Need help selection parts for water cooling

hello everyone, i am currently switching pc cases and along with the swap i want to add a GPU cooling block into my loop along with an upgrade from soft to hard tubing.

my parts relevant to this are an Asus GTX 1080 strix and the water cooling components are everything included in the EK-KIT X360
kit parts :
-universal CPU water block EK-Supremacy EVO ,
-water pump: EK-DDC 3.2 PWM Elite Edition,
-radiator: EK-CoolStream XE 360 (Triple),
-reservoir: EK-RES X3 150

My main problem is finding a GPU block that doesn't cover the liquid but that is also compatible with my card.. along with getting the best (most durable and least likely to bleed any chemicals into loop) hard tubing type and making sure everything fits/ is compatible.
in this picture ill show you what i mean (this is a GPU block that covers the liquid and is one that i would not like to buy)

this is one that i like and want to buy but is not compatible

additional information: the new case is the thermaltake core p5 tempered glass edition

ideally if someone knows which tubing is the best and knows which fittings i would have to buy along with where i could buy the GPU block im looking for, that would help me tremendously

thank you to anyone who took some time to try and help!

PS if anyone knows whether or not theres a GPU block that is compatible with the asus gtx 1080 strix and the 1080 ti strix that would be the best block for me!
