I envy you.
You live in a cold place and your computer runs cool.
I live in Brazil and here the weather is so hot that no matter what i do, my Athlon 700 is always in between 56C~59C.
I think i should put my computer inside the fridge.

Gee it get's pretty hot and humid here in Australia too. ;)
But that does sound a little excessive though. :eek:
Maybe some better cooling required. :?:

Well working in ye olde imperial measurements ;) it gets over 90F for 4 months of the year where I live, and above 100F for two months :flames:

And no aircon either here ;)

Wiggo, I think Youre right.
Albinus, ive never been to Australia. I think Ill buy a better cooling. Maybe 20 fans will do the job, amigo :-)
Lets talk about heat now.
Here where I live 43C (109F) is pretty common in December, January and February.
The other moths are not so hot, but the temperature is allways between 25C - 35C (77F - 95F)

What's the humidity like during those hot months?
if it is not too high, bong (evaporative) water cooling might work for you

come on down here ;)
for about 2 months (july and august), but always in August it's anywhere from 90-100F usually with 60%+ humidity

I'm sure yall that deal with humidity know, that you're soaked within a couple mins of being outside, and sweating doesn't cool you off with that humidity and no wind

thank god for AC and cold beer :sun: :beer: :cheers:

Do they make heatsinks and fans you can install on your person :laugh:

The humidity is high during those months. I live in a seaside town, so water cooling might not be the appropriate solution.
