While im gonna get paid in a couple weeks and I out of the blue decided I want to submerge my pc in mineral (probobly) oil in an aquairium. Any tips, suggestions for a different oil? Ive seen the video done by pudget custom computers, and read a couple stories about it, and Ive decieded that unless there is a massive change in my mind im gonna do it.
Hardware Im gonna suberger
Intel DQ965CO Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E6380 1.86 ghz
4 Gigs Buffalo DDDR2 677
Nvidia Geforce 8600gt
Yeah I know its not the best hardware around, but hey its hardware.

Just read the link, and WOW! what a great idea.

As for it not being the best hardware - I wouldn't want to try an experiment like this with expensive stuff until I knew for sure what I was doing.

I wonder if a regular fish tank filter would clean up the 'mirky' issue?

I wonder if a good liberal application of silicon or something would prevent that problem of oil wicking up the cables?

Can't think of another oil to use, as anything else I can think of would be colored or spoil or both.

Jacomb938, I new about that link, thats the one i got my idear from
well, i may make some changes to the pc, theres a athalon x2 3.something ghz with asus mobo on craigslist for $100! So when I get a hundred im gonna get that if he still has it, so I can use the atx fromfacter instead of crappy microbtx, then Ill have a decent wow rig to bring to my freinds.
Ooh goody I found a motherboard tray, if anyone can find anything cheaper or would like to donate one (worth a try asking right) be my guest
