wouldn't the oil expand (even just a little bit) as it heated up and crack the sealed system?

This would work. Although it would attract bugs if it was sitting in my room for months and months.

The oil is safe. Well, as safe as can be. It has far less ions than even de-ionized water, as you can see from their earlier experiments. Oil was an idea that came later. They wanted a tank feel, with floating components. It would have been silent, and looked sweet.

Did I mention if the fetus kicks your harddrive, you're screwed? Maybe that's why this didn't catch on.. ^_^U

Good idea. Not a DIY project though. You'll fry yourself and/or your pc.

yes, it is sealed. but im not so sure the container is heat proof. so the heat would at the very least escape through the glass

lets see now....
Liquids conduct electricity due to dissolved salts forming ions which can move freely between the cation and anion (the two wires in the liquid).

Polar solvents like water disolve these salts easily so keep them from your pc (but pure water is a poor conductor).

However organic solvents like oils tend not to allow ions to dissolve in them, so no charged particles moving, so no current flowing.

So in theory, you are safe with oil in the pc. Don't hold me to that though! Overheating will be a problem eventually if it is sealed, cause the heat will build up and not be released.

Also, anything to stop this noisy fan blowing away, I can hear it from downstairs!

if you ever got any kind of leak in a liquid cooling system bye bye computer. Plus you have to keep adding water to it since heat makes water evaporate.
Also a couple fans dont make any more noise then a pump does.

The only reason I can see to have a liquid cooled system is if your overclocking. With prices of processors so cheap these days its not worth it.

I would water cool a computer for a fun project but I would never have one as my main computer.

Reminds me of my cowputer

Runs on a Calfon processor, come with it's own net and fish flakes. Send off for the Cow embryo like you do ants for and ant farm!

Yes I did make this myself and it is photoshopped :)

the reason you would do this is to make yout pc quite, tho this is a drastic measure it is not a fire hazard as im guessing cooking oil is a non conductent, other wise they would have used water which would have fried the mainbord taking a serge to the powerbox then casuing a eletrical fire at the wall. many companies that have very powerfull server have looked at submerging there servers in liquids, the closest this has reached to the public market are liquid cooling systems where liquid is pumped through the system through tubing. this is a much quiter and better way to cool your system to the normal 120mm fans. i have a liquid system and it sits at 28 degrees C. well i think i wrote to much but whatever

Disgusting, idiotic, and a fire hazard. What more could a moron want in a DIY project?

I mean cooking oil is flammable.

Ummm, cooking requires alot more heat than a PC creates. My chips dont go up in flames at 400 degrees.
What I found extremely stupid was the fact they didnt make the back of the case the top?? If they did then you wouldnt have to seal crap and it would be 1000 times better. Did I miss something?

That would suck, no cd/floppy drive, no power button. and for mine, no meters and pretty lights.
