has anyone ever built one of these?

http://www.pugetsystems.com/submerged.php

ive been meaning to for a while, collecting parts and researching, but yesterday my computer at the house finally went into full meltdown (bios, reboot, bios, reboot) and if I'm gonna be putting together a new computer i thought i might as well go with something like this. i use my computer as an HTPC, or you could say i use my tv as a monitor and this is suppose to be almost silent. does anyone have any experience with these?

First time I've seen them...thanks...only drawback I can see is swapping or upgrading parts...you have to dry everything off (or get wet doing the swap)...

Upside would be -- no dust bunnies...

Let us know if you proceed...

What I can't figuire out why anyone would generate enough heat to worry about such things....

Unless they are doing the old "spending thousands to make an AMD system
out-perform the intel system they should've built in the first place"

And AMD's seem to always seem to run hot.

any particular place we should be looking there?
The whole site is awesome if your into PC's. If you want to see crazy ways of cooling a PC check out the extreme cooling and benchmarking sections.

Bit tech gave a mineral oil submerged pc a full review including their torture test a few years back. Iirc they tested out several different oils and posted up the results along side conventional cooling methods as well as a few other not so conventional methods.

It's really not at all practical or needed. It's a neat idea but other cooling methods will work as good or better without the mess.
