Ah, OK, I see it now - this is actually 1 segment out of four. Do you use it?
Your pump looks a bit strange hanging over the PSU. Why not get rid of that cage, put you SSD on velcro somewhere and have a good, solid place for pump?
With this amount of fittings you can route the tubing as well. Just an idea...

Ya I have a SSD in there and this is just a temp setup until I get my second 780 and add in another Rad and block my cards!
