It just like putting an A/C in your PC.

what you do is get one of those mini freezers in your room, and you get a water cooling system.

you run the radiator piece in the freezer with the lines going to it. that way the fluid in the tubes will always stay COLD.

lol i have an idea...
take the tic-tac containers and wrap them in saran wrap! you must like replacing shorted out components. don't be such a cheap ***, and buy some decent cooling.

You could always move to Alaska, and just keep your windows open. You could prob do without a heatsink in the winter.

Once again, there's science involved. If you move to Alaska, you need to seal off from the environment and use an A/C to cool the room. Leaving the window open will bring in MOIST cool air and the air will condensate and fry your lovely computer.

no condensation is not ionized. have you taken chemistry yet? you oughtta know that the bonds in the water molecule are polarized, not ionized, so it can still conduct electricity and short your components.
