Hi. I'm running a 62W Tec and a FPD32 Heatsink and a 38CFM Fan on a 600E. The Temp while idle is around -20 and 14 to 18 while running Prime95. So I'm wondering if it's dangerous when the Temp is -20 while idle? Any suggestion would be great.

Well, i've seen people have their cpu's at that temp... shouldn't be any problem.
But then maybe someone more experienced should give a better answer.
Duckman, #rotor or S_klass???

I have problems accepting those low-temps as accurate since my watercooler with TWO 90W peltiers don't get below -8C.....(do you use anu cooling software?? If yes, then DON'T, it'll kill yur CPU in no-time!!!)
Anyway, it's no problems with -20C as long as you have sufficient insulation on the CPU like this:

Sorry, I didn't hear you, I was staring at your breasts.

It's not dangerous to the chip but there is always the problem of ice/condensation forming if the chip is so cold. Condensation can lead to corrosion.
I don't know what people do to get around that but I guess they must have a solution.
