OOooooo. Can you point me to somewhere with pics?

I'd be more than inclined to learn how to do something like that!

It's a project that quite a few people have done, myself included, but information tends to be scattered all over the place (was a more popular thing to do in the past, or so it seems).

There's a massive thread with all sorts of info on XS: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...hiller-ac-unit

Here's a more recent go at it by wootang on this very forum: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...chiller-d.html

...and there are more... it'll just take some searching.

ah i remember those days, throwing my rad into a bucket of ice water for benching. good fun just remember to dry your rad off once you're finished.

also if you get more interested into things like this look up a slush box. ( rad + dice in a bucket )

My cpu is in my living room, on the wall that serves as a transition into the kitchen, and to hide the fridge (think large pillar in middle of what would otherwise be a big ass room).
I've always wanted to run my lines that extra 8 feet up the wall and through the side of the freezer to do something like this with more long term use in mind.
Check out wimcle's link to see where he's done the exact thing you're wanting to do, and how he went through 2 bags of ice in 4 hours.
