Mirage - An Illusion PC Build

When I was wanting to create a PC, I wanted something unique that would stand out from most modern PC builds nowadays. The typical RGB lights, liquid cooling, and etc. I wanted to create something that would make people's heads turn when they saw it. So, I started searching online for a unique PC case that I would put all the parts in. After a lot of searching, I came across one from a company called Computer Upgrade King (CUK) called Continuum which had an infinity mirror in the front of the case. I knew once I saw it that I wanted to create an illusion-like build. So, that is what I did.

CPU: AMD FX-8350 (4.0 GHz)

Motherboard: MSI 990 FXA Gaming Motherboard

GPU: MSI RX 570 Gaming X (4 GB)

Case: Computer Upgrade King (CUK) Continuum

It is not able to be seen clearly, but the CPU cooler, the Cooler Master Master Air MA610P, has a light mode called mirage which creates the illusion that the fans are moving slowly when they, of course, are not. The fan mode is what inspired me to give the name of the PC. I hope all of you like it as much as I do.
