Cooling experment gone wrong, help?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Alright guys, i was upstairs expermenting, by opening the window, letting 24F air in, and cooling my computer, however...

I decided it was getting too cold, so i opened my door to let warm air in, well, i could feel water starting to condenstate (spell?) on the side of the case, i paniced shutting down the computer, and closing the door..

Im really confused guys, what should i do, i have everything off, not unplugged.

Its prob nothing, but... i want your guys insight before i go freaking about $2000 worth of electronics.

It was probably only on the side of the case that was condensating. I'll let the experts help you further though.

Nowadays that rig can sell for $400-500. I've never had condensation when letting cold air coming through my window and some warm air coming through the door of my room

How long did you have the window opened?
post #7 of 17
You have to let the room acclimated slowly from cooler air to warmer air. It is not so much of a problem with dry (desert) air as there is little water vapor in the air. Just, if you decide to do this again, let the computer warm up to air in the room, or shut down the computer, and let the room warm slowly.

Also you could just let it sit and dry overnight.
