    that's cool, I might build a case out of wood and plexiglass(however u spell that) and use a type of freon cooling. I will be working in a heating/cooling biz's office this summer so, I could learn some thermal tricks. The wooden case would look awesome, though, sanded down and stained like mahogany.

    I am really curious as to how much extra cooling the oil adds as oposed to simply sitting in the fridge.

    yeah okay so you got your PC in a tub of oil, but can you deep try tacos and jalapeƱo poppers in it? That would be a cool trick!

    It ran like that for months, but then I decided to move and didn't take it with me. A shame, I know, but it was a fun project while it lasted.

    And no I couldn't fry things in it, but when my friend mistakenly set his beer in it he got a nice stain on his pants an hour later. That's even better.

    yeah had to get rid of it when I moved. Since this, I made a couple other little oil cooled projects ... but I have been playing around with peltiers lately.
