Yeah, yeah, everyone thinks their assembly/installation work is flawless... What if a component fails or becomes loose? It seems like kind of a ridiculous risk to take unless you're one of those fortunate people who have large inheritances and don't have to worry about money.
You cant say its a bad idea unless you tried it or understand how it works.
You use distilled water which is non conductive. Also you do maintenance every 6month-1yr max
I have helped alot of people in setting up water cooling no problems.
All you have to read and understand on how it works and set it up properly(hints why I have a guide and videos to help people understand)
you say to use mineral oil do you know how long that will take to clean it off.(most people submerge there comp in mineral oil)
Using water cooling is more efficient.
I am a pc enthusiast I like water cooling and overclocking. They work hand in hand, Better temps mean you will be able to overclock higher.
