While it isn't mentioned, I checked out the pictures. It's in the picture of all the hardware, directly under the barbs / above the fans on the left so no worries there mate!

Awesome. I'm still going to have to buy 4 of them though since I'm adding two GPU blocks.

I can't find the black one on FrozenCPU's site...
Nevermind.

You've got two choices there, spend the $4 on the clips, or just get a pack of 100 cable ties for that $4, and then you've got your cable management looked after (Make sure to get good ones though!).

If you're doing SLI / Xfire, you should take a look at the metal G1/4 to G1/4 fittings they have, rather then use hose. Since I'm using PCI-E slot 1+2, I ordered one. I figure the $12 they were was worth it to save on the cutting of a hose, the barbs, the clips, the hassle of fitting it all on and what not.

Is there a way I can make this any cheaper?
Save on the ramsinks and order on Ebay. I picked up 8 copper ones from HongKong for $8shipped. If your memory modules are surrounding the GPU the heatsinks may not fit under the barbs and you'll have to cut of the heatsink fins.

Not too sure what you're talking about...got a linky?

Are there fittings designed specifically for a universal GPU block to connect to each other in a parallel loop over the distance of two PCIe slots?

?

Shiz, you're right. I didn't think about that.

These cable ties?

These are the ones I got

The other thing you may want to look into getting is 40mm extension fittings and 90 degree fittings to help line up the tubing between GPU's See my pic attached. Here is what I spent.

1 ea. Rasa 750 Performance Dual RX240 Complete CPU WaterCooling Kit $174.99
1 ea. Performance Single 120mm Radiator XSPC RX120 $54.99
2 ea. XSPC RASA GPU Universal Waterblock $99.98
4 ea. 40mm Spacer Adapter Male/Female - Silver $45.96
4 ea. G1/4" 90 Degree Rotary IG 1/4" Adapter Extender - Silver $49.16
12 ea. XSPC 7/16 ID 5/8 OD High Flex Tube 1ft - Black $23.88
2 ea. 1/2" ID Tubing - High Flow Barb - Silver $5.38
4 ea. 1/2" ID Tubing - High Flow Barb - Silver $10.76
1 ea. KILL COIL 99.9% Pure Silver Wire 0.57mm - 250mm $4.99

Grand total: $471CDN+tx

I probably could have gotten away without the RX120, figured why the hell not.

I'm wondering what the performance of universal GPU blocks are like with ram sinks myself.. I have a couple side panel fans right on the GPUs, but is that enough to keep the ram cool?

Yes. The RAM sinks are designed to be cooled by incidental airflow.

In the HAF X I'm getting, the front intake fan is enough for those.
