Many computer geeks out there know that an entire PC submerged in oil will still continue to run, but how many of us have actually seen one ourselves? Here’s one project by Puget Systems who managed to completely submerge a working PC in mineral oil within a perfectly sized fish tank!

The idea of having an entire PC submerged in oil I guess would be considered an alternate form of liquid cooling. While it looks pretty extreme, all I can say is that I’m pretty impressed that it actually works.

First of all, the computer parts will never, ever get dusty. I can recall the instances where I had to open up my casing to get rid of the dust settled within for a gazillion years. Secondly the innards of the PC will never rust, although it’s not common to see PC parts rusting but hey, you never know.

Here’s the 5-minute video of the guys pulling off this cool aquarium PC project:

This is a really interesting idea for an oil filled Aquarium PC. I have to take my hat off to the guys who did this crazy thing!
