I was wondering if anyone has ever taken a water cooling system and set it up to cool the hole case. I had an idea it crazy but hay so am I. I was thinking of setting up a metal reservoir attaching a tec to it to cool the water the running the water through a radiator and having fans blow over the radiator into the case sort of like an air conditioner What do ya'll think is it worth a shot.

The way my watercooling rig works is I cut a big hole on the front bottom and jammed the radiator and it has a 120mm fan on the inside pulling air through the fins. So theoretically this is what you're talking about. It really doesn't cool the case, you might need something MUCH colder than ambient temp water in order to effectively cool an entire case, like a window AC unit.
