    I only have praises for my Antec case. @Anduin, I think you should favor function over form. A pretty case is a good thing, but a silent one is a great thing.

    All the fun parts of life are optional.


    Yeah, that is why my proposed build uses the Ultra Rouge. It seems to be a safe bet currently.
    I’ll likely order the case last when I finally build. I am still looking for that right mix of form and function.
    If price wasn’t a factor, I would whip out my Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer books and build a custom oil submerged PC.


    Doesn’t oil render circuit board plastic brittle over time? I thought it did.

    All the fun parts of life are optional.


    I’d post photos but quite honestly my cable management is atrocious and embarrassing as this is my first build so I’ll just post specs for now:
    AMD FX-8350
    ASRock 990FX Extreme 3
    Team Xtreem Dark Series 8GB RAM
    WD 1TB 7200rpm
    HIS Radeon HD 7850 2GB GPU
    Raidmax ATD-295WBP Mid Tower
    Rosewill Stallion 500W PSU
    Samsung DVD/CD drive

    Total cost: $705


    @Raven, This is the only consumer rig I have found for an Oil Submerged PC. They have had a few long running computers to test the longevity of the circuit submerged in their oils. Some for a few years now. The breakdown of the circuits I have seen have been where the oil used dissolves some sealants or all the labels placed on the components.

    In the industrial world. Oil cooled computers and servers are pretty common. The submersion designs help to save space and allow the computer to cool non-essential components through Thermal Conduction, and critical parts (ie CPU, GUP, ram etc) though normal convection methods using the same fluid.

    The big catch for a personal computer running in submerged oil is price and warranties. First the oil is going to set you back anywhere from $15/gallon to $50/gallon. Its not some crazy special oil, although they do exist for this purpose. Its just not sold in bulk at a retail market, and a person will likely need at lead 10 gallons to have a working rig.
    Second, the next biggest cost/risk is that no off the shelf computer component is warrantied after being submerged. So it is an immediate risk to throw a new computer in the tank.

    The link above has some good information, but from my point of view it is still incomplete. They do have the best loading system for your Mobo that I have seen online so far.

    Lol @anduin Thanks for the love man, I am so glad you liked it. You have GOT to let me see this sucker when you get it tattooed.

    Everyone else the Amazing (and surely handsome) Anduin, commissioned me to do that castle crasher piece for him, and since he asked for it in the november – December months, his commission fee went straight to toys for tots, along with 3 other awesome people.

    Thank you very much for helping make a bunch of kids very happy, and if you ever need anything else, all you need to do is ask sir.
