I see nothing wrong with that. It would take a consumidiot to buy a new PSU just because the form factor is different. And then this one presumably goes into a landfill. This is 100% preferable. It might not be pretty, but who is looking at the back of the PC while using it?You made me remind of the time this came in my shop back in 2011:

. But I don't doubt people doing dumb crap like this either.
Ja, you need to change the oil out frequently. Too bad Tom's never did a follow-up article to talk about how the vegetable oil will breakdown and cause biological bits to float around, not to mention it going rancid.I really wish I had pictures of my vegetable oil cooled PC back in 2006? Was young and dumb thinking that it was the next best think to mineral oil…. Learned my lesson three months later when a RAM stick threw an error…. Decided to crack the box open in my computer room and nearly threw up after the smell hit my nostrils….
Everything other than the PSU, Hard Drive, and CD-Rom was submerged in a 20L Rubbermaid box…
Thank you Toms Hardware…. Lmfao
Think that was the article that sent me down the path of… well decaying organic material enclosed in a box.
good lord, i worked at mcdonalds back when they used veg oil, i know that rancid smell. *shudders at the memory of it*.
I was able to clean them off…. But, I ended up going with a new GPU, partially due to a needed upgrade/couldn’t find replacement fans that died trying to move oil around.Ja, you need to change the oil out frequently.

Did you write off all the parts in that build, or did you try to clean them?
