I think everyone here will agree that he doesn't have a A/C cooled room. Because he compared his room to a A/C cooled one like at school.

Its putting 2 and 2 together. Not that hard.

AC=Refrigerated??

maybe its his choice of words, but I figure he knew what we was talking about and the rooms he had classes in where actually refrigerated and had nice machines in there?

Its really whatever, im seriously not putting effort into starting a argument.

If he really has no ac then by all means recomend it.
Keep in mind: the title of the thread is "Refrigeration Unit".. so hmmmm.. I wonder what hes really looking for

Calvalry: You can make a inexpensive little cooler if you have an external rad. Fix your rad so you can take it and the fans on the rad off easy...You need to put conformal coating around the cpu socket a couple or three inches, on the back of your mobo conformal where the cpu is and 4 or 5 inches more..Put di-electric grease in your cpu socket...Then you can just pop the fans off your rad and stick it in a bucket of ice water...It cools it well for a few hours or more...Do not do it with-out conformal and di-electric grease, you might even want to put Neoprene hose insulation 4 or 5 inches either way on the WB....If your cooling more then the cpu it might be more of a pain than it's worth...Just insulate everything like you would for a pelt and you should be OK. If you dont feel comfortable doing this dont do it..If you dont understand what I'm saying dont do it..If you fry your rig dont blame me....... link....Conformal..Danger Den :: Peltiers/PSU/Insulation :: Insulation Parts :: Conformal Coating

link...Di-Electric Grease, buy several ..Danger Den :: Peltiers/PSU/Insulation :: Insulation Parts :: Dielectric Grease Compound

I dont think you will really need this but oh well.....Danger Den :: Water Additives :: Non-Conductive Formulas :: MCT-5 Non-Conductive Solution

Here's a cheap $60 solution (click thumbnail). Get a vertical flow A/C, build a plexi shelf and a couple of fan shrouds, add a duct to eliminate condensation and your off to the races. Runs on fan only or A/C, cools both room and PC. Since it's DIY you can make it as aesthetically pleasing or functionally homely as you choose.

It keeps my CPU temps between 10-14ºC with zero condensation or the need to seal against it.

If I had an ac unit I'd do pretty much what you did.
