  • Why the masks? You don't think you're at a far higher risk of dying in an electric shock or fire here than of 99.995% survival rate for your age group according to CDC data? And that's without hardly any treatments like Ivermecting or Remdesivir which improve your odds up to 85%. Also Linus takes off the mask contaminating the space in which Alex then enters, and aerosolized saliva can float indoors for hours! Nothing makes sense here.

  • Yeah this looks pretty janky for pro hardware, And i dont see the point of this huge thing. EKWB there industrial water solutions will probably just fit in a case and not be a hassle. And if you have to mod your case, it should not be on the support list.

  • This is GLORIOUS! The only problem is that most cases for some inane reason barely have enough space on the back side for wire management let alone a massive cpu heat sync. I really wish case designers added another inch of width for wire management.

  • You're 15 years late to the trend. People were already doing liquid nitrogen heatsink cooling back then.

  • refrigerant and air conditioning compressor would perform wonders with cooling. Imagine the overclocking capabilities.

    Jacob BarnesJacob Barnes10 napja
  • What if you were to create a cuboid case around the computer, completely filled with water? Run the heatsink for the CPU/GPU to the bottom, and the hotter water will naturally flow to the top, circulating the water passively. Plus, zero chance for dust.

  • Ummm... I think maybe someone needs to do some testing (again) on the effects of EM on cognitive function. Between the 3 favorite tech channels (my favorites anyway), Steve at GN seems to be the least drawn to insane tech solutions and experiments, although that might be due to the hair. Linus and Jay (jayztwocents) seem more prone to extreme case mods and an unnatural fascination with water and ice with regards to PC play. Seriously, cool board and fun experiment... uh oh, crazy idea... Aquariums need water heaters to regulate temps for the fish (fresh water tropicals anyway)... a glass cutter, some silicon sealant... ok, crazy ideas are spreading... time for my own check-up. Cya... 🤣

P.S. I know how other coolers works so please don't reply with "do you even know... have you ever heard of "
