    My Mineral Oil PC

    I've seen these great videos on Youtube about making an Aquarium PC using Mineral Oil. The concept of a computer being soaked in any kind of liquid is so intruiging to me, so I have to try it. Fortunately, I have all of the internal components so I really just need the tank and Mineral oil.

    Specs are:

    Foxconn Motherboard
    Intel Q9400
    2GB DDR2
    550 Watt PSU

    I'm using a GeForce 6600 becuase my 3800 X2 was too long fit in this tank

    I brought the tank to work and filled it with Mineral oil and it all works fine







    The only thing that scares me is the temperature. After 6 hours of being on the glass surface is very hot. Here's the core temp reading:

    would it be possible to have an external radiator setup to cool the oil?

    You could use one of those plug in oil heaters for the radiator?


    And a desk fan or two to cool it.

    It's always neat to see a Mineral Oil build. But I agree, the temps seem to be too dang high. There has to be a cooling solution for this, otherwise it's not nearly as effective as an air aspirated machine. I unfortunately have no experience with this yet and can't offer advice. But I can follow you and hope to learn!

    we came down here from Minnesota, and I had the opportunity to spend some time with Ken today and his Bulldozer PC, and this one. TheGreatSatan is a great guy, felt bad bugging him while he was working but we had a lot to talk about lol. Was fantastic getting to see his mods in person. First time I got to review a oil cooled PC, quite the learning experience. I did not get enough time with him unfortunately ( I had hauled my brood with me and they were impatient, bastards). If you are ever passing through St. Louis, stop in and take a look at his mods and say Hi.
