The main issue I have with lacquering the internals would be the difficult in which it may make changing out parts for it. I have however considered this option as well.

I would think a thin layer would offer enough protection and break easily enough to get old components out and new components in and reasealed with a new layer.

resale value however may take a hit.

Also I am pretty sure you could use some kind of water displacement like an oil or waxy substance that is non conductive. Just be prepared for a hell of a time cleaning it out.

make an evaporative cooler, it's perfect in your situation.
one fan, two pumps. that's all you need. then beef up your heatsinks or get many waterblocks.
