I want the visuals of the custom loop but with the ease of an AIO, as such the Raijintek looks to tick all boxes. Maybe this will also force Corsair and others to do likewise. I know some have adapted current AIOs to use clear tubing and coloured coolant, but that is taking things in to your own hands and as an inexperienced water-cooler, it is more than I think is sensible for me to do.

an eye catching steam-punk theme

You can define steampunk in many ways (Stick a cog on it !) but not like this.
(I don't think it's diesel punk either, but it's closer to that than steam-punk).
