It is so hot right now in Athens that you can't touch the window. And I thought 30 (86 F) was hot!
(45 C is 113 F for those on the other side of Atlantic) We're having a heat wave, maybe coming from Africa.

Its going to be in the 90s the rest of the week here in New Hampshire (USA) but with that type of heat I would shut down the computer so it doesn't over heat.

The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

Shut down?   :o   Just remove the side panel and place a fan blowing into it. Shut Down your Computer? I would go into DT's  ;D

Hey, Will -

You're in New Hamster? I used to work in Nashua.

I spent a lot of time climbing while I lived there. I did over 20 peaks in the White Mountains as winter solos. I was the first (probably not the only, by now) to do a solo traverse of the Northern Presidentials in February. It was sub-zero with an 80 mile an hour wind, gusting to 100+, the day I topped out on Washington.

Bike racing at Sunnapee, climbing the Presidentials - yeah, New Hamster was fun.

;D

Now that's a good idea. I wouldn't shut down my computer too - only reboot every week or two, unless there is a power failure, longer than 10 minutes (my UPS limit). A technician friend once told me that the change of temperature and the hard disk thrashing (if that's the word) on shutting down and reopening does more harm, especially for the HD.

Well since I'm not the one pay electric bill I am often ordered to turn of my PC so I guess this is all my personal bias then :P

I am the west end of the house so the sun hits the wall creating radiant heat in my area where the PC is. I have been thinking about getting a water cooled unit. I have to price some of them to see what i can afford so honestly i have not been doing hardly squat on my PC for the last month.    :(

Will

I wonder if water-cooling units are really worth it though.

They are, i know a few people who have them. It's more efficient then any fan. I mean you could get a very high RPM Fan but it would be so noisy that i know i would get annoyed after a short time.

Will

or you could put it in a refrigerator...just a thought  ;D
