that is your fault, you should have opted for a better pump, and 1/2in tubing..
But what I have, was all I could afford..

Right in the back, but I have to buy some new bits, due to burning them to peices drilling out my 1/4in thick server case..
Antec has these silly little brackets for the quick fan exchange system, so I need to make some hole, but I will say, this thing is 45x quieter than my jet 4,and all temps are down 10c..

When drilling steel take it slow, stop to let the bit cool down. You can use cutting fluid if you are drilling thick steel, this helps with cooling.

Yeah, I've found that WD-40 works great for that kind of stuff.

Yes, I think any light oil would work well enough.

I have 1/2tubing, and why would I need a better pump?

I put it this way.
My CPU (3.06GHz(533MHz)) has a bad reputation for overclcoking, and 3.2 and 3.3GHz are very good for this chip.
at 3.45GHz, this chip was 66c load and highly unstable, restarts in firefox.
now, at 3.45GHz, it is 57c, and all of the benches are perfect and stable.
at 3.06GHz, the idle is 40c, and load is 50c, and my old thermalright and jet4 were doing 48c idle and 60c load.

current while folding and surfing net..
3.45GHz@1.65v
52c.

used to it would not run stable at this speed, and was over 65c all the time.
now it is fine, all I wanted was a quieter cooler and lslightly lower temps, and for the money, I got the best deal.
As for the temps seeming high, I have an ASUS P4G8X, so it reads exactly 10c over.

Firefox is great for testing stability. No need for prime, I just have to open firefox, and if it crashes I know it went too far.

Mine would get cranky at about 3.7, and die at about 3.75

What voltage are you running it at by the way?

usually 1.65v for everyday 3.4GHz, and 1.7v for a nice 3.5GHz
