You will usually need to remove the fans from the radiator. You then install the fans above the grill and the radiator under the grill.

That cooler needs two 120mm mounting spots on the top of the case but from what I could see on newegg that case does not have any. Or at least none were listed. With out two 120mm mounting spots you can't mount it.

The pcpartpicker site is not perfect, nor is it really feasible for them to be perfect. You should have checked the case for watercooling compatibility before buying it. After all, if I was going to spend $140 on a case I'd make sure it had everything I needed.

The above seems to indicate that you can place two 120mm fans on the top without a radiator. You can place your watercooler radiator and fans there, just be aware that it may be blocked by your RAM. The first time I did watercooling, I had to use zip ties to keep the radiator on the top since it did not fit. While it's not something I'd completely recommend, it is something you can try if you are desperate to get it working.

I am not desperate to get ot to work. I want to do it right.
If it is compatble, I d want to keep it. If it is not, I dont want to do a junky monkey job and try to fit it to my case.
Can someone tell me if this is compatible or not?
Corsair's website says this case supports two 120mm fans.. but it doesnt mention H105..
