Water Cooling with distilled water

From what I hear in my Chemistry class, pure water does not conduct electricity. If this is true, why han't anyone submerged a computer in pure water, or distilled water to water cool it? If anyone has any comments, or knows of any other posts about this let me know.

wouldn't water start a corrosion process even if it were to stay under water?

I just don't think anyone want to take that kind of a challenge, especially since most of us here don't have money to burn. Other sites like tom's hardware or Club OC might have considered it but not found it a feasible experiment.

Even if that was the case (and I seriously doubt that it is) the water wouldn't stay deionised for long with the mains attached to it via the PSU. I'd be intersted to see Tom's writeup on this experiment though
.

People have cooled computers with non-conductive liquid immersion before though and it really does work well. Only seen it on supercomputers htough and I can't remember the name of the fluid, looked like ectoplasm if I remember rightly.

Cheap shot, sorry.

The man that can, saves the day again
, cheers MuFu. That was one of the most inspiring links I've ever had the pleasure to click on, those guys are tremendous. I'd love to see what they can do with their next setup, and maybe some better components too

Yeah, thanx for the link! It was sweet. Maybe I can do that... or maybe get a good computer first with the wads of cash it would take!
