    ok, sorry it took so long to update this.. I have bad news.. I spend about $40 on the fittings for the punp, and the 1/2 HP pump was still not strong enough.. or I couldnt prime it right or something, but after making a big mess and having the oil get so hot I decided to take it out.. so I did.. the pc is completly back in the case and has been for over a week and its still working fine.. I am sorry i did not get it working to post temps, but I have atleast proved that its not worth puting anything in oil unless you cool the oil wich is kinda hard to do.

    Dammit. You broke my heart man. I was ready to run home and throw my PC in a big tank full of oil.

    I just set the mobo on a towel upside down for about 2 hours, then turned it over for another hour.. most of it driped off.. then I put it in the case with some paper towel on the bottom, not much has driped off since.

    A 1/2HP pump wasn't enough? My friend has a 1/2HP pump rigged up on a diesel tank for his tractor, that thing fills the tank up too fast and it's a 13 gallon tank.

    Honestly I think this would have worked if he had just bought an electric oil pump for a car that could have handled the viscosity of the oil...

    Yeah, very true, diesel and water are a lot thinner than veggie oil...

    Ha! I'm reading this post and a few things are going through my mind:
    1) This sounds like a fun summer project that I might want to try.
    2) Why on earth are you trying to build a "quieter" oil machine, yet buying what looks like extremely loud radiators and pumps?
    3) Why, every other page, do people randomly post about how it would short the parts out, if about 10 people before them had posted the exact same question and had gotten the exact same question?
    4) I could be doing my homework right now, but this project is just too fascinating.

    I really want to find a new way of cooling my computer (aside from air, water, oil, or nitro.)
