    Re: Cooler Master shows off huge $100,000 water-cooled PC

    Am I missing the point with Inception? It just appears to be 12 PC's mounted on the same mount with PSU/Water cooling components off to one corner... Therefore its not really a 'PC' - closer to a server rack!

    So this "PC" happens to have 12 individual systems, 12 power supplies, 12 reservoirs.... Hexus now in the realm of click-bait article names.

    Next time i visit an computer retailer ill make sure i add up the value of all the equipment on display, i can see the headline now "PC World shows off £200,000 system"

    "Cooler Master shows off huge $100,000 of sponsor donated stock across 12 separate systems"

    Well, they could be clustered, which would be a considerably more interesting technically detail rather than "lashings of RGB" and it would give a reason for watercoolling rather than just doing it for the sake of it.

    Otherwise it just seems to be a marketing gimmick designed to fool technically illiterate journalists - so I'm surprised to see HEXUS falling for it - unless there really is more to it than a photo opportunity.

    But otherwise it seems like a broken pencil - pointless.

    "Perhaps more interesting are prototype designs for the MasterCase SL600M with chimney based heat regulation"

    Case manufacturer has "heat rises" epiphany.

    Agreed, but I'm guessing because Hexus doesn't want to upset Cooler Master.. Need those exclusives huh!
