Air cooled overclocking records in polar vortex?
Those looking to set some individual air cooled overclocking records might just take your system outside tomorrow somewhere in the mid-west and crank up the voltage and the CPU multiplier. Shouldn't be any cooling issues. The high temperature in Chicago tomorrow will be -15, the low -23. You could get some wicked cooling with that ambient.
Of course, you'll have to find some way to operate the computer (fingers/mouse) at those temps (at least for the duration of your benchmark). Not sure if a screen will work at those temps. Maybe CPU outside, video and USB cables leading inside
