Digital Storm wants gamers to drool over the 22-fan Aventum II PC

If you want to push your PC’s brain to the edge of its sanity, you need liquid cooling to keep it from melting down. Digital Storm has come up with custom cooling for its Aventum II, its newest computer for gaming enthusiasts.

Digital Storm Aventum II fansUnveiled today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Aventum II features a nickel-plated copper pipe system that cools off the machine while it’s running intense 3D graphics. The company says the cooling improves system durability while providing a visual aesthetic enthusiasts will “drool over.”

“The Aventum II is a performance inspired machine, its very nature required our engineering team to push the envelope during development,” said Rajeev Kuruppu, Digital Storm’s director of product development, in a statement. “That’s why we chose to be the first system integrator to offer copper piping to end users inside a high-performance PC, like the Aventum II. Enthusiasts will get an infinitely more durable cooling system that can weather the extreme heat that bleeding edge hardware produces.”

The computer isn’t just a show piece. It has a control board that allows you to control the array of 22 fans. In fact, you could probably make a game out of controlling all of those fans.

The machine also has a new exhaust chamber design, designed to create air flow within the computer.

Digital Storm is a boutique computer maker that has been around since 2002. The company will release specifications and prices later. The system goes on sale in mid-March.
