ello guys

I was just wondering how many other people drop clocks during the heats of summer temps where i am hit 28 today. motherboard temp hit 33 and idle cpu hit 37. this was on stock mind you so i think im going to keep them low for awhile lol. Mind you i did just put artic silver 5 in for the first time. i hope its just the hot weather and me not applying it right. anyway off topic how many people drop clocks in summer and by how much??...i went from 4.0ghz back to stock 3.3ghz lol

We hit 33c here on Saturday, without aircon on my 4.6Ghz 2600k hit 30c @ idle and 55c @ load with SilverArrow. I'll leave the clock as is I think.

yeh wouldnt bother if your temps are like that...its weird cause a few days ago i was 4.1 max at 49c @ with prime 95....so im going to keep mine on stock and may considered redoing the heat paste to make sure i didnt stuff up...it was the first time applying this stuff so i wasnt to sure how much to use...i didnt put any on the block but there was plenty on the cpu so i dunno...guess it was pretty hot inside if the mb hit 33c

Where I live you pretty much have to unless you have aircon .
Our Sunshine comes at a price !
With high 30s Celsius ambient temps 40 to 50 Celsius load temps just do not happen .

I usually turn on power-saving stuff in the summer to auto-underclock the CPU when I'm not in front of the machine. Seems to help a little.

I never drop the clocks.

My temps don't fluctuate that much. It's 72F in my computer room right now. CPU is set to go no lower than 1800MHz, sitting at 32C right now.

My computer/TV room is Currently at 28c my CPU temp is 51c (bios) at stock clocks - so when summer kicks in I could not keep a heavily overclocked PC cool without liquid cooling .
