No, except you would destroy your system. Distilled water is slightly electrically conductive. When expossed to air and metal, it becomes more conductive.
Once again...

some liquids don't conduct electricity

but still bad idea to submerge your PC
post #9 of 57
Mineral Oil is actually the best because it's a very viscous liquid (compared to any other cooking oil) and it won't conduct. You just need to get a big radiator and a good pump to circulate the oil around your tank.

Don't use cooking oil though... it goes bad and starts to stink. Mineral oil will not.

Did you get this from my laptop tea thread?

No don't do it. You can clean componenets with distilled water when they're off, and let them dry completely before turning them on. Never stick running electronics in any sort of water, distilled or not.
