    Would prpbably cause condensation to form and short out/blow the motherboard or other components. I'm sure its been tried before, but was not too sucessful.

    you will short your components from moisture.. not unless your ambient temp is well below 15 centigrates OR provided your pc is vacuum inside, and you wont be opening it.

    Not too close though.. you will be risking your hardrive's life.. a fan with that size emits a strong magnetic force that may destroy your harddrive.

    most often either condensation forms, or you blow out the cooler since it cant take the heat.

    Just get an air conditioner in the room and all is well (not one of the ones that increase humidity tho)
