That how its sort of now
Im thinking of a box type setup that sits over the fan and rads;
Below is my very quick concept art sketch
What you could actually do, that wouold be easy and look pretty good.. is pop to your local auto store and buy some car radiator grille mesh, can easily bend and shape that into a box and it's pretty cheap too.
Here's my update of how I installed the RAD in the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced RED circles = Stock Corsair H100 screws (2 per shroud) BLUE circles = 6-32 1 1/2" machine screws with washer and nut's (2 per fan) YELLOW circles = Regular fan screws (2 per fan)
As you can see there is a little gap between the fans and shrouds and the shrouds just sit right on the BLUE screws that are helping hold the fans on the bottom of the case.
Looks good, link added to OP. Did you compare temps with push pull? Also, how are you controlling the fans?

I took down my H100 Push/pull (intake) for a clean the other day and the rad was caked in dust. Ive only had it for 6 months.
Conventional fan filters can be hard to obtain or fit, so I grabbed a pair of my wifes old black stocking socks and placed those over the intake fans... works a treat. And the temps went down with out all that dust on the rad.
Even now, after a few days, there is a fine covering of dust on the 'filters'.

I'd really recommend this tip for all H series owners using an intake configuration
If anyone is interested, I can take a pic of the 'filters' in action when I get home tonight.
I'd really appreciate some more pics of the kinky filters, both for myself and the thread!
silverstone raven 02
i just leveled it on top of the 2 180mm fans
push pull setup or more like a push push pull setup
in idle mode 2x120mm fans push no power only pull fans and the 180mm of raven running at 800rpm
see my rig:D
Thanks for the info, had a look at your rig, couldn't really see a pic that showed the setup that clearly, asny chance you can take one?
I was certain the H80 would not fit in the Thermaltake Armor+ (VH6001) but I can confirm it does indeed fit; just with one fan pushing or pulling. It's tight but the rad fits fairly comfortably.
without modifications, the case can only do one fan on any of the H series coolers, to do a push/pull, the psu support beam will need to be shaved to make room for the rad
Update: Mounting fan externally on the back of the case just requires placing a couple washers(depending on the thickness, I needed three of the washers that came with the H80 which is a little thicker than your standard key) between the fan and the case to keep the fan blades from touching when used in the a pull configuration.
