They review this system in the last Maximum PC issue. From the looks of it it appears to be very well built but due to the layout and fact that the system is sunmerged, any add on parts such as new graphics cards need to be order directly from hardcore as they are propriatery to the system. They compared taking the board out to trying to remove an engine block so I can't imagine it being very user friendly in terms of doing any work inside it. They claimed that the top range system would break the $10,000 mark.

Its very nice to look at but I really can't see this system selling more than a few units.

Niche market , for those who want the 'Oooooooo , ahhhhhh ' effect when people look at their computer.
Which, in essence is why I have Blue LED fan's running through my case

Now, that being said, I doubt I would ever actually have the money for one of these lol!

Meh...

I doubt they'll do very well with this.The entire thing is proprietary , and thats bad.It's also really expensive.

My original thinktank (2004) cost about a grand , and you could put any parts into it.

--------

If you really want to get into submersion cooling , build your own.It's really not that difficult....Alternately you could look into Puget Systems , they sell an 'aquarium kit' for submersion that is quite reasonable....

Yeah, there is no way I'm getting into fully submerged cooling.

Its just cool to see people do, and it has a place in the computer world however small.

Nice build though, very respectable to do.

Saw this on G4TV last month...I especially like the fart noise it makes (not really a fart noise) when you put the tray back in haha!
Neat concept, but still needs to be tweaked as so the price comes down by ...ohh more than 50%.

I'm havin enough trouble building my own....heh

It really is straightforward.If you can build an aquarium (which is really easy ) you can totally build your own custom submersion rig.

Oil submersion cooling has been done for long enough now , the research has been done....
