Radiator and Pump and Gravity and Bleeding

I'm new to liquid cooling and I'm wondering if the radiator must really be above the pump?
And I think I've been researching too much and now I'm sort of confused about bleeding..

Most people who have my case (Silverstone Raven RV-01) put the radiator vertically outside on the left, but I think that is very ugly, so I really want to mount it down there.. Rad/fan sizings are wrong because I just changed my decision to use this rad:

Here is my rough plan on how the placement and flow will be:

Please let me know if this is still possible! Thanks :)

it is possible but its best if the cold liquid from the radiator goes to the cpu first then the gpu then in the reserve.

Best solution

thats the best article ;) 
just be careful when assembling how your flow will be there is usually a in and out marked on the reserve connect the out to the radiator and then from the radiator to the cpu so you can have the best cooling possible then to the gpu and in to the reserve again :)
