Popular Mechanics' Liquid-Cooled Muscle PC Desk
The folks at [[xref:http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/how_to/4318067.html?page=1|Popular Mechanics|6 Steps to Mod Overkill: The Quad-Core, 1-kW, Liquid-Cooled Desk]] teamed up with [[xref:http://www.dangerden.com/Printed-Coverage/popular-mechanics-article.html|Danger Den|Popular Mechanics Article]] to create the ultimate desk mod for the June 2009 issue of Popular Mechanics.
This desktop is all about muscle. It sports a 3.0Ghz Intel Quad Core 2 processor; two 300GB, 10,000-rpm hard drives; a PaLit GeForce GTX 280 graphics card; a custom-made, flush-mounted touchpad from Synaptics, and a Blu-ray drive that ejects up from the desktop surface. Seven fans keep this monster from overheating, and Popular Mechanics threw in 13 neon lights to illuminate the desk. Photo:
