Mounting the pump/res was the hardest to solve. The P3 lacks the case size to mount it like the P5, right between the rad and motherboard. The included pump mount is for the Thermaltake pump/res combo and there are no adapters to mount the D5 in a similar fashion.
So my solution used two "brackets" that came with the XSPC kit to mount the Rad to a case. There is a mounting slot to the right of the rad that I attached these brackets to, then to the pump/res. At first I really didn't like the solution, but with push/pull on the rad it became an almost prefect solution per functionality. Aesthetically not so much but I'm ok with that.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
