The only thing is the 360 rad takes up the top two bays, only thing you can fit in there is probably a res or maybe a fan controller, depending on the depth. I fit my res in there, just enough room. Take a look at the second pic for that.

Here is the clearance between rad and ram

and here is the 360 rad into the top 2 drive bays.

Thanks for the feedback.

Ok... so it seems like you still have about an inch, inch and a half clearance between the rad's bottom fan and the RAM clip then, right? I use a push configuration at present which is working fine for me at this time so I should have plenty of additional room. Also, how thick is your rad? My rad is 38mm (close to an inch and a half I figure). Would all three fans have open access to the outside air (meaning, no blocked fans)?

The occupying of two bays may be an issue. The pump/res combo I have is dual bay. I still need space for the DVD drive then, right? From the CM site I thought I would have 6 bays all together... two would be taken up by the rad/fan combo. 2 by the pump/res and then the DVD leaving me with one bay available.

Yeah, i would say a good inch or so left. The rad i have is a HardwareLabs SR1 360, so the dimension on the website says 54mm thick, plus i have 25mm fans. So 79mm together. I removed the top 200mm fan and added 3 120 fans ontop of the rad. None of my fans are blocked, just the return hose back to the res is right next to the fan closest to the res, but that only right at the point where the hose meets the res. There is still some room between the two.

Yeah i had one bay left originally, so now i reconfigured my loop and fit my dual bay XSPC res in the top slot. Since the res is about half the length of a drive, i was still able to use the top 2 bays, The res is a perfect size where it still fits in. So now i have the dual bay, dvd drive, hdd in so that leaves me with 2 bays open. My ssd is just sitting on top of my hdd so it isn't using a bay. If you like i can take some pictures when i get home later tonight for the bays.

ADDING: ATCS 840... (all though not an actual HAF case, but just in case anyone knows.)
The CM HAF 932 case will mount the RX360 XSPC radiator in the top no problem. Mobo has plenty of room. I have seen pics of the same rad in a HAF x case, and the spacing is closer, since the roof is not spaced as far away from the mobo. Thumbnail is the RX360 in my 932 case.

Here's some pics from the forums of a HAF X with RX360 rad

Those were the pix I needed to see! I do have an advantage though... I have the RS360 which is 38mm vs. the RX360 which is 65mm.

From seeing those pix... is it possible/advisable to remove those 230mm fans and place the radiator in that spacing with just the 3x120mm fans hanging into the case? Seems possible from those pictures.

If your rad is only 38mm it could possibly fit. Doubt my rad would fit in there since there's only a little more clearance while the fan is in. I have my rad hanging from the bracket with fans on the top and bottom.

I feel a trip to my local CompUSA this afternoon to check this possibility out. If I can fit the rad in the top cubby hole, then I will be shooting for the HAF X... Boy do I have plans!!!

Assuming Mrs. Kah allows me... :-(

Just tell her that your going to take out the trash, then just run down to comp real quick. She won't even notice you were gone at all.

Until she balances the checkbook on Sunday! Then it's whirlwind frying pan time on Uncle Kah here!
