Fake Watercooling Rig for Aesthetics?

My inspiration for this is the GreenHorn Dragon build, and the watercooling in the back looks so nice, it reminds me of a aventum x pc from digitalstorm.

So my idea, without spending 300$+, i can fake a watercooling look by having a reservoir and petg tubing with ek coolant flowing through the back without actually being attached to anything. Would that be possible?

It should work just fine. I don't see how it could be a problem. :)

Thank you.

If you have any idea, is there any other way of containing the water thats around $50?

You can just get a hose/tube and fill it with water and seal it tight. You don't really need a reservoir, unless you want it to be part of your (fake) water loop.

what should I seal it with, like a valve fitting or something?

Yeah. A ball valve connector with a plug (just for safe measures) would be fine. But really, anything that works is good. You can DIY something for yourself.

I'm not that experienced with this, but I'm sure in a hardware store they can tell you all about what sort of sealing they have in store for tubes.
