You forgot to mention that you can't put new hardware in, as the slots would be full of oil...

Nice temperature though, I get very slightly higher temperatures with my water cooling, but my room is always around 25/26*c.

the cards squeeze the oil out.

We've slotted in different video cards and changed the ram/cpu

very interesting. however, you should have run the computer for a while without the oil to get peak temps without oil to compare to your oiled machine. but like i said, very interesting. keep us updated!

what would that matter? It's not like oil is hard to push past....
