glyserol (sp)
Its with out a dout nonconductive i had considered this very same thing well sort of my thought was to pump chilled mineral oil or glycerol directly over the core.
Um, you do realise that pure glycerol melts at 17.8ÂșC?

Makes it kinda difficult to chill :nervous:

And just because I got much love, here is the site using Alta Vista's Babel Fish. From French to English. Enjoy it.

mineral oil eats the rubber gaskets in capacitors, i wouldn't bother with mineral oil.

avoiding moisture

you can build a moisture filter, if you are just afraid of condensation. 1st step is to make a box about the size of a case fan, but about twice as long. Get some screen with really small holes, and put the case fan inside the box with a filter. Next throw some screen in next to the fan. Follow it up by filling the rest of the box with silica gel (you get little packets of it w/ new pairs of shoes, it looks like little hard balls) which you can buy at chemical stores, and some autoparts stores. Install it so it blows air into your case, and plug it in. When the air runs through the silica, it removes and stores ALL the water. Once every 3 months or so, take the silica jel out, put it on a cookie sheet, and bake it in the oven for a few minutes to remove the stored water and reactivate it. I have used a similar design to dry out carpets in flooded homes (about a 1 gallon bucket full of silica will dry a carpeted living room completely in about 12 hours)

All this talk just gave me a variant idea: Why not take what would be basically a water setup, apply some modifications for the different properties of mineral oil, and run the oil throught the system instead, it wouldn't have the "coolness" of a tank submerged system but if an inert fluid leaked inside the computer you wouldn't blow out your machine.

I did think about doing that.

There are a few problems.

1-pumpingthe oil is difficult..you need an expensive pump.

2-oils SHC is lower than water...so its not as good.

I figured it would be easyer to make a watercooling system that didnt leak.

Althought even if it does leak, water doesnt kill stuff! just dry it off and all is well
