The components added to the PC in this video were as follows:

Two red Corsair Air Series LED AF120 Quiet Edition fans, which can be found on Amazon.com here: https://amzn.to/2TkEwxw or on Amazon.co.uk here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00F6S10MI/ref=nosim?tag=explainin-21 (affiliate links). Note that any 12V 120mm fans can be used, and that LED lighting is optional, as is having two fans.

Akasa Vegas Magnetic LED Strip Light, which can be found on Amazon.com here: https://amzn.to/2JlZb4B or on Amazon.co.uk here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01IBUG8KQ/ref=nosim?tag=explainin-21 (affiliate links).

I also used a 4-pin Molex fan adapter and a Zalman FANMATE2 fan speed controller, both of which I happened to have lying around. Examples are https://amzn.to/2ug5MTG and https://amzn.to/2Y61zja (affiliate links), but do shop around for the best deal on such components. :)

The support web page for Gigabyte B450M GAMING motherboard (where I downloaded the RGB Fusion app) is at: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/B450M-GAMING-rev-10#support-dl-driver

And the X-Plane 11 flight simulator website at: https://www.x-plane.com Note that there is an excellent demo available!

Finally, please note that all information included above and in this series is offered in good faith on an as is basis, but that I cannot provide a technical support service for your own builds. So please do not e-mail me with any build issues! This said, I will always try to answer questions raised here in the comments. :)
