Can you get below ambient temperatures with air cooling? I know this isnt possible but a friend of mine just won't believe me. It is impossible to get the thing being cooled to go below the temperature of the air your using to cool with. If that happened, the thing that was being cooled would start cooling the air, and to cool the air, it would need to be generating heat that is lower than ambient temperatures. We all know that processors put out heat, not cold. Generating energy from no source is impossible.
