PC Specialist launches custom liquid cooling at Multiplay i49

Arguably the biggest local brand in PC manufacturing, PC Specialist ships thousands of systems in a month, but – up to now – there has been something missing from the company’s line-up.
.
No longer. KitGuru gets up close and personal with the new PCS cooling solution.

Anyone whose lead a DEA raid will know that continuous fire on the GAU-19 (left, below) generates some serious heat.
.
As a result, most manufacturers will recommend that continuous fire weapons are actually fire in bursts.

Fine if you’re raiding off the Mexican Coast, but in a serious PC gaming fire fight, the last thing you want to do is take your fingers off the triggers for fear that something will overheat.

Enter liquid cooling for PC Specialist at Multiplay i49.

Serious firepower generates serious heat. The key to success is keeping your cool in the heat of battle. Enter the PC Specialist Proto A
Serious firepower generates serious heat. The key to success is keeping your cool in the heat of battle. Enter PC Specialist’s Proto A. We’re quite sure there will be a ‘B’ and ‘C’ etc to follow.

We spoke with PC Specialist engineers and they told us that they were not happy to enter this market until the technologies were well and truly proven. An early ‘Whoops, that has definitely failed’ experience in the test lab with the old Cool-It Domino, meant that PCS has stayed clear of non-Air based solutions. Until now.

On show was a heavily overclocked Intel Core i7 4770k with a GTX780 and 16GB of Kingston HyperX memory – booting from a 240GB HyperX SSD – all with Custom Liquid Cooling in a Corsair Carbide 540 chassis. Nice.

Here are some close ups from our embedded camera man:-

KitGuru says: When your company is big enough to be running serious TV advertising and have a production area that spans 3 enormous buildings – you need to have a liquid cooled option. Now they have.
