CES 2009: Small, liquid cooled gaming SLI PC


We finally got a chance to see the highly anticipated HP Blackbird 002. Rahul Sood’s team pulled off another interesting miracle, as they've made a small and very quiet gaming high end PC.

The machine that we’ve seen at CES has Q9550 a 2.83GHz Core 2 Quad CPU, 4GB memory and two Nvidia 9800S mobile cards. To make it more interesting the company behind LCLC, Low Cost Liquid cooler that we reviewed here has made a water cooler that can cool two MXM based 9800S cards, Core 2 Quad CPU.

Each card has 512MB of memory and it is powered by Nvidia 760i SLI capable chipset. There will be two models and the cheaper one will sell for $1799, while the more expensive one will sell for $2199.

We have to admit that last thing we expected was small water cooled PC and at the same time, the machine looks great. The limitation will certainly be the upgradeability, but one more positive thing is the external power supply in the form of a notebook-like shaped unit.

Even if you're considering getting a gaming notebook, you might want to consider this machine first.
