That would be the best for me, unless push/pull actually makes no difference. My Archon only dropped by 1C after I added the second fan, so I'm a bit sceptical about push/pull configurations now - still would be sweet though.
Push/pull makes a difference, but you'll typically only notice it at very high heat loads on an efficient cooler. For example, at stock speeds, a Core i7 920 only shows about a 2C performance gain with push-pull on an H60. When overclocked to 3.8 GHz, that number goes to about 5C. So the performance jumps significantly.
The H100 is about 25mm thick, and standard 120mm fans are also 25mm thick. So if you measure 75mm from the top of the case you have, you'll see how far down the H100 with push-pull fans will encroach into your chassis.
This setup fits fine in the 800D, but won't work in shorter cases like the 600T or 400R/500R.
