Q:
Hi, So I have a gaming laptop and it runs VERY HOT, when used for high performance tasks. I have a thought in mind on how to cool it but i have a question that i need an answer for. Can a computer run just as well in dry air? i designed a mechanism to pump cold dry air into my laptop. The reason behind the dry air is if you pump in air conditioned air with humidity it will mess up the pc. So dry air was my solution.
