    bwahahhaaaha:

    "I decided this weekend to try and quiten my PC by following some other members lead and going down the water cooling road. The fans on my PC were really starting to drive me mad

    The first thing that I did was to remove all the fans. The one on the processor and graphics card were no problem but the one in the power unit was a bugger to get out.

    The most difficult part was sealing all the ventilitation openings in the PC case with silicon. I also put silicon all around the joints on the PC case. The smell of silicon was dreadful but when my wife complained I told her to be patent as it will be worth it when we have a completely silent PC.

    Because I had completely sealed the PC case the only opening near top was the DVD drive. So I opened that and put the small hose I had purchased specially for the job into the DVD drive as far as it would go. With what I can only describe as great excitement and anticipation, I turned on the water. It really is amazing just how long it took before the case was complete full, and boy was it heavy. That didn't really bother me as I didn't intend to be moving the PC anyway.

    The big moment had arrived so I called in my wife and mother in law (who was visiting) and I announced "prepare to hear nothing!" and flicked the switch on the socket on the wall.

    Before I could even press the power button on front of the PC, with a loud bang, the whole place was plunged into darkness

    I knew that it was only the tripswitch so I told my onlookers not to panic and I ran out to the hall to turn the trip switch back on. But can u believe it, it wouldn't stay on. After five attempts I decided to try unplugging the PC and would you believe...yes the trip switch stayed on. My conclusion: the PC must have in some way been causing the problem.

    After about an hour of tries I finally decided to abandon the whole idea of water cooling and emptied the water out of the PC, put back in the fans (except the fan in the power unit, I had broken that one getting it out) and tried the pc AGAIN. IT STILL CAUSED THE TRIP SWTICH TO BLOW!

    My PC is completely shagged thanks to stupid suggestions that I got on this forum. What the hell am I going to do now. I spent two hours last night with a hair drier inside the PC case and it still trips the switch.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated

    Conor"

    i bet his wife divorced him.


    "I am actually interested that anybody could still think that this is a wind-up. I mean I'm not a total idiot (as some of your unkind replys would suggest) I did wrap the power supply unit in cling film plastic wrap before I filled it with water"


    teehee

    Yeah, too bad it is though. I mean, I think he could win a prize or something if it was true.

    PHASE 1: The Build

    Electrical components and liquid, not normally a good idea, but recently me and a friend were browsing the interweb and we came along a vegetable oil cooled pc. This spurred us on to try this out for ourselves and consequently write this article :).

    We needed :

    A pc which was surplus

    Vegetable oil (and lots of it)

    A sealed container

    By pure luck around 2 days later a pc arrived in our house that was surplus to anyones requirements and had been saved from being binned (thanks Julie).

    The pc's specs are :

    Pentium 3 450
    128mb ram
    Sis Agp gfx card
    Network card
    10 Gb hard disk

    As you can see, we arent throwing our 3ghz Athlon 64's with Sli into this oil!! After some tinkering the pc had life breathed into it and it booted. perfect.

    Now all we needed was vegetable oil, in a big quantity. A trip to the supermarket provided us with the cheapest we could find £1.75 for 3 litres, so we bought 12 litres. We then went to Wilko and bought a plastic tub big enough to put the motherboard in.
