There are 20 screws that need to be removed, including removing the front input panel to get to a screw. It's pretty easy, unless you're me:

I'm having trouble with removing the top panel so I can drop my RX360 in. One of the screws is just spinning in place, and I can't get anything under it to lever it.

Maybe I'll just have to drill it out when I drill the holes for reservoir.

Why do you have to take off the top panel to bolt in an RX360?

I don't have to remove it. I want to do it that way though, much easier for me to see what I'm doing when screwing it in.

That is true, and I have had those screws just spin in place more than once on me. Kinda hate it but oh well.

Got the build up and running last night:, gonna make some smaller cables, ordered some new sata cables (need straight to straight) tidy up the back and all set. Hopefully within a week.

Anyone know of what size screws for mounting 140mm fans into the overhead slot of the case? I mounted a water 2 extreme inside the case, and the default case screws are too short.

There are some long screws but I'd like something more secure.

Do you have it push pull, i yes then you need around ~ 35mm long screws.

If you dont have any fans there, then 5mm long screws should hold fine. I'm using those to hold my 480 monster rad on the top without any issues.

Can anyone guide me in the right direction here.. it seems impossible to add my other gentle tycoons pulling from the bottom of the rad..

Yes,

I mounted an XSPC RX360 radiator that is 60mm thick on the top with 3 fans in the upper fan bay and 3 fans mounted on the radiator for a "push/pull" config.

The motherboard I used, GA-Z77X-UP7 would only allow me to mount 2 fans on the inside without modification. Some people are ok with that, some will cut a notch on one fan to make the 6th fan fit. Me, I ground down the "rolled over edges" on the top of the Switch 810 plate to make everything fit nicely.

You can see all the photos of what and how I did it in my build log ... Muzzle Flash ... in my profile.

I have, it is a piece of cake. I did it to mod the top to get an extra thick rad installed up there.
