its just about the only thing i don't like about the heat the summer.

When you AC in the house can't keep up... your Computer over heats too fast.

Mind you playing BF2 prolly isn't the best thing for my card.

So I thought... in my next house... I'll try and lay out my office so that the tower, sits right beside the vent :) 

Then i thought... Hey. thats an idea. screw the water cooling set ups... you can't beat an A/C vent pluged right into your machine.

Anyone here wanna market it?

The warm air will precipitate excess moisture quickly. Any cool spot will become a condensation point.
The smart thing to do, would be to vent the case to outside. This would keep the room (air supply) cooler.
A 6 inch duct, with an inline 40 cfm fan should work ok, or connect the duct to a central vacuum system. That way, you could keep the insides of the case clean at the same time.

Needless to say.. im playing outside.

Just went for a bike ride in my neighborhood... 30 min, came back Soaked... felt great... but i had to wait for the sun to go down.

Im not about to go Mountain biking for 2-3hr in this heat.

I feel sorry for those who have bought prescott computers from OEm's like Dull; already insufficant cooling systems, heated rooms in the summers, and dust in the heatsink, not to mention warranty void if you open the case to clean out the dust. That's a real bad combination :p
