Default PC Air conditioner, what do you guys think?

A PC Air Conditioner, what will they come up next...

http://www.thinkgeek.com/pcmods/cooling/7a7a/

(PC Water Cooler?!)

It says it can cool the inside of your case up to 16F, I figured if I coupled that with my water cooling setup it might be kinda chilly inside there.

Was thinking it'd help quite a bit, but I don't know if I'm gonna get it, I need to find out if they sell a Silver one.

It lowers the temp up to 16F yes, but if you combine it with water cooling, the system temp will have a change mostly.

I've seen similar things. I think it's just a large blower...nothing really special.

Well, I've actually found cases that have a built in Air Conditioner.

So I don't know. Looks kinda fun.

That one is a honker, rofl. My Circle tower has a door on it, so that wouldn't work. I'm thinking about just getting the one I listed, and taking it apart, and spray painting it Silver. I think that would work.
