Magicool "Monsta" It's a 560mm cooler but you can install quad 120mm fans and forget about the Corsair AF120, they're useless even as case fans. You really want at least 6mmH2O on a rad that thick.
A Delta AFB1212H at the very least. And it's not all that loud

You need to measure how thick a radiator you can fit up the top before it hits the motherboard. I doubt a monster will fit, it doesn't look like there is 80mm of room.

Just from the looks of pictures you should be able to fit an XT45 and maybe a UT60 but you will need to measure carefully and choose the one that will fit.

Unless you can fit push pull fans (or one set of 38mm thick fans at the minimum) and an 86mm thick radiator in the space, I would recommend either going with the UT60 480 or XT45 480 with push pull fans. They are two of the top performing radiators, bar none, and push pull not only boosts the cooling power 10-20 percent, it also let's you run the fans at a lower speed while achieving better temps.

These rads scale incredibly well with fan speed, in fact I have 4 Koolance 120x25 2600rpm 106cfm/5.4mmH2O fans in push pull on my UT60 240 and the benefits of the high speeds (and thus high pressure) are very worthwhile.
