Its not the "sticking it into the oil" that you have to worry about. Its the "taking it out of the oil" you need to worry about. He took out his old MOBO and it wouldnt post...its a few pages back.

You can stick it in, just be careful about when you pull it out.... oh that should be a signature quote right there biggrin.gif

Iv had my Fans in my computer on everything, have not had a problem, there ball bearing fans, and with he oil on them they never get hot enough to burn.

Seems like an exciting project and I'm the type that would just go ahead and throw my sig rig into something like this.

And the article mentioned something about the aggressiveness of the oil. That motor oil would have been better suited than cooking oil. Baby oil sounds like it should be fine. It's just mineral oil, right?

And what of an oil flow? You have to keep the oil circulating in this right?

I'll be watching your progress. Should be fun.

With the CPU Chipset heat sinks and GPU's it is not needed to Seal them off. not only me but Puget Systems a computer company have had the systems in oil for quite some time and the thermal paste has had no negative affect with the oil.

Motor Oil will be dark and not fun to see. lol

As for oil flow yes it is helpful to have oil flow. especially going threw a transmission oil cooler, get a fish stone that allows air to flow threw it that would look cool, and provide your movement if you feel to take fans out.

Update:
I got the new mobo in. Haven't had a chance to give it an oil bath yet, however I did push my AMD 5200+ from 2.6GHz to 3.4GHz @ a vcore of 1.475, and that's on air.

We've had some crazy low temperatures in the area lately and my oil on my deck is nice and chilly at about 3 degrees Fahrenheit...so tomorrow I'll make a run for as high as I can get the chip!

I was able to achieve a 3544.95 MHz Overclock (almost a full 1GHz than the stock 2.6!).
Proof: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1614489

Any suggestions on how to boost it any higher? My temps are fine:

Computer bathed in oil outside with current temps at 20 degrees Fahrenheit.

Volt mod volt mod volt mod...Only thing I can say, I have never owned an AMD CPU. Just make sure all the unneeded settings are turned off. And pour some voltage onto it.

I don't know if you mentioned this in one of your posts, but did you cut an intake hole for your tub outside? you have your exhaust with the funnel I saw, but you might get better temps due to the lack of flow... If you do have an intake then just wanted to say GREAT JOB!!! Very interesting!!
