Liquid-cooling a computer seems like overkill to some—until they install six GPUs and start overclocking the hell out of them. Because what better way to play GTA V the way it was supposed to be played?
I took a trip over to the overclock forums to see what they had and found a frigging goldmine; turns out there’s an entire water-cooling club. Kind of like a biker gang, but for computers.
Seeing these rigs makes me think back to the 90s when there were all those subcompacts driving around with neon tubing and spoilers with more flair than Richard Simmons. Some of these setups have more coolant than my car, though—and look a hell of a lot nicer. Click on the images to check out more pictures and specs.
This would fit right in with Mr. Freeze’s lab.

That’s dry ice in there. For a computer. DRY ICE.
