Oh I rememer your other post now. An I now undestand your need for combo pump and reservoir. you could also consider this :

XSPC Dual 5.25 Reservoir for One Laing DDC's Single Loop XSPC Dual 5.25 Reservoir for One Laing DDC's Singlel Loop [XSPC-DBSL-1DCC] - $58.99 : DazMode, Canadian PC Water Cooling and Modding Store

wich is what they are using on the picture, I think.... You get to install your Laing pump, and one day if you ever want to expand the loop, a laing pump will be enough. I would go that way instead of the combo you listed.

Also, they look to be using a thinner rad, la Switech of something of the same kind. Is this a shroud? It seems like there is 2 fans on the rad but I cant see the reason for it. Must be a shroud.

Sorry to highjack, but does anyone know what PS and Res that they are using in that pic?
That looks perfect for my 800D planned build.

edit: Thanks Matsa!

The only reason I like the H50/70 vs your own custom loop, is the H50/70 is maintenance free. No bleeding, refilling, priming every 6 months.

People use the h70/50 due to the ease of use and the price, not because they are "noob". Anyway, thanks for your input. I'm still interested in how much of a performance gain you get from a custom 120.1 radiator in push/pull vs a closed loop like the h70. The only difference between the two are longer tubes, a separate reservoir, a separate pump, and a more expensive cpu block and radiator. There must be someone out there that has had experience with both an h70 and a 120.1
