    As long as the oil doesn't conduct electricity you would be fine. I remember my chemistry teacher telling me about a liquid that looked like water but didn't conduct electricity at all. He said you could throw TVs in there (on) and watch TV in this liquid stuff.

    Not sure if the oil actually does anything, more an experiment to see if the computer will actually run while submersed

    The oil dissipates heat and is the cooling. Most of the high voltage transformers (hanging on tele poles & others) that power the world are oil cooled.

    Nice but ugly way for quiet PC.

    ok i got the answer, a certain kind of purified oil can and will cool a computer. This technique is very effective but harddrives, optical drives, and powersupplies ill short out and do damage if they are submersed. If you are interested a substance called Fluorinert is the most effective but is also very expensive at $500/gallon. Otherwise 100% Pure Mineral Oil will work nicely but any comtamiants such as fragrances or colorings will short out your system. And always test the fluid for capacitance with a multimeter.

    Immersion cooling is only for electronics never drives or psus!!

    That should cover any questions. If more questions google it.
