Fractal Design C vs Fractal Design R6 with Zotac RTX 2080ti Amp Exreme

Here’s my parts list so far: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Y4wnfH

I was originally planning on building in a Fractal Design Define C, but I got a great deal on a Zotac RTX 2080ti Amp Extreme which is 324mm long, so I can’t put an AIO on the front, and I’ll be limited to a single front fan. I’m debating squeezing an AIO as a top mount, but I’m worried about fitting it in as well as general temperature control. Should I just bite the bullet and upgrade to a Fractal Design Define R6, or do you think temperatures and 240mm AOI top mount will be ok? I won’t be using ANY of the drive cages in the R6, so the extra space would just be to accommodate the GPU and more fans. Thanks for your opinions.

Becuase you have the aourus master id imagine you would want to oc the 9900k so getting a 360mm aio is advised as it gets very hot and in combination with a 2080ti the extra fan mounts and cooling options will be nice
