Last weird cooling system I did involved geo thermal. Old radiant floor heating coils buried under the concrete in my basement, dirt is always right about 62F no fans anywhere. pump was 1/4 horse in the basement with low voltage lines running down to pull in the pump relay with a 12V coil. Completely silent and actually far more efficient than using ambient air over radiators. I never managed to saturate that loop. Resevoir was a 5 gal bucket in the basement.
Yeah I'll probably end up with a a/c server cooler nice and easy and I can use it for other projects like if the a/c goes out and outdoor outings....
Water chillers are only good for one thing.
