Make sure you can fit 360mm rad on top and minimum of a 280mm rad in front.
Otherwise ideally two 360mm rads top and front.

If you're stuck with a particular case just cut to the chase no pun intended and use a external rad system with 2-3... 360mm rads with fans... as a separate unit piping too and from the computer.
Thanks. My understanding is the H500M can fit a 360 in either spot and definitely a 2xx in the remaining location. Although I think 360's are a bit tight based on the comments in the specs. Top sounds like a max of 30mm with fans on top in a pull config (says 43mm clearance on a 360) and the front the specs say 360mm (70mm clearance w/radiator lid & M.portremoved) which I'm not sure how to decipher. The P600S can do a 360 top or front, 420 front and 280 top.
