Is there any rules that say I cannot run my rig outside for these oc comps? -26 here and the only thing good about that is cold computers haha

Not at all! I used to do that a lot. I have a basement office, with a window that looks out to underneath my front porch, so I can put rigs outside and just run the cables into my office where I stay toasty and warm. I even lined the underside of my porch in the area around the window with tarp so that I wouldn't have to stop benching just because it was snowing outside!

A few degrees??? It's -30 here haha. My dog looked at me last night before bed and I swear he was thinking "maybe I should just shit in the house, I'm sure the beating will be less painful then going outside" haha

Just kidding my dogs retarded it could be -50 and he would still think it's a nice day to jump the fence and patrol for bitches

But I thinknow DT is onto something there :)

Yeah, absolutely! A 50C swing in ambient temperatures makes a huge difference! I can run LGA115* i7's at about 10-20C while benching full load with 1.6v+ to the core on a simple 280 AIO.

Just subbed this outside. GTS 250 on Corsair H70, vGPU mod to 1.42v (from 1.2v stock). Core temp never got above 30C during benchmarking (outside temp -6C). Goes to show how effective the 'sticking the rig outside' methodology really is.

Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future.

With Richard Lewis on keyboard, apparently???
