Mineral oil instead of water?

So a buddy and I were buzzed-talking about the machines we are going to build once we win the lottery we don't play, and the question came up why couldn't we use mineral oil instead of water in a liquid cooling system? Our first thought was that maybe oil would be thicker and would kill the pump motor, but if that isn't the case, we couldn't figure it out. Ideas?

It sounds more like you watched a video of a bunch of people who actually submersed a computer in mineral oil.

Anyways, it's possible. Just not the way you were intending.
