Default Re: Liquid Cooling help

if you want some clear great cooling liquid
get
mineral oil
it has a high burning point
and its not corrosive or even conductive

You don't want to put mineral oil in a liquid cooling loop.

seriously >.> Mineral Oil is too thick and doesn't dissipate heat well enough to even be practical in a LCS. And don't even get me started on the corrosion it would cause.

I've never seen anyone put mineral oil inside a liquid cooling loop before.

Ehh; you're right. It really does depend on the user and their application for the system. I just see mineral oil as one of those "non-practical" liquids to use. it would sort of strain the pump and some impurities could really ruin the tubing. Just as Cabbs has said ( I always agree with him, lol ) I've never seen it done and I suppose if there is proof I would love to see it.

You might as well just put it in an aquarium tank full of mineral oil.

That is the classic example I've seen for the use of mineral oil. But I seriously doubt that keeps your components cool at all...Once the tank is heated, it stays heated and has no where to go or way to be cooled.

People have found ways to do it. Some use dry ice, air conditioning, etc.
