To demonstrate the cooling power of the Sub-Zero Liquid Chilled System, Digital Storm removed the CPU water block and left it for 10 minutes. A thick layer of frost began to form as the chilled liquid dropped the temperature on the copper to below freezing point


Nice, Ice and water is exacly what I want forming on my expensive and delicate electronics! Granted its without and heat load on the system, but its been possible to cool below zero before, but the problem is the danger of water buildup around the electronics, either ice or at the ambient dew point.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dew_point

Its been done before years ago using gas phase change refrigeration systems (like your freezer basically). This one users a combination of water and peltier coolers, so good luch with the power draw, clever but the power consumption will be considerable.

Dont know if they still exist but look up cryotech cases.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peltier_effect#Peltier_effect

PC's desperately need to evlove towards higher efficiency and lower thermal output, its getting ridiculous now. Its possible too but with higher costs or lower production yields, its just the current grade of components we get sold represents the best profit at a certain level or reliability and market price.

Its not uncommon to find electronics and electrics like motors in non conductive mineral oil filled pressure compensation vessels on ROV systems.

www.seaeye.com/jaguar.html

The oil is good for heat conduction/cooling as well as providing a better medium to stand high pressures at depth than air :) If youve ever opened a compatt thats been pressurised down on the bottom say a 1000m or 2000m down lol, fireworks got nothing on these if some dope forgets to check the pressure relief valve before releasing the end collar! :woohoo: wooomf, several kilos of metal, synthetics and electronics out of the end of a big pressure cannon.

You often find oil in subsea systems, such as the housings for the articulated sonar heads (although there are acoustic reasons too), like the Tritech Sonar heads here www.ashtead-technology.com/us/Offshore/C.../SonarSystemsSG.html - which incidentally are a common thing to have to fix, theyre murder for getting crunched being mounted up front on ROV 's

I didnt think anyone would be daft enough to try with veg oil, will smell lovely with all that heat after a couple of weeks and being exposed to bacteria and fungi in the air lol, does it come with a nosepeg for long term operation. It wouldnt be hard to get the correct oil and do this properly ;)
