Back when I used to live up north, during the winter I used to be able to close the door to my room, bundle up in some warm clothes, stick my computer in the open window and run at a nice chilly 7F. :santasmil Needless to say, much fun was had overclocking.
if i stick my cpu out the window its likely to melt in the summer...
in the winter its not much help.... because i never turn the heat on the outside temps are the same inside... plus i open my windows and turn on ceiling fans
It may be cold inside, but my office feel toasty because of the PC running with dual hard drive. I decide it is best to remove the side panel and stick a small household fan right next to it. The house fan seems to blow much better air even at lowest speed setting. I am looking for an even small box fan that use less energy. It seems to be the best technique. I unhook my CPU and exhaust fan since they are no longer needed.
It would be nice to live somewhere that is a little chilly year round. I don't like using the heater anyway, so I don't have to worry about the high utility bill. I figure that if the outside temperature is around 50, indoor plumbing should be safe and my PC would be my toasty heater.
