lay your case on its side, with the pump facing upwards. So the pumps closest to the surface you laid it on . Drill a hole in your 5.25 bay beside your bung in your res, use a flexible hose and funnel and fill the system bit by bit turn it on turn it off add more water each time replacing the bung each time.

Or you could just put a 90 degree fitting on the top of the res leading out to a tube as well.
I don't want to use any port but the top port of the res to fill it up as I think it will just make a mess. As for how I am going to do that my current idea is to either make use of a small funnel that I have and if that does not work, attach a thin bit of pipe to said funnel. Plan C would be to get an extra 90 degree fitting or two and make a small fill line from the top of the res to the open area above the res and pump, but that is a last resort as I would then have to go through an entire import just for a couple fittings. The shipping costs on importing parts really puts me off, I checked the other day because I wanted to get a couple Bitspower stop fittings and some black O-Rings to replace the green ones. For roughly $10 of small things, the only shipping option available to me from PPC was $30 to $35

The small funnel that I have:
just work, but there is the possibility that water will go spilling everywhere if I try to fill it up with this funnel. I'll only find out when im ready to actually start filling the loop.

I am currently trying to figure out what color I want to do the chrome trim.. with the black bezel and white surrounding it.. the red you have actually looks amazing. I feel like it gives a Formula F1 type of look. But again, you have some great skills for sure. Should open a case modding service
Thank you for your kind words
I was a bit pessimistic about spraying the trim, but it ended up being quite easy. I got some assistance from spiderm0nkey as she shared what she did with the chrome strips in her mod, but if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
