Resident evil - umbrella corps

I wanted to revive my very first gaming PC that I got when I was 11. I wanted it to look cool and I really love resident evil so I decided to make a theme after that. I went with a different case than the original since that was fully closed and it was to small for water cooling which is also something I wanted to try. This is also my first time trying custom water cooling which I don't dare to do on my new PC out of fear of breaking it. I went with soft tubing due to ease of it. I pretty much chopped up the case by opening the top to allow for the radiator to be mounted. I originally planed to do that up front since it had two fan slots there but it didn't fit since the front panel connections would go through the second fan. I made a panel with the umbrella logo and also some LED's behind it. I chose for a reservoir outside the case since the old hardware doesn't really look good and since I really wanted to be able to see the virus.
I went with off brand watercooling components since I couldn't find any hardware that supported the LGA 775 socket. I bought the parts from various chinese shops but I ended up using an EK branded pump since the chinese ones don't work. I also filled it with EK clear cryofuel because I feared corrosion and algae growth.

I made a customised windows 7 on this PC to have resident evil sound effects for all actions. Originally it came with windows vista but I changed it to XP because I didn't like it back then. For usage now I also added an SSD with windows 7 so it could even be used to play games like the first assassins creed, resident evil HD, resident evil 0, left 4 dead and left 4 dead 2.

A lot of the hardware in here isn't listed so here is a list of all parts:
