I came across this image, showing an apparently working motherboard soaked in cooking oil, using the heat from the electronics to deep fry potatoes.
Like most of the internet, the content is of course not trustable. That is why I am asking this question to see if such a thing is at all possible.
I found this question regarding the temperature at which electronics can work, whose answers hint at a maximum of 70C. That doesn't seem true about computers though, as the CPU at least may get even up to 85C and working.
In the image, there is also a thermometer that shows 115, but I can't make out the unit.
So, first of all, can electronics be drenched in oil and still work? If so, is it possible for them to be drowned in oil (which absorbs the heat from the electronics) heated up to such a high degree?
