Add more radiator?

Put it this way - there is no sub-zero cooling that's practical for 24/7 use and makes sense from any reasonable standpoint having to do with your power bill. If you insulate well enough, sure, you can use a water chiller 24/7. You can use a single stage unit 24/7 as well. Both will have a relatively large impact on your power bill.

There IS one option, which requires a fair bit of work, but will definitely help lower your water temperature - Geothermal water cooling. The only hit on your power bill will be an extra pump or two (which is minimal) and you'll get consistent cooling year round. It takes some doing, but IMHO, if you're not ok with regular water cooling (and adding radiators doesn't help you), that's the more reasonable of the available options.
