    Okay that title sounds a bit weird, but is right. ID Cooling is releasing the Stream series open frame chassis. The liquid cooling runs actually though the frame itself, which is definitely an interes...

    agree in motorbike too fuel and oil are in frame in some bike.

    My alpha cat would position himself in parallel with the case and shoot...pee wee.

    that some liquid cooling i tell ya.

    Would be cool if they ever built that into a normal PC case, not one like this that just collects the dust.

    I was thinking the same thing. It looks very cool, but then after a couple of months....

    I would like to see more companies do this.... especially with standard cases... not open ones like this.

    Well if you can afford this cooling setup you probably can afford a clean room.:wanker: [​IMG]

    I have a TT Core P5. I know. :bang:

    But the idea and concept of this is actually really good if it can be implemented in closed cases. :thumbup:

    I think there's a couple of good things about this design - it's an interesting look, and by routing the water all around the chassis tubes which are exposed to room temperature then I'm thinking this will also help cool the liquid before it gets to the radiator - so it could be an added performance benefit too.

    Can you give us some examples? As far as I know its not exactly in the frame but just shielded by engine components.

    and it takes, what, all of two minutes to vacuum an open case. how lazy are you guys?? just say'in lol

    Its not just dust. Electromagnetic compliance and shielding is impossible with a case like these. I wont use a case with a window unless its got wires in it or metallic coated glass.

    Aircraft typically store fuel in the wings since its good for packaging. Liquid fueled rockets have even more intricate ducting than any plane though. Regenerative cooling techniques involve circulating cryogenic fuel through the combustion chamber, powerhead, hot gas manifold and turbopump walls, the nozzle, through hundreds of thin tubes.

    Cryogenic liquid hydrogen on one side, 6,000F in the combustion chamber.

    Its never been done because it really has no engineering or cooling advantage. Its more of a decorative thing.

    Yeah, I have a Thermaltake Core P3. In my experience, dust gets in easier but it can also be blown off easier - IMO, it's not a big deal.

    I think a frame filled with liquid will be quite heavy, and they probably tried to minimize the amount of metal so that it isn't completely immovable. Might also make tubing and maintenance easier.
