Did you mount your reservoir and put using existing holes, and what screws(size, type) did you use for both? 3. The thing( can't remember what its called) that the pump is sitting on, how did you connect it to the fan? 4. On the top rad-what order are your fittings connected to the mobo side port? and finally: are the triple and dual rotary fitting male to female or what? Again I'm soo sorry I'm new to all of this and i"m trying to get the hang of it..Thank you so much for the help..
No prob. 1) It's a male to male single rotary. 2 & 3) The reservoir is mounted via Bitspower pump top upgrade kit and pump mod kit. It has all the brackets and hardware you need to mount it standing up. I had to use a standalone Bitspower Multi-Z res because it has 3 ports instead of 1 compared to the res that comes with the pump top upgrade kit. The bracket that it mounts the pump/res assembly onto the fan is a UN Designs Z2 120mm bracket with standard M4 radiator screws that came with my radiator. 4) On the top rad, a 15mm male to female extender is installed on the rad, then the tight bend adapter, then the 45° dual rotary. The triple rotaries are a mix of male to female (top GPU fitting) and male to G1/4" end (foreground upper rad port). You can watch Singularity Computers' Dark Matter build on Youtube as this build kinda resembles it.

Yes. 3/4" is the next size up. With compression fittings, keep your tubing the same size (for instance 1/2x5/8 compression fittings, 1/2x5/8 tubing). Going one size smaller doesn't hurt but it's better to stay the same.Edited by joejoe69 - 2/22/13 at 1:13pm
