There's no point in spending the extra money on the silver TDX block, you'll get pretty much the same thing from the copper. Just make sure you get the brass top one. I think the CPAC maze4 is the copper one but I'm not positive. Either way copper is the better choice IMO since acetal can crack.

Pump you want the MCP655/D5 pump, for tubing get the tygon stuff, and for coolant just use a mixture of 90% distilled water and 10% zerex

A reservoir is just a storage area for water, like a tank. A T-line is just a T shaped Y splitter in the loop which has a piece of tubing connected to a fillport which used for filling/bleeding the system. Both do the same thing and results won't really vary, T-Line is better if you are short on space though
