In the world of custom PCs, we have been impressed by the life-size Iron Man suit PC, a Ducati motorcycle PC, and a Tesla kiddie ride PC – just to name a few. We have thought we have seen it all… Well, as it turns out, we did miss a few mind-blowing creations over the last few years – including this, the Gigabyte Fish Tank PC.
The Gigabyte Fish Tank PC was from, I believe 2017, but prior to that there were other similar fish tank creations. What separates this from the rest is, it had real fishes in it and there was no wall separating the fish from the special cooling liquid which the components were immersed in.
The magic here plays on the different density of two fluids. The bottom half is 3M Novec/Flourinert, which is commonly used in an oil system, while the top is regular water. The former is denser and therefore remains in the bottom. Because of the difference in density, the two fluids remain separated without the need for a physical barrier. Clever, very clever.
On the spec-sheet, this setup features an Intel Core i9-7980XE processor on a X299 AORUS Gaming 7 PRO motherboard, an AORUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Extreme Edition GPU, Kingston HyperX FURY DDR4 RAM, AORUS AP850GM PSU, and Andras Double Swordfish.
