Ya man. I think the H100 is about 28mm thick. I just picked up some Scythe Slipstream Slim fans from Canada Computers to test fit to the bottom of the rad. Hopefully it will fit without modifications. They were on sale and were only 3 left. I couldn't ask for better luck.

Also picked up the Corsair Vengeance 8GB I reserved. to test fit to the bottom of the rad. Hopefully it will fit without modifications.

Now to find some good fans for the pull side.

I am probably going to pick up 3 GT's to put on top of the rad (pull). I just hate to purchase a mobo without knowing if it will clear the rad with fans or not. Grrr....

I still need to buy 1 Gentle Typhoon fan. Anyone got one?

If someone had to choose between an Asus P8Z68-V vs MSI Z77A-GD65, which one would it be? Assuming price is the same.
