Submerged in mineral oil. Another topic on here mention these and omg I must do this. I've never built a PC before but I'm good with electronics. I'm going to start if with a very basic build and newegg has like a $170 package for a lil BS dual core set up. Is this the best way to go about purchasing the parts? Aside from the actual parts will I need any special tool?

All you really need is a screwdriver, one that has a magnetic tip can be helpful.

It's a misunderstanding. I think he meant to suggest Windex.

Submerging a PC in mineral oil is new to me. First time I ever heard of such a thing. How does it work? Do most people do this? I'm planning on getting into PC gaming in the near future, and I would like to know if this is a necessary process of building a custom gaming PC.

Not a lotta people do this. It's messy and a bit expensive. I also might add it looks very silly.

If you're just getting into PC gaming, you probably won't want to start with a custom cooled mineral oil PC.

...assuming you're serious.

No, almost nobody does this. It's something for the 0.01% who want insane overclocks on absolute top of the line parts. It costs a lot more, requires a lot more work, and has a lot more opportunities for mistakes.

Basically if you're at a tech level where you ask if this is something you should do, you emphatically should not.
