    Check your case top to see if it has fan mounts for 2 standards 120mm fans with standing spacing (15mm spacing between the 2 holes of the fan). if it does, check the distance between the top of the case to the top of the motherboard. If it has at least 50 mm spacing, it will fit a h100.

    However, if you buy a full custome water cool kit like RASA ES240, it would be much better (lower temp and can be expanded later on if needed)

    as far as i'm concerned my motivation for choosing a closed loop are as follows
    1) i've would like some other options besides Air Cooling , and is much lighter compared to high profile air coolers
    2) i've heard that its easy to install
    3) i've not yet gained enough knowledge about "Real water cooling"
    4) budget cuts

    @jacknhut
    as far as the case specs goes it says in the box that it supports 1 x 140/120mm fan and just by looking at it i believe that from there is more than enough space from the mobo to the top of the case
  4. It depends if you are meaning a Corsair or Antec closed loop cooler or an actual watercooling loop when you are asking your questions. There is a very large difference between them when it comes to performance and customization.

    i'm very sorry if i didn't clarified it enough. i'm leaning on the corsair closed loops but i could learn a thing or two. :)

    For under $130, I don't recommend anything that is liquid or water cooling.

    I would say you could go with a closed loop cooler only if space requirements mandate you do so, otherwise, I'd recommend a good air cooler.
