i wasnt reffering to the fan, i was just mentioning the fact that they sank a power supply and it worked. I kinda assumed that the fans are meant to push air and not oil....but thanks for looking out for me anyway

you might try to actively cool the oil... if the oil tank is made out of aluminum, you could put it into water, which would cool the oil. if you have a waterchiller, add antifreeze and cool your oil to subambient. the oil itself will prevent condensation.

The only way I can see that this "might" work would require that the oil needs to be constantly circulated through a cooling mechanism outside of the aquarium holding the motherboard/components.

Herein lies the problem. You're still stuck with finding some form of heat dissipation for the oil. An oil cooling radiator of some form along with either air-cooling fans blowing across it ... or ... a water-cooled oil radiator ( that would be more efficient ) yet still requires the cooling of the water further on down the line of your loop.

Regardless, you're stuck with the same limitations of current water-cooling setups ... with your ambient air temperature ( your cooling medium in the end ) being the deciding factor.

fill PC with oil as condensation proofing and use phase. -_- ends all problems.
unisolated it also cools the oil.

I'm no expert on Phase, but I believe it's cost ( $400-$1000 ) would keep most peeps away.
Also, I really don't believe that the oil wouldn't freeze like a popsicle with a -30 to -40 degree block of copper placed inside an aquarium of oil.

An excellent idea ... if you can find an oil that can still be viscous at those temperatures.

why would you want to keep it from freezing? it wont freeze the entire aquarium. not unless you just put the hose in there. when connected to the CPU, there isnt much room for heat from the oil to be sucked away too. hopefully just enough to keep it below ambient.
but from what you're saying you dont have the money for phase anyway.
you could try mounting some small TECs with basic heatsinks to the outside of the aquarium, privided its made from metal. those TECs wont cost you much, and with a basc ATX PSU you can feed a few. especially if you run the at 5v. just look around for some passive heatsinks. (dumpster diving?)
