    It is amazing to me how many people do not know that oil of any kind does not conduct electricity.

     the fans are in the just to circulate the oil and keep the oil moving cause i didnt want cold and hot spot in there, the only thing i didnt submerge was the harddrive because it will ruin the hd (tested myself definitly DO NOT submerge a HD in oil)

    So it actually runs? If the oils keeps everything cool, why the need for fans too?

     This pc acually does run in the oil and keeps it quite cool for a very long time. i didnt put it in oil for the heat tho it was just cause of all the noise the system makes now it makes zero noise

    no PC's can run in oil, keeps them cooler. Doesnt seem like a system that would need to be cooled that much. Celeron D's were slow as sh*t....

    I'll ask the obvious, is the PC actually running inside all that oil? No, can't be. The oil would instantly short everything out. This is just to make a pretty fish tank, right?
