Hardcore Computer’s Reactor

Some of you may need to pull your mind out of the gutter when you hear the word “hardcore”, but Hardcore Computer is a custom designer and manufacturer of high-performance computer systems.

Hardcore Computer’s newest product, the Reactor, is quite unique as all of the heat producing components, such as the CPU, motherboard, video card, memory and power supplies, are immersed in a custom dielectric fluid called Core Coolant. This gives the Reactor a cool look of a fish tank that is like no other.

So besides the Core Coolant, what else is inside the Reactor? How about a choice of Core 2 Extreme processors, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and an option of up to three GeForce GTX 280 GPUs.

Other features include optional, dual, and diversity Wi-Fi antennas. a CMOS battery and BIOS reset switch, full-throttle processing, HD/3D realism, Creative Labs X-Fi, and a 7.1 channel Dolby digital surround sound.

Yes, the Reactor should be probably popular with the gamers, as well as anyone who needs a lot of memory to run their business. Supposedly, upgrades are easy, despite the fluid immersion of the major components. Careful it doesn’t leak out, now.

The price of the Hardcore Reactor is quite high at $4,500, and some of higher-end models will fall a little under $10K.
