12 Cathodes along every edge of the case.
What color? Red? or something different? That'd be cool.

So I take it then that UV cooler fluid isn't conductive? I wouldn't imagine it would be but...

Nope, it isn't conductive. The chemistry is a bit beyond me at the moment, but they have various chemicals which provide non-conductivity.

The UV activating cathodes are usually purple, like this (my current set-up):

Haha. I feel retarded. I didn't make the connection between UV liquid and putting in UV cathodes. Hahaha. Just kind went over my head there. lmao. Yeah I have 2 UVs in my case. They do their job pretty well.

I was going to build a computer into a mini-fridge at one point.
Easy build. Just drain out the refrigerant and replace it with mineral oil or another refrigerant that doesn't condensate.

PS. I am in incredibly early stage talks with david about organising some kind of competition in the future, though we'll probably start with something smaller than this kind of thing
Yeah that would be cool, like a case modding competition?
