My OCD is kicking in again with the tube routing, I think you should use the motherboard watercooling block and rout it like so in order to have no crossed tubes and cleaner runs
please excuse the cruidity of my drawing
Ps that SLI connector rocks did it come with the 780's?
No, I had to purchase the SLI connector seperately from EVGA.
Also, I tried routing it that way first, but I didn't like how it put alot of stress on the tubing... which is why I ended up switching it to this way. I'll keep playing around with it.
And I don't plan on using the motherboard block since it's aluminum
(even if ASUS says it's quadruple anodized)
Also, I can't use the fillport on my reservoir as an inlet port, so that wouldn't work either...

Agreed, I tried not crossing them first, but didn't like how they were fitting, and didn't want to waste my 45 degree angle compression fittings because I need them elsewhere.

I am debatmg in staying with 3/4 fittings or going 3/8.
Everything looks and fits great. I'm using 1/2" x 3/4" Bitspower compression fittings. Haven't run into any clearance issues yet anywhere in my build... it's ultimately going to be your call.
