I always sit with the air blowing in my face. I don't feel any dampness or humidity. Just coldness.

you should watch out for condensation at those temps. i prefer to just keep my whole room a little cooler

Wow, do you have a picture of that AC unit from up close? Or maybe a link to where one could buy it?

It was probably at BJ's or Home Depot.

Actually the opposite. It blows nearly 100% dry air.

It's not the air it blows that creates condensation. It's the difference of temperatures of the air hitting the processor and the heat created by the processor.

Just don't come crying if rig ever dies


Also the electric bill will be a wee bit higher!

I sense trickery in this thread. 7C? That would mean the air temp is close to 5C. 5C is 40F. Thats cooler than you'll get with an AC unit. Most are limited to 50-60F.

About the condensation, I have to say there will none. It would be extremly hard to get condensation to form. Why? Because of a few reasons:
  • The AC unit, like fishie said, blows out almost completly dry air. When air gets cold, it loses mosture. Ever notice water dripping from under a car in the summer, or on an AC unit? It's water from the air being cooled.
  • You would have to professonally tape and insulate the CPU from the room in order to get the 20-30C temp difference to make condensation form. Since the CPU and the room are being cooled, the CPU will never be more than say 5-8C from the room temp.

I get near ambient temps with my Tuniq, so it's not all that unrealistic. His CPU is lapped too, so that cuts off a few degrees.

I don't know how to perform trickery in this. My AC limits the air to 62F. I just installed the things and turned it on and got those temps.

7C idle is insane. I'm saying the AC unit won't cool that low. Most AC units are made to only drop down to 60F anyways.

7C is 44F, I just don't think that number is correct.

That's air temp. When an object gets cold, doesn't it stay cold for a while? I think when it got cold, the cold air still blew at it and it got cooler.

You can't cool something (using air) below abiment temps without some sort of evaporation.
