I do not know about the front 280 but if you are going to put a 360mm below with either just push OR pull you can go upto 45mm. The issue for anything thicker is the wiring to the power switch and front I/O get in the way. The fans will mount outside of the bracket and the rad on the inside.

Here is a link to a build log that shows some pictures from the fan hole in the back.

The builder fast_fate says an Alphacool XT45 JUST barely fits with the I/O installed.

And here you can see that the two front fans will affect what you can place in the top radiator position. With my setup in this picture there is a little over 10mm between the front 120x25mm fans and the leading edge of the 360x60mm radiator.
