Hardcore Computer is a manufacturer of high-end custom computers. Their latest offering is the Reactor model. The system boasts the current most powerful components, including a Core 2 Extreme processor, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, up to three GeFoce GTX 280 GPUs, Creative Labs X-Fi audio, Wi-Fi antenna options, CMOS battery and BIOS reset switches, and much more. However, what makes this system stand out the most from other custom computer options is the fact that all the heat-producing hardware components are completely immersed in a custom dielectric fluid (Core Coolant). Similar in concept to the fish tank PC touted by Puget Custom Computers, the Reactor indeed houses the CPU, motherboard, video card, memory, and power supplies with the actual fluid. The Hardcore Reactor approach is more advanced, long-lasting, and available to the general public. Hardcore Computer claims this patented technique results in 10x the heat dispensation of the best water or air cooling solutions on the market. Pricing for the Hardcore Reactor starts at $4,500, with components being fully customizable.
