And also do not forget that the heat from CPU stays in the box. Peltier just transfer it from one side to the other...

And the moisture thing that spic0m said. Is very important to take in account.

The idea of cooling water is banging but is it needed? Is it so hot to need a cold water? I mean, simple water cooling with fan and radiator is not sufficient?

Cat, spic0m lives in Greece. Have you any idea of Greece during summer? 45 degrees under shadow...

40 days a year with no sun

Water cooling is simply inefficient. Actually Greeks lives hugging an air condition. If you live north you may not know what this device is  ;)

Manley is right, as we speak now i have cpu temp at 40 degrees celsius and case 33, it's not much but remember we are at the start of April. Also the pc is going to be a server working 24/7 so i want it trouble free. And after all i like it this way  ;D  ;D.

Anyway here is a draft sketch on how i imagine it, along the pipes path should be temp sensors and some switches to close the water flow in case of failure or maintenance.
