Ok, this is my dilemma, I have an FX-6300 on an ASRock 970 Pro 3 Rev 2.0 mobo inside a Antec One Case.... I want to know will a CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 fit inside the case and should i mount it in the top fan slot or the back fan slot?

Yeah, it'll fit. It fits anywhere a normal 120mm fan will. It would be best blowing air out of the top, as hot air naturally moves upwards.

Ok, the H60 comes with a single fan should i have that in a push or a pull configuration, and if it is blowing warm air out of the case, won't that defeat the purpose of using water/liquid cooling

You either want it blowing hot air out the best place or pulling in cool air from the coolest place, so I'm not sure if you have a fan slot on the bottom of your case, but pulling air in from there would work too. Basically you just want to get rid of heat, either by dispersing it faster, or bringing in cool air.

Ok, my PSU is blocking the bottom fan slot, and short of custom building a water cooling rig, I wont be able to mount it in the front fan slot, so looks like the top slot in a pull configuration is going to do.

It should work pretty well.
