High Humidity Concerns
I recently purchased a new rig, and I am having some concerns over potential problems that could be caused by high humidity.
I live in like the rainiest city in Hawaii, and one of the rainiest in the country at that. It's pretty tropical, so it is pretty muggy and warm a lot.
I have been getting mixed feedback locally about possible precautions to take, but thought I would see if anyone here had some experience or advice. For instance, people have told me to keep the pc running (powered on) so that it keeps warm and doesn't allow the air to condense into moisture or something along those lines... Has anyone ever heard of this?
At least I have the tower in an open, well ventilated area, and there is a good amount of airflow in the room it is in. I am looking into a dehumidifier, but I am a poor college student, so I don't know if I could afford a decent one that would be powerful enough for the whole room, not to mention the electric bill (electricity prices in hawaii=crappy).
Does anyone have any advice on computer upkeep/maintenance/precautions that would be worthwhile in high humidity environments, or am I overreacting?
