Oh, that PC immersed in Fluorinert was much more amazing. )

I bet it costs a lot more. And where do you buy it?

Hmmmm. Probably a pain to change something out...

Lol, I found some pricing on that 3M stuff, it's like $500 for 50cc's.

Yeah, but the OC they were able to do would've caused a fire otherwise. In fact, they eventually dropped the temp so far they froze the caps. D

Edit Here we go


I saw that posted everywhere a few years back.

Actually, come to think of it, there's a new chemical that appears like water, but is totally non-conductive, and was supposed to be used for fire suppression systems without damaging hardware.

I think it's called "Sapphire" and made by Tyco. They poured some over Charlie Gibson's hand on GMA, and it was bone dry afterward. 3M has a version called Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid as well. I'm not sure if either crystallizes at freezing temperatures, but it might be a worthy future immersion ingredient. )

the cooling effect of the liquid has to be incredible!
