Default H100 and Thermaltake Armour + Full tower

Hey guys, im looking to buy a Corsair H100 but im not sure if it would fit in my tower case. Theres only 1 fan mount on the back, and the PSU occupies the top part of the case covering 1 fan slot out of the 2. the only spot i can think of putting it is at the bottom where there are 2 fan slots. If i used the Push/Pull method than i wont have to worry about dust getting into it as the air would be blowing out of the bottom. Any suggestions??

P.S, suggesting to put an H80 at the top wouldn't work either cause my PSU partly covers the 2nd fan slot as well -_-

I don't think there's enough room to do it internally. I would suggest buying a high end cooler, say the noctua nhc14. Many high end air coolers can keep up with the h100.

theres one reason why i want watercooling, its because my EVGA X58 SLI motherboard has this stupid heatsink really close to the CPU and disables me from using bigger CPU air coolers. I currently have a noctua cooler but i can only use 1 fan in pull method and its not enough to keep the CPU cool enough.

Perhaps you should look into a custom kit from dazmode.com and get a radbox for external rad mounting. I think your case has watercooling grommets.

Im not very familiar with an entire custom water cooling set but it seems worth getting into. Any thoughts about the bigwater 760 plus?

Bigwater series is crap. I started out with both bigwater series and they sucked.

Your going to want a XSPC Raystorm kit, or the newer EK kits. I would grab this kit

Dazmode is a retailer (e-tailor) while kooldance is a WC kit manufacturer. Daz sells some kooldance kit as well as others.

I see, anyway looking at Dazmode products, it seems that after choosing all "4 steps" it totals up to more or about 300 dollars, which is out of my price range. Can anyone direct me towards something in the hundreds range? or that already considered "bad" in terms of quality
