I've been running some stability tests for my processor and it is getting it slightly hot. About 50C which isn't too bad but it normally is around 30C so I wanted to cool it off a bit. I filled a tall glass cup with ice and placed it right in front of my side fan which blows right into my cpu fan. It seems to be working pretty well. My cpu is about 5-8 degrees Celsius cooler. That's pretty good for something anyone can do without any effort. But is this safe? The cup creates condensation which will put a considerable amount of moisture into my computer. Can this cause problems with my computer or even make some parts rust? I don't think it would rust because the computer is too hot to let the condensation collect and sit on it. But what do you guys think? Also, if it turns out to be safe, you guys should try the ice thing.
