Resevoir necessary?

Im thinking of getting a pump, a CPU block and a 240mm radiator. In your opinion do I NEED a resvoir?

Nope, you can use a t-line. But rezs are a lot easyer.

Thats pretty awesome, bit big though lols. Hopefully all this will go inside my stacker830 case. Its enourmous so it should fit in easily.

How would you rate this for just a CPU cooler.

Swifttech Apogee GT

http://www.thecoolingshop.com/produc...oducts_id/2533

Thermaltake AquaBay M3 5.25" Reservoir

http://www.thecoolingshop.com/produc...oducts_id/2162

Laing D4 Pump 12V D4-Basic 1/2

http://www.thecoolingshop.com/produc...oducts_id/2290

2x

Alphacool NexXxoS Xtreme II Rev2

http://www.thecoolingshop.com/produc...oducts_id/2618

Reason for just the CPU, I use a 7950gx2 atm, waterblocks for those, not very cheap at all. So ill wait until i upgrade to a new card. When the G92 comes out in a water cooled form, ill likely buy that or if the ultra black pearl comes down in price Ill get that. Black pearl at £300 would be sweet.

Flow will go:

Resevoir --> Pump --> CPU Block --> Radiator --> Resevoir

Hows all that? Anyone got any suggestions? In UK btw so no american cheap deals

edit: Also basically a few questions.

1. Will this outperform a high end air cooler like the Ultima 90 which i got atm? Otherwise theres no point in getting it all.

2. Does the l/h make much differecne in cooling? Say 100l/h vs 1500l/h? Or is there a certain amount you need and thats it.

3. Can I get decent fluid to put in it which, if it leaks, it wont brake my stuff, Ive heard of it but IDK if its any good or what its called. Would definatly give more piece of mind.
