Default Aquarium gear for water cooling??? WATER CHILLER???

Somebody here posted a link using an aquarium water conditioner or some aperatus to maintain relatively low temps in his water cooling loop. I just can't find the post he made for the life of me. Some kind of a chiller?

Lil help plz! :)

You could run more liquid such as a water jug, or a different thing such as a powered water chiller(like a culligan bottle chiller) :P

nah I saw someone here post some pictures in the water cooling section using a chiller. Such a good idea too... Super easy to add to a loop.

I seen a chiller for sale in the buy/sell/trade section but I never seen a thread with it in use. Funny you ask because I wanted to use some pc components for a nano aquarium. Namely the pump for a water cooling setup I am just wondering if the gph rating is low enough for the nano tank I wanted to use.

This is what he used but it had to be used carefully due to condensation.
