I'm not sure I could call $4000 mainstream.

For an immersion cooled system it is.

Absolutely beautiful design too. It is so elegant I could cry. Moreover shouldn't be that hard to fill the thing with Fluorinert instead of oil. Don't know why they didn't just use some beefy heatsinks for the CPU, NB and GPU instead of blocks, though.

I was confused by that also, i presume its just a matter of not over heat one specific area of the bath.

Shouldn't matter --convection should take care of that. Just look at the Armari XPC (a Fluorinert-immersed PC; features in Custom PC and on Hexus).

Convection can only work so quickly though, no? Only other thing I can think of that dumping the pre-cooled oil straight from the rad gives better performance.

i also believe they want to "target" the heat-spots with the rad-cooled oil. i can't think of any other useful explanation.

I adore this concept. I'd rather mod it myself from scratch than buy a premade system though, just for the luxury of choosing hardware. I suspect it'd be cheaper too. Wouldn't look as pretty, mind...

But is it Silent? Being able to have the Top end system (including multiple high end gfx cards) and stress test it to it's max, While being silent. That would be what impress's me. Above anything else, i think this is the way to achieve that.

^^^ Love your av. Don't go on holiday much then, do you?

I gather it is pretty quiet. Silent requires a passive-cooled radiator, which I suspect would be the size of a table...

The article said it's not silent, but it's not loud either. There's still a few fans cooling the radiator, and the externally mounted laptop drives. The blocks are to target the hot spots, like alecamused said.

My god, that's very very cool.


I must say, I'd love to build something like that.

non-modular hardware?
sad panda.

oh, wait, it's just custom blocks? oh, that's fine; assuming the company is sufficiently large then you'd hope they'd be selling those at a fairly low margin to consumers who are upgrading.
