I have seen some mounted on the PSU, up against the left side panel before. I'm not sure if there will be space in your case for it not to clash with the GPU, but worth a measure.

Those ek spin res are pretty good and sturdy. Me personally, I would recommend it.

i might have found away to make it work but im looking at getting one of these if it doesn't http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_318_659&products_id=25101 or http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_318_665&products_id=3542 but does any one have any experience with one or the other? i'd really like to have my pump and res together so thats really my only turn off toward the ek spin res.

Both res you linked are good. If you want a clean look with your DDC mounted to the res, then go for the XSPC res.
