No, it can mount to any 120mm or 140mm fan or fan mount (so any radiator).
The bracket can also be mounted in some cases or you can drill holes for it. See the manual for the dimensions of the screw holes.
Please click "Edit System Specs" and fill out your system info.

In the 540 you are most likely going to need to mount the pump in the backside compartment. There won't be room in the main chamber unless you are using one super tiny GPU.

XD5 unit offers the following mounting options.
  • Using enclosed fan mounting adapter plates (120mm and 140mm fan hole size), bottom or side
  • Directly to case sheet metal, bottom or side

For direct mount and hole pattern, please refer to the XD5 QSG, page 10.
Some cases provide compatible hole pattern options, for other you will need advanced measures to install the XD5 unit.

As for the Air 540 case.
To fully utilize available radiator options in the primary chamber you will need to plan for the pump in the secondary chamber.
