One of the many joys of PC gaming is the ability to customise your gaming computer to your heart’s content.

For most of us, this means upgrading graphics cards, managing our cables, and setting up liquid cooling if we’re feeling adventurous.

Below are some hardware enthusiasts that push the concept of PC modification to its limits with crazy and amazing gaming rigs:

Modular Mineral Oil Rig

This mineral oil PC build  features an insane amount of features and accessibility.

This is actually a proven method of PC cooling, as the oil is non-conductive and does not damage any of the PC parts.

Its complex and fitted case allows for hot-swappable hard drives despite the build’s immersion in mineral oil.
