      @VoidStorm if you just let it melt it has to go through probably 3 layers of cardboard and into the case which I highly doubt would happen

    The "Cryochamber" isnt a new concept, Thermaltake had their Core WP100/200 series about 5-6 years ago which was the same concept of seperating watercooling in a seperate chassis they called a Pedestal. In that design it was below the main chassis and extracted out the sides, so you could still have cooling fans on the Top.

    7:20 "I've never seen anything like this" ... Yeah well... External radiators was the shizzle back in the day and this is literally the same thing, they just glued it on top of the chassis. Looks cool though. :D

    My idea for taking it out faster would be to attack the sides from the top. So large attacks from the top of the ice, but only in the parts not directly over the box, then once you have an opening you use the crowbar to remove the rest.

    Probably already been said. But now encase a PC tower in a block of ice with zero fans(Or with fans. Who knows) and cables for power, monitor, and the power switch sticking out in order turn it on and then see how cool it stays. >_>

  • Justin Valentin

    I’ve always liked the old Mac Pros for their ‘wind tunnel’ designs that separately cool the CPU and RAM, the storage drives and GPU and other PCIe cards, and the PSU. It feels fresh to see compartmentalization have another iteration in the form of this; I’d definitely buy a case like this if I planned to use water cooling.

    Solid front panel with small channels on the side always results in poor air flow. Combined with no top exhaust and a single rear exhaust, that RTX card is going to cook.

    • TJ Parks
      TJ Parks

      I was just thinking about that as well... It would've been better to have another exhaust fan on the top, and instead of 3 on the front just have 2. That's how my PC is atm, and the temperature is really nice, even more so considering the fact that my room is like an oven sometimes

    You know the inside of the main case is completely choked off from fresh air, right? Which is not going to play nice with most GPUs. Unless you can depend on air coming in through the PCIe covers /s. It's a failure of a case.

    I wouldl ove to see some benchmarks on the cooling. It looks very well but factory thermal past is always bad and maybe other parts, such as the pump, aren't that great as well. if all the parts are up to par, it seems like HP did a great job. If it doesn't compare to the top AIO liquid coolers on the market, then why buy it...

    • AyySørento
      AyySørento

      @Floppa In a way, you kind of can't... The best way is to make sure the GPU is mounted high enough to make sure the fans can do their job and far enough from the front that the air can travel up instead of down. With the only fan being in the back, more air is probably going into the computer than it can exhaust. This is an example with more exhaust fans could help the GPU.

      @AyySørento on the topic of the gpu hot air pocket, how do you prevent one?

      Austin Evans is Trash Evans, My content is better!

    • AyySørento
      AyySørento

      @Ninja Asylum Probably. The front doesn't seem to have a large enough opening for intake and a single exhaust fan in the back probably can't export the hot air out fast enough. Probably a hot pocket of hair under the GPU as well. Not saying the front has to be fully mesh but bigger openings on the sides would have helped greatly. Having fans up-top to exhaust air would have been great too but that would have also been against the main purpose of this design. CPU temps are hopefully good but that GPU is probably close (or is) throttling.

    • Ninja Asylum
      Ninja Asylum

      There is no cooling in that case. None whatsoever. It has zero airflow.

And the cooling on these pc's no matter which version is AWFUL. so are the parts except the gpu and cpu. the motherboard is the lowest supported line you can get and any "m.2 ssd" is basicly a normal ssd or even a high end hdd in some cases. I would'nt reccomend the HP omen pc's to my worst enemys. DON'T BUY IT
