It can lead to condensation, however this can be countered with filters and perhaps warming the air slightly. Some people use ducts to channel it into their computer though.

Well there is a few rules to tell if you will get condensation inside the pc.

* You cannot get condensation on a surface if it is not below the temperature of the incoming air.

* You cannot cool something down using forced convection to a temperature colder than the air/fluid you are using for convection.

* 100% humidity is a saturation point, you cannot go higher than that.

So, By looking at your outside window. and seeing the green leaves, etc. I'm guessing it isn't seriously cold there to begin with. Though night time temperatures will be a bit colder. But I still don't see a issue with it condensing there either. Thanks
