Thanks for the quick replies!

I thought I may have to do this.. so it looks like a lot more money needs to go into it yet before I really get cracking on it. The tank I have is 20 litre, so it's plenty big, but I figured I'd need to get a rad for cooling purpouses, maybe I'll try without for the first bit and see where it takes me. Nothing is really doing to be stressed since its just a HTPC, and also I'll be only using it when I'm watching TV/movies and what nots, so mostly 4hrs a day max.. If need be I think 3 x 120mm rad should be enough??

Could always pump the oil thru a rad if you want cooler temps.
Thanks for the link Eldonko, I'll definitely be reading though that tonight and see if it helps!
