How much clearance do you have between the top of the inside of the case and the top of the motherboard? Enough for rad or just fans?
4.5 cm inside to the MB, aprox. 3.5 cm room up top, a little over 2 cm clearance from the top of the motherboard to the bottom of fan/rad, so no push/pull for me on this build either.

I haven't decided for sure yet, but my current thinking (providing access to the barbs works out) is that having the rad on top, and the fans internal drawing air in would make cleaning the dust bunnys out of the rad exceptionally easy.
