Fans: Push/Pull system. I assume that would be fans on either side of the reservoir allowing for more cooling and heat exchange correct? I assume that would help with efficiency.
Rad size. I'll just got with the 360. Gives options if I ever want to open up the system.
Currently in my cart (it's a breakdown of the kit) this is saying the D5 pump is not included. That's another $189.99 but I suppose the cost is worth it!

As 1krage said, the VPP655 = D5 pump.

Push/pull implies fans on both sides as you said, 3 pushing air into the rad, 3 pulling air out. It's ideal, but not required. Last I checked it was a 2-3 degree difference. The only thing worth noting is that it can cause some space issues in certain cases, but you should be fine in the 932. I'd recommend getting 3 more of the XSPC fans if you want to do push/pull though, it can cause problems if the fans aren't equally specced on both sides.

This[/] is the biocide I use, if you want to toss in a bottle of that.

Edit: my tablet hates URL tags, sorry about that.
