Mineral Oil Cooled PC

Here's mine if you want to check it out:

I'm working on a cooling system now. I'm going to use a peltier chip on top of a cooling rod with one end in the oil and the heatsink in the open air. This way there's no pumping oil outside the case and risk making a mess. I'll post another video when I get done.

A very nice idea, one thats been used in Crays for some time. However, the oil will eat away the PCB eventually.

This actually was the least of my concerns, after a couple months of over-clocking + gaming, i found that the oil was actually eating away at the sealant that held the fish tank together.

I came home one day... I'll let you fill in the rest.
