Well, finally I did not use the heater core. I was gonna paint it with heat resistant black paint and install it in the lower front of the case, after removing the main HDD cage but it seems my temps are way better with the DD radiator, than I thought, so I think there is no need to do this. This way the whole setup looks cleaner and I can have the HDD cage
As for the barb fittings, I only used them on the DD pump - everything else has compression fittings.

Thank you. I couldn't think of any simplier and better looking solution but at least it was my idea, not borrowed from anybody else

Next I tried to sleeve the power supply's main MB cable. Since my PC Power & Cooling is not a modular type, this was a much harder and less rewarding experience, than it would of been with a modular PS. Also, this was the first time for me sleeving cables, so it is far from perfect but still better, than not doing anything with the cables.
I tell you, there was more work with sleeving this cable, than the whole project to date. To label each wire was a slave-job:

Main rig: NZXT Phantom modded case watercooled, Gigabyte GA-P67-UD4-B3, 2500K@4.7Ghz,1.428V, 8GB GSkill Sniper 2133Mhz 11-11-11-30@1.6V,
Gigabyte GTX960, Acer 24" 2ms, 2xOCZ Vertex4 128GB RAID0, Samsung 2TB; PC P&C 750W, Win7 Ultimate 64

Laptop: Dell XPS 1530 (T9500; 4GB 800 RAM; 120GB Crucial SSD; 8600GT; WIN7 64bit)
