It looks like iBuyPower has gone all out with its new Erebus line of gaming PCs, offering liquid cooling options that will literally have your system chilling out like no other.

At its best, the Erebus combines four radiators (three 240mm ones and a 480mm one) to pump 4.5 gallons per minute through 13mm high-flow tubing. The system builder claims that this system dissipates more heat (3,400 watts) than an average refrigerator, microwave, and window air conditioning unit combined. A built-in speed control knob lets you regulate the amount of coolant being pumped (max of 22.3L/min). A row of fins on top of the case whisk away excessive noise and heat.

The Erebus line comes in six base configurations, with the ability to customize each one further. The least expensive one, the $1,249 E1, comes with 4GB of memory, 500GB hard drive, Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti graphics card, and Intel Core i5-2400 CPU. To get the "quad-radiator" system, you need to step up to the $1,799 E2.

For the truly cooling-obsessed, the V3 adds another pair of radiators to the four already installed, and ups the specs to a Core i7-990X Processor Extreme Edition (overclocked up to 30 percent), 12GB of memory, a trio of GeForce GTX 580 cards in 3-Way SLI configuration, and both a 2TB hard drive and pair of 96GB SSDs in RAID 0 configuration. The price? A cool $6,899.
