XSPC Photon D5 or another pump/res combo if not getting the XSPC kit?

Hey all,

I'm putting a Threadripper build together with a custom loop for only the CPU.

I was looking at grabbing a kit and I would grab this one if I were going to.

However, I would like to grab the Heatkiller block and different tubing - maybe hard. I'd probably buy better compression fittings too tbh.

So, my question is more about the pump/res combo. The Photon D5 is meant to be really good and I know a D5 pump is highly recommended.
Are there any other recommendations on top of this one that I should consider?

What size res is considered best for a CPU only loop?
