    I was just thinking if everything is in oil how does that affect spinning speed of the fans?? do they spin at all? and what is the need for them if everything is in oil? heatsinks are not enough?

    Sorry if these are some stupid questions, but I am a complete n00b when it comes to water or oil cooling...

    Water chiller?

    I would love to know if a water chiller would be a viable (and better) alternative to the radiators. Not sure if chillers use PVC, which would obviously cause a problem, but if they coudl handle the oil, it seems like this system is a perfect target for its use - large reservoir for high specific heat, no danger of condensation. Get bit-tech to send you their review unit!

    Unfortunately I don't think Bit-tech gives out their review units. Anyway, water would still condense on the inside of my tank if it got cold enough. (On the top and the sides above the oil level.

    Utterly stunning! Although I'd be slightly terrified having that oil around me, in a relatively warm environment! ;)
