See picture below:

long story short, I upgraded to 680 with EK block, has no top entrance for the tube like my previous block, i want to change out my current 1/2 id 3/4 od which is very inflexible and will get thinner tubing and will need new fittings, can anyone see through the pictures below what the best fittings / tubing for me, and suggest any angled / rotary / compression fittings they think might make this easy/clean?

I would get 90 degree adapters. It will add some resistance but so will smaller tubing, but probably more than the tubing. If you pump is good enough and you have the money, the fittings will look a lot nicer imo.

90 degree fittings:

There are different options and colors of course.

You could also have the pump go right into the GPU block first, the temp difference will be negligible after a few minutes, biggest difference would be 1c. After a couple minutes, the water temp evens out throughout the loop.

and how would you configure each ? and what tubing size would you rec?

also if you notice my cpu block cannot fit 2 compression fittings side by side, it only has enough room for a barb. any advice on that?

I meant the fittings should be used on your GPU block. As for the tubing, the thicker the tubing, the better flow you will have. If you go thinner, there is a bit more resistance but like you said, it can maneuver better.
