I wasn't quite sure where to put this, so into Off-Topic it goes. Move away, mods, if this is better in Hardware Help or something.
Ever wanted to cool down your system and shock your friends? Just build yourself a fully sealed case and dump in 8 gallons of cooking oil.
Yes, you heard that right:http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/01/09/strip_out_the_fans/
Common sense dictates that submerging your high-end PC in cooking oil is not a good idea. But, of course, engineering feats and science breakthroughs were made possible by those who dared to explore the realms of the non-conventional. Members of the Munich-based THG lab are only too happy to confirm this fact. And not only did we find that our AMD Athlon FX-55 and GeForce 6800 Ultra equipped system didn't short out when we filled the sealed shut PC case with cooking oil--but the non-conductive properties of the liquid coupled created a totally cool and quiet high-end PC, devoid of the noise pollution of fans. The PC case - or should we say tank - also offered a new and novel way to display and show off your PC components.
Read away. You'll be shocked, awed, and amazed. And wonder why exactly Tom's Hardware thought of this in the first place.
