From what I have heard the initial answer is NO! However, it may fit with some slight modding by mounting the fans on the outside. I have no images of this and am not 100%, so if you find an answer, please let me know so I can update the thread.

There's no such thing as a stupid question..... Only stupid answers!

They should be similar, everytime you boot with with the H80/100 installed it spins up the fans to test RPMs and then settles back down to the required setting. At the very least, the two push should be the same, and the two pull the same.
I'd reccomend the Scyth GT-1850 as a good match if you can't find the Corsair stock ones, which, I actually think are quite good. If you plan on the fans running maxed out a lot then I'd replace them all with the GTs simply to lower the noise, but it won't give better pressure.

Thanks for the advise. I planned on buying 4 fans since i have a very low noise setup, ill look into the 1850's. I did some measurements and i think it will fit fine, but i may mod it a little and push the radiator all the way out (as far away from the motherboard as i can) that way i have some extra clearance. I love my case but it seems they put the motherboard higher up than they needed to so im worried about hitting the ram if i don't push the radiator over some.

Will fit in bottom of 690 II Advanced with 25 mm pull fans, 38 mm push fans, and 25 mm shrouds. Will nee to remove lower HDD cage and move front 140 mm fan to the top mounting position. See pic:

450

Note: will support long video cards in top 6 slots, bottom expansion slot will interfere with pull fans.



Spoiler!

Nice. Do you use the shrouds to increase pressure? If so how effective are they?

The shrouds help in preventing dead spots on the RAD surface.

This translates to better heat removal at the same fan speeds, or the same heat removal, with slightly lower fan speeds. It's not as noticeable on the H100, about 1-3 degrees, but on higher end rads, it could easily make a little more of a difference.

I just prefer how much lower I can run my fans and still get the same cooling performance.

I tend to agree with this. Ive always found the use of shrouds to be helpful in lowering the temps in my old H50 and H100 by about 1-5c, depending on the fan speed. Im using AP-15s in push/pull (intake).

I have 3000 RPM Ultra Kaze's as Push, and AP-15's as Pull.

Ultra Kaze's at Lowest setting on NZXT Mesh Fan Controller @ ~ 6.5 V
AP-15's Direct Molex @ 12 V

This combination yields 2-3 C better temps then the original Corsair fans at full speed as push with some Slipstreams as Pull. But the new setup is quieter then the stock Athlon II X3 cooler in my server sitting 3 shelfs below my main rig.

Nzxt Gamma
Top of case
H100

Requires mods.
Will fit inside of case if against the window side, mounted through the mesh using different holes than intended by mfgr, in push only, but low profile ram must be used, and 8pin motherboard power will be blocked (on z68 extreme 3 gen3)
will fit outside of case on top if a hole for the pump is cut.
