Predator compatible means it comes with quick disconnects and prefilled, similar to the Predator GPU blocks wher eit is just attach the block to the GPU and connect it to the loop
 
it can not be done that way, because predator comes with CPU block and can be expanded with GPU block.
this monoblock includes the CPU block - it is just a larger one that covers VRM as well. so it's a replacement, not expansion.

You know, now that im actually reading what you wrote it makes 100% sense!

I've been looking at these monoblocks for a while and wondering why they are not prefilled with quick disconnects and completely forgetting that the predator already comes with the CPU block attached.

So the only solution is to sell the radiator with quick disconnects prefilled and the CPU blocks separate, prefilled to give customers more option to mix and match.
 
^ it will make it unnecessarily complicated, ugly and more expensive.
Liquid cooling is a niche and full cover blocks for MB is a niche of a niche. There is no much market for those things.
So a potential buyer will have no problem to get the parts of this loop separately, assemble it (with less ugly tubing) and fill it with coolant of his choice.
