iBUYPOWER Paladin XLC gaming PCs: Core i7-975 and liquid-cooling

iBUYPOWER have announced a new range of gaming PCs, the Paladin XLC series, which use Intel's Core i7 processors, Coolermaster's HAF 932 cases and Asetek's 240mm radiator liquid-cooling.  Despite the high performance - up to a Core i7-975 can be specified - the systems are apparently "virtually noiseless" by virtue of two huge 230mm fans running at just 800rpm.

Edelweiss PC casemod makes Thermaltake look dull

Edelweiss PC casemod makes Thermaltake look dull

Reminding us of Thermaltake's monster Level 10 PC case, this is actually the Edelweiss PC, the handiwork of Pius Geiger and in fact initially constructed all the way back in 2006.  Updated this year with a crisp new white color-scheme, the water-cooled Edelweiss separates out drives, graphics and power-supply, and then illuminates them with a discrete but effective lighting system.

Liquid-Cooled Desk PC mod

Liquid-Cooled Desk PC mod

Desk PC mods are relatively rare, but not unseen, but they generally aim to discretely hide the computer into the furniture.  Popular Mechanics' version, however, puts everything very much on show: a water-cooled Intel quad-core PC sandwiched inside clear acrylic and bolted to a custom aluminum frame.

Steampunk Frankenstein: it’s alive!

Steampunk Frankenstein: it’s alive!

You might remember the Steampunk Frankenstein case mod from last month: an 8ft behemoth of brass, ominous lighting, tricked-out gages and water-cooling.  Creator D.Mattocks has been in touch to let us know the huge PC is now finished, complete with some much-welcome Steampunk tweaking to the drives (which previously were left bare plastic).

$16k Water-Cooled PC with four QuadCore Opterons

Ever wondered what $16,000 worth of custom PC would get you?  Over at Tom's Hardware they've been chatting with Puget Systems, who have recently finished putting together a monster computer costing its buyer in excess of $16k.  The brief was to create a quiet performance machine, with four quad-core Opteron CPUs, 32GB of memory and eight hard-drives in various levels of RAID.

8ft Steampunk Frankenstein Computer case mod

8ft Steampunk Frankenstein Computer case mod

As insane Steampunk PC case mods go, this Frankenstein machine by D. Mattocks will take some beating.  Standing almost eight feet tall, and bristling with copper piping, vintage gauges and glass indicator lights from an old navy ship, it's not so much a computer as a tribute to H.G. Wells, Dr Frankenstein and the sort of coffin Isambard Kingdom Brunel would've probably liked to be buried in.

The vent was salvaged from an old church, and now acts as the air inlet for the water-cooling system.  Meanwhile everything is backlight with green cold-cathode tubes, which manage to make the Frankenstein Computer look even more ominous.  Happily one of the gauges does actually show the computer temperature, though there's probably not a steam blow-off valve.
