I was reading review site that said the best option to setup a liquid cooling system (Corsair h100) would be to use a push-pull configuration.

What does this mean?

My guess was

air pulled from system from fan > radiator > another fan attached to the other side of the radiator pushes air out

Is this right?

You're correct. The corsair blog has a good post on this topic with the following image being a part of that post. The H100 will work in the same fashion. I use a H60 with push-pull to aid the radiator in dispersing the heat. Youtube also has a bunch of videos showing the H100 in push-pull configuration.
