Nice and clean
If I was going to add something, it would be a second pair of fans on the lower rad. . . . . . and maybe go to a taller res tube.
As something to watch for and be thinking about;
I could not tell for sure from the pic, but you want to make very sure that you have the tube that goes down inside the res screwed in under the top fitting from the CPU block, and that you keep the coolant level well above the outlet of that tube.
The reason is that gravity is working against you. . . .
The line from the top rad to the CPU block, and the tube from the CPU block to the res, are going to want to drain down into the res and you'll be left with air pockets in your tubing and CPU block at every start up.
The internal tube in the res is what prevents that as long as there's little air space and the tube outlets below the coolant level, . . . . . a taller res would be a bit more fail safe.
