This is something we did as a class project and turned out pretty nice. Ill take pictures of it tommorow of what our verison turned out like.
Im going to make my own at my house so I can have a eye catching computer like this.


PS. If theres a way to make a youtube vidoe display in here please change :)

Looks good, but wont catch me doing anything like that ;)

Eventually what will happen is performance will go down, because although the oil is an insulator and doesn't conduct electricity it can still seep into the components like capacitors and could cause them to have a very short life span.

As to having videos embedded in post, it wont be allowed because spammers would only then embed dirty, nasty videos ;)

edit: what kind of temps were you getting?

On that link, you can go onto the website, and theres a sort of blog on how its going, and what else they've done.
They've had the machine up for 6 months now, with fans, and everything is still working as well as they were on day 1.
