Thoughts on a crazy setup (servers and oil)

I do a lot of data crunching, and I'm getting frustrated with having to set up a new, expensive ec2 instance every time I need more than 8gb of ram. I'm building a new desk anyway, so it occurred to me I could drop a trough into it to fit a rack server - I can get an 8 core 32gb ram one second hand for about £250. Because I'm mad I was also thinking about dropping some copper piping in and filling the whole server cavity with mineral oil for quiet cooling.

Anyone have any thoughts?
