Let’s face it, watercooling a PC isn’t the easiest of tasks, since it requires blocks for the parts you want to a cool and a pump, reservoir, as well as enough radiator space inside the case for the components. That’s not even including assembling the hard tubing is moderately annoying to assemble, but what if you wanted an outside the box method? Using a window-mounted air conditioner is one option, although may be even more work to setup. Read more to see why.
One advantage of using typically window-mounted device is that the air is quite dry and clean. The biggest task was just creating a duct to attach to the 5,000 BTU air conditioner, which means it won’t interface with the CPU cooling block, but rather just force cool air into the case. Does it actually work well enough to cool a computer? Well, they were able to disconnect some of the stock fans since the temperatures stayed cool even when the PC was overclocked.
