Default First time liquid cooled PC build

Hello all...

I'm building my first gaming PC in over 15 years and this is my first time trying a custom liquid cooled loop, but I'm struggling with trying to figure out the best way to run my pipes... I ended up having to put the front radiator on with the ports at the bottom because there was not enough head-room in the case with the top-mounted radiator... this has resulting in an challenging layout, so I wanted to ask for people's advice on my initial plan and see if there's a better way to tackle this...

Here is my current plan for routing (please see attached photos for reference):

Pump Outlet -> Front Radiator Port - Bottom Left
Front Radiator Port - Bottom Right -> GPU Port - Right
GPU Port - Left -> Top Radiator Port - Right
Top Radiator Port Left -> CPU Port - Right
CPU Port - Left -> Pump Inlet - Top

I've never shaped hard-tubing before but I've watched a bunch of videos so I'm hoping I'll be able to shape things correctly...

Any thoughts?

So yes, your way of doing it would be good.

I used 90-degrees fittings also 90-degree rotary fittings, did know I can't bend nor have the patience to nor have the time for.

On the CPU inlet, there's a Rotary 90-degree fitting as well as a 15mm extender on the inlet for the Pump/Reservoir.
