What happens when the oil gets hot? With an air cooled system, the heat is pushed out the back. Once the oil gets hot, I can see some issues arising!

My other concern with that is ...how does the PSU extract air? I can understand making the entire case watertight but making a PSU watertight...

Looks funky though

The PSU isn't immersed in oil, and nor is the hard disk/optical drive.

The case was sealed to prevent any messy leaks.

The PSU doesn't need to be watertight at all because non-conductiove oil was used, and so the motherboard and vid card didn't need to be made "water tight" either

If you used an air to oil cooler, or a brake fluid cooler, with the setup, it could work nicely.

Someone did a nice job of a highly viscus oil submersion, with a liquid to liquid radiator, running the oil from the tank through the primary channel, and a direct hose from the kitchen tap in one end, and out the other into the drain.

He had extremely cold tap water chilling the whole thing, and found it worked quite well as the oil has a great sinking effect on the entire mobo.

so could you have a water cooled system that just ran off of flowing water from your tap. no need for pumps

Yea, easily. Pipe straight from the tap, through a waterblock, and down the drain. If you have untreated / non-drinking water like we often do in Australia, its a good option.

Keep two things in mind though. On hot days, the water that first comes through the cold water tap can be very hot, as it is heated underground. And also, if you run hot water through it by mistake, don't expect your chip to run long.
