Isnt very...this is a constant you wouldnt want to mess with. Even .0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% is still conductive, regardless if its not exactly 100%.

Exactly, if the water is 100% pure, it can conduct electricity. The computer, the case, and the air would contaminate the water very quickly making the project dangerous.

Nice to see this forums still provides some sanity over cheap ass suggestions over distilled.
People using distilled water had nothing but report problems.
Even when a small stain gets on surface a hole hell breaks loose. Use some nice dyed coolant and the stains will not show.

you dont use distilled water as a total imersion coolent to be CHEAP.. you do it to show that you dont mind risking your 2K+ of electronics to the smallest contamination in the water!

It has been just over a week now since I started the LEAK test. Nothing has escaped, except evaporated water. I could put my components in, but I am going to wait until I get a damn 1155 CPU

Alright guys, I am very sorry but I lost interest in this project a long time ago but recently had the urge to tinker with it. My main problem was that the 90 degree plastic barbed elbows were leaking. I need to use copper or brass fittings. Can someone find ones that have long thread so they can go all the way through the side wall?

This would work perfect but its not 90 degrees....

Whats size and pitch are the threads? Where you say go all the way through do you mean so you can put a nut on the back side?

Such an interesting idea. I am excited to see the end product.

Well right now I'm using the G1/4 thread. I don't need it to go all the way through but I'd like it to be better bite than 3 threads deep. It would be nice it I could fit an O ring and a nut on that back side but I don't think it's necessary.

I'd poke around your local hardware store then. The plumber aisle should have it if it's a bigenough store.
