3. Upper Rad Hose to the IM
4. Bypass hose
5. Water Pump Inlet Pipe - oring there likes to deteroriate. This one is either obvious or need a paper towel next to it wick the liquid. Sometimes only seen seconds after shutdown b/c of back pressure.

Always look for remnants of dried up crystals

These are basic checks that don't require removing parts.
I would also add the timing chain cover gasket to that list. Mine was leaking badly.
