I'm thinking industrial pond pump. Cheap and epic powerful.

Btw, eyefinity + 3D = awesome

Another problem is getting a fittings that won't eventually get damaged from being hooked up to a spinning reservoir. I know Koolance fittings (angled) have a spinning piece on them. But even the best fitting would eventually get worn out and begin to leak.

Don't need a fitting. The reservoir would stay in place with just the spiral moving inside it. It will be spun from the top, so as long as I don't overfill, it'll be fine.

Idk how liquid cooling works, but would there be a way to have the fluid move the helix instead of a mechanical system inside?

That is the plan, bit I highly doubt it will work, even with an extreme high flow pump. I would take quite a bit of pressure to get it moving.

I wonder if there is some way to affix it on the top and bottom to "float". Ya know, make sure there is as little resistance as possible.

I'll have to think about that. Right now, I cannot think of much that will not be massive resistance.
