    One step closer to having The Crystal Dome in my PC.

    It will send all the bits into the dome as gold and silver tickets leading my PC to be in a quantum state for a duration of time dictated by how many crystals I've installed on the mobo.

    This theory is totally sound and will lead to bitcoin mining being trivial. But first I must endure the harmonica man and make some crystals roll down some poorly built wooden ramps.

    Alphacool do some pretty funky kit, usually with very high build quality. I do like their stuff, especially the Helix res.

    However, those LEDs are really bright. I have one of their collars round my own res and you need it at the right height, else it's quite blinding.
    Also, that sphere looks like it'll really restrict where you can install the unit. Not for small cases!
