Unfortunately, neither of those cases will support 280rad on to top. There isn't enough clearance to fit a rad and fans. There are pre drilled holes to support 2 x 140 fans but the space between the top panel and the top of the mb is too close,

There are multiple people who found themselves in that predicament of 280mm and wanting to keep the front 3x120 RGB fans. You can either mount the 280mm behind the 3x120 with some longer screws and swallow the inefficiency or some people do that and put a pair of 2x140mm fans behind the radiator on the interior to act as the working set with the pretty RGB in front as mostly decorative. I have not done either and cannot add more to this, but several others have successfully managed.
