The case I am most drawn to is the Cullinan appearance wise and Crystal 460x. The 460x does come with static pressure RGB fans, but it is the smallest case of them all being 2 inches in height and length. Might be too tight to get the rads in it comfortably. The Vanguard looks nice, but seems like very little details about it online. I like the 5t's tempered glass and modularity, though not the red accents and it looks impossible to get some parts like the tempered glass panel for the Pro 5. Not a fan of how CM hyped up modular cases, then didn't follow up with parts.
Granted the case is cheap, though I wonder how a custom loop would work in these.
Just cause you can do 140mm x2 on top, do not mean a rad is sup[ported.
CM front max is 35mm Top has really bad exhaust or none at all. Plus looks like crap and being high cost. Not worth it.
DIYPC the front fans mounting is not spaced correctly, and placement blocks the side vents.
Crystal is 240 max only on top, but may have clearance issues if going with 360 rad in front with 35mm+ for more.
Rosewill 360 front limit of 35mm max. With 240 on top.
As for thickness, you will need to get proper measurements. As what I mentioned is estimates.
