Can the 280X fit 2x 240/280 Radiators? (front and bottom)

I'm planning on building a Ryzen 9 3900x setup with an ITX board in the 280X

(still waiting on the x570 ITX boards to be released)

 

Firstly, is there enough clearance/room to place a 240/280mm radiator on the front and the bottom (with fans)?

 

The front (intake) 240/280 radiator will cool the 3900x while the bottom (intake) 240/280 radiator will cool my GTX 1080 (and when it comes out at a later date, the RTX 3080)

 

Secondly, is this a sound airflow setup? Front - Bottom intake, Top - Back exhaust.

I'll be elevating the case by adding rubber feet (1.5") to increase airflow at the bottom of the case, and in addition, I'll be custom fitting 40mm (exhaust) fans at the back grille.

I think you are pushing your luck with the bottom mounted radiator and GPU. It may be possible with a single slot GPU, but things are going to be tight. If you use a radiator on the front, it will impact the bottom placement. 280mm is out. A 240 might slide back far enough.

 

This thread has some pictures on the first page. There was an older one with even more you may be able to find searching the case forum for '280X'.
