A lot of houses feature falling waterfalls. Has anyone ever used one for a water cooling system for a PC? Answered

http://www.discountfountains.com/product.php?productid=84&cat=6&page=1 is an example of such a waterfall. I was thinking that making one with tubing running accross the surface of the water flow so that the falling water cool the tubes, and the water in these tubes would be used to cool the PC. It would be a aesthetic way to make a radiator that is fanless, functional and pleasing to the eye.

I guess you could have it so the water was cascading over radiator pipes and fins, but it wouldn't be very effective. Just put your PC in the fridge.

I do have a 100 litre fish tank, so its an idea.... The waterfall I am talking about is one of those inside ones that people have for aesthetics now.

that works until your waterfall goes dry or some other disaster outside. :S Some people use their tropical aquarium for this exact task. I've personally not done it, but theres plenty of places to make heat go away.
