It would be somewhat expensive, and you would definitely have to pull it apart at least somewhat, but it depends how serious you are about OC cooling.
Build yourself a stainless steel (plastic would be cheaper, if you can get some good waterproof glue to hold it together with) shell around the evaporator, seal it with silicone where the freon lines go in, and fill the whole thing with water. A line from the top and bottom of this would go to your computer. Only problem with this is, you wouldn't get any cool air out, so you couldn't send this through the case. CPU would stay nice and cool, though!

On a humid day, this would cool things below the dew point and cause problems. The evaporator-to-air-to-water setup, or simply directing the output from the A/C into the case wouldn't, because the air is as cold as it's going to be coming out of the A/C unit. Warming it up at all would make it hold more moisture, not less. The only problem you could have is if you got everything nice and cool, then your A/C broke down, and started blowing warm air on your cold computer. Then you'd get condesation.

Gotta go....I'm seeing lightening, so I need to turn my computer off.
