I have experience with all types of projects, most notably what I am working on in the photo. Both James R and I were the primary members who built a custom computer submerged in Dielectric Mineral Oil. It was over a years worth of planning, and 6+ months of building before we got a working prototype.

This system scored better then 96% of all system who have ever ran the 3DMark graphics test. We also ran temperature readings in both air/oil and was able to prove that there was a significant drop is CPU/Motherboard temperatures during high loads.
The Dielectric Mineral Oil Proof of Concept (or PC of Justice as we like to call it) was one of the coolest projects I have had a chance to work on before! The ROV build, especially because of the knowledge we hope to gain from our experiments, looks to be working towards topping it though!
I am very excited to be a part of this project! If we can get enough data to even help save one persons life it will all be worth it!
