Digital Storm Introduces the HydroLux Liquid Cooling System

Digital Storm today unveiled HydroLux, a complete desktop cooling solution that combines liquid and airflow cooling with fully customizable control software. Available exclusively on Digital Storm desktops, HydroLux monitors and automatically
adjusts to temperature fluctuations in in real-time, marking a giant leap in the evolution of PC cooling.

"We work hard to differentiate the Digital Storm brand by engineering powerful systems that meet our customer's high-performance demands," said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm's Director of Product Development. "HydroLux delivers on that promise by providing an industry leading cooling solution that can be fully customized to meet each user's unique needs."

The HydroLux's proprietary Control Center software provides enthusiasts with complete control of the cooling system and chassis. This includes detailed temperature graphs, thermal linked LED lighting (pictured below) and automated airflow optimization.

With the click of a button, HydroLux can transform chassis LED lighting into a powerful tool for monitoring system temperatures. As both internal system and fluid temperatures rise, HydroLux visually displays the fluctuations by fading LED lighting from a cool blue to a warm red. To help enthusiasts know when they have pushed their system to new heights, chassis lighting switches to red every time a maximum temperature recording is exceeded.

Users can choose from quiet or extreme airflow profiles depending on preference levels, or allow HydroLux to automatically make those determinations and adjustments in auto mode. An array of temperature probes feed the HydroLux control board with real-time data, which is then used to modify fan zones accordingly, striking the optimal balance between thermals and system noise.

HydroLux employs large high-flow pumps to move as much as 300 gallons of cooling fluid per hour, increasing heat dissipation and improving overall system stability. The advanced cooling system also features strategically placed quick disconnect valves for easy service and to simplify system upgrades.

The HydroLux Liquid Cooling System is immediately available on all Digital Storm Desktops, including the recently released award-winning Aventum II.

This is going to cost quite a lot of money, not to mention taking the fun out of building a loop yourself.

$921 at the very least. From the Digital Storm system configurator:

Not everyone enjoys building a PC. I'd compare it to building a car or buying one new/used.

I like how in the picture the massive case is plopped down in front of the monitor.

Yes that much is true. However, if you are going to use watercooling it means you will be overclocking your computer quite heavily, usually to the edge. System integrators will hardly do this (most of the time they will be overclocking to an achievable amount), removing the need for watercooling. After all, you will still need to take care of the loop (changing coolant, etc) which means you will need to get your hands dirty regardless.
