You're only supposed to submerge the motherboard. HDD's, optical drives, and PSU stay out, although you could probably submerge the PSU if you really wanted to.

I skimmed through the video and didn't see anything about mineral oil cooling, but that car radiator was ridiculous.

I'm sure they would see a big temperature difference in the radiators if they had an overclocked quad-core under the waterblock.

After so much skimming, I didn't see...Did they used a more powerful pump? That's all the difference with such a large radiator. If the liquid can barely move through the system...They won't really see the temps they should.

Good point. A radiator the size of a car is gonna need one good pump or 2+ smaller pumps.
