Wet cloth behind a fan!! - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Hmm... Sounds risky due to the fact your water will be taking in so much moisture....

LOL wow putting a wet cloth up will do nothing but potentially short out your board(water vapor will collect on your board) or completely null the point of the fan. since the cloth is blocking the incoming wind from contacting parts. but u r free to F up your PC how ever you see fit.

lol, if you want using an AC to cool ambient temperature would be more adequate: do you not think so?

That kind of seems risky. I fear having a "tissue" get pulled behind.

I say you get one of those spray bottles with the little fan on it that makes a mist as the water gets sprayed thru it. You know, the kind you can buy at the gift shop of your local Zoo to keep your kids cool. Then every few minutes pump a few sprays into your intake fans.

That should cool your system right down!

I know this thread has been dead a while, but if it won't cool the air, you should probably tell half the state of Arizona, because they use the same principle to cool their homes. It's called evaporative cooling, and uses a water soaked pad to draw air through...thereby cooling the air. I've seen it drop air temps from 120F to @85F. However, it only works in dry climates... if the ambient humidity is too high it just adds more humidity to the air but no temperature drop.

Bottom line, this is a bad idea for cooling a computer, even here in Arizona.

Wait a minute, I may have just come up with an idea to cool the air going through my radiator...
