My personal rig with EVGA touches. I use it daily for graphic design and losing terribly at PUBG and crashing into walls in Forza.

EVGA CLC 240 (full load Ryzen temp 70C)
EVGA 2070 XC Gaming Black
GSkill Sniper-X 32GB 
WD Black 512
2x Sandisk 512 SSD
BeQuiet 3x 120mm
CoolerMaster M-710 ultralight mouse
Razor Chroma keyboard
Custom black/White cables
UV Strip light
Not a huge RGB fan but I like the subtle UV light glow

    Thank you! My downfall will be what EVGA decides to send me for my 1080ti FTW replacement. That was 12" long and I didn't have this pretty new rad. And I don't want to split the rad on either side of the front or run it from the top... grrrr not super keen on the 8pin placement on this card either or the USB under the CLC. but can't do much about those...

    Can you sandwich the front metal frame of that case between the fans & radiator ...... move fans to other side ... gain 25 mm inside case

    I was thinking about it and tried it with my *ahem other aio and found that it wasn't cooling the cpu well enough. 1) could be the aio and the brand of fans 2) have not attempted it with these. I'm good gaming on the 2070 for now and the 2-3 games I have fair very well with this card. Hoping the ti comes back to me (I'm almost positive it won't) then I guess I beg for a super :( but in all reality I can feel just a 2080 xc. Mind you mine was the three fan version not sure what the other dimensions are.

    Had to find your case ... its probably that solid front on the case's front cover
     
    Moving the fans might actually block the airflow from those front cover - side openings

    There is room about a half inch off the front of my bequiet fans when they were there. What I may try, is mount the rad on the outside of the case under the lid, have the fans inside, pull air and vent out top and back. Only the temp gauge knows the true outcome. Not really a fan of blowing more warm air onto the GPU, and also that front cover is pretty solid. It's very quiet. I saw a casemod once where someone added mesh into a cutout for the define mini. Just getting the padding off inside, looks like a nightmare. if I had a laser cutter I would create a honeycomb where the fans pull in from on the front, front mount my fans. case isn't even a year old yet so I don't really want to trash it. For what I do the 2070 is just fine. for what I might want to do later, I'll look at a new case. My daughter has the TT core v1 which is a fun case to build in as well. so I may just swap if I get bored.
