What kind of fulcrum are you using to make your bend, what thickness is your tubing and what is your tubing made from?

CPU Ryzen 5800x, Mobo MSI Meg ACE X570, GPU ASUS 6800 TUF, Ram Corsair Vengeance 32gb 3200 mhz, Case Corsair 7000D, Cooling Custom Loop Primarily Corsair Hydro X, Corsair k95, Corsair Dark Core RGB SE, LG OLED48C1

No I tried it on a small piece and it got absorbed into the tube

 

Put a little tape to mark the spot? Maybe pinstripe or painters tape?

I will try to measure it as corsair fulcrum Got measurements so by that I might bend it at right spot .if I fail I might try painting tape as normal tape would melt

Can you not just do a single bend per piece? That way it doesn't matter as long as you keep them long enough to trim at either end.

The issue is got atleast 3 bends per piece and some how I fucked up the middle bend twice . And there is no watercooling accessories in my country so I do ship it from US or UK. So adding extendors or 90 degree fitting is out of the question now

Can you route the tubes for easier or fewer bends?

Nah that's the easiest.  Only 2 could  be changed to take out 2 bends but the rest is the only way it be connected.
