NZXT Phantom and Corsair H100 Setup

Hey guys so I have a couple question regarding my setup. I have an NZXT full tower Phantom, with one rear 120mm far, 2 120mm and a 200mm on the side, and a 200mm on the top. I want to add my h100, but I had a few problems.

If I keep the 200mm in place and use the bracket, the h100 completely covers up all 8 DIMMS, but if I bend the brackets like some people did, it would block my side intake fan. My RAM has a large heatsink so there is no clearance at all.

I was wondering if it would be preferable to remove the top 200mm and set up a push pull with the top 2 inside the cover? Would losing that 200mm exhaust fan cause my temps to go up because I know it pushes a lot of air.

Or could I add another 200mm to the top, and mount the radiator underneath it without the corsair fans? Would that even work?


Sorry for so many questions!

That is what I would attempt to do. Four 120's will move more air (even through a radiator) than a single 200mm so you shouldn't need to worry about temps going up from that installation

The less air flow you block the better.
