You could just set a bag of ice on your radiator.
Better: Place your radiator in a bucket of ice-water.

Good for short-term benching. Watch for condensation. Make sure you don't leave your system idle for too long. The heat from load should help reduce chance of condensation on the loop.
Once again...

Yeah I had my rad on a quick-disconnect and my fans on studs so I could flip it over in a bucket of ice-water it would get me down to ambient for an hour or so...It was kind of a pain in the neck but it worked...

Im still here, don't threat!

I can't try the experiment until i actually get my water cooling!

Not sure i want to try it on my new E6700 and 8800GTS though

What's an OBD1, it's just a rev counter to me!

Ok, i've got another excellent idea!

What about running your water cooling set up like this:

Tap > cpu > gfx > mobo > Sink

Water temperature out the tap is about 4 degrees C, no need for radiator or reservoirs, plenty of pressure too!

Any one hooked up their WCsetup to the mains?

it would depend on where you lived. if you live a a hard water area like i do lime scale would soon build up and reduce perfomance but i think that may work but as everyone has said you will need to watch out for condensation

You would need to make sure they you don't spray and water must constantly flow. Water bill is going to be high.
