Anyone here running one? I'm considering building one just because.
Just look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers.

    I have never heard of one. It sounds like it would work pretty good though.

    They are nice looking equipment. Some have dye in the water and with lighting, look pretty cool.

    I miss the good old days of building a box from the chassis up. Last one I did about ten years ago, overclocked by about 1000mhz, but it only lasted about five years before it kicked.

    Quite a few early, large mainframe computers had water cooling, including, I think, the Cray.

    Myself, I always was suspicious of mixing water and electronics.

    I worked on a lot of water cooled computer equipment while in the Navy. I am typing this on a phone with many times the processing power and memory.

    Funniest thing we had was a thermal printer rated for a nuclear blast. We always wondered who would be around to print anything and if they were around what the hell they would want to print.
