See this pic of the H50 in that case:

See how close the fan is too the pump!
Now consider this:

H50 Rad size: 150 x 120 x 25 mm
H80 Rad Size: 120mm x 152mm x 38mm

That extra 13mm thickness could be an issue!

Do not despair, it may also be possible to mount one fan externally (fan guard reccomended) like this:

No guarantees though!

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.

DOn't know about in Aus but this is only 20GBP for tons of the stuff!

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?

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'.
Pic of my setup prior to popping the stockings over the fans.
I'd really recommend this tip for all H series owners using an intake configuration thumb.gif
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!

Here ya go... in all its glory smile.gif

Only problem could be with noise maybe, would depend on the mesh.

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.
