Well an ambient temp is the tempurature AROUND the part, like the air inside your case. But not the actual CPU/GPU/HDD etc.

Ambient is most of the time room temp so theres no good or bad since it doesn't really change unless you turn on heater or A/C lol.

I though you asked me this in the "whoa 35C cpu temp" thread?

lol, did you not believe me?

Ambient = existing or present on all sides. So an ambient temp would be the current temp of "whatever" ATM. Since your current room temp IS the ambient air intake source for your PC it will always effects your case temp.
The need to distinguish ambient room/case temps generally comes in handy when asking others for help with overheating problems.

I like your style - Kudos

I'd rep you for that one, but you specifically requested otherwise.
