I've heard about people submerging they're mobo's in non conductive oil, but I haven't heard or seen too much about it..

If you were to submerge the mobo, and put a water block on it, with the res in the fridge.. Condensation wouldn't be a worry at all would it? this has probably been discussed a million times allready, but the whole thing seems so simple.. Have people tried this?

Of course I would imagine it'd be hard to make a decent case with that sort of setup and I'd never wanna touch my motherboard again.. but why haven't more people done this?

you can submerge your computer minus moving parts (CD players etc) in mineral oil. Mineral oil is non conductive and if your mobo was submerged you wouldn't need a waterblock. You would just need to recirculate the oil and keep it cool somehow. But that is what you do. Just find an article online with a search engine. Those articles are out there but you have to do a little bit of looking.

And P.S. There are no silly questions around here. Questions is what these forums are for.
