Home theaters are not good places for PCs—the big complaint with home theater PCs (HTPC) has been their noisy cooling fans on their processors and graphics cards. Now CoolIT Systems makes liquid cooling more accessible with its Home Theater PC Cooler, a self-contained system specifically designed to easily drop into a media center PC.
The maintenance-free system fits into the space normally reserved for a couple of three-inch cooling fans, replacing them with a radiator and tubes that carry cooling liquid around the CPU and graphics processor.
Pricing and availability weren't announced yet, but other CoolIT cooling systems cost around $300 on the street. Expect to see this liquid cooling concept—long a favorite of overclockers everywhere—to become more mainstream soon.
