Not more space for your rig or a better carpet to stand on?
Maybe a cooler room or better outdoor temp?

Sadly no...the place I was renting was huge and a nice place...just wasnt putting any equity into it, got tired of paying someone else's mortgage.

also the last place was actually cooler due to about 30 huge oak trees, now I've got one corner of the house thats shaded

BUT its your house, now you can drill a hole in a wall and hang your radiator outside so that you have nice cool temps in winter time biggrin.gif

But that would require water cooling...also that's only potential performance increase, not actual...yet. Same as saying I could go phase change.

Hahaha $600 CPU!!! ?? What CPU is that?!! And to be honest, I spent around $1500 on my computer last year for dota2 and diablo iii, both games don't eve scratch the surface of my computer lol

Like I said now I just spent $1000+ on making it look cool, but I did upgrade the video card!!! 😒
