Heat is a form of energy and energy cannot be destroyed it can only be moved or transferred from one material to another or from one form of energy to another.
So we can transfer heat energy to kinetic energy which is what a steam engine does, when it takes heat from coal and makes water boil to produce steam which then makes the steam train move forward (there are actually like 10 or more energy conversion here but who is counting!)
In the case of your miner in the glass container, you are going to put in electricity into your GPU and its going to create exactly the same amount of heat as electrical energy that you are putting into it. This means that our ElectroCool EC-100 coolant is going to absorb as much that heat as possible and transfer it to the glass container it is in which will then transfer the heat to the surrounding air. If you have a large enough glass container with enough ElectroCool in it, you could transfer out all the heat, but generally speaking you don't want to use that much ElectroCool or have that big a container!
So you need to circulate the ElectroCool out of the glass container using a pump and through a heat exchanger that will dissipate the heat in another material, using a radiator we move the heat from fluid to the air!
So while the answer is yes you can! You won't like the results of just putting your GPU in a glass container with ElectroCool unless you are going to cool the ElectroCool with a radiator!
