Personally, I hate bay-reservoirs. They look like butt. I prefer the front of my case to look clean, sleek, and uniform. I can't stand when people have two DVD drives, fan controllers, bay reservoirs, etc. etc. It just looks cluttered...
A good tube reservoir, with two pumps

ok so i've watch dazmode review on pump.. just saw the replacement tops of the pump

D5 has more flow rate but less pressure.. DDC has less Flow but more pressure.. ? which is best for a single loop ?

also how do i combine a DDC or D5 to a top mount res ?

its just a question but i've got a DDC pump with Acetal top that i've planned on my build after the video Daz made and thinking of using the bay res + making a hole in my 5.25 bottem bay and putting the tube threw it and mount my pump underneath the 5.25 for less clutter

This is a layout on paint i've made to show what i what to do

Good decision with a single loop.

For the loop order I would go like this:

Reservoir-pump-cpu-gpu-rad1-rad2-reservoir

My loop for exemple:

Reservoir-pump1-pump2-rad1(3x120)-cpu-gpu1-gpu2-rad2(3x140)-reservoir

Good luck with the build and show us some pics once completed.

I wouldn't go much lower then 50CFM for a rad, I love GT AP-15's they are about the best fan that isn't loud at stock speeds.
