What 20 dollar air cooler beats a h100?

You are lying...

You'll be fine using some spare tubing through the hole to fill the reservoir. I did it in my HAF 932.

My RX360 fit into the top of my old HAF 932 easily. Any 360 radiator will fit up there, any bigger and it won't fit without modding.

Furthermore, I used the XSPC Double Bay reservoir in my old 932 too (I had exactly the same water cooling setup as I do in my sig rig) and everything fit perfectly. Just leave a drive-bay space between the top hole and the reservoir so you can fit some tubing into it with a funnel attached to the top of it in order to fill the reservoir.
Good point! +Rep

I don't understand how the reservoir is going to be one bay away from the top of the drive bay without modifying my 932. Does that clamp on the case really hold up the reservoir filled up with distilled water? Also I don't understand how there would be room for it up there, won't there be a 360 radiator at the top(inside) of my case?

Just asking questions to get ready! One more month till I wait for savings

I could have bought a 240 or 360 kit for almost the same price and had better cooling. I didnt want to have to maintain my loop or worry about leaks so I got the H100 + AP-15s.

Get the rasa 240/360 kit if you want the best cooling. Get the h100 if you want something safe, quiet and respectfully cool.
Safety good point, +rep (was brought up earlier, but I keep forgetting about it)

I still don't know AP-15s, I'm sure they are fans but I'll search em up.

Bay devices sit on metal supports. A bay reservoir isn't THAT heavy.

A 360 rad will cause you to lose the ability to mount a device in the top 5.25" bay. The reservoir will sit in the second one down. You will therefore need to run some tubing from the fillport in the top of the case to the fillport in the top other reservoir. You can see some examples of that in the build log in my sig, though my res is mounted much lower in my case because its a tube res.

^ This and that graph doesn't even show the H100s true potential as it's temps get better and better vs the competitors as it is forced to deal with more heat.

@OP The H100 is a great cooler for 0 maintenance and will outperform most if not all air coolers on the market right now, it's not as good as water but with a lot of chips right now you're going to be limited by instability before temps with the H100. H100 is expensive and I'm not going to claim it's for everyone and every occasion but it is very easy and you won't be disappointed.
