Stays nice and cool though. And very quiet. Only thing I hear is the pump.
You know what might be good at that pinchpoint is a little bit of internal anti-kink spring, you know, the kind that coils up within the hose. Maybe about 2-3" or so. You'd never have to worry about the hose collapsing while you're asleep then, it's a surefire cure.

BTW, what didja pay for the blocks? I think the next upgrade for me is what you've done, but with a second water loop and pump. I've got the NB in the same loop as the CPU; I think that's enough heat load for one loop. I have an extra one lying around someplace.
