You need to have the PC in an enclosed space, same as the server/s or you will get condensation where the cool parts contact the warm, moist air.So, I have been revamping my server closet and have routed my window unit up and over to the closet to improve heat issues and it is working better then expected. That being said, I would like to put my desktop PC up there and configure and resize the blower to go directly into the intake (front) of my PC case.
Does anyone see any issues with this? Or advice going in? It’s only a 250sqft AC I got almost brand new at a pawn shop for $70 bucks.
Bonus Question. I Am currently using cardboard box painted white to transfer the cool air, would a plastic dryer hose work better? Something else?
If the temp difference is not too great you might get away with it
If you are talking about placing the PC in the server space and directing cool air through the PC first it should be ok although you could use the exhaust from the PC as the exhaust from the server space since it will likely be producing the most heat
