The water doesn't do a whole lot of good unless you are jetting it onto the hot places.

(I still, in no way, endorse this lunacy.)
That's a good idea, using the sinks to overcome the increased heat that insulating the chips from the water would cause.

I'm a little confused.

What is the point in all this if you are not going to let the water touch the board?

Not entirely. shrink wrap around a system would keep water out but if it was done properly (I'm thinking by cutting away the plastic from the chip top and then sealing the edges of the sink to the plastic in a water tight fashion) could let the heat exchange go on without the water getting in. I'd like to see a shot of such a working system.

***edit: but an extra point can't hurt.

I thought it would be the amperage, not the voltage.

if the water did actually touch the board there would be fireworks, the shrink wrap idea is OK..... but i could get a thinner layer using epoxy, thinned and sprayed as dimmreaper suggested. i will probably test the system without fish to start with just to make sure i dont kill anything but myself

This looks like it'll work to me,

Except rather than goldfish, I'd use "Neon Tetras" I'm pretty sure they do well on 12vdc.

Good Luck!

Well, I want to jump on this thread. So far I have lying around, a fish tank, a celeron 433 on a slocket, 128 megs ram, a full atx slot-1 mobo, a 4meg vid card, sound + modem, and a 14 in monitor. So basically a whole computer. I want to do somthing cool with this but mobo is to big to stuff in something cool, like a NES, or such, so I keep looking at the fish tank and the computer parts.

Well, how much do you think it would cost for this to work? And oh yea I forgot, I have a TEC laying around that might be fun.

Hmm.. somewhere I have another cooler looking plexi-glass fish tank with a blue light lying around. If I find that, I don't care how, but I'll be forced to water proof that stuff.

If you, or anyone, is truely intent on trying this submersion nonsense may I suggest you go to your local surplus / fleamarket / whatever place and pay $10 for a complete XT and use that as your test machine. Some of us are still in a position to consider a celeron 433 w/128 ram a viable machine. Don't make me break down and cry now people. If the tests work then you can always go ahead with the celey after.

Yes that is true, I don't really want to lose my celeron 433, about a couple months ago that was my main machine, and about a couple years before that I would have killed for a computer for just half as fast as that.

Your mobo would fit just fine in my next creation. The idea is simple to the point of absurdity. Nobody has done it, that I know of, though. Very trick, very OC. It'll be a while before I give any details.

Apple is not involved IN ANY WAY, I promise. (I know you guys are getting sick of that.)
