This is my water loop:
XSPC RayStorm High Performance Acetal CPU Liquid Cooling Block - Special Edition Copper

Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta Triple 120mm Radiator - 80mm Thick

Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta Dual 120mm Radiator - 80mm Thick

Swiftech MCP655™ 12v Water Pump w/ Speed Control and 3/8" Conversion Kit (317 GPH)

XSPC Photon 270 Tube Glass Cylinder Reservoir

EK EKoolant Premium Liquid Cooling Premix Coolant - 1L - UV Blue

Bitspower Matte Black G1/4" Barb Fitting - 1/2" ID (BP-MBWP-C01)

Primochill Nylon Reusable UV Reactive Hose Clamp - UV Blue - 3/4" OD

Alphacool G1/4 90° Low Profile Fitting Adapter - Deep Black

PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing 1/2"ID x 3/4" OD - 10ft Retail Pack - Brilliant UV Blue (PFLEXA10-34-B) w/ Free Sys Prep

Corsair Air Series SP120 (CO-9050014-WW) 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan (Twin Pack)

Noctua NF-P14 FLX 140mm Case cooler

MB-ASSTX79 Water Block (ASUS Sabertooth X79 Motherboard)

XSPC 5.25" Bay Temperature Sensor Dual Display Mount (BAYSENS)

Thing is I want to put the 360 on top in push-pull configuration.So total thickness will be 80 + 25x2=130mm.Question is will it fit my case?My motherboard is the Asus Sabertooth X79.Again I want to use the 240 along the 5.25' bay as I will only use 1 ssd.Do you think the airflow will be good(this too will be in push-pull)?Though I can afford to get a much bigger case,I really like the HAF X and could do with a little modding.

Deleted your other threads. There is no need to post the same thing in each sub-forum.

For your top rad you'll have to put the pull fans under the top cover. And that area is set up for 200mm fans, so you'll have to get creative with mounting smaller fans. To mount the 240 in the front, you'll have to rip out the 2 hot-swap bays. Other than that you should be good.

there are tons of photos on google of HAF X water cooled.  From what I can tell you can put a 360 rad on top without a issue but maybe not a 80mm using push pull. kyfire is right you will have to put the fans under the top cover. If you have the money the Stacker would be a better choice without giving up anything.

Ok, pulled my trusty HAF X out and did some measurements.   Yup you should be able to squeeze a 360mm in the top, BUT even with fans on one side it's going to partly block your rear fan and will cover partly over your mobo  and be mighty close to your ram. In other words your choice of rads will be a very tight fit.

A 360X80mm rad in push, pull configuration will not fit in the top of a HAF X chassis,.. you would be into your motherboard.

 

The 932 is slightly larger than the X,.. and a 360X56mm rad works nice in push,.. push-pull would be tight.

 

You would be better off using a pedestal for mounting 80mm rad below chassis.

 

   932 chassis with RX360X56 in push configuration.

I have an RX360 with push/pull 25mm fans in my 932. It's tight, but it fits.

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

Thanks Waco,.. so we agree the 80mm with push-pull is not going to clear motherboard,.. :lol:

That's what I alluded to. in order for him to have push pull the pull fans would have to be placed under the top cove where CM puts the top 200mm fans. But even still with an 80mm rad and 25mm fan in push inside the case, it will still overlap the mobo.  With a thinner rad it might work but he'ds lose some cooling with the smaller thickness, In my HAF X i have a 240mm in push and it just barely clears the mobo.
