Safe to run PC in freezing room? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
Folding temps wont be the same as prime95 temps ill be getting, plus im trying to eliminate heat as a factor in my lack of ability to get stability.

No problems with what you are doing and it is true.. the colder the better, but if you 'tune' your pc to the current temp and set overclocks accordingly there is no guarantee those same settings will be stable in a room with normal temperatures.. such as in your house.

This is your only concern about condensation ^. Condensation happens when cold things are in a warmer ambient (the specific temperature has to do with the delta between the two and the humidity).

yeah dude if your doing a stability test just test where the damn thing is going to be running ..in fact turn you heater up a lil extra then run your tests and set your overclocks..head room is a good thing your not only eliminating your head room your taking away from your normal operation conditions!
what your doing is useless to you unless your going for a limited run extremely high oc to bench with then bring back down...
its great for scoring high in benchmarks but dud it worthless to you as a stability test
of course you can ignore me(im mean what do i know look i have no rep!) set your overclocks at that temperature run inside the next day and have it crash uner load and post a new thread crying"my overclock isnt stable but it was last night?
go ahead ill wait...lol

Your avatar is so relevant.

I don't think it would hurt the CPU.

ive turned everything off and brought it all back into my room. There is slight condensation on the sides of the wooden stand and on the side of my h60 rad. The rest of the pc looks good. Gonna leave it overnight to dry out and warm up then put it back to normal. Dont wanna risk it.

Just keep a couple fans blowing across the motherboard, as long as there is air moving you'll be fine. I did this last winter, my room was around 25*F.

That condensation occurred when you brought it into the house. As long as it was warmer than surrounding air it could not collect condensation. But when you brought it into warm room it's cooler than surrounding air and moisture condenses out of the warm air when it hit the cold surfaces.

Just ask anyone who wears glasses in a cold climate. lol wink.gif

it will be ok though to run in the morning once its warmed/dried out?
post #20 of 24
No.. You need to send it all to me and buy yourself a whole new system. biggrin.gif

Of course it will be fine to run it in the morning. If you can, set it so there is some air movement over it tonight to help move the moisture away. Kinda like drying cloths. wink.gif
