Ya you wouldn't even need to squeeze it. I have an ax1200 in there now and even with a 240 rad in the flex bays the res fits fine. I bought the ek 250 x3 res but I forgot how the pump needs to be below the res which makes the combo too tall. It's tight for me because I have a 360 in the roof which obviously limits the height you have.
I would definitely wait like you said until the case gets there. I ordered a bunch of parts first which wasn't a good idea. But don't worry for an matx case it has a lot of room.
I was really happy because I only wanted push on my 360 rad and I wanted the fans on the inside so I would have needed really short screws for the drop in mount. The screws used for the flex bays which there are extra work perfectly to secure the rad to the drop in mount with fans on the inside. I thought it was really cool how that worked out.
