Default question about temperature

i have a question that may be dumb: if i improve my computer cooling system (cpu fan, case fans, etc...) will it emit less heat than it emits now? i can feel it raises temperature in my room (which is pretty small) for a few degrees, so i wonder if i put some case fans and some quality cpu cooler could that make the situation any better?

I don't think it would. In fact I think your computer would emit more heat as you 'make better' the computers cooling system. But you need to get rid of hot air out of your computer anyway.

That's semi-conductors for ya. There not 100% efficient and the heat they generate has to go somewhere.

Bring on the super-conductors!

It wouldn't produce less heat but the heat it produced would be disappated more efficiently.
