HP liquid-cooled PCs?

HP has recently teased an upcoming PC release with what amounts to be a gadget, a USB-powered fridge with enough room for one can of soda. While there is little supporting information available on the purpose of the curiosity, the interior of the tiny fridge reveals a photo of a liquid-cooling setup, a real version of which is believed by many to find its way into an upcoming HP desktop. Thus far, HP only offers variations of its pricey Blackbird 002 gaming desktop PCs with liquid cooling as an integrated option.

In the gaming rigs, which HP offers with the ability to overclock the CPUs straight from the factory, the liquid cooling infrastructure keeps the faster running processors from reaching dangerously high temperatures. [via UberGizmo]
