Would submerging pc in distilled water - Page 2  

post #11 of 57
Even if it's non conductive... The grease or whatever you use will get in the way, such has in PCI slots, in the CPU socket... and would reduce if not prevent a device from being connected properly, also, you would break your motherboard speaker and much more I'm sure... It's a good way to make a 100feet high fountain however (for like 10 seconds).

distilled water is still semi-conductive. not AS conductive as regular tap water, since it has its impurities, but it'll still short your board. mineral oil, or cooking oil, on the other hand is non-conductive and will work, since it conducts heat but not electricity. however, i wouldnt do it, since youd have a hell of a time cleaning that rig of yours. lol not to mention the hassle of moving the pc

wouldnt it leave all the computer parts sticky if you clean with cooking/mineral oil?

Well after watching a video on youtube of some guys put there setup inside a aquarium and fill it with mineral something, forgot what it was, and start it up and overclock with LOWWWWWWWWW temps, i cant say it cant be done its just not a smart move

Even the PSU was summerged with all the fans barely spinning, crazy stuff.
Meh.

distilled water still has enough amounts of Natrium and chloride in it that it would have a slight conductivity within the system which would definitely fry the system. You could probably try and use deionized water using a high efficiency micropore membrane system for continuous filtration of ions which conduct electricity allright but that costs like 10000pcs price.

I am betting that running a pc in a room with a very low wet bulb temperature would be the best bet for low temps on the cpu.

conclusion: not recommended immersion in distilled water.

After watching that youtube video i posted up there, makes me want to run a computer in an aquarium! Ive been thinking of a case mod that was different for a room ive made for me and my mates to hang out in. Computer in an aquarium.. doesnt get much more unique than that! That rules! So trying it!
