    If you have a link that would be nice. :D

    And sorry for the image downtime, I hadn't realised it went down. I've reuploaded them, hopefully this host won't explode.

    And wow, this thread has over 100,000 views.

    I thought the tin pan that it was in would short it out. I guess the oil some how acted as an insulator?

    Just seen this... amazing! I don't think the solder would've melted... You'd need to get it way above 200degrees C wouldn't you? I woulda washed the motherboard first tho. ;):eek:

    Does nobody notice the black cable going under the pan to something white with a rounded edge - almost like an electric hot plate...? No black cables go into the pan over the sides and the PSU is powered from the opposite side of the pic.

    You've been duped.
