 Different types  of Fittings
Because it is my first time to build a computer with water cooling I  have browsed around and looked a lot. I decided to try Hardtubing. Especially because I think it is more beautiful and gives straight and fine lines. I am a big fan of trying to plan all my things in advance. So I draw up the basic layout and did the first design of the water loop in Fusion360. The Define s2 chassis will need some mods in order to fit the rads. The front will have a mesh grill so the XE 360 Can have a good air intake and The side panel will also need to have a cut-out in order to mount the SE 240 on the side.
Here is a render of the loop. about 90% complete.
 I have started to mount everything and to test how it will look in real life:
