Goldfish don't live very well in the warm water...they like it cold...I would choose a more tropical fish and preferrably and edible one, because it sounds like you might end up frying/boiling them

This is a pretty good thread though...I like it.
you would soon be eating your tropical fish if you did that.

Well, what I meant was, won't the water be warmer after it is circulated through the waterblock?
I don't know a whole lot about watercooling, but, won't the water be warmer as it is circulating out of the system?
It will circulate through the system and back into the tank won't it?

yes, hence the getting a stable temp and never turning it off.

compuwife, no waterblock at all! just sit the PC in the water itself!

I'm not endorsing this lunacy in any way, but...

You still would benefit from a heatsink. If you do not use a heatsink, you will have to jet water into the CPU to cool i effectively.

I like the fibreglass resin idea. (I use it to repair gastanks. It is indestructible.)


I tried some experiments like this a while back. Transmission fluid was a decent non-insulated cooant. Brake fluid ate the plastic parts. Water presents several problems.

1) The board and all the cards and connections will have to be completely insulated against the water. This is going to take forever, and will most likely breed heat issues.

2) If you do not use distilled water, you will have corrosion issues.

3) If you use distilled water, it won't be distilled anymore after you airate it or the fish. See # 2.

4) The fish will die. Idle and load temperatures will probably varry enough to kill any fish.

I think you will need to isolate the mobo. If you keep the two areas separate, it will help the fish, and you won' have fish crap on your board.

I am suprised this thread has not returned to the chicken cooling method....

Chicken cooling method?

You really should not discuss our voodoo overclocking rituals in the forum. Who knows who could be reading.

Good idea to put a comp in a fishtank maybe u shoud try putting it in some sort of plastic bag, or something... sealed... the pressure of the water will hold it tight on the pcb's (no air in the bag) I think it wil cool the CPU only with a heatsink and no fan, because the heat will dissipate through the water. - just an idea. Remember boiling water in a paper cup with fire under it? The paper doesn't burn because the water absorbed all the heat from the fire. I think it will work with a CPU as well, but U shoud isolate the cables whwere they get out of the plastic bag. And if it is a large tank, the water on't get too warm for the fish... I had a fish that survived many times from overheat - 60C or so - because the heater was damaged. Just get a healthy one ...

guys its a p233MMX not a modern day hotplate! the thing uses a heatsink no more beefy than the one on my 8KHA+ northbridge, it wont heat the water up much at all! im perfectly happy to waterproof the whole board....... since it wont be coming apart again ill probably just spray the whole thing (except the CPU surface) with epoxy with a spray gun as dimmreaper said.

anyone know if a cdrom can function submerged?

No, and a hard drive can't either. Tell ya what... why don't you just whack the CPU with a hammer, and save yourself some time?

wait a sec! i can make a HDD work underwater....... just pressurize it! then water CANT get in! CDROM is a little harder tho, cos needs to be openable.... i could waterproof the case itself, and have a hole in the tank woth the bezel protruding so i can load cd's

and before anyone says it, ill filter the air going into the drive VERY VERY well

Ya think so? *L*

Make sure you get pics, cause I don't think you'll be hitting that power switch more than once.

Do this please; once you get everything in the fish tank, including water, please be recording it on video and post it so we can see the chaos that ensues.

lol, but that would be evidence the insurance company might hold against him should that video fall into the wrong hands or be found after the 4 alarm fire
