Personal Liquid-cooled Supercomputer
The personal supercomputer (PSC) features all liquid cooled processors. Liquid-cooling the PSC´s two Intel Xeon 5590 CPUs, three nVidia Tesla cards and one nVidia Quadro card is accomplished with six independent Asetek cooling loops. Unlike computers submerged in aquariums full of oil or equipped with consumer grade graphics cards, the PSC is built for commercial deployments. Liquid Coolers give it the same level of service ability as air cooling. The PSC can simultaneously process compute-heavy tasks and render visually demanding graphics using nVidia Maximus technology. The PSC is built on the SuperServer 7046GT-TRF-TC4 platform with modifications to accommodate mounting the heat exchangers for the four GPU cards, three nVidia Tesla C2075 companion processors and one nVidia Quadro 6000 professional graphics solution, on fan rail situated mid-chassis. The two Intel Xeon Processor W5590 CPUs are cooled using all-in-one liquid coolers that mount as a single unit on the processors.
