Can report that the standard black CM HAF 922 and the Bitfenix Shinobi XL can support the original H100 with no need for modding or the like.
The H100 can be placed up top in both cases. In the HAF it could also be placed on the side.
In both cases, the H100 could theoretically be in the front of the case, but there would be no space for the fans, nor would the H100 tubes be long enough. - unless one would like to mod both the H100 and their cases.
The Bitfenix have got the space for both the radiator plus push and pull fans inside the case without touching the RAM on my Gigabyte 990FX-UD7, which is basically a little bigger than a standard ATX motherboard. (But the 990FX-UD7 is still carries the ATX specifications.)
The HAF 922 does not have the space for the H100 and the push and pull fans inside the case up top - it would hit the RAM and the H100's cooler, when locked onto the socket.
However, there is space inside the HAF - if one only chooses to have the push or pull fans.
An alternative with the HAF 922 is choosing to have the radiator and one pair of fans inside the case and the other pair of fans on the exterior of the HAF 922. (I'm still talking about the top of the case.) The long screws (you get eight of them), which come with the H100, can be utilized to keep the radiator hanging inside the case (you would then use 4 screws outside the case and 4 screws inside the case).
