My son made a water cooled PC about 7-8 years ago... put in some kind of circulating tubes and pump and it cooled the CPU... damnest thing I ever saw !! I have a photo somewhere ! He even used anti-freeze in the liquid to reduce corrosion .
These guys are waaay behind the curve. I remember a guy doing this when the internet was all dial up and while I was living in my last house... so probably close to 20 years ago. His handle was "Dr. Freeze" and he submerged his mobo into mineral oil.
Not comparing the scale... just that this tech has been around for a long time. Mineral oil is the choice for submerging. Surprised that it has taken this long.
Dr Freeze wasn't trying to save energy though... this was back when puters were still wicked slow and he liked to overclock his chip and needed a way to keep them from overheating. Probably why the few references to him are on overclocker forum pages.
