Windows 7: Hardware Air conditioner (Condensation?)

Hardware Air conditioner (Condensation?)

Condensation question:

My Computer case sits next to an extra air conditioner grate in the floor.
it puts out pretty cold air.

Normally I block it, because it makes my desk extra cold, But I was thinking about channeling the flow of air into my CPU Case.

I was wondering, If I channeled the full cold air from the air conditioner
right into my Case, with some sort of small cardboard duct,

Is there a chance that the hot temp inside my Case and the cold air from the vent would form condensation inside my computer ?


Opinions, Discuss, please ^ ^

Condensation is formed when warm air is cooled and accumulates on the cooler surface. Air coming from an AC vent has been through the condensation process and has very low relative humidity.

YMMV.

OP: Your system will love the cool air. IF your AC unit is working properly.

Use a dryer duct - it is flexible and designed for a similar application. You can even buy a swage duct from your local hardware store.

Clarified to address the possible inference that I am joking. I am not. Thanks for the rep, upright walking cat rat thing.
