New cooling with plexi idea.

I made this and I was thinking it would work. A small outtake to not keep the cold air bottled up so much. The condensation would not form on the inside of the plexi case, maybe on outside but its more safe. Itll be like a little room with a ambient of 30F

will this work?

Why not just pipe the cold air right in your case?

Seems like a good idea but is it really...

Dropping the ambient temp of the room will help but...

1: PC Case needs good ventilation
2: Plexi house needs good ventilation

Otherwise you will have managed to just cool the ambient temp and then have it constantley heatup because of trapped heat.

My PC is between my door and window so if I open my door and open the window I get a good cooling airflow passing through the room and into the hall... You could do this on the small scale like your idea but you need to keep the airflow moving around the plexi house without disrupting the airflow of the case.

My setup works well because the airflow is all moving in the same direction through my room and my case.

great idea. I got good air circulation in my case - 2 80mm intake, 140mm / 120mm outtake. Is my design ok? Intake in the back and outtake in the front of the plexi case? That means I will be blowing some cold air inside my room, but its ok because it gets hot in here sometimes . If i put a tube into my case, condensation may form on it. I do not want condensation to form on my case but it would be better if it did form on the plexi.
