Full immersion cooling system for desktops released

Hardcore Computer, the U.S. based system maker, says it has launched its Reactor line of premium systems, complete with a full-immersion cooling desktop system.

The system purportedly based on LGA775 motherboards and featuring Nvidia’s Nforce 790i Ultra chipset even allows triple SLI, dissipating heat with special heatsinks to disperse the heat into a coolant, then cooled with a radiator.

The 'dielectric cooling liquid' is completely non-conductive and can even be made up of liquids like soybean oil. The liquid fills a contained space which includes the circuit boards and a pump. The pump pushes the hot fluid through a heat exchanger after which the liquid flows down a cooling path, only to re-enter the closed space again.

The circuit apparently takes only 30 seconds and apparently works so much better than regular air that heavy overclocking can be pre-applied.

Hardcore Computer claims it designed the entire system from the ground up, including the patented coolant, and aims to sell Reactors at around US$4000 - US$5000. The systems will apparently be available internationally and users will be able to buy them with Core 2 Quad QX9770 processors clocked at 4.2GHz.
