ok so i have a test i wan't to try i have just discoverd that you can drop a whole pc in mineral oil with out it complaining and mineral oil transfer heat 10 times better than air. I have always wanted to do a TEC cooler but was worried about moister getting to the motherboard. Mineral Oil should solve that problem mineral oil can be cooled well below freezing it doesn't get thick untill it hits below -10f. I plan to keep the oil around 40f with a external cooler there will be spray nozzels on the return side pumping cool oil directly on the CPU heatsink, northbridge, memory, and GPU. I need some input from some people that have done tec cooling am i waisting my time what kinda temps can i reach and how big of a TEC do i need and how about an overload system so the TEC won't cook my CPU. Regardless how the oil will work im going to do it just because it looks cool i wish i could put fish in there with it.
