I have it set with top exhausting as well, using medium speed fans with a high speed/high cfm fan out back pulling air in.
I will cut out a part of the bottom of the case to allow airflow for the 240 rad

so no one in this whole section can design a loop for this build?

Not going to draw it out for you, it is your loop. I would go Res > Pump > 240 rad > GPU2 > GPU1 > CPU > 360rad.

The water is only going to be 1-2°C warmer after going through both GPUs, so no need to worry about that.

That is a good, if expensive, product. I would use the PMP-450, not the -450S unless you have a 24V power supply. The 450S is the 24V version of the 450; it runs on 12V too with the option to boost the performance by going to 24V, however it is actually weaker than the 450 at 12V.

The spin res is good, however with really high flow you can develop problems with bubbles being drawn into the loop. A small bit of aquarium sponge should solve that problem if it arises.

Pretty much. Throw in some biocide like a silver kill coil or some PT Nuke and you are sorted.

Primochill does good tubing. 1/2" x 3/4" is good, so is 3/8" x 5/8". There is very little to no performance difference between the two tubing sizes. I would avoid the thinner wall tubing (3/8" x 1/2" or 1/2" x 5/8") as they are more prone to kinking.

Fittings. Either barbs and clamps or compression. Aesthetics and cost really, they are both as secure as each other when installed properly.

(did I pick out good gpu and cpu blocks?)
If EK get it right with the EN plating (which they should) then yes. I am waiting to see what happens long term with their blocks but they should be fine.

This. The type of pumps we use (centripetal) are great at pushing water but poor at sucking water. You actually want the level of the water in your res to be above the height of your pump inlet so that the water naturally flows into the pump.

I think most of us can, but it is your loop. Have a go and see what you come up with.
