Overall Cost Wise, Water Cooled Vs Air Cooled?

Thanks everyone so far for your input on my questions, my next one


Water cooling lights, is the extra equipment and cost worth the benefits? Vs traditional air cooling?


Specifically on 1K bulbs and when using three. In a 15x13 area.


Water cooling requires the water to be housed in a rez, and then chilled with a water chiller, which amounts to nothing more than AC for your water. When you calculate this in with the power consumption there is no discernible difference.


However, if you crunch some important numbers, there is a way to water cool your lights, and room, and eliminate A/C / cold air intakes and save money. You gotta put in some work though, should be easy to figure out. :P
