My System Specs

Default

looks very restrictive for flow.

I see what you mean given the h2o pc's I have seen on this site! Looks like a lot of guys use 5/8" or (>) whereby I am using 3/8". The 58 is very big IMO and also IMO unecessary. I feel that the water should not flow too quick because then there is not enough time in the radiator to cool off! OR?

I hope I'm wrong and guy will stick here First European, eh? Welcome to the forum.
I just noticed this post... I used SEO optimization, why not! Don't you guys want other people to read the boards?
I searched many different forums before I applied here. I am a long-time pc-builder and as long as you guys keep me stimulated I will be around!

Stuff like that is completely unnecessary. It targets the hobbyist who doesn't care about performance (no improvement on that side of things) or aesthetics (cluttering up a build with a bunch of random wires never makes it look better).

I don't think you'll find many of those here.
I think their components look good, and for all the wires that they add, it wouldn't add that much for wire management challenges.

I'm using a boreas 12 right now that is controlled by software- I think that as long as the default is MAX power for fans, pumps, etc, in the event of a software failure (like it is with the boreas), it's nothing to worry about- but that is key.

The idea that water can flow too fast only comes into play with much higher flow-rates than usually seen in computer cooling systems. Below 1GPM, temperatures start increasing dramitcally. Temperatures get a significant drop until about 1.5GPM to 2.0GPM depending on the waterblock, and then continue to get lower even up to 4GPM. Though, to get a speed of 4GPM one would likely have to use a pump with a significant heat dump, but 1.5 - 2 can be gotten fairly easily using standard pumps and components.

Here is the graph showing this:
