This is a question that was raised in another thread (towards the bottom, the thread topic changed throughout), but I thought i'll put it into its own, more appropraite thread.
I am planning to build my own computer, and it was raised in the other thread that the storm scout 2 was incompatible with water cooling. So the main question here is what the title says, is the Storm Scout compatible with the corsair H100i water cooler.

If it isn't compatible, will it work with the corsair carbide 300r or 400r (runner up cases in build)

It should fit on the two 120mm mounts on the top. I doubt that you can double up the fans to create pull-push effect.

What is this push/pull effect you speak of?

When you are using a radiator, you can have fans on both sides, to either push-pull or pull-push, depending on your perspective. It gives you more airflow and, correspondingly, better cooling. I have this effect going on my H100i, though the pull fans are actually a pair of large case fans. Corsair's SP120 would work better, and I use them on the push side of the radiator but there wasn't room on the opposite side.
