The xspc reservoir acts as a new top for your pump and has g1/4 threaded ports to add the barbs.

It can fit just 1 though right? 1 480 is all i need anyways. I hear that clamps are for extra safety measures, do you recommend them?

you have to make a cut for the fourth fan opening. The RX360 will do you fine if you prefer not to mod the case.

If you are interested in modding the 480mm rad into the 700/800D pm or click my build log below.

edit: yes, you will need clamps, sorry forgot those in the shopping cart . Only time you may not need clamps is when you are running a slightly smaller id tube and a larger od barb, ie 7/16" id tube on a 1/2" barb.

I think I am going to do 240 + 360 like you put instead of 1 480, that wouldn't require modding right?

on the 700/800D? You can put the 240 @ the bottom, click my build log. I did a RX360 first, then added the RX240 at the bottom, lastly I pulled those two for two RX480s. You can also hang the RX240 from the back to avoid modding and keep the RX360 inside.

Right, on the 800D, so you're saying it's possible to keep the RX360 and RX240 inside the case or does it have to hang on the back? If so, I think maybe 1 360 rad will do for now, I'd rather it not hang off the back.

Sorry for all the questions, I just want to ensure I'm doing everything correctly.

Edit: and on the XSPC CPU waterblock, you meant to add the intel one and not the amd, right?

Yes, just pick the intel one.

If you want to avoid modding, an RX360 will be good for your setup, you can actually add a small 120mm rad and stick inside the case, avoid the tick ones (ie rx120) or you'll have clearance issues.

If you put the 240 in the bottom, you're going to be cutting the case up anyways, so in that case do it right and put a 480 in the top.

You can fit rx120 in the back easy if you put the fan outside the case, like I do and still have clearance for chipset block.

What's a good 120mm rad that will fit along with the rx360 in the case?

Typically you'd want to match radiators, or at least the FPI.
