Does it screw in from the inside of the lid, and if so how do you attach a fitting to the top it (i.e. the top of the res)? It doesn't look like the kind of pipe that has an external portion that accepts a G1/4 fitting, so I'm kind of puzzled.
No....no way for air to escape.
As for replacement top .....
Make sure ya get the extenders for any connections to top side..... EK had a 17mm recessed hole..... Bitspower fitting knurls are 18mm
The 2 holes on flat vertical surface won't need em but any exterior fittings on the top round horizontal surface will. Interior aquatube has no knurl.

-I saw the post where you explained how your drain setup is laid out, but how does it actually work for draining? You've basically got one half of a quick disconnect at the end which holds the water in (until you add the other half), right? So do you have the other half of the compression fitting that you just plug in to open the thing and allow coolant to flow out?
Ok ya saw the parts for the fixed part .... parts list for rest is

-For that top rad fill/bleed setup, do those 30mm extensions and plug stay permanently installed, and if so, does the top mesh panel fit over the top of them when you put it back on? I would think they'd stick out too high.
Nope ... measured it w/ a caliper....fits purrfect....there are shorter extensions if ya worried .... 10mm - 50mm

The determining factor is GFX card length .... if card is less than 10.6, I'd say you good.

Still not entirely sure on how I'm going to route the piping. Couple ideas in my head, but will be a case of playing around and see what looks the cleanest/shortest.
What's in the loop ? Don't See any rads ?
What I did was take out lower 3.5" HD cage and put pump there...... Pump => Lower rad (top inside port) => parallel feed GPU loop => Top Rad (Bot Outsider port) => CPU Top Port => MoBo Bottom Port => Reservor => PumpEdited by JackNaylorPE - 11/23/13 at 7:27am
