Its winter in Illinois.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I hate the cold just as much as everyone, but I figured I'd take advantage of it. The main rig is going outside!!!! I will post pictures and such after I done. I hope to get my e7200 4.2ghz. Might even do some tweaking to my 5770.

This is just a heads up to everyone so that you can subscribe/bookmark and what not and keep up with my experiment.

unfortunately it "warmed" up a little since this idea came to mind. It was 6F last night but now it's 20F ish.

LOL, Watch out for that snow. I just crack the window and have a fan blowing the cold air on my rig. I dont have the money to replace parts.

I know the feeling. Tax return is around the corner though. I think I could handle going back to my laptop if I kill my main rig though.
