Im looking at the corsair h1oo for my build . The case is a Lian Li pc-a70f . My question is where to locate the radiator . What I've read thus far is to mount on the top panel . Problem is I plan to install two 120 mm blowholes there for general ventilation . So that being said can I mount it on the side panel ? and will I run into problems with the length of the stock hose ? all thots appreciated

Hi :) 

Any radiator needs to RADIATE heat AWAY from the case... top/back/side makes little difference ...

All the best Brett :)

If I mount it on the top panel with a push-pull set up 120mmx4 do you there will be enough air flow for it to be working even marginally in terms of case ventilation ??

Awsome . I really want the h100 for conserving space in my case as well as the cooling bonus but the only place ( thus far ) I see to mount it is where I wanted to install the 120 mm blowholes so if the rad will acheive both functions then its a win win

You can always consider the H80!

Argh! no . my hearing's going already . The info on the h100 says its compatible with cases set for 120 mm radiators . Does that mean I can use a standard 120mm rad template to do the case mod with out fear of mistakes ?? ie. the mounting screw holes line up etc. ?

No h100 is a 240mm rad, not 120mm :S
