Title's pretty much the whole story.
I've been thinking of building a custom system, and thought it would be cool to build a mineral oil submerged system.
Here's generally what it will be like:
The main computer system will be in a 18" tall mid-tower sized transparent mineral oil tank, sitting on top of a 6" vented matte black box to bring it up to a full tower size.
virtually all components of the computer will reside in the mineral tank, and behind the motherboard will like the condenser coils taken from a portable fridge. the condenser itself will lie in the black box, along side spinning hard drives (due to them needing ventilation for atmospheric ventilation)
the black box will have some sort of sound insulation, though it would probably be very hard to muffle the condenser when it kicks in.
All inputs/outputs will be snaked down to the back of the black box, primarily to make future upgrades easier. I'd probably place disk drives on the front of this box.
lots of LEDs, possibly ones that are controlled by the OS.
There will be fans circulating the oil to the condenser around back. I'd love to add something to the oil (such as sparkles) that help reveal the movement of the oil, but I don't know what that won't clog fans.
There will be a means of working on the system, which means a gasket where the box meets the case, and some form of drain.
Thoughts? or is this too complex?
