Dot of water forming inside case on the inside of the window (arcrylic) side panel

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So couple weeks ago this issue started happening. Basically after using my computer for couple hours, there are these little dots of water forming on my case window side panel (it's arcrylic, the see through window). And I can clean them up by taking out the side panel and wipe them. Then they form and come back later. So what are those dot of water from? I have no idea. Does anyone experiencing this issue?
My room temperature is normal and all the cpu and video card temperature are normal.

My pc spec:

Case: NZXT Switch 810
Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer (closed liquid cooler like the Corsair ones)
2600k @ 4.5ghz
Asus Z77 Sabertooth
GTX 780 video card
Enermax 850W DXX psu

CAse has 4 x 140mm fans running (2 intake, 1 back, 1 top)
The Thermaltake All in One liquid cpu cooler is installed so that the fans intake cold air from outside into the 120mm Rad. I'm running push pull on the Rad.

Sounds like you have a condensation issue... I would suggest first looking for any liquid buildups around on the Thermaltake unit...

You could have a leak and it's evaporating in the case then condensing on the plexiglass. Get a flashlight a look for it, as it could be a small pin hole that's just dripping.

Whats the temperature and humidity where you live, it's kind of unbelievable that there such a big temperature variance from outside and inside your case to cause condensation.

I just switch the fan direction on the RAd, so instead of intaking air from outside, i put them to exhaust air to the outside. I also cleaned the Rad and the fans and the fan filter.
