Oil Cooled PC - *PLEASE* HELP ME!

O.K. forgive me for being a little crazy, but I'm about to have a breakdown and go insane. I still can't seem to find the right PUMP, even after going through FOUR different ones!

*This is all I need* ---> Please give me some advice on which pump I should get for my mineral oil cooled PC, so I can pump mineral oil from the aquarium through two radiators then back into the aquarium. Please & Thank You!

PS: It's for a school project, and I've been wanting to do this for a long time. I fully understand that oil cooling is not very efficient in terms of $, cooling(compared to water), and time.

These pumps won't do, for I had bought a PMP-450S before and it pushed oil out the other end like a sissy. It was very bad. The next pump I tried was overkill and heated the oil up. The one after that can't push oil properly without it creating air bubbles SOMEHOW inside of the propeller chamber. It clouds the oil up bad. I need help!

First off, your in completely the wrong forum. You want to be in the water-cooling forum for this kind of question.

From what I understand of oil cooling any typical water-cooling pump should be fine, though you would want a stronger one than usual due to oil being thicker. I'v seen some oil-cooled rigs running fine off DDC pumps, so I don't know why your D5 wouldn't work. Maybe have a look at the Koolance PMP-500, that has fairly strong head pressure.

Also may be of interest.
