Hows this for daring? A master modder of Australia's popular Atomic magazine has just finished his latest masterpiece, a fully functional Super-cooled liquid PC which is completely submerged in a tank of mineral oil and further assisted by nitrogen pellets.


The motivation for such an out-there project is due to Atomic's upcoming tutorial/guide which it will be running through the Jan/Feb issues next yr, and to help show it off they've kindly uploaded a video onto their site for everyone to check out.


Who said liquids and electronics don't mix? Here, in its full glory, you can see the Atomic Oil PC built by our own master-modder Ron Prouse -- a completely submerged, fully functional, computer (power supply included!) cooled by a pump system with mineral oil and a little help from nitrogen pellets. The result? An incredible -61 degrees celcius inside the tank!


Watch video of this remarkable machine!
