A question about heat dispersion.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So, it's summer here in Australia, and it's quite humid and around 30-35* C in my room, at midnight. My computer (Project Icarus. in sig) is watercooled and this has lowered delta's in my room. I was wondering, I'm getting some more fans for my RAD and this should lower temps, but the same heat output will still exist, will my room get up to the same temp or will my ambient lower? Will it just heat up slower to the same hot horrible ambient or will it drop?

tl;dr, More fans = Lower Ambient?

Thanks

I don't think you can drop your ambient temps no matter how many fans you have. It might help to reduce the temps a little bit, but I doubt it'll help too much. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Nope. Every watt used is a watt of heat put into the air. Running more fans will actually add slightly to your ambient temp.
