i'd redo the tubing too... turn the rad around... mount the res in the 5.25 bay and the pump in the HDD bay if possible... saw someone do that... they actually mounted the res using double sided auto tape and ran a tube straight to the pump in the 5.25 bay... looked very clean... here is what i did... albeit a different setup:

It's a great block.

Personally, I use the D-tek Fuzion GFX v2, but in the end, either one will work just fine.

I personally use the Enzotech ones as they have some of the quality and thermal tape.

Petras stocks em.

regarding my tubing... should i take the two top fans on the rad off and just leave two on the bottom?

also... is it bad to use food coloring in your loop?
