Talking submerged PC

ok so i was thinking about taking an old compaq i have and submerging it in nonconductive fluid for kicks, i read somewhere the best stuff for money is polyalphaolefin commonly know as PAO also heard about people using fying/vegetable oil but sounded funny, so anyway would this stuff work?

AMSOIL Synthetic 5W-40 European Engine Oil

there is also fluid xp for $30 a quart and mct-40 for $22 for 320z bottle, and even Innovatek Protect PRO Non-Conductive Water Cooling Flui for frozen cpu but they supposedly aren't fit for ful submergence.

try getting a multimeter, and some veg. oil, and test the conductivity of that.
