Any res is acceptable, the larger the res the easier it is to fill and bleed but a res isn't required at all.

Sweet! What size fittings should I use, I assume larger means better flowrate.

Well a larger res will spread more heat correct?

Also, I'm assuming that since heated water rises, you'd have output on the bottom and input on the top. Also because of that would it make more sense to mount my res on the bottom of the case in order to avoid it heating up more?

hmm...don't think so

technically you dont even need a res. so i don't think bigger means better. bigger pump is needed though, if your loop is big.
