Water cooling help

I a couple months before I start building I wanna make sure everything's compatible, so I have a few questions:

Are my radiators enough? My ambient temps range about 40-45c and I will be having 2x 480mm rads.

Are my tubings/fittings compatible? I'm worried about mixing metals. Not sure if they're all the same metal. Since all my blocks and radiators SHOULD be copper, do my compression fittings have to be copper? The 380i says it's copper plated with nickel, so i'm not sure if that's copper.

Is my pump good?

The silver tubing that i picked out is ugly. I'm thinking of getting green ones.

Edit: 4/23/2014 Changed waterblock from 380i to apogee xl

Current list

Tubing: Primoflex LRT green Link

Radiators: 2x xspc rx 480mm v3 Linkl

Cpu block: koolance 380i Link

Compression fittings: 1/2 x 3/4 inch Linkl

Pump: Swiftech mcp655 Link

gpu Waterblock: Apogee XL [URL=http://www.swiftech.com/ApogeeXL.aspxLink[/URL]

You may want to think about using 1/2" ID tubing and fittings. 3/8" is pretty small.

Cool, do u have any recommendations? I'm thinking of having a red glowy resevoir, blue gpu block, and glowy green tubes. @_@ It will be exquisite.

Ok i changed to 1/2 x 3/4 inch tubings and added a bunch of compression fittings also some angled ones, too.

I'm also looking for a thicker 480mm radiator because I'll still have plenty of room at the bottom of my case even after push/pull
