Why use WATER when there's COOKING OIL

Postby ThEvil0nE » Thu Jan 12, 2006 8:01 am

the large volume of liquid guarantees absolutely silent operation - no fans are running. And even under maximum load the three major building blocks remain sufficiently cool: processor, graphics card and chipset.

Ok then... I would have bacon or coffee extract with it :mb_laugh5::

Wow, I've wondered if a sealed case with some sort of gas would be any good, but I've never considered that.


Actually though it brings up a good idea. A graphics card could easilly be made in which the GPU and ram were contained in a sealed section, I'm sure something better than cooking oil could be produced. Possibly a small heatsink contained within the fluid with fins passing through the chamber. Probably wouldn't be any good, would need to be a specially built SLI unit using the whole area for the chamber.

If you want to flee the daily routine and have long seen enough of everyday modding junk, this trulyunique DIY project should offer some excitement in your life.

Interesting experiment. But, as noted in the article, there are risks.

Thanks for the fun read.

the only problem using any oil it will degrade with heat and a lot of cooking are bio degradable. water is not degraded by heat nor is it biodegrable

Tom's Hardware just has the most fascinating articles don't they? One question though, does cooking oil attract ants? I remember hearing that from someone, but wasn't sure if it was true or not. I always thought they were only attracted to sugar, but then again, I've never been a big fan of insects.

I dont think cooking oil is a good idea, not very chemically stable. Engine oil or brake fluid wont degrade with heat.

why dose engine oil go black and go fin it heat that cause it and its changed at every service, brake fluid degrates , my cause is water in the atomosphere , and is changed at every 60000 mile service

that why car manufacture recommend regular changes of both

I meant the synthetic DOT 5 brake fluid, not the hydroscopic DOT 4, sorry for not clarifying.

Engine oil goes black, caused by all the gunk that it washes out of the cylinders, and microscopic bits of metal etc. The very high temperatures in the combustion chamber may burn or alter some of the oil changing its colour, especially if its non synthetic. However this is at many hundreds of degrees, nothing on a computer will run at anything close to those temps.
