but the max temp rating for the tubing does not correlate with the processor temp. the water itself will never get to 74c...if it did, that would mean your processor would have to be so hot that nothing could record the temp because your system would have shut down to protect itself.

Yeah, the water isn't 60C just because your CPU is 60C, it doesn't work that way. Think of boiling water on a stove. Just because the heat source may be 200F doesn't mean the water will instantly be 200F. In a water loop the radiator cools the water before it raises the water temperature too much. Basically the only way to hit the "max temp" for that tubing is if you literally tried to burn it.
