beating the heat!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
summer has seen me idling at near my old load temp (40-43) and loading at the limit for my chip in rig below. and I have been getting restarts during gaming and such due to hitting the heat ceiling. is this dangerous? anyway to stop it, my case has good cooling to it but its just 86 bloody in my house atm. no central air and ac doesnt reach back to my room.
new toys, yay

Water Cooling is always an option, however it will only get as cool as your ambient room temp. Make sure your case doesnt have negative air flow. Meaning if the air isnt flowing in the same direction the heat will just circulate in the case. Other than that though your only real option is cooling your room temp, or getting a new cooler.

+1 or....

downclock all your parts until the heat goes away.

i know lots of people who downclock just to have less heat.
