Hardcore Computer Launches Reactor
Rochester, Minnesota (October 21, 2008) Hardcore Computer, Inc., the industry's most innovative computer design and manufacturing company, announced the launch of Reactor, the world's first commercially available high-performance PC with total liquid submersion cooling technology.
Developed for hardcore computer users such as gamers, graphic artists, audiophiles, industrial designers, engineers, medical imaging technicians and military technologists, Reactor was designed for performance and quality with patented technologies and innovations never before available in a desktop system.
Hardcore Computer, Inc. submerged all of the heat-producing components - the CPU, motherboard, video card, memory and power supplies - in a custom dielectric fluid they have named Core Coolant, eliminating heat-related computing limitations. Reactor incorporates the benefits of liquid submersion cooling with twin additive and redundant server-class 650Watt power supplies; audiophile-quality Creative Labs X-Fi, EAX, 7.1-channel Dolby® digital surround sound embedded on the motherboard; three on-board SATA solid-state drives configured in an ultra-fast RAID 0 array; and two truly hot-swappable external hard drives.
Form following function, Reactor has a distinctive look. Locating the majority of I/O on the top of the case for easy access resulted in the unique Spinal Cord cable management system, another industry first for a desktop system. Also on the case top are optional, dual, diversity Wi-Fi antennas. The system chassis incorporates handles that serve as a means for transporting Reactor. The handles also aid in the removal of the system core, which includes all of the computer's active components, from the liquid for maintenance or upgrades. Over-clocking enthusiasts will appreciate a CMOS battery and BIOS reset switch located on the lid, inside a push-push access hatch door. Reactor also sports user-selectable internal tank and chassis base lights.
The result is a cool and quiet state-of-the-art system that provides full-throttle processing, sustained over-clocking, HD/3D realism with maximum frame rates, an easily upgradable modular design and a rugged custom chassis. The liquid submersion technology also ensures stable, 24/7/365 hardware reliability.
"Based on market research and early adopter feedback, we're certain that anyone that requires or demands a system with fast boot and application loads, reliability, cool and quiet operation and over-the-top benchmarks will appreciate the innovations that Hardcore Computer put into Reactor," said Al Berning, CEO, Hardcore Computer, Inc. "We have taken a quantum leap in computing technology by offering features never before seen in a desktop system."
