I narrowed it down to Tygon/Norprene or PETG. I thinking ill give PETG a shot? Not sure what fittings are best or good value and the are $3-30 each so seems like big spread. Also what tools are recommended. I have a heat gun and pipe cutters but not silicone tube inserts etc that are specific. 
 
Parts ordered 
Thermaltake Core P8 Case
Thermaltake P5-DP-D5 Distro plate and Pump  
EVGA Kingpin Hydro Copper Kit 
Heatkiller IV Basic CPU block
EK CE 420mm Radiator (medium)
XSPC RX360 (thiccc) 
 
Likely will order MP5 works backplate cooler
 
Need to cool a 5800X I might change to a Zen 3D Ryzen 7 or 9 later I'm not sure
Also need to cool a 3090 Kingpin
 
Currently using a EVGA CLC 240MM and the Kingpin Hybrid 360MM in Lian Li Lancool II Mesh and temps are decent but could be better and the case is getting cramped. I can use some the parts to upgrade other systems. 
 
Thanks

    Hi Greg,
     
    If you did end up going with Tygon Norprene - how did it work out so far?

    Thank you.
     
    Is this the size you went with?
    3/8" ID x 5/8" OD x 1/8" Wall Tygon® A-60-G Industrial Grade Tubing
     
    Nothing too tight or too lose with fittings?

    I went with that size, I think I used all bitspower 16mm fittings with 90 rotaries as needed or to look better under some of them.
