My friend and I are going to build an extreme OC machine, and we are throwing ideas back and forth about how too cool it. We have an elaborate system in mind, but it's nice to try all other ideas too. I had thought of using oil like that, but I figured that maybe oil is conductive, so I thought against it. Is it common knowledge that oil in nonconductive? If it is, I feel like an idiot. Because, apparently it is not conductive.

I'm totally going to try that. Possibly the cheapest, extremely effective way of cooling.

This guy used some kind of salad oil. It will smell nasty after a few weeks of using it.

Oil is non conductive I believe but I wonder if it is corrosive to mobos and such? Cool thinkging as long as you dont ever have to change anything. I would just go water cooling, not like that ofcourse though. I would try and use tranny fluid from an automatic. Cool-e-o thinking though.
