Waiting on Zen 3 + Ampere to pull the trigger on my 7th DS system but in the meantime, does anyone know which of the three (Lynx, Lumos, Velox) cases can accept a top mounted radiator?

The recent GamersNexus posts below in regards to the detriments of front mounted radiators, especially with tubes at the top, has given me pause.

Having said that, as I prefer air coolers for reliability/longevity reasons, I will probably just end up asking DS to special order me an air cooler and since I'm in the Bay Area, I will just drive over to them to pick the system up and avoid the shipping danger.
