Re: [APD] Re: Unusual thing to put in an aquarium
It's the latest thing for PC modders as a cooling method.
Disk drives have to be kept out of the liquid -- harddisks
have vent holes to allow pressure equalization when temps
change and to vent any moisture. And CDs/DVDs? Well, the
laser won't track if it has to pass through liquid first.
But solid state components don't mind whether they are in
liquid or gas, so long as there's no appreciable increase
in capacitance between the curcuit traces and, of course,
the liquid must be nonconductive (at least when dealing
with 12 volts or less.
Replacing parts is much messier this way. ;-)
There's a short write on it here:
