Xteam - no you dont....he's talking about a fish tank filled with nonconductive liquid.....not a case filled with water sealed away from the components like you guys somehow misinterpreted from his post.........read what he wants..

"A fish tank filled with nonconductive liquid" and the components dropped inside........uhhh as far as I'm aware fish tanks come sealed.

Tyler - yes WATER would mess up components but look at what he said "nonconductive fluid" if you were aware of this then yes there are liquids out there that you can submerge electronics in that do not conduct electricty.

just look at this link the dude above posted:

Like I said, one such liquid is called HFE Hydrofluoride ether or something like that, $200 a gallon

lol, 17lb heatsink......whole case weighs 95lbs haha, no wonder he went with a nice aluminum lian-li case, still heavy as hell

but yeah that's one of many nonconductive fluids out there, although that's probably the best execution I've seen

OMFG $200 a gallon!!!!! btw nubious that was exactly what i was thinking of doing but with bright blue non conductive fluid and lights shining up from the bottom.

dam thats a bit out of my price range. having fish swimming around would be cool but i can't see any way to do it.

the idea of a side window with fish in it i've heard of before and that would be cool but my last fish tank was a disaster (they bread and bread and bread until they started getting too crammed and then they killed each other)

btw thnx a lot for the responses guys
