Turn the rad so the barbs are on top and facing in to the case. then drill the 2 holes to run the tubes directly into the case. That will give you a much cleaner setup overall, and reduce the chance of kinking a tube.

Yeah, distilled and biocide is as good as it gets on the budget us water coolers have. There are some exotic fluids made by 3M, but they're nowhere near affordable.
