    Impressive! And the insides look amazing. Hope it's got a side window to show it off.

    I wonder if the cooling system is as quiet as watercooling?

    Just been on their website, the $6500 is before you configure it to how you want it, my dream pc spec bumped up the price to a healthy $20,262!

    Guess I'm gonna have to wait for that lottery win lol

    The use of TECs mainly server a purpose of upping the power consumption... And with three GTX580's, too low wattage should be the least of their worries :)

    Oh well, if I were rich and stoopid enough to shell that money on a PC, my main two requirements would be for the system to have some fancy TECs and it to be capable of playing CoD:BO trailer full screen :D

    Surely below room temperature is impossible without some sort of water chiller.

    Won't condensation be a problem too?

    You say "the liquid cooling system, which doesn't feature a pump"

    They say "an integrated reservoir pump system" source

    Just thought I'd point this out.

    ***edit*** floating around on their site a bit, it's perfectly possible that the integrated res/pump is referring to the xspc bay res that's used in a couple of their other builds. But that doesn't change the fact they'll have a pump in there somewhere.

    Looking at the images of the hailstorm on their site I'd guess the pump is mounted in the 5.25" bays, something like an EK dual DDC tucked in there.

    ***edit#2*** If you choose to customise the system then you can see the pumps in the "stage 1-6" section of their "digital storm engineering lab" are (for the totally over the top one) dual DDC's in a dual pump top I don't recognise.

    To be fair, the person you laugh at will likely cackle in your face out of the window of their Ferrari.
