Popular Mechanics' Liquid-Cooled Muscle PC Desk

The folks at [[xref:|Popular Mechanics|6 Steps to Mod Overkill: The Quad-Core, 1-kW, Liquid-Cooled Desk]] teamed up with [[xref:|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.
