Default Seal cooler's in CM HAF X 942

Hi all,

I'm building my first PC. Done alot of research. Have a question reguarding the corsair H100 in the CM HAF X 942 if anyone can help. I know it has two 200mm fans in the top but does anyone know if it will take the H100. The fans look to be slightly seperated and not have mounts for smaller fans, let alone two 120mm, side by side. Is this the case? (excuse the pun)

Initially I wanted a Corsair 800D and I know it has mounts but fell in love with the HAF. Should I stick with 800D or does HAF accommodate? Or should I perhaps just get the HAF and go for a H80?

Any feedback/personal opinions appreciated

Thanks.

I would go with the Corsair C70 and H100.

Yeah I like it but they lost me with the very limited 5.25" drive bays. I have a card reader, 2 BD/DVD drives and my sound. So wont work. Didn't know about that case though. Thanx for the intro I currently run a CM Storm Scout. I like the more portable cases but i want to go big this time out.

I'm a big fan of Corsair so in that case I would recommend the 800D. That thing is a beast. I have never owned any Cooler Master case so I really cannot comment.

What about the corsair 650D. It's basically a smaller version of the 800D and I'm sure it would accommodate all of your drives and the H100.
