    The idea is good but it looks too simple to use. Wasn't there an article on the web about someone that froze his system inside a block of ice or built it into the freezer compartment of a small refrigerator? (I get confused between links I have acutaly seen and those I imagine.) Maybe it was an article about immersing the system in water.

    Hmm, putting a comp into a freezer.. good one.. it'll go bang for two reasons

    1: Hardware also has a minimum temperature, not just a max. If it gets too cold it'll stop working.

    2: If it heats up, and it's cold due to ice on it through it being in a freezer, it will heat up that ice.. that ice turns to water.. then you get to have a lil electric show!

    How can something be "too simple to use"? That doesn't make any sense.

    Not necessarily.

    a) The temperature of your average refrigerator/freezer (or deep freezer) doesn't go low enough to cause the computer components to stop working.

    b) Most refrigerators and freezers sold today are "frost free" ones where condensation doesn't occur.

    I like that system quite a bit. However, I did notice something troubling about it. There is a rather large air pocket between the surface of the mineral oil and the lid of the case. In certain atmospheric conditions where the room temperature and humidity is significantly different from the the air in that pocket condensation can form on the bottom of the lid, fall into the mineral oil and as the water is heavier float down to the component and short circuit it.
