Yes, I enclosed the water with a different chamber with acrylic/plexi glass. So true, that there are a lot of oil cooled pc but there is nothing like this one I have seen. Water cooled procie and there are real live fishes in the tank.

Very nice, i was actually considering doing something similar with my oil submerged rig, i was either going to use a couple cold water fish or a single fighting fish.

would something like this be feasible on a larger scale? A rack of servers maybe, with an outside-of-building radiator? Does anyone know of any coolant that can be used which is easier to clean off components than oil?

LN2 overclockers have been spraying boards with liquid electrical tape... Maybe this new product will be cleaner... Or easier to clean off?

would this spray interfere with any of the electrical contacts on the submerged components though? I still need to be able to modify the system after it has been water proofed.
