Common sense dictates that submerging your high-end PC in cooking oil is not a good idea. But, of course, engineering feats and science breakthroughs were made possible by those who dared to explore the realms of the non-conventional. Members of the Munich-based THG lab are only too happy to confirm this fact. And not only did we find that our AMD Athlon FX-55 and GeForce 6800 Ultra equipped system didn't short out when we filled the sealed shut PC case with cooking oil--but the non-conductive properties of the liquid coupled created a totally cool and quiet high-end PC, devoid of the noise pollution of fans. The PC case - or should we say tank - also offered a new and novel way to display and show off your PC components.You can check out the oil cooled PC over at Tom's Hardware Guide.
High-end PC cooled by cooking oil

Well this isn't really something new as it has been done by quite a number of people but today Tom's Hardware Guide presented a new project in which they cool an AMD Athlon FX-55 and NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra based system with eight gallons of cooking oil.
