You wont have any problems fitting a 360 rad in the ST. Here's one fitted with a 240 Coolgate (LxWxH) 292mmx124mmx60mm (least that what is says on the box), and some Aerocool shark white 120mmx25m fans push/pull. Its panels are white cause I went at it with some spray paint.

Thanks!

This will help me!

By the way, is this case modded? You changed the color?

Yeah I just spray painted it white and took the 200mm fan off the top and put it on the bottom as an intake(painted the fan as well it was red).

I like the what you did with the spray paint, is that hard to do? Do I need any special materials or just paint? Would you mind linking the materials?

It really wasn't hard to do. I used "Krylon Fusion"(gloss white) which comes in a bunch of colors and can be pick up for around $5 a can from walmart and some 3m painters tape bought from a hardware store. Took me about 4 cans to cover all the outside panels. When I googled case painting there's a bunch of guides and videos on how to do it but pretty much all of them are for if you want a mirrored finish, which i didn't want. To get a finish that's not mirrored you pretty much do the same thing as in most videos except sanding between coats.

spooky has a good guide for it: http://www.overclock.net/t/69626/spookys-computer-painting-guide
he did it on a laptop but its pretty much the same for your case

Do you guys know if I can mount a 200mm or 140mm fan on the money side (left side) of this case?

 

Also, I've noticed that the top area is divided for the top PSU, will that inter fair with my RX360?

Hey guys, 

 

I need help finding a fan that will fit on the money side, grill. I'm looking to add a 200mm or 20cm fan. 

 

I could fill up 9x spots with 120mm, but that's pushing it.

aerocool tend to be gimmicky so i stopped looking at them awhile ago. in the past, they seem to have innovative designs however were plagued by poor construction.
