The problem with that approach is that if the A/C is doing a good job, the liquid inside the cooling system could actually wind up colder than the air inside the case. Which could (possibly) lead to condensation forming on the tubes (and blocks, even). The odds are pretty low, but better safe than sorry. If you let the cold air go inside the case as well, that will prevent the problem entirely. And the rest of your system gets a little extra cooling in the bargain.
