Ok Im thinking about having the air from my A/C vent pour into my computer, heres how i see things coming around.

Im going to run the tube from the vent down to my computer which is no more than 8 feet away from the computer, im going to cut a hole in the side of my case and run the tube into there, and have it blow the nice 72 degree air into my computer directly. A few questions....

1. Will i get condensation!??!
2. Does this layout sound good or is there a better way.
3. The air coming out of the vent isnt that strong and i dont know how strong it would flow after 8ft of tubing, how can i increase the flow by adding a fan of some at the base of the vent blowing down?
4. Anyone know any good articles/links discussing a/c cooling

Thanks folks

You might get condinsation if your A/C is at 72*. When your air cycle's off then there wont be any cool air.
Just my opinion. Good luck.
