Rig inside a room or outside (balcony)

Hey guys,

its summer time, getting 35-40c outside (23c in the shade), the room i have the rig in is like a sauna, and i have a pretty big balcony, with a cool area not exposed to the sun.

i was thinking of moving the rig outside to the balcony - what do you guys think ?

i should ofcourse clean the fans every Friday with the air spray.

You would be better off trying to find a way to vent the room. It would be too risky out on a balcony. Ignoring temp issues, all sorts of critters could make their way into it. What if there’s a crazy hurricane like storm and the rain decides to go sideways hitting the machine? :wink:

If u find a solution it will be interessting

Choose inside because for many reasons. Cool the room with the cheapest air conditioner and you are good to go. GL

it looks nice, i`ll be doing something similar, but i fail to understand how does he get cool air inside… i see nothing on the sides to create it… and on 35c outside i highly doubted any air will come in…

better hope no risers catch fire… hope he is using ver006 or above without the extensions

So this is what i did eventually

is that top vent waterproof?
it looks clean, but did you test itwhen it’s raining?

Dont need to, its a closed space, there’s a roof on top just like a room, and i got about 7-8 meters away from an open space.

also, i live in Israel, rain is not due until December :slight_smile:
