Actually, its only cold by my window (where my desk is, and the window is closed). But when it gets really cold over here, I just start up [email protected] or a game to generate some heat.
It also does not help that my room is terribly insulated, it is hot in summer and cold in winter.

I did that a few weeks ago. Though my OC will not go any higher stable, since my damn board does not allow VCore adjustments.

I'm actually going to do this. Just opened my window, closed the door. It's -30 out.

We'll see how cool my PC can get. Will take pics.

After 5 minutes. Didn't want to let all of the heat out of the house so I stopped. I'd like to see how cool it could get outside though

^ If I can get a day here in Alberta where it's -45 or colder with wind chill, I'll set up my pc outside and take you up on that offer.
