Has anyone tried this solution? is it effective? do i need to worry about condensation? please advise
Are you talking about a normal AC unit and converting it for PC use? If so, it has been done and works. However, you need to be careful about condensation. With the unit on, there is not a worry. The issue is when you shut off your system. The air temp inside the case will rise while some components in your case will remain colder. Water may condense inside your case. An AC is just a phase change unit.
If you are talking about a little case AC unit sold for PCs... don't bother. They are all very very weak and won't really do a thing.
