I think push/pull is desireble especially on thicker rads and especially if you intend to slow down your fans. It's harder for the fans to push the air throught a thick rad. Just have a look here. The ST30 outperforms the UT60 at lower 1100 rpm and less speeds even thought it is half as thick. The reason for this is because the fans have trouble pushing the air throught the thick rad yet they can do it just fine with a slimner rad at low speeds.
And yeah, the GT 1450 rpm will do just fine. If you find them a bit noisy, you can always get them on a fan controller later on. Below 1100 rpm you won't hear them unless you stick your ear next to them and they will still have more pressure than any other fans out there.

What about anti-kink coils? Are those worth the money?

Any suggestions on a UV reactive red coolant? I want the coolant to glow inside my res.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15648/ex-res-352/Alphacool_Repack_Dual_525_Acrylic_Reservoir_-_Clear_-_Revision_2_15033.html?tl=g30c97s168

I'm sticking a 4" UV cold cathode in the slot on the top of it, and then red LEDs in the back of it for when the UV isn't on.

Pump: flow is almost irrelevent to performance no matter what the pros told you. As long as you get 1 GPM of flow, you are good to go. The Koolance D5 Vario is rated by Martin as the most quiet right now and that would be plenty of power for you.

Loop order: as was already stated, your component order matters not. So long as your pump is right after your res and below it.

Rads: the Alphacool Full Copper line is the best performer right now.
Take a look at the UT60's comparative performance here.
And notice how low restriction the UT60 is here.
Best performer at all speed ranges, very low restriction, copper fins, copper tubes, copper chambers. Basically, everything that touches the water is copper. The UT60 cools so well that 3 or 4 of them will put an end to global warming.

Fwiw, I've used AP-15's, Cougars, and Corsair SP120's (high performace) on my XSPC ES240 rad (also used the GT's and Cougars on my RX120) and the AP-15's and SP120's are better than the Cougars, and the SP120's are just a little better than the AP-15's but they are much louder at full tilt. I'll second the AP-15's as a great fan for price/performance/noise. However if your going to run your fans at full speed and noise doesn't matter then the SP120 HP fans are your best bet.

Actually, according to that graph, the UT60 outperforms the ST30 until the fan speeds get down to 900rpm. Below 900 rpm, the ST 30 outperforms the others.

Noise is important, and I want to run a silent system. I think I'll go either with the AP-15 or the AP-14 for lower noise.
