okay so i just read this tread and i just wanna say window a/c into the pc isnt a problem at all and in fact its one of the cheapest ways to cool your pc outside of a full loop system.

what i did was buy a 5000 btu a/c and a corsair seidon 120 xl both cost me $150 all together.

install the All in one kit in the exhaust panel in the back of the case. but instead of exhausting the air you want it to pull the air into the case so switch around your case fans to pull into the system not out of it. next step you wanna do is if you have front mounted fans on your case reverse them to exhaust the air out the front instead of pulling it threw the front into the case. now hes the best part go to the hardware store and buy a a 4inch dryer vent hose and jerryrig or find a way to attach it to the exhaust window of your a/c i used zip ties to attach it to mine.next take the other end of the vent and attach it to the exhuast port where you attached the AIO water kit which should now be in pull verision to pull air into the case.
now when you turn your comp on and the a/c the cold a/c air in going thru the vent directly into the rad of the aoi kit better cooling the system.. my cpu is a amd 965 be overclocked from 3.4 to 4.4g without this method i get idle temps of 41c and load temps of 56c. after this setup i get idle temps of 18-22c and load temps of 28-30c.

also as you can see from the picture my case also has two side fans instal points on the side panel. i also attached another dryer vent into the right 120 fan grill to cool my 2 gtx 680s in sli. they used to idle at 32c and loads from 48 to 70c depending on the game and now they idle at 18-20c and load at 40-50c depending on the game im playing.
