I've got a 120mm for my CPU, and another for my GPU. Will they both fit in the top portion of the case at the same time?

A 120mm will definitely fit in the top: https://www.bitfenix.com/img/products_images/3034.png?1470279862

As for the front, you might need to remove the bottom drive cage.

I'm asking if I can fit two single 120mm radiators. That's two separate 120mm radiators with fans. For example, here is my setup now. I basically want a case where I can put both of these radiators on the top. Reason being I currently can only use these two radiators in my case if I have reverse airflow. Which doesn't work well because the hard drives and other parts of the motherboard do not get the airflow they need.

Take cpu rad to rear as exhaust, top exhaust.
GPU as intake and add a 140mm to replace the front top for intake. This will give you much more need airflow and cooling.

I'm more inclined to do the reverse of that and have the GPU as exhaust and CPU as intake, but during heaving gaming that would cause the heat dissipated from the CPU to enter the case and in turn heat everything up. If I had the GPU rad as intake, it would be blowing 60 degree C air into the case, which isn't desirable.

Essentially it would be ideal to have a case where I can mount rads to the top, so there is no conflict with heat entering the case. It would make the most sense.

If this case will not work, do you have a suggestion for one that will work for my situation?

Here's another case I was thinking of, looks like there's a lot of flexibility in the top portion of the case.

You are over thinking on this. Have you even tried to change the cooling layout?

Other if you want GPU cooled, mounting on top, you will not have the room to have it correctly seated on GPU.
No case will work for your situation. This would be an issue with the G10 and how the tubing is lined up.

You're right, I'm thinking about this a little too much. Funny enough, I have just enough room for the radiator tubes to move around the graphics card so I can mount the radiator at the rear. Keep the CPU rad where it is, and put a 140mm fan on the bottom.

Thanks for the help!
