Oil Cooled Computer

Post by joshuahilburn on 26th February 2010, 1:34 am

I was wondering if a oil cooled computer actually worked. If so how good does it work, does it actually help cool your pc, and can it ruin your hardware on your computer? Please provide links on the subject if possible. Thanks!

Actually, it is a special type of paste that is placed on your hardware, in order to chemically inhibit heat from bothering the device. It has been used for several years, and is fully safe.

Oil cool, do you mean liquid cooling? Or the thermal paste Dragon mentioned?

I doubt it. Cooking oil has a reverse bonding agent, which is different than what the radiator can handle. By the time it passes through the radiator, which is the cooling facility to transfer heat away from a piece of hardware, it will have already demised, which would be a complete waste of oil.

What is needed is oil that is particularly required for a certain radiator for the machine.

Uhh...I doubt water is going to bond correctly with oil. Never has.

So, it is doubtful that water will go through oil. Maybe over top of it, or below it, but certainly not through it.

It is just basic chemistry.

Not very practical though, I would rather have liquid cooling with cool UV lights, instead of oil all over my system unit. What if I ever need to change a hardware? It's gonna get messy. Ahahaha
