How much power are we talking about dissipating here? Also, keep in mind that water pumps, peltiers, ect. dont magically make heat go away. It just MOVES it somewhere more conveinient. Unless were talking hundreds of watts, id suggest heatsinks with fans.
If you insist on water cooling, you may want to check out water blocks meant for high power laser diode arrays. They are basically large heatsinks with a bunch of copper pipes inside. You pump coolant through this and a radiator to keep the diodes cool. Ill bet you could make one easily with a piece of aluminum and copper tubing from Lowes/Home Depot.
There are also kits meant for cooling high powered CPUs...
