Just get some decent fans and you'll be fine doing either push or pull
(Assuming you actually have H100 and not the H100i)

Pull setup wont build up dust as fast on the radiator. As seen here.

Grab some high static pressure/low noise fans from noctua or the like. (You wont see them anyway so dont be put off by the colour)
Get some nice intake fans as well. More airflow, less heat pools inside.

i have 2 120mm fans at the front of my case so i have plenty of air flow, i just cannot fit any fan in front of the rad to pull air through. i have a dedicated spot on top of my case for two static pressure 120s tho

thanks

It probably won't make that much of a difference if you go push or pull. So don't worry about it

The H100 is quite thin so some some decent static pressure fans pulling would be fine.

Axial fans are better at pulling than pushing so they'll work better pulling air thru the rad. I tried mine in push and pull and picked up 1-3C with the fans pulling air thru. It doesn't make a huge difference and wont make or break your cooling but pull is better with axial fans.

As for replacement fans, the stockers offer the best blend of performance and noise. Anand did a comparison of a bunch of different fans and the ones that were better were louder and the ones that were quieter didn't cool as good so the stock fans are the best blend.

No problem. That's what these forums are all about. I've been tinkering with and overclocking AMD CPU's for a while now so I can hopefully steer ya in the right direction.
