NZXT Phantom+ Corshair H100 question

So, i am building a new computer. While doing my homework on researching different hardware and components, I came across a problem:

I want to build my computer in the White NZXT Phantom Full tower case, and as a CPU cooler I am going to buy a Corsair Hydro H100. I learned that on the top of the NZXT Phantom, there are two 140mm fans, with one being an exhaust and the other being an optional slot for intake. I want to take off the 140mm fan to install my H100 with push and pull (Push is the standard fans and the pull being a Delta 5400RPM fan that is 32mm wide, and not the standard 20mm/25mm).
My question is, will I be able to install the Corsair H100 in this case WITHOUT the 140mm fans on the top, making the H100 a sort of replacement to the 140mm fans.

the 2 top fans are actually 2-200mm fans,but the case does include dual rad mounting.click the link and check out the gallery pic.s,one shows a dual rad installed.you can either leave the 2-200mm fans in or remove them,I would recomend leaving them in,(only comes with 1 top 200mm fan,but I would install another).hope this helps.

Is there no way I can mount the h100 on the case? The side panel has 2x120mm fans, and I saw some pictures of someone mounting the h100 on the top panel where the two 200mm fans are.

sorry for double post, but:
• High Performance Cooling Advantages – Phantom’s extensive cooling capabilities include 7 fan cooling options with dual 200mm, single side 230/200mm (NZXT only guarantees fitment with NZXT's FN-200), triple 120mm, and front 140mm fans. For enhanced control and expandability, NZXT includes dual radiator support, quad watercooling cutouts, and an integrated fan controller with up to five 20W channels.

It says that the case supports dual radiator support. But where would the radiator go?

I know that that works (The mount on the 200mm fans), but I want to use my own top panel fans. That's my main question. Sorry for any misunderstandment. And i'm talking about these fans to install on the top panel for pulling air into the radiator (Delta 4000RPM Fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

Best solution

the answer is yes,I looked it all up by using google,you just remove the 1 factory installed 200,and there are mounting holes on the top for a dual rad mounting with 120,fans,I'm pretty sure the push/pull will work just fine.depending i believe on how high the heat spreaders are on your memory.

I know you want to use your own top fans,but as far as cooling and noise,i think you may be better off leaving the 200's in,

here's another link for ya:

Alright thanks. I just find it a little confusing because NZXT doesn't write anything about mounting holes on the top panel of the case, but only states that there are mounting brackets for the 200mm fans

ok,now I know,you are buying the phantom 410 mid tower,not the phantom full tower.The 410 does use 140/120 top fans,which should work better with the h100

http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/nzxt_phantom_410_r...

from what I see from this review,i would try mounting the rad on top,as long as the hoses will clear,otherwise you may have to just position the h100 and see what works best.
