I have ordered from RapidLED.com as well. I got components rather than a kit because I wanted to have my system custom to my needs.

I don't know what I would do for a 100g tank. I would probably push it up to 120-140 LEDs at 3w. I have a 40g breeder with 42 LEDs over it. 3w crees so 126w total. My growth is insane but the height of my tank is much less than 24".

I would be very interested in seeing what you come up with and decide to go with.
