Screw on the fittings first, make sure they are tightened. then install it all in the case and start routing tubes.
Make sure all the bends are good and not kinking in any way. If they kink, than you will have to put angle fittings to ease up the bends.
When everything is put together, you can:
A: Unscrew everything and take it all out of the system for filling / leak test.
B: Keep everything in the case, put paper towels under every fitting / connection and do the filling / leak test inside the case.
I used plan B since that is by fare the easiest method. Just let the pump run for a few hours before powering on your system to eliminate any chance of leaks.
Im guessing you already know how to power on the pump WITHOUT having any power to the mobo / CPU / GPUs? If not, do ask
Ill be happy to explain.

Yes, The order is of little importance, only thing is to have reservoir (Edit*)directly in front
of pump so the pump NEVER runs dry.
In your case, with 2xtitan, ppl tend to have; GPU-GPU->Rad-Res/pump so the water going to the res gets cooled a bit before entering the pump / res.
I would only do this if it is possible without destroying the clean look though.
