Visual reference: If you pour 16 ounces of fluid into a cup, it doesn't matter how fast or slow you pour the liquid, you will still end up with 16 ounces in your cup once you are done. Same holds true for heat energy added to a room.

Well, you guys can call me ignorant, stupid or anything in between. I've water cooled plenty myself in the past, and if anything I felt it made the room get hotter. Obviously we're not talking 10C, here.
JayzTwoCents has been water cooling for over a decade, and at 8:50 of this video
, he states the exact same thing. You gonna get ahold of him and tell him he's unimaginably ignorant, Mr. Brain @Dmitriy
And your 16 ounces of fluid in a cup is a great analogy and all if every bit of heat is trapped in your room like every bit of fluid is trapped in the glass. However, this is not the case.
