Hey guys. I was wondering if anyone could explain to me what is meant by 'Push pull' in terms of cooling and how a closed loop cooling system actually works, Eg. The corsair H100 or H100i. Thanks.

Push Pull, two fans sandwiching a radiator/heatsink, one is pushing the air into the radiator/heatsink and the other one pulling it out of the radiator/heatsink.

Closed loop cooling system, means you never need to open it or manually set the tubes/waterblocks/etc, the device will be "plug and play" and to be taken as a whole, It just works like any other Air Coolers. except that its using water and it has the extra tubes and radiator
