Hardcore Computer, Inc. submerged all of the heat-producing components ” the CPU, motherboard, video card, memory and power supplies ” in a custom dielectric fluid they have named Core Coolant, eliminating heat-related computing limitations. Reactor incorporates the benefits of liquid submersion cooling with twin additive and redundant server-class 650Watt power supplies; audiophile-quality Creative Labs X-Fi, EAX, 7.1-channel Dolby® digital surround sound embedded on the motherboard; three on-board SATA solid-state drives configured in an ultra-fast RAID 0 array; and two truly hot-swappable external hard drives.
Form following function, Reactor has a distinctive look.

Also on the case top are optional, dual, diversity Wi-Fi antennas. The system chassis incorporates handles that serve as a means for transporting Reactor. The handles also aid in the removal of the system core, which includes all of the computers active components, from the liquid for maintenance or upgrades.

Reactor also sports user-selectable internal tank and chassis base lights.
