Whacky cooling experiment.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What kind of cooling do you think i would get if i like got 3 of those big Dryer pipe things and hooked them from a window mount A/C to the 3 front 120MM fans on my antec 1200.

Would be ugly but....

I've thought about doing that, tbh. Not mounting it to the front, but going on/around the HSF. I'd be interested what your results are.

Well. My problem is that i dont have a window mount A/C lol. I guess i could try putting a 3 way split on one pipe and jamming it into my floor vent because i have Central A/C.

If i decide to i will tell results.

Find out the temps of the air that comes out of the AC, then bring your PC outside on a day where it's roughly that temperature, maybe a bit higher. You should get pretty much those temps.

Did you ever get anywhere with this?

I am dangerously close to ordering this for gaming sessions: http://www.compactappliance.com/PAC8...efault,pd.html

Thinking of just shoving it in front of the side vented window and letting the watercooler and GPU's eat the cold air.

My two GTX295's are way too hot in my room. Would just turn it on for gaming, and turn off when I'm at work.
