Aftershock’s New Explorer PC Is Its First-Ever Water-Cooled, Wall-Mountable Rig

Ever had your PC heat up so badly you wish you could sometimes just pour some water over it to cool it off? Now you can… kinda, with Aftershock‘s new Explorer gaming PC.

The Aftershock Explorer comes with Open-Loop Water-Cooling technology — a first for the Singapore-based PC manufacturer.

Open-loop water-cooling isn’t a new technology, per se, but it is a cool (heh) alternative to conventional air cooling for PCs. It’s like having an aquarium for your PC parts, only that it’s much more expensive than traditional air cooling PCs.

The Aftershock Explorer comes in two open-loop water-cooling variants.

The first one is the Hardline Acrylic version, which enables you to see the tubing in the interior of the Explorer.

The second variant is the Chrome Metal Hardline, which features an awesome LCD display for your PC’s temperature.

Aside from the water-cooling capabilities, the Aftershock Explorer houses some of the most formidable gaming hardware to ensure you’ll never be short on quality gaming, and it’s even wall mount ready.

On the visual end, it can be outfitted with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080/2080TI GPUs for the most optimum graphical power for games such as Shadow of the Tomb Raider or Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Its 8-core 9th-gen Intel i7/i9 processor ensures the smoothest performance out of your day-to-day on it. Furthermore, its Z390 motherboard allows for the most flexible customisation you can get on a gaming PC.

The Aftershock Explorer will retail from S$3,300 onwards, and is available now on their official website.
