It dosn't look like that case has much room, looks like you can fit 2 120mm rads or a 240 on the bottom if you modded it a bit.

That kit looks generic, take a look at this one for close to the same price.

Do you have the A60 or A30 ?

if you have the A60 you can make a custom loop with a 240 rad in the top and a 120 rad on the back. if space is little you can go for a slim rads [34mm thick instead of 45mm]

this is the top of the A60
