Yeah...I had one and one of the pipes burst sending water throughout my whole computer box. Oh, talking about electrocution! I was stuck to the keyboard and my wife had to tackle me to get me away from the computer. I was rushed to the emergency room and though I did not die...the burn scars still show all the way up my arms! Okay...that didn't really happen but wouldn't it be quite a story?:)

Yea water cooled systems are nice. I was going to add that to my system. But they are can be expensive , loud and the danger of frying the system is always on your mind ...so i decided to just go with a bunch of fans

Actually there not loud at all. Alot quiter than fans, real quite! My next upgrade is going to be a cooler for my CPU and chipset. Ive been looking into it for some times now. And there reall not to high priced,you can get a full unit for around 150 to 300 depending on if you want your hard drives and vid card cooled to. Right now tho Im putting together a 24/7 server so Ill be adding the water cooler later on in the year.

BUt I think its a bit of an overkill. I mean, I just dont like hoses and crap running all over the place in my setup. Also, the hard drive water coolers are too much. Unless you are running a whopping 15,000 RPM or something. It just seems like to much for me, though the price is nice.

Ever seen the 'old' Cray's cooling system? Blood Plasma! No kidding. If I find a link I'll post it.

Didn't find a photo but here is a link with an ecerpt,
http://www.ed-thelen...ample-tour.html
You have to scroll down and thsi is what you will find:

Have a look at this machine here, the red and black one. This is a Cray-2, it came out in 1985. This costs $19 million (nineteen million dollars). And the neat thing about this was immersion cooled. So he is no longer using freon, he is actually dunking all this circuitry into this fluid - fluorinert - here is a jug of it. It weighs 44 pounds when to is full so it is a very dense fluid. fluorinert is a really weird fluid - it is used in surgery - in operating rooms as a > blood plasma substitute.< If the surgeon can't type your blood in time and you are going down, he will pump you full of this to keep your blood pressure up because it has very good oxygen carrying capacity. Also it is non-conductive so that makes it pretty unique to - there are not a lot of non-conductive fluids around.

This is the best I could come up with:
http://www.cray.com/.../h_systems.html

The Cray Site does not show any internal photos of the machines, but I do know for a fact that the plasma ran through the circuitry which was mostly placed on the bottom of the structure. The only one I have ever seen with my own eyes was stripped down in maintenance, located in a government laboratory, and studied by MIT fellows. When word leaked to me of its properties I just had to see it for myself. At the time I think I was one of maybe only 100 people with access to the area. Even then I was sneaked-in for a quick look. The only computer I had ever seen before that was old NEC mainframes and custom made beta machines and parts that NARPA would have drooled over.

We are getting closer...

PC Magazine reviewed some nice desktops but this one stands out. It is the SYS Cold-Fusion 1866 SE and is cooled by freon. Here is a nice photo of the interior.

Why don't they just put the **** thing in a cryogenic vault, and do their PCing from there?

this might be considered spamming, but look at some alternatives i seem to have run across lately on cooling solutions!

Look!


the AMD cpu coolers are pretty wild, but i think that it will actually work...also make a note and check out the video card solution as well!
