Unless presented with a good reason not to, I will be going with one of the bay res/pump combos. If I go with the D5, it'll be with the Danger Den Monsoon Premium or XSPC dual-slot D5 pump/res. If the DDC, it'll be either Bitspower Mini Tank or XSPC dual-slot DDC pump/res. These should all fit in my allotted space with at least 15mm to spare on either side for cable management (PSU side) and air flow (fan and radiator side).

Now I just need to decide between the D5 and DDC pumps. I suspect the Monsoon Premium will be the quietest of them simply due to the sturdiness, with the XSPCs coming in behind because they enclose the pumps fully. The Bitspower Mini will definitely be the smallest, allowing the most room for cable management, airflow, and tubing... but will likely be the loudest.
