    Default Pump/Res question

    So I am sort of at a loss of what to look for (kinda). I am planning a water cooling loop in the future to fit inside of a 760T. Here's a "map" of how I intend on doing the loop:


    (be jelly of my super-awesome-amazing drawing skills!)

    The radiators are going to both be XSPC's Crossflow line of EX rads. the block is still undecided for both the CPU and the GPU since I cannot afford the GPU I want yet, and the block for each will be a matching affair (I am REALLY hoping that Swiftech sells the block for their new H220X system separately... it looks SO DAMN GOOD!!!). I would LIKE to mount the pump and res where they are positioned in the image, but on the floor of the case. What pump/res combo would work for doing this, or is there a kit that will allow me to mount a tube res and pump system on the floor? Currently I am eyeballing the XSPC D5 Photon 170 res/pump, but that one appears to be optimized for wall mounting and I'd rather not try to mount this on the motherboard tray (I don't think I'd like the way it looked). Any suggestions? Worst case scenario I can always try and mount it near the bottom of the motherboard tray I suppose.

    Good choice other than a 170 would be all he needs you can lay it down, or install it at the back
    I had mine mounted on one of my builds down the right side of the MB tray and I thought it looked pretty good

    Mike that Photon 270/D5 is huge just to let you know. i would say if you gonna use a tube res you can mount the res to the back of the front rad using these
