Your PC is probably fine. You might even think it’s good. Potentially even decent, if you spent a few thousand dollars.
But you are wrong. Your PC is a peasant compared to this monstrosity.
Corsair’s suite at Computex 2019 was filled with all the things you’d expect — RGB lighting here, there and everywhere, with a bit of Elgato streamer gear and lighting on the site (since Corsair owns Elgato now).
But something that stood out was the astronomically expensive Hydro X 1000D — a $US10,000 that weighs 8kg, is kitted out with all of Corsair’s new watercooling pumps, radiators and water blocks, and is effectively two PCs in one.
And when I say effectively, I mean actually. The 1000D is literally two PCs in a single unit: one build with an i7-9700K on a mini-ITX board, and a second build using Intel’s 9980XE, which costs $3000 in Australia. That’s why there’s so much watercooling — each of the PCs inside have their own tanks and coolant loops, their own power supplies, RAM, and so on.
A local Corsair manager probably described the 1000D best: a karma PC for Reddit.
