Also what radiator would be the best for me? Im looking at EX420 rad apparently they do just as good as the RX because of the new flow design.
This question gets answered all the time in the Switch 810 thread.
The short answer is "No, not out of the box" for any 420 rad.
NZXT is making available a new top panel with modified hole locations to accept 140 fan size rads that use 15mm fan to fan hole spacings, which is all of them, except Hardware Labs, Black Ice rads which have 20mm fan to fan hole spacings, which is what the 810 has natively.
If you really don't want to have to drill any new holes or mod anything, go with a 360, they'll all bolt right up.
The added plus of ther 360, is that you'll have no problems running a full thickness one (~60mm) with push pull fans without mobo 8 pin connector interference issues that some mobos have with 420 setups.
If you're determined to go with a 420, the Nexxos XT45 420 is the best shot to insure comapatability with about any mobo choice, you'll just have to drill 8 new mounting holes for the middle and rear fans.
