Yet another water cooling video, but with a twist (literal liquid cooling a PC)

Recently I've been binge watching a lot of Nile Red and Explosions & Fire on YouTube. What does that have to do with water cooling I hear you ask? Well today YouTube recommended me another video about a chemical that before today I'd never heard of.

 

The substance is called dry water (its industrial name is 3M Novac) and it has some very unique properties. I wont spoil these for you but suffice it to say, the experiment he does towards the end of the video is pretty awesome (the experiment begins at 10:36 if you just want to watch it though if you skip the rest it won't make much sense).

 

Here's the video...

 

I'm actually wondering just how far you could push this stuff? I know its expensive but given its almost totally unreactive you'd only need to use one batch, it would never go bad so in the long run it would be cheaper than doing a loop with regular water.

 

Thoughts? Anybody seen it/heard of it before?

Might make a cool video, maybe even a follow up to the ill fated mineral oil PC.
