Feast your eyes on the fastest Raspberry Pi on the planet, thanks to it being immersed in mineral oil.  In order to ensure it can still be used, the modder you can call Timm removed the various connectors such as the GPIO and USB headers and reattached them with wired extensions that extend outside of the case.  Check out the video over at Hackaday and think about Ken while you do.

"The computer in question here is a Raspberry Pi, and it’s being housed in a purpose-built laser cut acrylic case full of mineral oil. As a SoC, it’s easier to submerge the entire computer than it is to get a tiny liquid-cooled heat sink for the processor."

Sure, if you want to use the device only for one or two hours a day, or for long-term workloads that only occasionally/periodically put significant load on the system while mostly letting it idle in a low-power state, then this simple oil bath is fine. Otherwise, thermal equilibrium wants to have a word with you sooner or later...

Like deciding to improve the cooling on your Honda Accord with the 10 radiators from a Bugatti Veyron...
