Long story short, unless your cooling blocks specifically say otherwise, you're using G1/4 thread (it's a British measurement, who knows why that's what we chose to work with), so find fittings that have a G1/4 thread and are whatever ID you want your tubing to be. So if you're using 3/4 OD x 5/8 ID then you want G1/4 5/8" fittings.

Not meaning to sound like a jerk, but I personally don't have time to go through all of your items and check to see if they work with each other. Chances are they do, G1/4 is the go to standard for almost all water cooling components. I've given you what you need to know. If you have any other questions, I'm glad to help.
