Here are some pics he sent last night.
The curvature of some of the shots are because of the screen on his (do we even call them a "TV" still?) ...being curved.

The Water Cooling is done with special Heat Sinks....

The heat sinks have ports in them just like the heads and block on our engines.
Water is piped thru those ports and out to a Radiator behind, or inside the cage.

A fan blows a lot of air thru that radiator to keep the CPU and other stuff cool.
we can add them to our current PCs, but it is too costly for almost no gain in performance.

One advantage though, the radiator is about the only thing that gets a lot of dust in it

..right!
..if I'm spending thousand's on something, ...it won't be a computer.
But apparently, it takes thousands of dollars for me to be impressed with Win10.
I'm glad he could do that for me though!

I have win 10 on 3 pcs, and not having any trouble with them. Just gotta turn off a ton of spying crap. 2 of them on water cooled i7's Both process video encoding like nothing I ever had before. Very pleased. And, so far, not weird surprises from 10.

Here's a typical example, T.L.

I have two desktops running windows 10 one being connected to my main TV and one that I use in the office and a laptop running windows 10 evaluation. I don't have a murmur out of them.
I do use Classic shell mostly but starting to use the win 10 menu, it works fine.

The windows 10 browser still needs work so I do tend to stick with Firefox and or Chrome
