    So yes as I said at the top the main ingredient didn't arrive in time but I'll stick some unedited pictures in for those interested. While I know a great deal about PC software and hardware I'm not an engineer so have learnt many things by jumping in at the deep end (Including some of the limits of acrylic), I encourage people to try it! Next step for me will be to go away, learn some metalwork and come up with my third design. Ugly exposed wires eventually got covered up with Sugru (thing plasticine that sets like rubber). This is a hinge made from 90 degree fittings. To my amazement it both works as I imagined and doesn't leek! Wait what? A balloon? It's sealed system with a liquid turning into a gas. I wasn't sure how much pressure this would causes so rather than a containment failure the balloon will inflate instead. Found a leak. Fixed a leak. The liquid I had barely covers the CPU, just enough for a test. 63 C despite no heat-sink and not enough liquid! A poorly shot video: Good luck to all those who finished on time!

    STATUS: Withdrawn Unfortunately I don't have enough Novec 7000 to complete the project at the moment. I ordered a bottle back in January, it arrived the week of the 27th April after many delays. Not enough time to complete. The Project: This is a full immersion cooling project. An acrylic tank will contain a high end gaming system immersed in coolant. The coolant will boil, removing heat from the system, the vapour will then be condensed back into liquid using a custom water cooling system. To give an idea what that looks like here are some prototypes, note the bubbles and drips! The final thing will be fully immersed. System monitoring, cooling and lighting will be control by an Arduino Micro. LED lighting will provide feedback on system state by changing colour/pattern. CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K MB: Asus Maximus VII Gene PSU: XFX Pro Black Edition 850W RAM: 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance Pro Series Silver SSD: 512GB Crucial M550 M.2 Oops that is SATA not PCIe, replaced by an XP941 GPU: 4GB MSI GTX 980 4GD5 OCV1 Cooling - Liquid: Novec 7000 - Heatsinks: Custom copper blocks withs Boiling Enhancement Coating - Fans: 4 x 120mm FP120 PWM Edition Fan by Cooler Master - Radiator: 2 x EK-CoolStream PE 240 - Condenser: EK-CoolStream RAD XT 240 Case: Custom Acrylic Tank Monitoring: Arduino Micro Lighting: LED strip A crude sketch: Some pictures of components to get the ball rolling: This is my second attempt at a Novec PC, the first got as far as the prototype. It worked but also told me I was doing it wrong so scrapped that one and started a complete redesign late last year. About me: British Works in IT security Amateur DIY/engineer (I owns some tools, I know how to use many of them!) First PC: IBM 8086 First Overclock: PII 450Mhz > 550Mhz
