Shouldn't be any clearance issue if you're using tubing. It's simple bend and turn, there's no kinks. Only issue I had was connecting gpu block to the sb block.

Yeah that's my worry. I know a single gpu setup won't be as difficult as dual gpu. I don't really want to have my bottom rad connected to southbridge with tubes resting on the outside of card frown.gif

JayzTwoCents is currently doing a build log with the Formula, EK waterblocks and dual GPUs which gives a pretty good idea how much room you have and how you should/could route your tubing:

What I did (long tedious process) was use an alphacool 90 bendable fitting from the ek terminal and slowly trimming down the tubing connecting the southbridge. That's the only major issue. Ofcourse the layout and looks varies with case sizes. I'm using a haf x and although it looks big, but after all parts are installed there's barely enough room. 10ft primo tubing ended up using less than 7 (and that's being very generous with my routing.

How does the stock waterblock compare to EK block? Is it possible to turn off the stock fans? Looks amazing! Nice RoG rig!
