Temperature conscious overclockers, room temp?
So a lot of overclockers are very conscious of CPU and case temp to get the highest overclockability and I guess just the psychological satisfaction of having a lower readout.
I was gone for a bit and when I came back, the room this computer is in was up to 86°F (30°C)
I started up my computer and my Athlon 1.4 GHz quickly went to 53°C and case temp was up to 35°C in a matter of minutes.
Air conditioner was just turned on and the room is down to 82(28°C) and my CPU dropped to 49°C, case to 31°C
Already did the best you could to lower the temp of your power guzzling computer?
Air conditioner is your friend
