quick few questions for you veterans, need to determine a good pump size for my setup. By size I mean, flow rate. I'm running 1gpu and i5 2500k with 280mm radiator. Are the resevoir/pump combo's a joke? I imagine the pump gets warm running for a while and ends up directly heating your res?

looking at :

would love to see some good 5.25 bay combos. I have a spare bay.

any other solid suggestions within $30ish of that price?

The combos are not necessarily bad. Most folks that don't like them stay away for two reasons:
1) they are using a bigger pump or an incompatible pump
2) fear of leaks. Most of the bay reservoirs have a window sealed by an O-ring.

How the pump cools itself depends on the type of pump. Some of the bigger pumps like the D5 (Koolance 450) are cooled by the water they pump. These shouldn't be dumping that much heat into your system regardless of pump size.

Martins Liquid Labs website has a good pump size calculator based on how many pumps you want, how many fittings you have, number and size of radiators, number of water blocks, length and diameter of tubing...
