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."
