Ya i think i have also, but i wouldn't want to do though. The psu is the one thing I could still scrap after all the other pieces of a pc are obsolete.

Well yeah there are more efficient things, but this would be the cheapest way of getting a decent amount of cooling.

When you consider you need quite a few litres of oil (15 or so seems about right) thats unlikely to warm up anytime soon! Oil takes a lot of heating to warm up, and with a large enough amount of it the heat will dissipate across the heat via convection currents.

The machine is old and knackered. If I dont do this Ill probably just scrap it anyway, so I dont really care if it dies!

The only thing is having cables trail out of the oil tank for all the drives, and the PSU. Ill remove the CPU fan but keep on a reasonable heatsink, and keep the radeon's fan on it. But as it cools everything it should be fairly useful.

I dont why I bother :(

P.S. Thanks saxon!
