Re: The new computer build

I went for the old school "it's hot and this works" solution. Opened up the case and there is now small a fan blowing on low toward it from a good distance. Used the same thing back in the day (we're talking 2002 here) when it got to be even hotter than it is now. Looking at the graphs and numbers i...

Re: The new computer build

That airco solution unfortunately over here is a no go. One it is a rental, two we don't even have windows that are ready for window mounted airco's. Those things are extremely rare in this country. It's hotter where I am at actually ;) well over 35 outside.. humidity is reasonably at 43. But yeah.....

Re: Cool computer and a pretty good day

Oh I have done the snapshotting :) I have done two in fact since I got the new system up and running.

Re: The new computer build

Another cheap trick would be to add a fan to the front of the case, many cases will have a space fo...

Re: Cool computer and a pretty good day

MX Snapshot is one thing that on this day I am NOT running! Nuh uh, I don't even DARE :laugh: I am very glad I have the monitoring things set up! On a hot day the entire system is running 10 degrees higher per default. Logical.. it's 10 degrees warmer in the room. Mind, the bit about cooler solution...

Re: The new computer build
