I would like to know if that cooler master WC thingy takes up only 2 bays or if it takes up 3 bays. It looks cool BTW.

Here's a pic of the original item:

And, of course, it opened up:
My idea is to remove the built in pump, and simply use it as a res. Why bother spending 20 bucks on a res, and another 15-20 on a flowmeter when I already have them? Just remove the old 400lph pump, throw in a piece of tubing to connect the backing to the res, and viola!
I'll be using a Swiftech 655 (not to be mounted in here, obviously) and swap out the hoses to 1/2id 5/8 od tygon for higher flow. I'm using a rad I already have, and I'm changing all of the barbs (even on the GTZ) to 1/2 silver barbs.
My question is: Should I run tubing straight in? or, should I just remove the pump and the 2 hoses and mount a single hose in between the backing and the res? Either solution will allow me to close it back up, I just think using the barb on the backing will allow me a little more flexibility in modifying the setup later.
Well, am I insane? or... does this look interesting, at least? Any constructive criticism would be appreciated.
