I just hope you have the appropriate safety measures or equipment nearby incase something actually happens (hopefully never but accidents do happen)

Linky not worky for me!

And I do agree, kerosene is relatively difficult to flame up. From past experience with aircraft engines....

Hehe

Update time........some pics from pre-test , as well as a catchup....

-------

I made a 'battery plug' to externalize the battery........from a dime and a nickle :



--------------

I chopped down the video card heatsink , and lapped /cut the shim...it's all installed sans TIM.....



Trimmed and siliconed in :



-------

Here's some shots from the night before the test :



-



-



--------

I have completely torn down the thinktank 2 :



-

I found out where the masking tape came from.Pump output ,you can see where it tore away ;
---




----

Heheh.....

-------------

At this point , everything has been dissassembled so I can check all the seals......it sat for a week full of Iso ....All the seals look fine.

I have noticed a slight 'tightening' of the molex connectors , I'm guessing they change a bit with the Iso.....

------

More right away.

Actually , fluorinert is most definitly NOT transformer fluid...It's used in cooling lasers and small electronics . It's much too expensive for transformer cooling.

And , while yes , rats have actually breathed oxygenated fluorinert , they all died from severe pulmonary trauma.

While it's possible to buy small quantities for less , 3M retails fluorinert for about 1000$ a liter.
