Seriously? They quote the law of thermodynamics and then talk about kinetics of fans? Physics doesn't work that way. The kinetic energy in fans consists of transients only. Meaning, when you first heat up your fan, some of the energy is being converted to kinetic energy and some to heat... Once it's up to speed, all the energy is converted into heat (via friction with the air and at the joints) and when you spin down your fan, guess where that energy goes... back into heat. So from the time you turn your fan on to when you turn it off, all the energy gets converted to heat. Not just some of it. All of it.

Would have loved if you would have bought a new radiator and retried this experiment.

I used to own a pc with an AMD HD4870, in a room that was around 30m3, when gaming in about an hour, the room temperature used to rise by 5 deg cel

just eat a gas station burrito and a giant pickle. as youre gaming, the heat wafts upwards...

Won't kinetic energy (generated by fans) and light energy eventually become heat if the room is closed?

You don't need a big water cooling set up to do this. Any setup, water or otherwise will have the exact same effect in a confined environment.
