It is a mess and not worth it. Looks neat.

The oil wicks up the wires and gets everywhere.

You still need a rad and pump. Ruins all warrenty options, HD's can't go in there, and it's a terrible terrible mess.

Looks neat though. If you got extra parts and an old fishtank, sure!

I wasn't planning on doing this, just posting it. I guess I should of said that in the original post lol.
It wouldn't be worth it for me.
I thought it looked pretty cool though.

Oh it does look cool, that's for sure.
Koolance showed up to CES with one years ago, and it looked amazing.

Still a real PITA to live with on a "daily driver", especially since most computers here run a lot more wattage with OCing, cooling becomes problematic.

I saw this awhile ago and since then it has been my goal to give it a try someday.

I think a dual core ivy CPU would be suited for this. Low wattage and a SSD so it can be submerged.

I see a project log in my future.
