Ambient Temp's are everything.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Wow, I never realized what a big deal the temp in your room meant for your cpu. Never really paid attn to temps much as I have never really OC'ed hard, but watching it these last few days as its gotten colder here in New York has made me realize that it's just as important as the rest of your cooling solution.
Temp went down from 40C yesterday to 33C this morning and now instead of running at 55C full prime95 with all fans blasting at 2.9Ghz 1.5vcore, its running at 50C same settings.

Ambient makes alot of difference..That's why people want to know your ambient when talking about CPU temp's...

No it went from more like 70F yesterday to like 45F this morning outside, but thats what speedfan is telling me my case(?) temp is. Not positive if its the case, mobo, or chipset, but it never rises much more than a degree or 2 and it went down from 40C to 34C today with no change cept the weather, so im assuming its the case temp.

Where the hell do you live to be that hot! I assume maybe Arizona or New Mexico?!

Its been a cool 58F here all day and gets down to 35F at night. So far the highs have been 75F

I was just joking.. .look at the original post. The way he said it made it seem that the temperature outside was that hot. I think now he meant to say it's his idle temps
