Should I run the pump as an inline pump or as a submersible one? I plan on using a reservoir anyway so that isn't really a problem. Anyway goes for me so I want to know what to do best. Another question is: If I use the pump as an inline pump would it require any cooling or can I put it safely in a closed (And I do mean really closed) box? If it needs some cooling would one 80 mm fan and a duct be enough?

I'm sure most of you have intelligent answers, I'm looking forward reading them. (I'll check them out tomorrow as I am very tired right now).

TIA, Quaky
Since you're going to be running a resevoir anyway, you might as well stick it in there. That way you have more room in your case.

If you didn't put it in there, though, you shouldn't have to have any additional cooling for it...at least, I don't for my 1046.
