They have a sort of seal onthe blocks to deal with condensation.  The info is in the forums.  Temps are below 0 degrees celcius idle, and you're looking at around 32 degrees full load.

I think they are cooling the Radiator, remember that temps are based on the heat exchange at the radiator and its ability to cool... or using a phase changer on the cpu itself

If they are having sub-zero temps (idle) and if so at most max teens early twenties full load and if those pics in the article are the real internal, I have one word (and question): condensation?

How has condensation been dealt with?  I'm not seeing the typical insulative acrobatics customary for sub-zero temps.

What liquid are they using as well to deliver sub-zeros?

The picture is simply a stock photo...

 

and no, condensation has not been dealt with in such a rig as imaged for sub-zero temperatures.

 

What they are almost certianly going to focus on is CPU only anyway, and even if a GPU option is in the works, it would be isolated, because the more places that are cold enough to allow for condensation, the more will be a potential point of failure, and thus will eventually fail.

 

Anyone working on a sub-zero rig might just as well graduate to liquid N2 and call it a day... They aren't building an "every day" use computer anyway.

No cold-beer-can look on those tubes, either.  If that is a refrigerated rig, condensation should be an issue.  Perhaps they seal the case and create a vacuum?  Is there a de-humidifier in the case? Questions, questions.

One drop of water,........I'm guessing they found some way to take care of that. After all, if it's really running that cold, they would of seen that in there test runs. I'm hoping it's fine, because I've bin waiting for them to finish this system.

Aren't electrons moving slowly in cold temperatures?

No.
