Garden pond used to watercool RTX4090 PC

In a world where technology is constantly pushing the boundaries, companies are now exploring the depths of the ocean, not for treasure, but for better heat dissipation for data centers. However on experimental project has taken this concept and applied it to a garden pond, demonstrating the potential of using water to cool high-end PC components.

The watercooled PC project involved the use of an RTX 4090 and an Intel I9 13900k, components that generate over 800 watts of heat. The challenge was to find a way to dissipate this heat effectively, and the solution was found in the most unlikely of places – a garden pond.

Tucked away in Pursat province, “Moly’s Mixed-Farming Garden” represents a vibrant community deeply rooted in the diverse agricultural offerings of local farmers.

The garden specialises in local goods, showcasing the bounty of the region’s fruits, vegetables, fish and meat.

Yun Sarin, the community’s founding visionary, embarked on this venture after witnessing the difficulties faced by local farmers.

Struggling to find markets for their carefully grown and harvested produce, Sarin saw an opportunity.

As a well-connected young man, adept in the ways of social media, he used his influence to establish a market for his region’s produce.

“We initially focused on lemons – a product in high demand and scarce supply. We managed to distribute about 200 to 500kg daily,” Sarin explained.

The mixed-farming garden’s offerings have since evolved, featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables, including oranges, rambutan, passion fruit, durian,

Well, the fine art of decorating homes has come a long way since then, and thank heavens it has for the gift and home business. Home décor has become a huge business, as witnessed by their place in both wholesale markets and independent specialty stores around the country. Consumers have been looking for trending home décor and easy ways to freshen a room for several years now.
