Glass is nothing more than a fad for the extreme enthusiasts, it has no place in day to day in the trenches water cooling, it's dangerous and very difficult to work with.

PETG is easy to bend and cut but doesn't have the clarity of acrylic. Acrylic is still the go to hard tubing for experienced hard tubers.

Honestly your putting together a Frankenstein loop with the parts you listed and are just asking for trouble in getting it all to work together correctly. As mentioned above start with a kit to get you going and then as you get more experienced and comfortable move to hard tubing.

Absolutely no point in using hard tubing if this is your first build. Choose a kit and start with that.

Currently i have AIO's on my CPU and GPU, the only reason im convinced to do a custom loop is the hard tubing. I love the look of it.

And so do I, but believe me, if this is your first custom loop, do NOT go for hard tubing. Do a build or 2 with soft tubing and then move up.

You can still start with a kit and get the components in place with soft tubing, then while your custom loop is up and running you can start planning your hard tube runs and gather the necessary extra fittings and such. There is more planning in a custom loop with hard tubing than actual work, you don't just buy a bunch of glass and fittings, hacksaw it to death, and VIOLIA!, have a custom hard tube loop. All the pictures on google may make it look easy, but its a lot more work than it looks, however the end result can be phenomemal as long as you practice good judgement in learning from the ground up.

That's great. Too bad you aren't talking about using acrylic.
