maybe you could use a dehumidifier coil to cool the water

It is a good concept but not practical as others have stated. The straight tube design will allow air to flow freely through the system but it will not provide sufficient time for the heat transfer to occur. Also with bends in the pipe, you would need a fan with a very high CFM to push it through... I have cold air from my air conditioner blowing directly on my zalman cooler and have not seen any condensation form on it or in my case at all. it shoudnt be an issue

bingo.

exactly what i was thinking. If you could find a way to allow enough time for the heat transfer to occur between the air the fan blows in and the cold water around it, while still maintaining sufficient air intake/suction and exhaust, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Plus guys he is obviously coming up with something like this to assist his air cooling during the hot summer days; if he had the time or money to buy water cooling i don't think he would waste his time thinking this up in the first place.

Whats the point of this?

Your ice will melt very quickly, and it will take a lot of ice to cool the air, and lots of coolant and energy just to make the ice.

Maybe build a water cooling loop, and set the radiator in an ice bath with a phase change system, but not air cooling like this.
