How do you manage summer temps?

Just wondering if you guys change up your cooling configurations in any way to better cope with summer temperatures. If so how or what do you do? Has anyone found additional radiators helped? What sort of temps do you experience in summer? It's actually coming into winter where I live but I am still on a mission to figure out how to beat the summer heat during that season...

You try your best to schedule setting your oc during warmer weather. If you can't, warm up the room a bit.

Air conditioning. That might be overkill for NZ though.

The struggle is real. I accidentally forgot to turn on the ac last night. House warmed up to 84 overnight. Kicking myself in the ass because i'm having trouble pushing the limits because the house is still at 80 despite setting the thermostat to 72.

Open the window half open usually does it. Or have windows open on both sides of the house and hope there is some wind to help things along.
Last resort is to have the floor fan directed at you in the background just for the breeze effect even if temperatures stay high.

I live in FL so the house basically stays the same temp of 76 all year except for the couple days we get cool weather in Winter. No adjustments needed here.

Worst case, you could buy yourself one of those roll around a/c units for your pc room. It just needs a window for the exhaust but work pretty good. I use one for my garage during the summer.

I don't really see a way to make any substantial modifications to a setup to reduce loop temp. Ambient is king, you don't control that no matter what season, you control nothing. You could add a chiller, which would add more heat to your room anyway, you could increase fan speed, but that wouldn't matter in the end if the ambient is warm. AC is your only option. You could remove filters and panels to ease air flow restriction which would help, but ultimately a summer without AC is just hot.

Sounds like Wisconsin. I like to open some windows at night and close them during the day. Have to check the weather first though, have had a few pretty cold mornings

I do have a window air conditioner, but only use it a few days a year. Things were a lot worse when I ran sli. I had to put a fan in the door of my room.
