Peltier cooled PC for gamers is geek nirvana

Digital Storm Outs Awesome Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled Gaming PC
 
 

If you are a PC gamer that takes their hobby very seriously or if you are an overclocker, you know that air-cooling is far from the best method to keep your gaming hardware running cool. If you start to overclock your hardware much you will find the machine gets unstable in short notice thanks to the heat generated for faster clock speeds causing instability.

The key to getting the most out of your hardware is to get the most out of your cooling system. Typically, most enthusiasts will simply stop at liquid cooling, which is much more efficient than air-cooling. However, some users are more hard core and go to more complex systems to deliver sub zero temperatures to their CPU like phase change or even liquid hydrogen. The catch is that these methods are expensive, bulky, and can be dangerous.

There is a third way to get temperatures that are below freezing typically directly on your CPU or other hardware that many people don’t know about called peltier cooling. This uses a thin plate and electricity to create temperatures below freezing with some science and general cool tech. This sort of cooling system is rare though and I have never seen it offered on a factory gaming PC before until now.

Digital Storm has unveiled an awesome new gaming rig called the Sub-Zero Liquid chilled System. The system uses a peltier cooler to drop the temperature of the liquid circulating in the traditional liquid cooled closed circuit with a radiator. According to Digital Storm, the cooling system will deliver temperatures below 0C directly to the CPU at idle. That liquid will heat up when the machine is running full tilt, but it is still much cooler than a plain liquid cooled computer.

The gaming rig with the special cooling system starts at $3,899 and can be fitted with an Intel-980X CPU and tons of other options that will drive the price way up from that starting point. This is a badass gaming machine with a cooling system that will allow for some serious overclocking, Digital Storm can clock that i7-980X to 4.6GHz for you.

“The R&D conducted on this liquid chilled system has been the most labor intensive, but rewarding initiatives ever attempted by our engineers,” commented Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s Director of Product Development. “With constant innovation happening in the hardware space, the demands on our engineers to design systems that optimize these components are unyielding. The Hailstorm gaming computer with the new Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled System fully maximizes the potential for each component like no other system we’ve ever built.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
