    I read it was just plain old veg oil, just to prove that it didn't need anything special, and I'm not sure how cool it got, but apparently it was dead silent, except for the HD's

    Maybe be too thick, then again, maybe a more powerful pump might do it?

    If the computer gets hot enough to where it starts boiling the oil, you've got a lot more serious concerns ;)

    Oil that boils at approximately 40 degrees Celcius will do perfectly.

    It looks like some off-the-shelf transformer oil to me. I give it two months before it has taken all plasticizer out of the PVC and many other plastic components. Next time some one touches anything it will fall apart.

    no no no!!!

    ok this hase been done before, this idea hase been around for age's and it still sucks. the pump you need to move the oil with would draw about 4 to 6 amp's now if you hade a pump like that hooked to your water pump you would never see the temp rize...and yes i have not just red about the oil comp i used one for about a month but when i found out how much it cost to run it there was just no point....hope this helps some of you new guys/girls well maybe one 1girl out there....good luck and happy moding

    Hi

    the viscosity of the oil is FAR to high to run in a normal watercooling loop without investing in a better/more powerful pump

    im tempted to do this with an older PC, but im debating using a different method, going along with using some of the non-conductive water stuff (pleurocarbon or something) and have a waterloop that isnt just a loop, so basically its normal air cooling, but instead of fans have the non-conductive water being sprayed over the heatsinks, will be more for fun than for seriousness!!! would be cool to make an oil running pc ;) just for a laugh, ive got loads of old p3/p2 stuff im not using ;)
