Vent To Attic

Hello,
Looking for some advice. I have a music studio at home and needed to isolate my recording environment from fan noise from my computers. I've rellocated my 3 computers into my studio closet and installed a fan which draws cool air from the basement (grill at the bottom of the closet) and vents it out into another room. Now it's really annoying to hang out in that other room because it's a little too noisy.
My question is this: Is it a bad idea to vent this fan to the attic? Would the transfer of warm-ish air from the house to the attic have some unintendid consequence that I can't think of?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Luc

There is the potential problem of moisture in the winter. How much of a problem depends on a number of factors like your local weather, attic ventilation and the amount of moisture coming into that room from the basement.
I would suggest venting it through the attic to the outside.

Thanks for both of your respsonse. And quick. I knew that something didn't sound quite right about venting directly into the attic. I live in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada (just outside of Toronto) so it does cold in winter. I was originaly going to place the fan in the attic and vent out my eve troughs but when I went up there I saw that there wasn't much room to work. I think I'll just have to resign myself to doing it that way. Thanks again for the advice.

You can also get a KVM switch - or just an extension - & run a 20' cable (and a midi cable) and get some distance. You won't want REALLY high resolution but 1024x768 should be fine.
Now, you're not using a CRT in a live mic area are you?
I'm also picky about power supplies. Antec promises 5V and gives 5V where others offer 5 and give 4.5 under stress which makes for core dumps and unhappiness. (and yes, all the ATX PS voltages per normal).
Nicely, my current PSs have fan controls. when it's hot, the fans kick on a bit more. Better: when it's NOT hot, it's fairly quiet.
Larger fans move the same are with less noise.
Laptops of today are as powerful as last years desktop. My mail server is a P/233 laptop in a cabinet with the lid open a couple inches. It serves 40 people imap and webmail.
