The case can fit 2 120mm fans but not the radiator which length is longer than the two fans.

Its not compatible....It supports two fans at the top but doesn't have enough room for a 240mm rad which is why its not fitting. You are just going to have to return or sell the cooler and get a new one that will fit or just ghetto mount it somehow in the case.

Mount the fans in pull configuration, so the fans are mounted to the case, and the rad is mounted to the fans that are mounted to the case. might need some extra support though.

That isn't going to change how it fits. It is still the same dimensions at the end.

Hmmm, I see.

I checked Corsairs Website, the only rad that can be mounted is a 120mm rad in the back exhaust vent.
