    Hello !

    My name is Rafał Dryjer, I am 27 years old and I am from Poland. Maybe my English is pretty weak but I wanted to boast about my last XPC-Table project ...

    The project was made some time ago:

    Now I wanted to do something more, I wanted to set up a laptops with water cooling :) I will not write much, but if you have any questions then say smit I will try to write off everything.

    The stand will look like this:

    I couldn't sit at that desk without being annoyed by the GPU's facing the wrong way so the cross ventilation from the fans isn't blowing through them.

    The laptop will be water cooled in the same way as the ASUS GX800, which is an external water cooler. As for the Laptop - talks are ongoing with sponsors :) There is nothing more about a laptop NO MAY HAVE TO SAY :)

    I watched the video for that Asus GTX 700 water cooled laptop. Doesn't it kind of defeat the purpose of the mobile laptop to attach something that large and bulky? I understand that you don't require it to operate the laptop but is starting to get towards a lan box isnt it ?

    Don't get me wrong I applaud the effort certainly, but it just seems silly for lack of a better word. Kind of like a cell phone with a car battery attached to it. I just see the prototype that was made by multimillion dollar corporation with seemingly endless R&D budgets and I wonder what a single person can do , actually I look forward to what a single person can do. I've seen it before a few times but I've yet to see one that makes "sense"

    Best of luck,I look forward to the outcome

    I understand that the project will be heavy and not handy ... and I will not hit the tastes of everyone. But I feel very curious and I want to do it - because it is something else / unique :)

    Doing it to do it is not a bad thing....thats why mountains are climbed, & why people catch & release fish... just to do it.

    It will be interesting. Ive seen some youtube videos of people fitting desktop AIO's to laptops, even with quick release fittings like the asus one.

    Hello ! The following is the case - I got a message from a certain company. This company is going to make available the P771 DM laptop with GTX 980M 8GB for this project. What do you think about that?

    So yes, you can say that the LC system itself is good - it is located in the middle, though the snakes are already a bit crowded in the interior but it is good: D. There are also connectors which will be used to connect the laptop to the system :)
