Bourbon Barrel PC

By Andrew Gregory. Posted

Whisky (or whiskey if you’re into the stuff from Ireland or America) is lovely to drink, but it’s even better as a coolant to take heat energy away from your overheating computer components.

At least, that seems to be the thinking behind this absolutely perfect work from Josh Kroger, a 23-year-old mechanical and plumbing consulting engineer.

He’s combined a bottle of booze and an old oak bourbon barrel to create a PC enclosure with a beautiful cooling system. It’s fully functional, and the bottle really is plumbed into a working system.
