Ice Cool Inferno

My first water cooled PC build.
I wanted something that was not too box like, looked interesting, but was not outrageous.
The case attracts the casual observer's eyes, with its angles and smooth curves, framing the internals, while not immediately identifying it as a PC.
The subtle coloured lights bring out the components, without shouting. The white fluid is simple and practical, focusing the eyes on the shape and form of the tubing. Even the contrasting black and white sleeved cabling keeps the build calm and understated.
While running, even near max output, it is effortless and quiet, barely a whisper above the background.
But most importantly, in a house intolerant of technology, it is still allowed to live next to the TV in our living room!!
