New cooling idea?

Wouldn't it be more productive if we put solid pipes from our case to the outside of our homes, so that the air going in the case is from outside and going out of the case is going straight outside? I think that will make a big differince if for example the air outside is 5C (in the winter) instead of room-temperature (20C). There will also be less dust going in the case.

Make sure to insulate the intake, as the cold in the pipe would reduce it's temp. to a average between air outside and air inside (the pipe) risking condensation.

I might do it, seeing as my pc is right next to the window

Wouldnt there be a problem because the air is moist outside?

yes ondensation and moisture is bad... but would be good for watercooled setups to cool the water

condensation would be well bad, just think of all those people without double glazed windows that end up with a huge puddle at the bottom. that could be your motherboard

it would be a good idea though for all you ppl up north and south
in the tropics.. outside air temp is 29-35 degress C so its not much of a difference.. one way would be to get a pipe from your air conditioners.....
put a mesh in the pipe and fill it with dry calcium chloride... which will absorb water....
its also really humid here so it doesn't work for me...

How about if you watercooled your pc. but instead of having radiators and fans and the like - you just ran a feed from your mains water supply thru a waterblock? There could be several advantages:

1) Mains water is always cool
2) Supurb flow rate
3) No need to worry about water furring up

I think the cons would be:

1) Pc needs to be near the water supply
2) Everything better be well sealed!
3) No good if you are on a water meter

I wonder if anyone has tried this?

might cost a bit to have a tap on full blast cooling your PC 24/7

Water meter my ass, they'd come down on you like a ton of bricks even if you weren't. If you don't believe me, go turn on the tap in your bath full pelt for a month.

I've seen this discussed elsewhere and I think it's usually outweighed by the unreasonableness of running the water supply 24/7.

hehe sounds a nice idea, it would be viable in this house because we get our water from a spring and it is always full + free thing is i dont need water cooling hehe

Anyhow, surely using mains water you'd get a huge build up of crap in the system/waterblock?
