Man, I so wanna do that with a old computer... Hmm... How much radiation you think it gives off? I want My Chicken Cooked Radiation Free...

Well... 10% Raditation free is fine XD

As your your pump, It are you going to have a fan blowing on your Radiator?

Or just set it outside the Oil...

Did you seal all the Parts before doing that or just Dunked it?

I was just thinking, pure water (not tap) doesnt conduct electricity. Would that work?
...sounds like a good idea untill you factor in that electricity conducts through the inpurities in the water, and as soon as you put the computer in, theres gunna be crap floating around, not to mention dust and stuff. so, in theory, it sounds good, but im thinking youll just end up with a pile of wet junk...:eek:

Couldn't be more correct, Gotta love the Impuritys!

I dono about radiation.. im sure not much..lol

there will be pc fans blowing on the radiator, and it will be infron of my ac.. (or ustside in winteR)

NOTHING is sealed at all.. it all just goes in..

you mean distiled water.. yes it would work for a while (like they say a few post ago).. but still water does not adsorb heat as well as oil does anyway.

hmm.. dono.. but I do that if to many particles get in the oil that it will let the oil transfer electricity. its actually the stuff in water or oil that transfers the electricity not the oil or water it self. so I was carful and get everything real clean before putting in it, and I got a nice seal with my cover, so im prety safe from water or particles getting in..

i think the best thing u can do is just save up for a propper case and cooling parts.. its not worth potentially ruining your whole computer over... it might cost a bit more but we all have to do it:p

actually, even distilled, pure water will conduct a little bit of electricity. but small amounts of solute will drastically increase the conductivity. Anything that is ionic (eg, water) will have someone of a conductive nature due to anode and cathode arrangement. Pure watter naturally dissociates into H+ and OH- molecules, which will be pulled toward the cathode and the anode, respectively. however, i dont know just what the electronegativity of pure water is, it might not be enough to do any damange to computer components, but i just wanted to dispell the myth that pure water does not conduct electricity at all, because it does.

Yeah but putting your computer in oil is a ton cooler (not in C or F)

If I found an old seemingly worthless computer I would get it and permanent oil bath too

well to tell you the truth I am planning on building core 2 quad rig in the next month and I have another rig just in case.. I to was a little unsure at first.. I feel like its fine now and I feel like it will last a long time.. we will see

i remember this....
i was going to try this, but my parents would FREAK if i filled my rig with oil.
I Recon it would be entertaining to watch my Parents Reaction!

I plan to do this when i get the time, With just an Old computer... I dont see why you didnt seal up all the slots...

If you ever want to change something your basically screwed... But it would still be DEFINITELY Fun...

seal what slots?.. I dont need to seal anything and I will never be screwed when it comes to adding or changing compenents.. It will work just the same as before..
