and then get ridiculed like dell...thats all dell tries to do then we go

However, theoretically, it is possible to actually do what he tried. For those who paid attention in chemistry the day they had "the lightbulb tester" lesson (what it's known as at my school), 100% pure water (a.k.a distilled) is for all purposes non-conductive. It'll become conductive when ions dissociate in it (i.e you pour in 25g of NaCl [table salt]), or if you just leave it out on the counter for a while (not because anything dissolves, but because a small portion of the water molecules themselves ionize). Once this happens, it becomes conductive.

So if you can keep ions from dissolving in the water, you could potentially just submerge everything. However, let's just say there's a lot of ions out there.
Yup, we already know this.... however, there stangely seems to be a lot of metal inside PCs. Metals are very good at giving up free ions. In addition, there is dust and impurities. Even if you used 100% pure water in a clean room on a clean PC, it wouldn't work.
Once again...

That was a great read. That guy fooled A LOT of people. One of the mods said that they had 20,000 new registrations just telling him that he was an idiot? Just wow!

This guy didn't actually do this, did he?

If you think that was stupid search "oil pc" at google images and tons of people pour oil into their computers and take out all the fans. It might take temperatures down a little but I dont think its worth making your computer smell like bacon

Most metals, yes. However, if you were to make the case out of something like silver, gold, or platinum (none of which ionize readily), that could do it. Then just give the case a really good clean.

Thanks for the Rep Choggs.

Here is the quote that almost killed me laughing:

Quote:
Personally Comer rather than just going for the water cooling I think you should had powered you PC by natural gas too. You could take one of the 1 inch diameter pipes someone else mentioned and shoved it up the ass of the nearest cow. We do have quite a few in the emerald isle.

Comer if you are a city dweller without access to cows, cats and dogs will do the same job although, you may need to set us as many as twenty of these in parallel as they just dont produce much gas. Feeding them a diet of Beans and cabbage does help considerably!

And... how about the metal contained in the video card, motherboard, RAM, and CPU? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? Also, you still need heatsinks to help transfer the heat into the water. So how about the metal there?


Also, think about what you just said.... Who would make a case out of silver, gold, or platinum just to fill it with water?

^ heh. I also liked this one:

Where you went wrong was this : with this method you need to have a return pipe to ensure a steady flow of nice cool water, as you have found just filling the pc case just isn't enough and will result in rapid overheating!!

Although your method works fine with a pj though, esp those noisy lcd ones...in fact having a fish tank full of water suspended from the roof with the pj dropped inside makes for quite an intersting talking point , helps to get anamorphic display from a 4:3 panel without paying £700 for a panamorph lens- see avsforums as they did have a few threads on this before they were deleted, too much competiton for the panamorph manufacturers I think, just think what they would do if this info got out!

Just think, the tank would suppress the noise and you could even put in a few luckly fish in the tank as long as they are trained not to get in the way of the light beam when the pj is playing there shouldn't be any problem.

I did have one of those mini octopus in mine but it kept doing unspeakable things with the lens and offending our guests - so it had to go
