Funky Kit - Gigabyte GOOC 2010 Finals - Mineralised Oil + LN2 Cooling

A short video of MikeGuava running his "no insulation" LN2 system at GOOC WW 2010. This must be one of the most innovative ways I've ever seen someone compete at a live overclocking competition!

Some kind of transformer oil I would guess. I've used VoltWay N7X to cool a whole computer once. http://www.statoillubricants.com/mar/lu/sto00131.nsf/UKProductsWeb/voltwayn7x/$FILE/Statoil_VoltWay_N7X.pdf

I wonder why it isn't completely submerged... nu need to insulate the cpu-pot, and no need to do the vga-card aswell. Guess the oil could freeze too, but would that be a too bad thing?

Have thought about doing it... Not sure I would like the cleanup.. Vaseline is bad enough... mix that with some eraser... yuck..

United States Splave says:

its like water, think you would just shake it off and let it evaporate after use? http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/electronics/home/productsandservices/products/chemicals/ElectronicLiquids/
