  2. Custom water cooling. Its in a whole other league than AIOs.
  3. A year ago the prototype of the IceGiant ProSiphon impressed us with it's cooling performance, but does the much smaller retail unit keep up?

  4. Linus got distracted by a horse so the videos been delayed a bit
  5. A single 120mm AIO probably won't get you much better performance than the stock cooler. I can't see it working super well without doing it for dirty and having a larger rad hanging out of the case, or a NH-D15 with the side panel open
  6. You can but it's not the easiest computer to open one handed. On a desk while steady one handed is no problem, on you lap or whatever you won't be able to.
  7. Side panels are 6061 Al 1/8", tube is 1020 Steel, 1" diameter 1/16" thick. Some of the chips are just stuck to the protective coating on the back. They'll come right out when its time to paint. Have enough money to fund a project this insane/stupid. Here or just in this thread.
  8. We meticulously planned the placement of every component in the Pyramid PC to make sure it all would fit. It would really suck if someone released the largest and most powerful graphics card ever halfway through the build...

  9. It's "Sexy Sexy" by Stephane Michel Huguenin. Not sure you'll be able to find it anywhere except APM Music (service we use to get songs for videos).
  10. We want to build some water cooled PCs with the RTX 3090, but just how small of a radiator can we use and still have reasonable temps?

  12. Soon. Had to redesign a bunch of stuff after the 3090 announcement because it's huge and wouldn't fit.
