    Ice case cooling?

    I had a crazy idea, what if I were to take a cup of ice, and somehow make a duct to blow the cold air comming off the ice into the computer. would it work? Ive got some stuff laying around, and I thought it would be a cool experiment, I was just wondering if it would make the case wet on the inside.

    better watch out for condensation is my 1st thought
    And as for the point i dont understand as it would surly be a short term solution.

    Howver many have ad an AC duct blowing air into the system to help keep it cool

    i dont think just plain ice would do anything, dry ice maybe, but just plain ice, doesnt seem like the air around it would be ever cold enough
