A Chance To Win A Reactor Brand Computer

Just a quick update today that some of you might be interested in. There's a contest running to win a Reactor brand computer worth over $6k. These computers use total liquid submersion cooling, so as you can imagine, this would be one hell of a nice setup to have when Diablo 3 & Starcraft 2 come out. Anywho, entering the contest is simple. Just go to the sign-up page and fill in your info and you'll be all set. Wish I could enter myself... I could definitely use a new computer at the moment. I tried submerging my desktop PC in liquid to cool it down and it shorted out all the circuits in my home and started smoking. And here I thought Kool-Aid was good for everything... pfft. Fortunately, the Reactor people know what they're doing when it comes to building a PC for hardcore gamers, so if you're the lucky winner, you won't have to deal with explaining to a tech support guy why your computer is now drenched in Blastin' Berry Cherry Twist Kool-Aid. Good luck to all of you who enter!

    @mockery

    i first saw submerging the computer parts on youtube about a month ago. i couldnt believe it. but...they said to use vegitable oil. cause it was conductive. maybe the kool-aid was water based type. which they said wouldnt work. so that sucks about the power thing. but try vegitable oil lol. that might work. =D

    *goes to sign up for this beast and when he wins is going to send it to mockery*

    I remember seeing something about microchips with water which flowed through them without interfering with the circuitry, at the nano level

    Damn they're awesome and no dust!

    MijnWraak, see if your parents wouldn't mind making an entry for you and/or ask if you can use their information to make the entry.

    Unles you gentlemen follow the rules all of the time, you can always change your birthdate, but don't do it if you feel uncomfortable about it.

    I personally can not see how this computer is equal to or more ten 6grand. I could build this for 3grand at the most. Im guessing your paying some money for the name and case ?
  • #12 Blackwing
    Of course you always pay outrageously more for name, case, and also the fact that they build it and ship it as one whole product not several. God bless Capitalism!
  • #13 wtfomgbbq
    Building it should not cost a lot its mainly the name and case im guessing.
  • #14 mockery
    If you go to their site and try to build a custom one with all the best stuff, you can actually make one that costs just under $13,000. WOW.

    i saw a way to do this with a normal computer. i cant remember all of the stuff you needed. but basically was a computer in a fish tank filled with vegitable oil. lol. but this is a much nicer....mobile computer. lol.

    honestly, this is a crappy computer. my pc is like twice that, and its air/liquid. i have 3 PCs just like the one im on, 7 fan with rubber/plastic gel cool. i built each one for 1.5k..... 2 graphics cards in each, quad core processors, 16 gigs ram.... this PC aint that good.

    You need NON-conductive synthetic or mineral oil. Vegetable oil goes bad and is conductive as far as I know.

    Im guessing its only DDr2 ram then? I know 4gb ddr3 ranges 200-400$ 6gb is 250-400$ and I haven't seen 8gb ram so...

    Interesting computer...I saw it in my Maximum PC a while back...I agree is a bit expensive, but hell if I can enter and win one for free; why not. Add to the one I'm building.
