[Frontpage News]Goodbye Fans - Hello Oil

Tom's Hardware Guide takes and gets rid of the fans in their PC and adds 8 gallons of cooking oil to make a totally silent PC.  If you don't think it can be done, you've got to take a look - it's pretty remarkable and makes me wonder why I haven't tried this earlier.  Very interesting stuff for sure.

That is one sweet idea.  Very cool stuff.

Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".

we saw a similar rig at fragapalooza, he actually had the non-conductive oil in a case though

its a great idea though, it would definately be silent
