A 240 wouldn't work without modding in any of the linked cases (besides the Cooler Master, but its not advised to put the rad on the door). They do sell single-bay pump/res combos (just not in the Rasa kits) as a heads-up thumb.gif

I'm using a NZXT Vulcan (hard to get in Australia, I hear) with the EX240, a 92MM on the back, and a 120MM upfront. I have a fan controller occupying one of the 5.25" bays, so I couldn't use the XSPC dual-bay. I chose the standalone one made by XSPC and put it at the bottom of the case, works perfectly.
