    Case

    Was browseing that looks nice spite the pricetag and lack of power from the PSU and cant see room for too many hd's but the idea is great would be nice to see more cases setup like this.

    It's a nice idea, but for that price, you could put together a SERIOUS watercooling kit in a nice case, which could be near silent and cool a LOT better.

    And why do you need to cool RAM? Heatspreaders are aesthetic only f.y.i.

    Yea water cooling is obviously much more preferred price wise there especially the new fanless zalman one but yea idea's there now if someone could make a nice looking case and drop the price some.

    Heatspreaders in some cases actually trap heat, but RAM can benefit from active cooling when you start putting more than 3.3v through it ;)

    Umm...what? :eyebrow:

    I'd rather go for one of those HUSH PCs which can take a p4. They look soooo much nicer and smaller.

    That case is already pretty redundant from what ive read. For a start, it's claimed not to support any of the latest gfx cards.
    Nice idea tho, and should prompt some interesting 'plagiarised' ideas from rival companies....

    More technological overkill from Zalman - god bless their clever little souls :D

    *do you think they'll EVER get round to releasing anything reasonably priced?*

    I think that counts as more than 3.3v, don't you? Showoff :rolleyes: ;) :D
