I can't really see the pics too well, since I am posting from a mobile device. I can say that to the best of my knowledge, pump position doesn't matter too much, as long as it is fed by the res, and is before the rad, and doesn't cause any kinks in the tubing. That pump looks to be a D5/MCP655, so I think you have about 10ft. worth of head pressure. I think you should be fine, regardless of where you put the pump. The best thing is to keep your tubing runs as short as possible.

#Laughs# the rads were a big pile of junk next to the case.

same pump as yours to give you some idea of the power that thing has.

Edit: think I was using at least two pumps with the other triple rad in that pic.
