Pouring In The Oil During Operation

Strip Out The Fans, Add 8 Gallons of Cooking Oil

The PC system is already running with passive cooling - now the oil has to be quickly poured in.

As soon as the case is absolutely tight, in principle the pouring of the oil can begin. The fact that the system was started first with only passive cooling made us nervous. Therefore, we wanted to fill the thing up with oil without delay; otherwise, you run the risk of the processor or the graphics chip overheating, of course. By contrast, the variation of first filling the oil and then starting the computer is less dangerous.

It is finished: 8 gallons of vegetable oil have been poured into the case - the system gleams through silent continuous operation.

This is what it looks like when everything is tightly sealed.
