Saturday build with my nephew

I have built this PC together with my nephew. The goal was an aesthetically pleasing, clean loop without compromising on function. Accordingly, we went without a popular distro plate and used a Heatkiller Reservoir. We also did without the vertical GPU stand with the wobbly riser cable, but we stabilized the heavy GPU block with the anti-sag-bracket from Lian-Li. The key feature is the infinitiy-mirror on the bottom of the case. When turned off, it acts as a normal mirror. When switched on it contributes to the lighting and gives the building an interesting depth. RGB lighting is a challenge. RAM, motherboard, reservoir and GPU block use 12v, non-addressable LEDs and are synchronized by the motherboard software (MSI Dragon Center). The infinity-mirror as well as the LED strips in the case frame use addressable LED strips and are controlled by the Aquacomputer Farbwerk 360 via the Aquasuite software. The 6 fans are controlled according to water temperature by the Aquacomputer Quadro via Aquasuite, there are 2 water temperature sensors installed. Altogether the PC is almost inaudibly quiet during operation.
