No it will not fit. You need to remove the 200mm fan and then install the H100. I am sorry it took so long to get you an answer.

I serious just wish this case didn't have the 200mm fan holes in it to avoid hot air bouncing back into it since the rads aren't wide enough to cover the leftover space. And the top should have definitely been given ventilation on both side instead of left and back. Other than that, it's an awesome case.

Hot air bouncing back in... um.. what? You should have positive pressure anyway to stop dust being sucked in through any part of the case anyway but besides the air-flow would prevent anything like this.

I got to see the case in person. The top doesn't have enough ventilation imo and the huge cutouts to mount 200 mm fans will cause some of the hot air to be trapped in the upper chamber. Take a look at the photos they have on their website and you'll see what I am talking about.

Ah, I see. The H630 is good but I think it's safe to say that modding the top panel will be a good thing once you buy it if you really want excellent cooling. I don't get why they had to overdo the top panel and make the case water cooling ready. That and the 200 mm fan mounts are extremely unnecessary. I hope they make a revision because if I buy it then I'd have to mod it and I really would want to do that. So it's a pass for me.

Why do you feel that the 200mm fan mounts are unnecessary?

I think the 200mm mounts (now that they are actually 200mm , and not 192 to mess us up before) are perfect.
The bigger the fan, the slower it turns to move the same air as smaller ones. Makes for solid cooling at lower noise levels. For what the case is, I am satisfied with it. Not my forte personally, I'm long awaiting them to re-make my Apollo.

I guesss it's a personal taste for me. I'd rather have 140mm fan holes as the max. I wouldn't mind mounting the 2x200 mm fans in the front for intakes though.
