    Would have been great back in the days when I had 250w Peltier and waterblock on CPU.

    Yes this is amazing. Maybe Peltier is making a comeback.

    I love the idea of this being used for a water cooling setup.

    Have the cooler shaped like a water slide, and have the water being pumped directly onto it and down to the board to trickle off.

    So when the waterproof graphics card coming?

    So a niche product for a niche that will never want it? Nice try. If you were that terrified about splashing water on your build you wouldn't attempt watercooling in the first place (or you'd get an all-in-one Hydro cooler).

    And I suspect the few LN2 benchmarkers would be using Ultra-durable, ROG and Sabertooth boards and other top-tier parts.

    I don't actually care much for the "Waterproof" feature itself. What I'm more excited about is the black-on-yellow colorsceme. It really harkens back to DFI's heyday.

    Nice, but pretty useless w/o periphericals doing the same thing.

    ASRock have been using the black and yellow colour scheme for a good few years now...

    Sure there was a guide on the very original bit-tech site (same vintage as macromans fan controller guides) about conformal coating ur mobo with a £4 spray from maplins to protect it from condensation if you used a peltier, back in the day when water cooling was all aquarium pumps and oil cooler radiators cobbled together, none of this off the shelf kit ;)
