Will a CPU's Temperature Stop Coolant From Freezing? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
Yeah, it gets kinda cold in the winter.. it only gets down to -20 F a few times a year, so I was thinking that I could just watch the forecast and up the clock or slow the fans down to make the coolant stay warm. Also it will be in a rack, which retains a bit of heat. I wanted to see what your guy's opinion was on running water cooling in winter temps.

Yeah condensation has come up on my mind, but the rack is near the rear of the garage, and I've had a few air cooled servers in there for a couple years now, and I haven't had an issue... We will see how it goes though! smile.gif

Condensation isn't an issue unless the water cooled parts become colder than the air around them.
