Default Re: First real image of xbox360, new controller and remote

yes.. but those are also checked and maintained on regular basis

Thats the biggets hurdle.. maintenance.. Most plastic tubing will slowly allow coolant to evaporate and leave.. slowly, but surely... however, there's stuff out there that won't do that (for any appreciable amount in a timespan in 5 years at least).. and stuff that won't rot and clog.. hence why your seeing water cooled stuff slowly appear straight from the factory to your avg end consumer now.

Its just one more thing to worry about... (similar to air fans having to deal with dust and such).. But as long as you can convice me, the consumer, that I won't even have to think twice about how its cooled, as in I just plug it in and it works, who cares.
