Benefits of using a reservoir and how can you tell which way the loops gonna push water i mean isnt the pump where the water is being pushed from the begining of the loop ?

A Res makes filling the loop much easier. It is a big pain using a T-line. I found myself spill a few times when I used the T-line. The downside is a Res takes up space, and is very difficult to drain. You dont need a res, because your RAD is the res. Your loop order should look just like mine. Water gets filled into the REs/Rad, flows DOWN to the Pump, then up to CPU, and back to the RAD. That is the best way. If you want the best of both worlds, add a Tline, not to use to fill, but to have there to Drain when the time comes. I would put it like in this drawing.

If you live near a hardware store, go to the plumbing section, they have some good 1/2 Brass T's that I use. Look nice too
