Ugh, I don't know. Acrylic is not that easy to work with and I honestly wouldn't recommend it for the first go around. It's daunting when you first start off and can be off putting when you screw up your first bends, not to mention the measuring involved. Looking back on the difficulty level I'd give soft tubing a 3 and hardline an 8 out of 10. Even getting sli cards lined up while using hardline was a total pain in the butt. It doesn't flex...at all! So if you have some tight spaces between the intake and output on the cards not only are you trying to mount this preassembled mass into your case lining everything up in the slots but you also have hardline tubing connected to it (in my case at least) that you have to line up as well.
The looks of it can't be beat though and for some no plasticizer issues. Too bad I have external radiators
