Alright got a revision closing in to final revision if someone would like to double check it and give me feedback it would be much appreciated.

Part list:
Swifttech Apogee HD white acetal top
2x EK 580gtx+ full cover blocks nickel acetal
magicool 560 rad 3x180
swifttech micro res
laing ddc 3.25 pump
EK SLI link in parallel
3 45 degree 3/8ID 1/2OD compression fittings
3 45 degree 3/8ID 1/2OD compression
2 straight compression fittings
1 male to male g 1/4" rotary extender (res to pump)
1 bitspower L block
pearl white 3/8id 1/2od primoflex tubing
2 male koolance QDC VL3M compression
2 female koolance QDC VL3M compression
Silver Kill coil
distilled water

Revision log:

moved to 3/8id 1/2od tubing from 1/2id tubing as fitting availability favors it and I think 1/2id may look too bulky.

Added QDC to my plan

Made best use of angled compression fittings instead of adapters and straight fittings.

plan to mount the res ontop the pump with a male-male rotary extender

Looks good. Also have you considered 7/16ID 5/8 OD tubing? It's not as fat but still has about the same flow as 1/2ID. It's not as common and may not have the colour you want, but worth taking a look at.

3/8ID 1/2OD kind of sucks. Tubing that has a wall thickness of 1/16" kinks really easily.

My idea is to try to have no bend in my tubing at all, just all straight lines using angled adapters.
