Overclock on -18 temps , questions

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello!
i'm planning on putting my PC outside where it's currently -18 and then i'm planning to overclock it.
So my question is is that a good idea? Would other components freeze on such temps?
Also how much can my processor go max voltage , i don't want to burn it .
Thanks

No you are not. Because that's a really bad idea unless you like fires.

It's cold enough out then when you bring your warm toasty computer outside it's going to condense, create plenty of moisture for a short. Sparks will fly and a good chance your PSU will catch fire.

Oh yeah , you got point there!
And what If I cool it off first , not use it for few hours , then put it outside and fire it up? Still a bad idea?

OCing outside is fine. You might want to think about stuffing some paper towels around the socket area like we do with dry ice. I'm guessing you are on air cooling, so max volts would say maybe 1.6v or so.

Something like this:

Condensation happens on cold things in warm environments, not the other way around. The problem is when he brings it inside. He just need to let it warm up for a few hours.

There is nothing wrong with stuff freezing. Everything works better cold smile.gif, except hard drives (you might actually have and issue with those).
