What if it starts hydrogenating again? Then you'll be stuck with a margarine covered mobo.
If there is a fishtank pump in the oil, wount it be constantly be circulating the oil so it doesnt stand still thus making it pretty hard to hydrogenate again?

Inside a refrigerator, there is bound to be some condensation, and not every part of the oil is going always moving, so I imagine if he keeps it running long enough, margarine will start to form in all the little crevices.

I think this is a very cool idea, and a great project. For everyday use, though, not so sure. I just think that this is bound to eventually cause some kind of problems. And even if it didn't, a fridge dosen't fit under my desk as well as the computer case.

18* C... that's incredible. Mine idles at like 35.

Very nice little PC, well, big including the fridge. Have you throught of taking ot out of the fridge, and trying to cook chips in the oil.
Now that would be energy efficiency ;)

I think if he took it out of the fridge, he might end up cooking some chips regardless.

Why would it? It doesn't conduct electricity. The only thing it could hurt is drives... and maybe the powersupply.

Why does everyone keep the powersupply out of it... how can it be hurt?

and oil is a lubricant, so it woulden't wear down anything thats moving.

upgrading would be a huge pain with that.
but, coulden't you have pretty much the same resaults by just having the pc in the frige without the oil? it'd basicly be a temperature controlled environment like net centers use for the racked PCs.
