-Chemicals: I'm going to assume you mean PT nuke and not coolant or dye
-If you go with barbs, you should probably get ties. I really like compression fittings, but they are more expensive.
-You don't need 2 pumps, honestly you don't even need the rx120. I'm pretty sure you get better performance from a push-pull setup on the 360. Don't forget that flow is your friend, and adding another 120 will affect that.
-Don't forget TIM, although EK blocks come with some (I think I remember mine coming with some)
-Make sure to get extra tube. It's cheap and you will want extra for adjustments etc.
-Make sure to plan your fill and drain points. You might want to consider a quick-disconnect
-You might want to get a top for the pump, they do make a difference.
-I'm not going to addup the fittings myself, but I believe you're short. I could be wrong
-The SLI fitting is NOT required for the block. Check out my sig to see what it looks like. I really like it, but it does decrease your flow rate. It's ONLY for looks. You can get all that later though...
-I don't know about tests on the 580, but EK beats out DD for the 4xx blocks

I think you're going to go dual loop? Bad idea. Single loop gets better performance than dual loop. Also, go with 1/2" ID tubing...you get a bit better flow rate, but in the end it's all about the same. 1/2" does look better IMO (and I've heard people who go with small regret the choice based solely on looks)

Ah sweet. I was going to run both the pumps together and have a single loop. res > 360 rad > GPU (sli when the times ready) > CPU > 120 rad > res. Price isn't really an issue should I just get the compression fittings? I figured ill use 2 45s for the 360, 2 for the CPU water block, 2 for the GPU, 2 strait for the 120 and 2 strait for the res. I was thinking of replacing the two 200 fans on top with three fans to match the rad fans to do a push/pull kinda deal but I wasn't sure if that would work seeming how the fans wont be flush on the rad on top. I'll also go with EK GPU block.

O and yes I will be using no dye. I think it looks sweet but I've seen what it does. I'd rather go with colored tubing.
