Would submerging pc in distilled water - Page 4  

post #31 of 57
I submerged my PC in beer last night as well as myself, well maybe not submerged but accidently doused.........i can report that it had no positive effect on my cooling. It did make the case a bit sticky though.

You CAN use water which is constantly circulated through a DI cartridge via a strong pump. De-Ionizing cartridges remove all of the electrically conductive substances from the water. You should make the loop airtight because airborne substances will contaminate the water causing potential conductivity. Absolutely pure H20 does not conduct low voltages at all.

WARNING: Do not try this at home. I am not affiliated with this concept and am presenting it purely for entertainment purposes.

Yeah, I agree with the mineral oil. If you can, don't use vegetable oil... the heat begins to chemically separate the oil and... ...you end up having to replace it often. Dun dun dun. Also, mineral oil is clear and less viscous... should be a little easier on the fans if you decide to dip your power supply in there as well. Just do us a favor... don't use distilled water. Lol, another threat not added is the potential oxidation issue and algae/bacterial growth. But those wouldn't be your primary problems. Lol. Good luck!

From the website it provides at the end of the puget systems video.

The system under load was a different story. We started 3DMark06 looping, and watched the temperatures climb. It took a really long time. After an amazing 12 hours, the system topped out with a CPU temperature of 88C. Yes, that is really hot...on the other hand, the system was rock solid and didn't crash when running 3DMark06 for 48 hours at these temperatures. While you could add some radiators and pump the oil through to cool it, you realistically would not be gaming constantly for 12 hours, so these temperatures are as extreme as it gets for this system.

HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT.

YES PLEASE!!!! All these kids who get these ideas I hate bashing it into their heads that its not a good idea, get water cooling or phase change, they're both way better anyways!

An important thing to consider is that ions from the metal do eventually dissolve into the de-ionized water, and any dust, oxidation, or grease used has the potential to contain electrically conductive particles. In the short term, if the PCB does not structurally fail due to water, in the long term you have the contaminants to worry about.
