It was a bit of a fad that I don't remember lasting long because of the complications, was a good 4 years ago I remember reading about it

You can do the same with a bunch of large diameter plastic washers.

If you build one of these, you'll need to keep it dosed with some sort of biocide, or change the water every 2 days.
That confirms what I always suspected. Bongs are bad for your health.

What's a cheap way of cooling the entire case decently? I like the sound of something custom and new if i had the money id experiment myself.

For cooling the entire case your only option is sticking air thorugh it really, though it is possible to submerge it in oil but not too practicle
