In this video I will show you why oil and electronics can sometimes represent a useful combination. Along the way I will perform a couple of experiments with the oil in order to determine its resistance as well as its cooling capacity. Let’s get started!

  1. For computer cooling transformer oil is not good solution, better solution is perfluorotripentylamine or perfluoro 2-butyl-tetrahydrofurane (3M Fluorinert FC-70 or FC-75 respectively) which was used for cooling Cray supercomputers.

  2. A rubber band might hold the temperature probe on and in contact, as it applies pressure and does not use adhesive.
    Great videos, as always. Thank you.

  3. We have almost the same multimeter. Mine is a UT61E. What do you think of the voltage protection? According to Dave on EEVBLOG they shouldn't even be Cat III rated. From what I've heard elsewhere, the reason is that the ones meant for the Chinese market don't include metal oxide varistors but ones for America and EU do include them. Mine came from China in a Chinese box, but I haven't looked inside it yet. I think it's a great meter for the price. But I hate the battery connector and compartment.

  4. It reminds me a video I saw a long time ago of a guy who put a Super NES motherboard in oil xD I've learnt that oil is not conductive, it's an interesting fact though.

  5. Why didn't you just set your multimeter to directly measure the resistance of the oil kept in a container with known dimensions?
