IT DOES NOT FIT....
The first 4 screw holes line up, but the second 4 are way off.
Did anyone experience this?
YES ... and I notified Matty of this with my link HERE
post#19907 ... Why Matty didn't include it I don't know, and then mislinks a CM690 under the HAF922 heading
@Matty ... You know I commend your thread and work done ... see HERE
But I have another suggestion
For example the H100/HAF922 should read ...
Fits top in Push or Pull (with slight mod's), P/P only w/2of4 fans outside the case - links - LINK
Correct the 2nd "LINK" to my link above
From my link above ... Quote November 2011 ...My biggest concern was if the H100 would fit in my case without considerable modding. I searched high and low for information on the above combination. No joy anywhere The ASRock E4/G3 has fairly tall heatsinks! With the H100 in hand, I intially didn't think it would clear the uppermost heatsink and still be able to use the 120mm fan hole alignment on top? :O It did clear by 3/16ths of an inch (see pic). I did have to extend (dremmel) 2 of the mounting holes about a 1/4" to have 6 total mounting screws (not 8) and its plenty secure!

Or pull air from the case to outside? In my head it makes more sense to pull from the case to outside to keep the case ambient temp down.
And about 70% vs 30% of H100(i) owners feel the same as you
The H100(i) is essentially the same concept as the H110, But it can depend on your case circulation to begin with, your Overclocks (heat generated) /and your ambients. In the above examle, I have an additional Silverstone FM121 high CFM running @1500rpm as an additional front intake providing more fresh/cool air to the H100. With my setup (Top/Exhaust/Push) all my case components ran cooler with my Mobo as much as 3c-5c cooler while only loosing 1c-2c on my CPU cooling, and dust management of the radiator is signifigantly reduced ... have a read through the Corsair Hydro forum HERE
searching H100 or just take my word for it ... hope that helps
