so after a steep learning curve and wasting 4 brass tubes at $20 each i finally got it done, still have some tweaks to do with my return line as i dont really like it but it is functional for the moment. 
One thing i forgot to do at first was clean these tube inside really good before running fluid though it, which resulted in a creamy red color, after draining and cleaning the hazy stuff out the color stayed good. 
 the other thing that was somewhat of a issue was the top vrm heatsink, it is a little taller on the left than on the right which was pushing the tube out at a angle which then after a 10mm extender i had to reroute my layout. all in all it came out good and my temps are amazing now, at a much lower noise level.
Parts used are as follows:
cpu block - swiftech apogee SKF Heirloom
Radiator - EK PE 360
Reservoir - Heatkiller tube 100 D5
Pump - swiftech D5 pwm
fittings - Alphacool HT series
Tubing - Alphacool black chrome brass tubes ( bent using the Imperial tool 370-FH bender )
Coolant - EK cryofuel concentrate in blood red with Distilled water
Fans - Corsair ML120 pro ( quite possibly the best high pressure fans ever )
Inline temp sensors - Alphacool Eizapfen inline temp sensor x2
 
updated pic of the new lines.

    Very nice build, love the looks of the rigid tubing. 
     
    Did you have to anneal the brass before bending.

    No. Used the imperial bender 370-fh to bend them. Works great with 13mm OD tubing

    and the saga continues, getting rid of the HDD cage and making a new bottom shroud and custom HDD cage that will sit under it.

    WOW, man quite a great looking build. Love the tubing and the wiring, so clean looking. That was a great question ferguson asked, had never thought of that. Awesome looking!!!! I have the parts for a hardline build, been waiting to do that. +1 for you. :)

    If your doing brass be careful on size, I tried some 10/12 ( bit power ) but the walls are a bit to thin to bend without kinking with the bender I used. I used alphacool tubes that are 10/13 and while it takes some force, you can bend them with a bender. I'm doing another one using copper tube that I'm going send out to be played after I bend them.

    I've been thinking about doing a hardline build using copper lines for a while now. After seeing this build I'm seriously considering going this route instead, great work!

    copper would be cheaper than brass with more flexibility, the alphacool tubes only come in a few sizes so if you have a longer multi bend run you may have to use fittings (and they are pricey), which takes away from the clean lines of the tubes. if you do copper get the 1/2 OD tubing, i found it in different lengths, from 2ft up to 10ft sticks. use the imperial tools bender 370-fh, it runs around $50 but well worth it. the alphacool HT fittings work perfect on it as well as brass, im playing around with some copper on another system and getting a quote from a plater on having them plated or powder coated.  
    i have to upload the newest pics, i redid my return line to get rid of the double swivel at the top and added the LED to the heatkiller reservoir as well as straightened out my feed to the cpu block. still debating on if i want to stick to a aircooled gpu ( kingpin or FTW 3) or do a founders edition on water. not really digging the gpu blocks, since i flipped my gpu up the block has to look good and be full cover.

    some updated pics, i re did my return line, got my feed line straight and added the LED to the res. i also made a HDD holder from aluminum sheet that would allow me to rotate the drives, they over hang the bottom exhaust fan, and remade the bottom cover, not real happy with it since the aluminum i have pretty thin and im looking at other options, but it does clean up the inside nicely.

    That looks like Corsair's Link APP.

    Very possible. Corsair Link is very good.

    Yep, corsair link. I use a commander pro for all fans except the radiator fans, they are on speedfan, the rest i can adjust the curve to things like the samsung 960 temps. Also the temperature probe headers on it are 10k ohm so they work with inline temp sensors.
