    Better than a frozen meal. Nice & fresh. yum yum
    Except for the burning taste of metal & plastic.

    I hope that thread wasn't for real. It shows we are going down the gurgler quicker than I thought.

    of course, any sane person, or anyone who as dabbled in reality, would dismiss this out of hand. But then again most of us know people who are that stoopid

    I teach woodwork technology, technical drawing, building construction and computer applications

    I've been working with computers for about seven years

    I'm not a total idiot (as some of your unkind replys would suggest) I did wrap the power supply unit in cling film plastic wrap before I filled it with water


    I really don't think that I'll be looking into water cooling ever again


    it was all a joke

    I really did not believe that anyone would fall for it. But the amazing part of it is that it has shown how small the world has become in the last 100 years. Titanic sank only eighty years ago and nobody heard the news for a couple of days...somebody fills a PC with water today and the whole world knows about it in less than two hours. Now that's crazy

    :rolleyes:

    I about died when I read that! It was too stupid for anyone with even 1/10th of a brain to do.

    Seriously, the idea has merit. I wouldn't use water though. I have seen people submerge car audio amplifiers in a fishtank filled with some type of silicone based non-conductive liquid and it works great. Although I would keep harddrives, CD/DVD drives, and the power supply seperate.
