Because there might be stuff in your blocks. Water also has the ability to erode surfaces it comes in contact with.

I am lazy... 2 times a year I can maybe live with. Also... I have it in my head now that if there is enough build up that pieces could get loose and clog up a water block or foul up a pump. I may be extreme in my line of thought but hey, better to be safe than sorry. This is an investment to me.
The only thing that will be a pain will cutting and replacing the tube..but well if u want it run fresh everytime change the water and change where the water is running..clean the rad and water block but on tube and water are replaceable items..to be a bit more cleaner system..go run balck or white tube and run the system for a year..hehehe..

I was thinking... I have my rad mounted on the back of my case, blowing air towards the back of the case. If I get a video card with a blower-style fan that ports air out the back, will the cooling performance of the video card suffer because of all the air blowing against where its trying to port out?

No, but it will heat the rad. My cards are aimed at a wall which is about oh 4-6 inches from the back of the case and they still run a decent 75-80C at %100 load, however the heat outside the case... well... it's VERY warm. I'd say it's a localized 90F behind the case. I also have my exhaust going out the back. It heats my room if I game for more than a few minutes.

So by aiming cards at a rad, you will heat the rad.

Shouldn't because the video card pulls in to the cooler from the inside if the case. Thats why good case intake/exhaust is needed. My HAF 922 was set up exactly like that and I never noticed any temp difference while playing Mass Effect 2... and I checked thinking along those same lines you are.

OK cool, yeah so far to avoid conflict with the rad, I have my intake fan in the front and exhaust fan out the side panel. Hopefully the video card exhaust won't heat the rad too much, there's about 4 - 5 inches of clearance between the case and rad and the Yates push a lot of air back there.

Side panels are better suited for intakes. They shoot that air almost straight towards the video card fan intake. by any chance, does your case have fans on top? If so, that's where your exhaust should be.

Normally... NORMALLY... front & side fans are intakes. Top and rear fans are exhausts.

Yeah I would rather have side panel as intake but my case has no top fans. I put the side panel as exhaust because I didn't want all the hot air trying to exit through the PSU.

You have a bottom fan by any chance that you can use as intake? Those will normally shoot right into the GPU cooler.
