Ok so I'm interested in getting a Corsair Carbide 300R to mount a ASUS SABERTOOTH X79 with a core i7 3930K. I'd like to use a Corsair Hydro Series H100 for cooling. I see in the notes that mounting a H100 is possible but it is hardware dependant. Has anyone seen this setup?
I really want to keep my case fairly simple and small so if this setup doesn't work would a Corsair Hydro Series H70 Core work with OCing on my core i7 3930K? I also see the H70 doesn't come with a 120mm fan. Can one be added and if so would this work within a Carbide 300R?
Sorry a bit new to this but if anyone has any tips on this matter it would be greatly appreciated!
The HW limitation is down to the size of the heatsinks on your RAM. If the RAM is too tall then it will be in the way. Exactly how much room you have I couldn't say but looks like the person linked on page 1 is using Corsair Vengeance.

Looks like you can easily get another couple of fans on the top (outside) for a push pull setup. Don't think you'll get them all inside the case though. A lot of people put fans on the outside, just get 120mm fan guards for them http://www.scan.co.uk/products/120mm-akasa-mg-12-chrome-fan-guard
