Hello all,

I am inquiring about finding a PC case that is cylindrical in form factor and could possibly be after market modded to be waterproof. I have tried to find cases and everything i find is either not out yet, or is like the Mac Pro. I am doing a project where my end goal is to have a completely submerged server. I need it to be waterproof from actual water, not some type of mineral oil or electronic fluid. If anyone has any ideas that could help me that would be fantastic! Thank you!



"I love you," he whispered, our eyes still locked. For those few heartbeats, I felt more cherished than I ever had in my life. I didn't realise when the tears slipped free. With a tender brush he brushed them away and I whispered, "I love you more."

He smiled a lovely smile and with one powerful thrust of his hips, he pushed his cock in my pussy, burying himself to the hilt in my heat all the way in until I felt the coarse hair on his groin against my tender skin.

The shock and discomfort was worse than the pain. I squeezed my eyes closed, tears running down my cheeks at the burn and pain as his cock stretched the walls of my pussy.
"You're so f***ing tight," he growled, nibbling at my neck. But he remained still, letting me adjust to the unfamiliar intrusion of his thick, long cock.

A choked sob escaped my throat and he raised his head. With surprisingly gentle fingers he tipped my chip to look at him, and my breath caught in my lungs at the emotion in his eyes. His face was gentle, soft. Caring. Loving.

I smiled at him through my tears, running my hands down his mused back, reveling in the feel of him and how our bodies were joined in the most intimate of ways.

"Are you okay? Is it better?" Jaime asked, concern swimming in his eyes. With a deep breath, I nodded. The pain had ebbed away, and in its stead there was just the sense of being so very full.

I am all for projects, what is the end goal of having a fully submerged server within a case though? Mineral oil solutions 'work' (though gimmicky) because the heat transfers directly from the components outwards, but if you're submerging the PC enclosed in a case will that not insulate the heat? The air trapped inside the sealed case will get very hot and the transfer rate will be very low for it to escape. Most servers rely on very high airflow through racks though some exotic solutions will pump water through constantly to the parts that need it with fittings.


Assuming heat isn't a problem you'll probably have to do something custom since it will likely need to be made of a thick plastic and heat-sealed. Over the counter solutions will have too many cracks and holes. Even if you seal them I wouldn't trust putting thousands of dollars worth of server grade hardware under water unless you can guarantee the sealant won't face degradation in a submerged environment.


If you're using throwaway parts like old gen ES Xeons I would just buy a Rubbermaid waste bin and flex seal it up after you've mounted the components. Just be extremely cautious with wiring and water!
