
ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe / GEN3
G.Skill PC3-17000 "Sniper" KIT 8GB
Seasonic Hybrid Silent 1050W (Overkill ? )

ASUS DRW-24B3LT LightScribe™
Antec LanBoy Air Blue

This build will meant to be used for 4 years of gaming w/ maybe only SLI of 480s

P.S.S. When Ivy Bridge comes out, if it won't be sky-high price in my country (20-30% more as it should). I will probably go for 3770k

Thanks

Im not sure if the h100 rad will fit with fans inside the top of the case. It does look a bit tight up there. But in this build video the guy installed the rad on the front of the case.

Mnpctech did a pretty thorough overview of the Lanboy and found a crap ton of clearance issues just by installing fans. I highly doubt you'll have an easy time with an H100.

Well, thanks for video.
If I won't be able to fit it on top, I'll be lazy and fit it in front. Or I'll just go with something like Obsidian 800D ?

Honestly an H80 is like 2 degrees warmer, half the size and less money, I really have no idea why anyone would buy an H100. If you really want a double rad just buy a base level custom WC loop, it's not even all that much more expensive, the h100 is just and e-peen extension IMHO.
