Hope Lantern

This is Hope Lantern, a custom loop mod I've been working on for almost a year.

To help understand, the water-cooled PC is in the bottom of a large Ikea glass vase modified, then turned upside down, with a large glass globe on top.

The space between the Ikea vase and the globe then becomes a huge reservoir with the perfect shape to give an incredible visual effect on the surface between the water, and the oil.

The blue module in the middle of the vase contains:
- 2 round radiator over 80 years old
- 2 pumps
- 1 fan 230mm
- 1 power supply 750w
- 2 car heaters from the 1930s

Everything is on a rotating base with an ARGB light ring that illuminates all this beautiful and fragile glass!
