I may purchase this case but I have a concern.

Since I am using 120mm AIO coolers, and installing the radiator+fan at the top of the case suits my requirement. However, the technical specification provided by Silverstone's website about this case reveals that the radiator at the top has to be less than 30mm thick.

Can anyone confirm that setting up a 120mm AIO cooler's fan+radiator (about 53 mm thick) at the top of this case is possible or not ?

Based on what I can see, that would impede on your memory modules. Placing it at the front on top would probably be the best scenario.

So it can be placed at the front on top of the stock fans? Would that block the air intake from the front fans? I am just worried...

No you would add it as a push pull so the fan with the case is pushing air through the rad on one side and your fan is pulling that air through. The other 2 fans would still be providing cool air to your board and components.

if its just a 120, you can easily mount it to the rear. Inisde or outside. Outside might need some ghetto-ing.

I have a problem here: the region I am in only has the Corsair H80i v2. It is rather thick, would it fit into the rear of the case without interfering with the motherboard?

I don`t think based on the specs that it would be a good idea to put it there. You could put it on the outside of the case but I don`t think you will like the way it looks. The other thing is that you would be getting nothing but cool air from the front and the back would include heat produced by the GPU, components and the board itself. Having the rad at the front means you have none of that. It will probably translate to a 3-5 degree drop for the CPU at idle.

What do the specs say? You know you have XX amount of clearance, how thick is that??

I noticed some build has a 240mm AIO mounted to the back of the front fans. But that setup will block the front fans intake. The fantastic thermals of this case is based on the stock fans configurations (Front and Rear), so other than mounting the AIO on the top will preserve this advantage.

So, what choices I have left with is perhaps an air cooler...?

According to the specs the radiator is 49MM by itself.

If it is the same case I saw it has 3 120mm front intake fans. The cooler you mentioned is a 120MM cooler so you would still have 2 120MM fans blowing directly into the case. The issue with yours is the thicknesss, I stated before if you install the rad on the top 120MM intake and use the included fan on the rad as another intake you will get the best possible temps. I would not replace that unit with an air cooler.

Yes, I almost forgotten I can relocate the stock fan to the top so not o waste it.

By the way, may I ask questions about MasterBox NR600? Can the optical drive cage be removed? If it can be, then the removal will free up a more fan slot so three fans at the front will be possible.

the case (depending when it was written) should have come with a user manual which should show what size and where to mount radiators.
