Will GTX 980 TI and 240mm liquid coolers fit in this case?

I currently have a Spec-01 Corsair case and I'm planning on getting a Xtreme Gaming GTX 980 TI to install in my case. I'm also thinking about getting a h80i gt, but I was wondering if I can switch it out for something like a h100i instead. The overall question is will there be any conflicts, space and room wise, in this case?

You wont be able to fit a 240mm rad inside this case as the largest would be a 120mm. And honestly it would be a better choice to get an air cooler as rads start to make sense at 240mm. The H7 which is under 150mm is a good choice.

I had that case and it should take 240mm in the front minus the HDD Cage not the top since there isnt enough clearance

In theory this case is not meant to house a 240mm radiator as corsair only shows 120mm radiators being compatible on their webpage (reason why i concluded it would'nt fit)

But this page shows what you posted

I guess getting some adapters to install the drives on the 5.25 cages is another possibility.
