The cooler your VRAM the better overclock you'll get. Watercooling only the core will do wonders for OCing your gpu but if you don't cool your VRAM, then your VRAM OC will be quite limited, thus limiting the overall OC and performance of your video cards. I suggest you get full cover blocks for your 6950s. It's worth it.

Less kinks I assume, I have 1/2in ID and 3/4 OD and it looks nice

The only reason that I would go with 3/4" exterior over 5/8" is if you're going to use compression fittings. I went with 7/16" ID 5/8" OD Primochill Primoflex tubing so that it's a bit tighter than necessary on the 1/2" ID barbs, but I also added worm-drive clamps on my barbs for extra extra security. I have not had any kinking issues with 7/16" tubing, which I think is the only reason besides fitting on compression fittings to get 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing.

I would love to, unfortunately my cards are non-reference and they don't make full covers for them
