Hah pretty much. Although we haven't hit 100 here yet, it's an unusually cool summer.
For the most part it has only gotten to the 90s... But it's not the temperature that gets you, it's the humidity hah.
ATM the highest it gets is about 85 which is really cool for us. We have a cold front atm with lots of rain and clouds so it feels nice

It's a good idea but when you actually work out all the costs...
About $7+ just to ship it back and forth. Then lapping can take anywhere from 1-4 hours. Multiply that by minimum wage and that's a lot just to pay someone to lap your heatsink / cpu lol.
Tankguys do it exactly that though. But i believe them to be out...
