Whats sucks is that he can probably never use those parts in any other system. I mean i'm sure it would be possible but gross!

Seen this quite a few times, not this exact one, but a comp in an inert fluid that won't conduct.

Doesn't necessarily aid in cooling all that much but it sure is a trip just to see a comp running in liquid

fans would do nothing....it's air that is below the ambient temp = condensation.....so it's going to happen no matter what inside a fridge.

You CAN however take the compressor from a fridge or small AC unit and use it to make your own chiller for an active water cooling loop.

None of the pages will load for me. Must be a bandwidth issue.

Oil Cooling PC's is a worthless idea IMO.

I heard somewhere that mineral oil would work? I have no idea, as I am not too familliar with the water cooling systems and such.



The pages wouldn't load for me either.
