Well, air can only reach the temperature of the water at the very best. And the water can only reach the temperature of the fluid it is immersed in (exluding the phase change options for now). Therefore whether you have an air/air or air/water/air intercooler you can never get below ambient air temperatures without using a refrigeration system or spraying water on it, allowing it to evaporate, or else packing it with ice and allowing it to melt.

What's there to read up on? It is simple thermodynamics that sets these limits.
