I'm using the EX series from XSPC. They're about 35mm (35.5mm) thick radiators and with a fan that knocks it up to 60mm. I can't exactly tell you what the clearances are but if you want to keep the 5.25" bays, I'd put a 240 in the front, a 240 up top and a 120mm down the bottom. That way you obstruct nothing apart from the hard drives. Also when (and if) you cut the top radiator be sure to have the radiator before hand. It makes measuring and making sure clearances pass sooooooo much easier. Trust me
Another thing you could do is have the 360 up top, put it case-radiator-fan. This way you could just have a fan not in the section where the rad fouls the 5.25's. That's only using 2 120mm fans though so you might as well just go for a 240 up top and stick like a pump/res bay in the two bays or use whatever you want up there.
Hope I helped
