WARNING: PLAYING WITH LIQUID NITROGEN IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. COMPLETE PROTECTIVE GEAR IS NEEDED WHEN HANDLING THIS CHEMICAL. KIDS DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. WE WON'T BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY THIS EXPERIMENT.
As overclockers, we've already seen a lot of extreme cooling done to our beloved systems. First victim is the CPU, we take those useless stock heatsink and fan off then put a bigger aftermarket heatsink fan combo. Not contended, we then go extreme by adding a peltier to further cool down that processor. Finally, with all that modification, we delve further to the extreme by going the watercooling way. Is that it? No. Next to fall victim is your case. You put as much fans as you could, the bigger the better, then you cut your case and put blowholes wherever possible. Is that the end??? Yes.... for most. But not for me.
I've heard of a few people thinking of fully submerging their entire motherboard with all its components in some sort of non-conductive fluid. Now that is really extreme!!! Sounds crazy actually. I've only heard of 2 people doing such bizaare experiment but with the use of mineral oil and motor oil. Now I don't wanna use that. So, I had to do some research and look for a liquid medium that is totally non-conductive. Then I came across FLUORINERT!!!
Fluorinert- is an electronic testing fluid manufactured by 3M. It is used to immerse devices to test its quality, physically and electrically. Devices dry quickly without residue to be cleaned. These 3M Fluorinert Electronic Liquids have good stability, high dielectric strength and are compatible with sensitive materials.

EUREKA! I have found it. Just the fluid I needed. Of course I also want to supercool this liquid. Now how do I cool this liquid??? Since I have already gone extreme by thinking of fully submerging the system, why not go really, really extreme. What do I need to add in the picture to make it more intriguing for you guys? How does LIQUID NITROGEN sound??? Yes that's it! That's what I'll do...that will be my mission. A liquid nitrogen cooled Fluorinert to fully submerge the motherboard and all its components!
Liquid Nitrogen- Atomic no.= 7; Atomic mass= 14.0067 (hehe, just wanted to sound like a real scientist). Temp.= -196C approx.
