i seperated the cold from the hot radiator on my dehumidifier.
they are usually close together i guess.
made a duct to suck the air in from the cold radiator into my side panel with a 92mm Mpanaflo 38cfm

rig in sig, stock HS and fan.

natural air, running all my fans 4 92mm M panaflo's 1 120mm panaflo M

humidity inside case 29%
IDLE
CPU- 38/100 MB 22/71
LOAD
CPU 52/125 MB 22/71


now for the readings with the cold air machine

humidity inside case 42%
IDLE
CPU 26/78 MB 9/48
LOAD
CPU 40/104 MB 9/48



one thing i have concluded is that my stock HS is not that great

Yeah but if I understand what he said its not a waterchiller but a air chiller hehe, he takes air from the cold side of the dehumidifier and brings it in his case.
