[VB] Digital Storm launches a monstrous HydroLux cooling system for gamer PCs

The system combines liquid and air cooling, a control board and a bevy of sensors, along with custom software that puts you in command of your PC's thermals. High-flow pumps will push over 300 gallons of cooling fluid across the CPU and graphics cards every hour, which is augmented by an airflow system that can adjust dynamically, operate quietly or act as a wind tunnel. As a nice touch, you'll also find LED lighting throughout the rig that serves as a quick visual indicator of the heat levels within your PC.

Oh, yes for those wondering the price.

It's $1,100 for single GPU cooling and $2,000 for quad cooling.

It's their software that is the leap in cooling, yes?

So I don't understand, are they selling a complete PC or just a kit that has all the cooling components you will need? And if it's the latter, how do they know what kind of hardware you have so they give you the proper pieces?

Maybe I'm thinking about this the wrong way.. heh.

The HydroLux is a new upgrade that's exclusive to custom PCs from Digital Storm, and it's available immediately across the company's desktop lineup. You'll pay $1,084 for single graphics card setups, on up to $1,994 for monsters that rock four GPU cards.

Its part of their computers.

This is just the cooling setup.

Meh 300 gallons per hour is 5 gallons per minute. A D5 pump can do about 4.5GPM at full speed. If you put two of them in, you'll probably be able to sustain a higher flow rate through more components.

If you feel like monstrously overpaying for something you can do yourself - Go for it.

Alienware 2.0...

At least it's pretty.
