Not a bad idea, but the way he built it is pretty primitive. It also has no way for the mineral oil to be cooled. The oil will absorb heat and now it has no way of dissipating it. There's a guy that posted on the Anandtech forums on how he built his Mineral Oil PC. It took some trial & error along with a large amount of time and custom machining the entire case. The oil is cooled by being pulled through a radiator at the bottom of the case which is blown across by multiple case fans.

this has been out for a while.

There was a thread on this a while ago, but I don't remember when it was exactly.

There was a maximumpc rig of the month a few years ago which was submerged in oil as well.

This was on MPC a while back, the true standard for oil cooling.

I've debated doing something like that until I learned it isn't all it's cracked up to be. A guy's CPU was overheating even with a cooled current (flowing) submersion setup. I can't remember all the specifics why he was having that issue, but pinpoint or traditional liquid cooling is a proven effective way to cool computer hardware. Submersion has only been done by one manufacturing company combined with traditional liquid cooling, yet the specs show it's really not a dramatic difference in performance. A good liquid cooling setup with a high cfm equal intake and exhaust chassis/system fans will result in a high stable overclock. 4.5+ GHz is feasible with the right setup. Any higher you're going need Liquid Nitrogen or Helium. You might as well get two Xeon CPUs if you want more processing power. Thermal Paste can make a big difference too. It was proven by Benchmark when they tested 80 different pastes... etc... Overall a custom cooling system should be well thought out before jumping into the nitty gritty. :P
