I just got home from class and noticed my PC crashed after I put it to sleep, not sure how that keeps happening, sleep just won't work. I looked over to my window and fan controller and noticed a water temperature of 45C! Very alarming, I instantly turned the fans to full speed and opened my windows. (my fans were at about 50% and windows were closed).
Now as I stated earlier, my window is facing south-west, so I get a lot of sun. Even though it's very cold today (for Dallas standards, ~10C), the sky is clear blue. The sun is shining hard on my radiators and with closed windows and curtains, I think it really starts to heat up the air in between the window and the fans on the backside of the radiators. The radiators probably also get fairly warm. So right now I'm idling with closed window and fans at full speed and the water temperature is about 30C, which is really warm even for under load, let alone idle. Of course, no worries, I could always open the window and let the radiators be cooled by 10C outside air, but it is still a small concern.
There is about 3.5cm between the fans and the window. So I guess the trapped air heats up and thus I'm blowing warm air through my radiators. Also, sun is shining on my radiator, what effect does radiator temperature have on the liquid temperature I wonder?
This is slightly concerning though, especially when summers here are HOT. How am I suppose to cool my stuff in July when it's 40C outside and full sun? I'll obviously turn the fans to blow air outside with windows open, but the radiator heating might still be an issue.
Furthermore nothing really changed, haven't done any cable management yet
, had a BF4 LAN in this room with 2 other people (3PCs) and the room didn't get hot at all thanks to opening a window and letting Nature Chill my PC and thus my room
