I guess they unplugged the fans in that PSU befor putting it in that fish tank.

 

Also it would take balls of Iron to put your hand in there while everything is powered up. I know that the mineral oid isn't conductive it's still a liquid and every bone in your body would be screaming at you that you are going to get shocked crapless.

I can hear the investors of Hardcore PC cringe!

I'd bet they're enjoying a good laugh right now.  This kit is nowhere near the Hardcore system in terms of useability.  From the looks of it, most people could piece meal something like this together with a trip to Walmart.

Shamelessly borrowed from Dictionary.com:

Aquarium
A*qua"ri*um\, n.
An artificial pond, or a globe or tank (usually with glass sides), in
which living specimens of aquatic animals or plants are kept.

"aquarium." Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary. MICRA, Inc. 30 Oct. 2008. <Dictionary.com http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/aquarium>.

That's not an aquarium.  It's an oil-cooled PC in a cheap excuse for a water-tight case.

I'll be impressed when they can do one with fish swimming around in it!

By the way, I'm not sure the formatting on the comments section works quite right.  I've tried everything I can think of to put "returns" in my comments to no avail.  Maybe it's a problem with Firefox on openSUSE 11.0, but I doubt it.
