No not necessarily...
So long as you have the standard case fans etc blowing in and out...
you will need to insulate the CPU, as a precaution, if nothing else....
he said he will put his PC outside....the ambient will be low - even with an average humidity (which he wont have if it's really cold - cold air cannot hold much moisture.) the frost point (dew point at minus temps.)
will be very low.
he will have to watch it when he brings it back in....but it will be turned off then - just need a dam good drying.
You will need to prevent the coolant in the rads from freezing - that would also apply to the water in the bucket.
And depending on what your expecting you might not need a powerful TEC either. The sheer volume of copper in Ultra's block will make it pretty efficient at low ambients.Edited by zipdogso - 11/28/09 at 9:22am
