surely the water vapour only condenses when it hits cold surfaces?

the reason ur mirror steams up when you have a v. hot bath is because it is cold, not hot.

Have you ever had a cold drink sitting out where it's warm,It will start getting condinsation on the outside,It's pretty much the same that can happen to your comp.

It's the same thing just vice versa

thats because the water vapour in the air is condensing onto the cold surface of the drink container.

if you take a warm drink outside on a cold day you dont get condensation do you?

in the computer we have cold air touching warm surfaces...

my dad says that you would have no condensation while running, but as soon as you switch off, the outside, humid air would be stuck inside ur pc, warm up, condense, and then drip... drip...

you would have to draw inside air for 5mins before you shut down to solve this problem

Talking two parts

I have got an idea,
You can put the computer in two parts one part inside the room
the other part outside the room

The warm drink out side in really cold weather will freeze very fast.
