Default Watercooling Mock-up for build

Hey guys, I am having a little trouble sorting out exactly how i want to set my rig up. I have made a crappy mock in Paint and a list of fittings I think I will buy. all are compression and 1\2 tubing. First an image of the interior. I already have the rads in place and my second pump is on its way. I already have all the blocks as well.


And this is the image of the mock-up. even color coded. red is the CPU loop and black is the GPU loop. The fitting list is as follows.
Pumps:

2 Right angle
2 Straight

Rad 1:
2 Straight

Rad 2:
2 Straight

CPU:
2 Rotary

Res 2:
1 rotary
1 straight

Res 1:
1 straight
1 right angle

GPU:
4 extenders
4 right angle


So. my question and or query. Do you think the fittings will work well like this? can I improve this without loosing the dual loop? and will the extenders attached to the right angle fittings work for the SLI solution?

I am planning on using 2 280's with D-Tek Fuzion GFX2's and the CI7 on a Apogee GTZ.

Res 1 can't empty into the gpu blocks, it has to go to the pump first. Only problem I see.

loose the right angle fittings they kill flow go with 45's

IMHO use 2 "Y" fittings on the SLI set-up going parrelle

He's suggesting splitting the flow between the cards, rather than flowing through one card then the other.

I will not do that, if for what ever reason, water start to flow more i one card than the other, you are dead .

Thats why I automatically did the card to card loop, not splitting it. But if there is a benefit to it, I will consider. altho. the cards are being cooled by a big rad so.
