Yea, like I said, if you cut the little plastic grill off, it's more likely to fit a rad. It absolutely won't happen with the grill in place though. I can tell you that. If you're mounting an H100 rad, it's a pretty thin rad, and it should work out. Any reason you want it up there? Most of us mount the rad on the top below, and then mount the fans above it in the grill area.

like this. Unless you're dead set on fans on the inside? Noise difference between the two configurations is minimal.

Also don't forget that you'll need to remove an area for the fittings.

All sorts of external n stuff n things.

the fans in the upper side would suffocate. The top mesh is too much restrictive, like in my ex 690 I, both on Intake or exhaust.

with the rad in the top and the fans inside, blowing upwards, I think I'll get lower resistance to the air.... and better aesthesics...

I still think ideal setup is put your fast RAD on the bottom like I did with one pair of fans and 1 pair of shrouds, then a second RAD would do great in the very top, with fans below it with half-height shrouds in between.

But a lot of the good RAD's are thicker then 25 mm (like the H100 's RAD) and wouldn't as easily fir in the very top and might need to be inside the case, in which case, I think it would be better to have fans in the top part pulling air through the RAD and our of the case.



Spoiler!

I'll do a dual rad loop, magicool PRO slim on the top, and a EK XT240 on the bottom.... I already got those...
according to one of my metric tapes, the magicool has 29mm....

I'm almost certain.... just would like to SEE someone that had it tested....

When I put my H100 RAD up top, I only had to cut the lip between the mesh and the front HDD bay. It barely fit under the rest of the plastic though If I recall. It might fit if you remove the rest of the plastic on the top piece and leave just the mesh though.

As previously stated you might have to trim the metal case itself to allow for fittings, luckily the tubes on the H100 were relatively small and had no issues, I forget the exact clearance they had though.
