Like, how am I supposed to connect the tubes to them? I'm having a really hard time learning all of this stuff so some help would really be appreciated. Thanks.

You keep recommending parallel flow but you didn't ask what pump he has,kind of vital info to make that decision.
Btw,the pic you have posted is serial flow.......
I'm going to be using this res/pump. I would really like to be able to do something like this:
Would that require me to use two pumps? I plan on using an external 480mm monsta rad, a top 360mm ST30 rad, and a bottom 240mm monsta rad so I'm pretty sure cooling won't be a problem. I just like the look of that setup. It's very clean looking. I still have so much to learn, but that is why I'm asking questions. Thanks for your help.
