I would make sure that the Tubes from the CPU AIO Cooler are Not Touching the Graphics Card's Back Plate.

Just turn the radiator around and you should be fine.

Because the Back Plate Gets Very Hot.

It's fine if your hoses get cooked, brittle, crack, and leak. Just answer the relevant questions. Everything is fine.

If I were you, I would ask your AIO manufacturer what material those hoses are made of and for what temperature they are rated for extended periods of time prior to saying that "it's fine". The backplate can easily get up to 70c and substantially higher depending on the situation. VRM heat makes lots of PCB and backplate heat and that is completely independent of the GPU's core temperature and not cooled by your hybrid's water cooler. The primary method of cooling the VRM is the PCB and thus indirectly the backplate.

For example, a rubber hose is typically rated for up to 82c. The backplate can reach 82c. A 82c backplate touching a rubber hose will damage the hose and cause it to degrade. Even a backplate at 70c will slowly degrade, at an unnaturally accelerated pace, a hose rated for 82c; will make it brittle, and will reduce its lifetime.

It will be fine, stop worrying about the tubes

With that attitude, you are going to have a tough time here. Push rope.

The materials they use for AIO is typically rated for 150C including the nylon braiding. AIO makers are perfectly well aware of the temperatures, and 82C (come on at least make a legitimate complaint) is within the normal operating range. Surely they are not so incompetent as to use materials that would fail under normal use. I understand the concern, but it's overblown and as I recall  there is liquid in the hose,  and I have never ever heard of an AIO hose failing in this matter, ever.  I've mentioned this before, I'm not the most friendly dude on the planet, but a couple of you need an attitude adjustment, you just drove someone else off the forum because? Yeah...I did not think it was a good reason either....
