Dell unveiled the XPS 710 H2C (H2Ceramic) desktop PC which features a midnight-black case and a custom two-stage process cooling system. First, a liquid-to-air heat exchanger that works like a car's radiator removes most of the heat from the processor. Then, a fluid chiller removes more heat with ceramic-based thermoelectric cooling (TEC) modules like those used in space shuttles to transfer heat from the sunny side to the cold, dark side in space. Sensor controls help prevent the formation of frost or condensation by helping to keep the processor slightly above ambient room.

Here's a look at the specifications:
  • Factory-installed Dell H2C two-stage cooling solution including a fan, liquid-to-air heat exchanger, TEC fluid chiller, and circuitry that regulates the fan and TEC voltage to cool the processor efficiently during normal and over-clocked operation
  • Intel Core Extreme QX6700 quad-core processor factory overclocked to 3.2 GHz
  • Two NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX graphics cards with quad scalable link interface technology for high-definition gaming resolution
  • 4GB 667MHz DDR2 memory for fast loading of programs and screens
  • Dual 160GB 10,000 RPM hard drives (with room for two additional hard drives)
  • Dual optical drives
  • Dell UltraSharp 2007WFP 20-inch widescreen flat-panel monitor with Dell AS501 flat-panel mount speakers
  • The Razer Tarantula gaming keyboard and Razer Copperhead gaming mouse
  • Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 operating system
  • One-year limited warranty with designated sales service and support queue
  • The XPS 710 H2C Edition is really expensive, the basic configuration costs $5,499. Way too expensive for most people but the specs look pretty good.

    Very nice indeed, the cooling system sounds cool too. Unfortunately it's a bit too expensive for me so I'll have to pass on this one.
