Personally, I use an evacuated, climate-controlled container. No atmosphere and sub zero temps ensure the finest gaming experience possible.


Actually this would be the last thing you would want to do. In vacuum the only mode of heat transfer is radiation, which is not very efficient. Overheating can actually be a problem in space. ;)

Radiative cooling is fine when ambient is sub-zero. Duh.

In a vacuum, there is no ambient temperature. So ambient isn't sub-zero. Hence, overheating.

Does watercooling make a noticeable difference in room temperature?

Best way to cool your computer in the short term? Liquid nitrogen or helium. Long term? Water cooling loop with a lot of radiator real estate in a room constantly cooled to slightly above freezing temps.

Air cooling with an efficient heatsink tends to be more cost-effective, but liquid cooling typically maintains more steady temps and is often better for overclocking.

My own preference is air tho.
