I've seen worse...:D

But on a serious level; did you have any problems, or you simply found the temps too high?

nah none mate. first off all the piping doesn't go all the way into the tower, its about 2 inches short , plus its on around about a 20 degree incline so any condensation that forms inside  pipe will form and run down outside the tower into a bottle, and as for inside the tower itself , there hasn't been any condensation scene or evidence of it forming inside.  i don't believe  there will be much of a chance of condensation forming in the tower itself as the temperatures inside the tower and outside aren't greatly different , yes the components get hot but the general inside temperature is relatively similar to the outside , as the air con still keeps the room cool as well as the tower .

I maybe a raging homo , but i got this lol.

You could run mineral oil :)  Some people and companies are dropping their PCs and servers into mineral oil and then just running a watercooling radiator off the side.   Intel is actually doing tests with data centers with no reported issues hardware wise and 1/10 cost of cooling.  crazy stuff, bit messy god help you when you need to move it.

Too many gamer's tuck the PC case back in under benches and other places to make things look neat , without realising that by doing so they greatly reduce the airflow available to and through the case.

Use the BIGGEST case you can and DON'T have a birds nest of spaghetti in the wiring as this reduces airflow as well. 

Plenty of fans too helps  not to extract but to push cool Air in, so a large volume of Air through the case at low speed is much more efficient at cooling that high speed lower volume.
Low speed Air picks up and carries more heat out than high speed as it is in contact with the heat sinks longer thus removing more heat as a result.
my PC runs at about 30-60 Deg depending on the Load I use a H80 Water cooler on the CPU and 4 large fans pushing a lot of Air through the case at a relatively low speed.
