    Default Would the Swiftech Apogee Drive II waterblock be good for a mineral oil pc?

    Swiftech is coming out with a new Apogee drive waterblock that has an integrated MC35X pump. This seems like something that would work well in a mineral oil PC. Any thoughts?

    Has anyone ever tried using a waterblock instead of a regular heatsink? Is the viscosity too much?

    i dont see why not, to be a computer water block it would have to be water tight so no mineral oil would leak in or out. in any case if the pump part of it is not water tight the mineral oil shouldnt have any effect on anything in there other then the stickers if any. pumps work under oil and their all pretty much the same things.

    Isn't the case kind of acting like a giant waterblock?

    sorta yes, but the idea behind the water block on high temp items such as GPU and CPU is that you can either take some load off the mineral oil so you can achieve longer runs with less heat increase or you can also use the mineral oil as a barrier against condensation if you wanted to hit sub zero or just lower than ambient temps.

    this is the system im currently working on should be able to get it running today, heading towards the nearest feed shop, which isnt close at all, in a bit.
