That is pretty awesome! Wonder if that would last as long as a normal air cooled pc?

On paper I would say it lasts longer... maybe not the PSU. :eh:

Just add some plastic fish and you'd have a nice 'theme PC'. The smell of cooking oil could give you the munchies constantly. Or possibly just make you feel sick.

Hmm, looks cool but i think it may overheat pretty easy.

Whereas the oil (presumably) is an excellent conductor of heat, the air on top (only visible ventilation i can see) isn't. Meaning it'll get hotter and hotter and hotter.

I may be wrong.

Thats exactly what I was thinking when I watched this ^

Sure it's cool at first, but nothing is cooling down the oil.... so eventually it's going to overheat.

And you would think this would screw up the connections between components after a while, no? If the oil were to seep in between the contacts of... say, your GFX card and the PCI-E slot, now it wouldn't be making a full connection.

wow I've always thought mixing liquid and electricity was a no-no.

What is this mineral oil stuff?

Can't see the parts lasting long though. Surely parts will get fried.
