Thank you for the replies Arjy and ChielScape and everyone else who's replied so far. This stuff is pretty expensive and it's nice to have good input before buying.
So here it is (again lol) with the XSPC block.

D-tek Fuzion V2
Swiftech MCP655â„¢ 12 VDC Pump
Wye Fitting - 1/2" - Clear
Swiftech MCRES-Micro Rev 2
Tygon® Silver Antimicrobial Tubing 1/2in. ID 3/4in. OD #AS600038
Black Ice GTX 480 Radiator
XSPC Razor 4870 X2 - Acetal Top
Dangerden FB (Fat Boy) G 1/4 Fittings - 1/2" Barb
1/2" T Line for 1/2" ID Tubing - Black
120mm Quad LED fan - BLUE
Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal Compound


Quick question though, will I have any problems with anything fitting?
Do I need bigger or smaller barbs or tubing or anything?

I'd suggest 3/8 or 7/16 tubing, its a much better fit at no performance loss.

I was connect connect the Y fitting to the pump via tubing so colder water would hit the gpu and cpu at the same time. I thought it would be better rather than the water hitting the cpu block warming up, and then hitting the gpu block. I could then use another Y-fitting to connect to the radiator.

Will that tubing work with my other selected parts?

Running the loop in parallel isn't going to help anything, you're losing flow on whichever block is more restrictive.

Yes 7/16 or 3/8 will both fit over 1/2 barbs creating an excellent seal, and not hurting performance, negating the use of ridiculous clamps, I'm running zip-ties and don't even need them.
