Water would of course eventually evaporate if you weren't using an airtight design, even if you never ever turned on the console. Airtight would be mandatory since you don't want the liquid, water or whatever else, to be condensed over the rest of the components and rendering the system totally unable to cool itself down in the end.Originally Posted by kaphwan063
Actually, water per se (distilled water) does not conduct electricity; other compounds dissolved in it, residual or not, are the ones that do - and this will happen everytime in practice since distilled water is like an ideal (i.e. impossible) condition. Anyway, in the case they used any liquid to cool the system down, it wouldn't be exactly water, there are more efficient and cheap enough solutions.
