looks like you just have to reroute or shorten a few tubes and you would be fine.

Hoses are not the problem.

The problem was the Coolance video card block. It has the hose attachments sticking way out to the side (like a hum on a camel's back). If they would have put the hose attachements somewhere in the middle of the block using 90 degree angles it would have been perfect.

Final solution was to completely remove the 480MM fan from the side (on top of the large radiator). I found it was not neccessary. The small 120MM fan at th rear of the case draws enough air through the side radiator to do the job. More quiet as well.
