I am a new member, but that is not important right now.
I came to an idea for cooling my case, and when I googled it, I could not find anything similar. Most likely solution is that i am overlooking some problem that people already thought about. I would like to hear your comments.
Let me explain my situation first. There are three computers in the room. Room temperatures are around 30-35 C in summer and around 25 in winter. Spring and autumn are around 20C. My problem is loud noise from computers, and still inadequate inside temperatures. Water cooling is not am option, because of the price for three of them, one unified system for all three is still expensive, and makes them then unmovable from the room. Idea in essence is removing noise from the room.
So, I was thinking to make an intercooler for handling the air outside and adding it into the case on one or few locations (around cpu, gpu and ram (that is not actively cooled). I was thinking to use an automotive air to air intercooler to cool outside air, that is sucked in the intercooler trough automotive air filter using the automotive cabin blower motor. Diameter of the intercooler inlet/outlet would most likely be in the neighborhood of 2.25". I also intended an axial fan to propel the air trough the intercooler in warmer months (it could be toilet ventilation fan of some smaller automotive cooler fan. When all components are 12v, some dedicated atx power supply can supply all of them (10-15Amps for cabin blower, and 15-20 amps to cooler fan @12v is not a big deal). Some people have calculated that a 200x200mm intercooler could lower outside temp for 10-15 degrees when used with axial fan. With outside temp of 35, that is 15 and that could be helpful in the cooling process. That pipe would then be divided in three, insulated and sent to each of the cases.
First problem is moisture in the air. There are a few solutions that can easily available in some countries, filters made of silica gel, active alumina, and some not so much available but excellent in the process of dehumidifying the air like molecular sieve, grade 3A.
Question to which I have not found the answer on the web is, if I introduce cold dehumidified air in warm environment with relative humidity of 20% (computer case), should I expect condensation? If the answer is no, all of my problem are solved, and I can enter component gathering phase, if no, than I still have a problem
