To the dude who has 29,000+ LEGO's...you have my respect. I was HUGEEEEEEE into LEGO's for over 13yrs. I thought my collection was big, but it's only like 5000 if that. You have made my day

You could turn the fridge face side up and fill it alcohol..... wouldn't short, and the lack of air would prevent condesation, and theoretically would prevent fire...... You could call it da bomb. Where about do you live in SD?

Hmmm, alcohol is non electrically conductive? It sure is flammable =/

He could use Hydrofluoride I believe it's called. It's a non-conductive liquid.

Yoshi used it on the screen savers but he had a system pumping out that liquid through an intercooler sitting in dry ice, and then after it went through that was pumped back onto the CPU.

Was crazy to just see the CPU sitting there with no heatsink in a tub of liquid When he turned the pump off that caused the jet of liquid to stop from blowing onto the CPU you could see it causing the liquid to boil lol, mind you it has a low boiling point though

i think he means isoprypol alcohol (not the drinking kind lol) I clean my CPU with it (91% stuff, it's stronger. hell i clean my face with it everynight :OUCH!!!, and just about everything that gets dirty. Works on all kinds of metal, non-conductive and dries up real fast.

yeah I know. Isopropyl is still highly flammable.

I use 99% to clean off the goop from my processors.

it is? no way, i've tried to light it on fire before lmao. Maybe it was very diluted like 32% or something...but i use 91% on my face and it burns like hell. sheesh i'll have to stay away from candles after i wash my face at night lmao.

LAMO!!! i just read the bottle for the first time and it says "WARNING: FLAMMABLE - Keep away from heat, spark, electrical, fire or flame"

I guess since it dries up in a matter of seconds it's nearly impossible to catch fire unless there is a large amount. I've been using it on electrical parts for years and never had a problem.
