Looks good, but wont catch me doing anything like that

Eventually what will happen is performance will go down, because although the oil is an insulator and doesn't conduct electricity it can still seep into the components like capacitors and could cause them to have a very short life span.

As to having videos embedded in post, it wont be allowed because spammers would only then embed dirty, nasty videos

On that link, you can go onto the website, and theres a sort of blog on how its going, and what else they've done.
They've had the machine up for 6 months now, with fans, and everything is still working as well as they were on day 1.
