ducting cold air to my hsf?? help me out! - Page 3

post #21 of 27
i already did this exact same thing and it worked great, I never had a problem with condensation because by the time it mixed with the air inside the case and the loss of heat through the duct itself, it wasnt really that huge of a problem. And on top of that, the air was going into my case and through a radiator vent to cool my water. I posted about it.

I think you should move... No human should have to endure those temps! I love Florida.

Wait I have an idea for you, maybe a little late but anyways....


Why not remove your sidepannel, fabricate an extension to your case about 4-5 feet off and connect it to your sidepanel, and cut the middle out of your sidepanel.

Now, in that 4-5 feet of space you have in your case now (since you extended your sidepanel basicly) put the dehumidifier, and duct the air into the case

This is kinda related I guess, no point starting a whole thread about it anyway. A simple idea, why not try putting a heavy duty aquarium air pump outside or even better in a freezer as that air should be drier (I think). Seal the freezer, or window or whatever if you need to (you definetly will on the freezer so less condensation builds up in there) around the tubing coming from the air pump and route thhe tube to anywhere you want some icy air in your pc. Not saying it will work, just an idea...

I doubt if an aqurium air pump will blow enough CFMs to keep anything cool.

Since I'm in CA, we don't have winters that cold (or even winter at all) Right now, it is 65F outside and sunny according to my weather station clock. The inside temp is around 68. A little cool but not that cold.

I have an air conditioner vent on the ceiling directly above my computer though. Might be useful in the summer.
