Why not get the XSPC D5 dual bay res? You can stick that Koolance 450 in that res, and you'll have less tubing to route, less barbs, and the pump won't be in direct contact with metal, so less vibrations.

From your in's and out's, looks like your system/water is running anticlockwise...
Should go pump -> GPU blocks -> RAD -> Res -> pump

If you go with Swiftech blocks then get new MCW82's instead of MCW80's, those old blocks are very restrictive.

That's the one thing watercoolers have to do. All the parts come from everywhere, and shopping is part of the fun sometimes... =P
