yeah except for the fact the window AC units I know of are based on water vapor. Swamp coolers and such =) my friend has a tiny little $150 window AC and it gets his room nice and cold, but yeah that works off of water vapor....leave it on too long and the air gets bogged down because of ice crystals forming lol

I have an air vent right next to where my computer will be, and I could re-route the airflow to the inside of my case, but would that harm anything? Remember it's the whole house cooler.

I also had an idea of running a copper tube through a cooler of ice... and routing it to the comp. I g2g class is letting out.
