Cooking Oil - Page 3

post #21 of 49
Hmmmm...there are a couple of things you could do.....you could build your own case using some sort of acrylic type material. I would use Lexan and make it quite thick, somewhere in the neigborhood of 11MM (1" roughly). The reason I say lexan is because it is quite resistant to oil damage and because it is easy to find at any glass place, but it is a bit more expensive than run-of-the-mill acrylic. I also chose it because you can get it in a thickness that allows for more area to affix joints, and therefore more surface area for silicone or sealant.

I would make my own adhesive using Acetone, M.E.K. (Methyl-ethyl-ketone) and lexan shavings. Use approx 1 tablespoon of acetone for every ounce of MEK. You can add shavings to your desired consistance and let the things melt together overnight. once you design the case, adhere the joints using your adhesive and seal with silicone sealant if desired, then cut off the excess to avoid making it look sloppy.

I would keep the Optical drives, Harddrives, Floopies, and PSU seperate from the Oil, as CyberDruid Said, and create a "oilpan" that will only fit the mobo, cards, and a large surface area cooler on the proc (xp-120 comes to mind).

You can sleeve the wires in Clearflex tubing so that they have a flat, sealable surface with which to thread through holes to oilpan that can be sealed with rubber grommets and silicone sealant.

For cooling, i wouldn;t use a pump, as most oils are prone to mechanical shearing and you don;t often have pumps that would withstand the viscosity of the fluid. I would use a couple High torque, low rotation electric motors with large bladed impellers to circulate the oil, which could be cooled with refrigeration lines running through the oil. Using a small AC unit condensor comes to mind. But there's a start. Experiment with the conductivity of Motor oils (esp synthetic) and different dielectric oils to determine what you may want....don;t use cookign oil. It'll go ranceid on you....

My honest opinion to this, its not worth it yeah it makes ur mobo cpu cool but making that much mess? and incase sumting happens u have to drain all that oil and clean it and make sure that oil dont go inside the proc socket. its just not worth the trouble.. stick with conventional air, water or phaze change. and onemore thing u have to considr when u use oil. if ur room gets really cold and u turn if off, that oil will harden, gunk so count me out on this oil cooling thing

My PC would be on 24/24 7/7.

I'm not thinking to much about overclocking, so I might just end up using room temp oil + so fans to create a current.

edit : Btw, this is for fun. I know that it's not what one should do on a rig that he plans on using for a while, but I'll have a new laptop in 6 months and probably a new rig in 2 years. So having 3 computers is more than I need .. if ever it doesnt' work out .. I won't lose to much and I'll have other computers to work on temporarily (until I repair that one).

well being an auto mechanic and knowing that some transmissions have internal computers, like those of the chrysler mini vans. gettin oil in the socket wont hurt it. oil is not a conductor. also consider cars with in the tank fuel pumps. gas is nuthin but refined oil. ive also tested this theory. ive taking a mother board and completely soaked it in water over night. removed it then let dry completely and still works today.u can basically put your mobo in the dish washer if you so choose to. just make sure its dried completly. the only thing that damages a mobo is water on a powered system. which causes it to short out..the only thing u might have a problem with is trying to sell the parts that are soaked in oil. you can also clean the parts with alcohol. make sure its completly dry before applying power to the system. oil is a high absorbant of heat. and consider u would have a dustless system. 5 w 30 motor oil starts to thicken at freezing temps. cooking oil is about 5 times thinner.

I would guess oil would put more strain on you motor .. be carefull. It might kill your motor faster. Only a logical guess with limited background knowledge though.

i suggest the X-clear acrylic case from xoxide. its a good case and i was looking at the edges and it would be easy to seal those.

I thought of using a cooler lol. Though it would be ugly ..

I think I'll stick with aircooling and change when I get enough money.
