    I live in Melbourne. Ambient room temp was about 18C. But it didn't really matter - most of the CPU and video card core was under the oil anyway.

    And yeah, that's a ghost. They were originally smiley faces, but the company expanded their products and introduced a ghost. They're basically "french fries", except shaped differently.

    Ahhh I love it. Nice work mate, you've shown that something weird yet ingenious can always be done with computers. warmace is right, needs some sort of circulation, just to help the cooling. I'm sure you can start a trend on these forums with that, mind you :D

    My thoughts exactly! what other chemical goodies are in a computer that, when boiled in oil, would like to come out and play with the food youre cooking - lead, mercury, lithium, stuff in thermal paste. Enjoy a shortened life :rolleyes:

    On another note - i've been looking to use immersion cooling for a few years now using mineral oil. my one concern though is hard drives, which require air internally to function. There's a lot more to sealing it if youre gonna make it look good too, soooo i just havent.

    other den dat, excellent work OP
