This is what it looks like mounted on top of the bracket betwen the glass and the top of the case. I forgot to mention I attempted the proper mount before i added 3 more fans to the rad for push pull. I did not plan on push pull initially. That was an on the fly decision as I was not sure if it would fit, but i talked to someone was able to fit it with the same size gpu I have.

Pics look bad as the lighting is terrible where I’m working. (Dining room table lol)

Ok, I think it’s the push pull 360mm causing the issue, but I am surprised you can’t push the top 120s towards the back. Is it not an open rail? Single screw holes on the front edge?

You might have to make the H150i lines go “out” toward the side door and go around if you flip it. That may or may not be preferable.

*Beat me with the pictures. Can’t quite see the front edge and collision zone. The only side affect of being that close to the glass is it will create some back pressure and reduce maximum airflow. However, you will never need to blast the top fans. Then can do their exhaust duties at a gentle pace.

Even without the push pull it would not fit. I will say that I didn't try and manipulate the cooler lines very much as I don't know how strong they or the fittings are. The top mounting bracket has screw guides, not sure what to call them. I had it as far towards the rear as they could go. They don't freely slide if that's what you mean.

I didn't take any pics with just the 3 fan pull setup showing how it didn't fit with the 2 fans up top. Their is a video of a guy building this case and he could not fit it either. That is where I saw he mounted them above the bracket.

I do have a pic of the rad installed but without the fan bracket up top.

EDIT: Added a pic of the top fan mount. As you can see the fans can't slide back.

I see. With the radiator behind the fans that pushes it back further into the case. When I did this in the 740, I had the fans on the interior and the radiator against the front rail. That appears to make the difference. That top mount "fan rack" is new so I have not worked with it. Can you slide the 120s as far back as possible and the rack? Unfortunately, this kind of re-affirms my opinion the 680/740 is a better 140mm case than 120. You can put a 280mm radiator top, front, or bottom and on 2 of the three for multi-radiator systems.
