I have a dedicated miner that this past year has evolved into a 5830x5 machine. I am looking for a better way to cool it than a series of fans that just pump hot air out into the room. Water cooling 5 gpus would be expensive, and I don't want to have to take apart all 5 of my cards to assemble the rig. Something like a mini AC unit that is 2" by 6" and sits in the case and does the best it can would be awesome. I could just drop it in the case and keep the existing fan structure without heating the room.

Has anyone else accomplished what I am looking to do? How and where do I find the parts?

Where would the heat go except into the room?

The only method to get heat out of the room is to have the exhaust (AC, ducting, radiator) outside the room.  Having an AC unit which sits inside your case would simply make the heat transfer between the interior and exterior of the case more efficient. 

Energy in = Energy out.  No way around that fundamental concept.

also using a AC would increase power usage.
best way is to have your miner close to a window and try to vent the heat outside. (add to global warming Smiley )
i did this all summer, and it dropped the temperature of the room signifigantly. (I have 4 rigs 9x5830's 6x6970's 1 6990 & 1 5970)
dropped the temp for 38 deg C to a more manageable 28Deg C
