Like I said, one can dream. Here's a link to the website:

Digital Storm

(Some of thier selling points)

Below 0°C Temperatures - The Cryo-TEC system lowers processor temperatures below 0°C, maximizing overclocking performance and stability. Designed and tested over months of research by the industry's most performance focused engineering team, the Cryo-TEC system is specifically designed for enthusiasts and hardcore gamers who are driven by the pursuit of more performance and power.

Thermo-Electric Cooling - At the heart of the Cryo-TEC system are thermo-electric modules that are able to chill the copper CPU side below 0°C. By placing the processor in direct contact with the thermo-electric cold plate, the Cryo-TEC system is more efficient in lowering processor temperatures below 0°C and increasing overclocking performance. It out-classes and out-performs standard liquid cooling systems with its incredible design and it can only be found exclusively at Digital Storm.

Maximum Overclocking - The Cryo-TEC's tremendous cooling ability makes it an ideal choice for enthusiasts looking to maximize their overclocking potential. By reducing hardware temperatures so drastically, the Cryo-TEC allows hardware to be overclocked more aggressively than ever before. In addition, its superior cooling abilities prolong the life of overclocked hardware by keeping their temperature under load equivalent to their temperature under stock speeds.

Designed for Enthusiasts - The most stunning characteristic of the Cryo-TEC system is its ability to provide below 0°C temperatures. The only other commercially available systems that can boast these statistics are phase change units. Large, bulky, and often located outside the computer, these units cannot compare to the Cryo-TEC's compactness and automated control system that regulates fan-speed and liquid temperature on the fly leaving you worry free and able to enjoy your gaming system.
