My plan for my Challenge XL is to vent the hot air coming out the top 
out the window with some ducting. The heat transfered through the 
machine will be handled by the AC (which is capable of keeping the room 
(430sqft) at 10C all summer (with about 20 pc's running).

Thankfully the building manager is fairly clueless and is charging me a 
ridiculously low amount for power.

And winter is coming, so free AC ;-)
