Water cooling... and FISH!

Postby 127.0.0.1 » Thu Sep 02, 2004 4:42 pm

What do you guys think about a water cooled system, with real fish alive in the water cooling pipes? It would be kinda cool to sit there next to the PC and look through the clear side panel and see the fish getting sucked or swimming from tube to tube. I don't know how this could be done, but it sure would be cool.... (but maybe a little un-realistic) :roll:

Has anyone here ever moded a system? whats your coolest mod?
For me I think my most useful PC mod would be adding a gage to the front of my PC's case, to tell me the temperature of my case on the inside. It's really useful (and cool looking), if you want to see your case temp, just glance at your case no software required (I know this wouldn't measure CPU temp).

I made a pc with out a case and took an AMD K6-2 and put the motherboard in the fridgeand the cpu was frozen. And the pc worked for a couple minutes then it started going crazy because i took it out of the fridge and the frost melted and got on the motherboard.

What happened did it screw up your motherboard or did it just wet it and it still worked? Or if you did have to buy a new one did you get a better mobo/ or CPU?
