    Reservoirs really only help in:
    1. filling
    2. bleeding

    If you want slightly easer filling and bleeding, they you can get one, but i would go no reservoir, why spend extra money when you can just fill and bleed it manually?

    Resorvior is also good so you can dump some ice in it.....but make sure you're insulated for condensation.

    I recommend 1/2 inch tubing, other than that all looks good

    i would also get a GPU block, something liekk the maze3 gpu block. clearflex 1/2 tubing will be good. u can make ur own resiervior or skip it if u want. as andy's watercooling post said, u dont need a reservior, it just helps to bleed the system better.

    for the fan, i would get the vantec stealth case fan. is around 20 buz canadian .
