That's very tempting to play with, perfect for a living room PC.

I read an article about a guy that did that, you can put everything in the oil except the harddrive and just used regular case fan's to circulate the oil. According to his article he was running the computer as a linux server for over a year and had removed parts and added new parts, all were still working after he removed them.

Oil transfers heat better than air, so it will keep the whole system cooler as long as you are sure you don't use a conductive oil or an oil that will go bad.

Your fans have to be brushed, or was that brushless, the opposite of the normal fans. Reason being they gum up and cause problems. Also, like the toms one, about a week after you take the components out of the oil they will rust up. Or so they said.

without clicking any links - oil as a heat-transfer medium - the key is to cool the oil. Did they have some kind of oil cooler (like, say, your car's radiator) running as well? Otherwise the system will heat the oil faster than the air in the surrounding environment will cool it.

no it actually worked really well until the oil itself started affecting the components...(well for the toms one at least.)
