Stop. You had us at oil submersed motherboard, CPU and GPUs. You didn’t even have to dunk the SSDs, PSU or create a custom motherboard and bullet resistant tank too to convince us that you’re really hard core, umm, Hardcore.
Of course, if you stare too hard at the tank, you’ll miss all the heavenly glory that the Hardcore PC truly is. From its beautiful aluminum case, to its top port routing and the easy to access hard drives, every centimeter of the machine oozes custom computing. And we can honestly say that after tinkering with the most exotic PCs available on Earth for a decade now. What Hardcore is trying to do is so over the top that no one has ever tried it before on a production machine.
But before Hardcore can ascend to take its place among the top performance PC makers, there are an awful lot of questions to answer. Like can they really make and sell these babies for how much the company claims it can? Does it really work? To find the answer to that read on.
Happy Halloween, dear readers. We hope you dressed up as something geeky to celebrate. This week, the podcast gang recounts their visit to the amazing Morrison Planetarium, discuss the Oil Immersion PC we have in house, and dish about the recently released X58 Core i7-compatible motherboards. Plus, Norm accepts a challenge and attempts to eat some gross jelly candy (Chuckes after the jump). And as always, answer a load of listener questions (including a call-in that we rate 9.5!).
Plus, hit the jump for a caption contest!
