You can go with air cooling which give the same or better performance than these coolers.
For your budget you have options from Swiftech, EK and Fractal.

Example my Cryorig C1 performed equal or better than H100i I used for half the cost.
I would go with air cooling but the Corsair 240 case only has maximum CPU height of 120mm height, the coolers I mentioned above, I can get them about half of their retail price as I have discount from a family friend.

While H100 is part of the AIO family it is a sub section of CLC. All CLCs are AIOs, but not all AIOs are CLC.
AIO includes all pre-built and pre-assembled liquid cooling systems.

CLCs are factory sealed with no way to do anything to them. Add to this they have cheap pumps that can just barely move enough coolant through the CPU waterblock to keep CPU cool and on to cheap aluminum radiators requiring very high fin density and very high airflow to cool the coolant. This high fin density radiator requires high speed high, high airflow, high pressure fans that create high noise levels. They have no provision for maintenance; not way to replace broken parts, not even a way to top up coolant. But the do cost much more than air coolers and make much more noise doing the same job or maybe a little better, while even the best of them are only a good as top air at same noise levels..

AIOs like Swiftech have pumps that move several times as much coolant (so have additional components can be added if you want), have quality copper radiators with that don't need dense fins or high airflow to cool, have fittings and hoses that can be added to and/or replaced. The system has a fill plug so coolant can be added or changed. the components can be replaced if need be. Swiftech is more expensive than CLCs are,but it coos better than air and runs quieter too.

Corsair H100i GTX

Corsair H105
Cooler Master Nepton 240M
Antec H1200 Kuhler

Also the Corsair SP fans are good on radiators and AF good for case fans?
As already stated, none of them are good.

Maybe you should consider a better case. Corsail are really not a good value. Their quality to cost is not even close to others like Phanteks and Fractal Design.

It's a bit like asking which way you should dive into a wood chipper. There is no "best", only a hopefully least painful. The Nepton 240 is far and away the least painful of those choices.

Corsair fans? No thanks. Not when I can still hear and want better than mediocre performance.

Which 120mm fans would you recommend?

By the time you buy new fans the cost will be where the performance will very small over stock.

Can your friend get you a discount on other coolers?

BeQuiet, Cryorig, and Noctua all produce top-down heatsinks that are less than 120mm in height that do all the things mentioned already.

Edit: also, no discount on EK or Swiftech? I mean, the Nepton if that's what you want, but the consensus here is that it's not just overpriced, but it's actually a lousy component.

It depends on what you are doing with them and what your final components end up being.

For example, if up with the Newton, changing the fans I'd foolish. The included fans are excellent. And changing the fans on CLC is foolish in general. They already have atrocious price to performance. Driving up the price adding fans that do little to nothing just makes them even worse in those terms.

Yes, I can get discount on other air coolers as well but a 120mm tall heatsink can help me achieve around 4.7GHz overclock with reasonable temps?

I can change the case to the Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 which has a maximum CPU cooler height of 160mm but the case only has 3 fans mounting points.

Phanteks Evolv a possibility?
