    Temps 35 mins. after booting. Only one electrical socket in my study bristling with plugs - hedgehog style - so no heater unless I use extension cable. GPU @ 28C is like having liquid cooling. :D
    World Cup soccer taking place here so I have an incentive to abandon Desktop and watch in a warmer room. :argh:

    Oh do rub it in while I suffer immensely in this hot Indian summer which is humid and nasty. Bad for vampires like me.

    Sounds like my kind of region - I will either emigrate or hope for some kind of Fatal Error on Ubuntu which will have the effect of raisng my temperature to acceptable, read comfortable, levels.:D

    Too low temp is not good, acc. to Google.
    You should aim for ~30-35 degrees. Spin them up!

    Anything over 30C is death for me, its depressing, unproductive, just plain useless and it stinks.

    Ideal temps are 25C and above. Lower temperatures, 10 or below may create issues on consumer hardware products. In any case your temperatures are impressive, enjoy them...I have 30C in my room...unfortunately I avoid the use of air conditioning because of a health issue.

    Ocky,
    I'm a little fuzzy on this whole temperature thing. Are you bragging that your computer case is so cool, or is it actually cold where you live? If the latter, then welcome to my past winter. I froze my a** off most of the time...lost power for 5 days...lost a refrigerator full of frozen goods...it took me 3 days just to shovel my driveway out :'( . God, I hate winter. If the former, then please ignore my ramblings. I'm a little thick sometimes as most of you already know. :cautious: .

    Later...

    You can come here and have all that darned muggy, sweaty, filthy, smelly unproductive summer for all you want, just gimme sub zero temps where the Vampire in me can flourish and so do my CPU.

    Hello Trespasser,
    It's the latter, so much for the much vaunted "Sunny S. Africa". The Southern Cape area where we reside is damn cold in winter, sort of 'death' cold. Seems to get worse every year. Bit better today with noon ambient @ 16C so my hdd's are running @ 18/19C. No central heating in this country so it's log fires and gas heaters.
    You could have probably done without the refrigerator - just place the frozen goods and beers outside. :D

    It was 90 degrees F here in southwestern Virginia (Appalachian Mountains) , as well. Warmer tomorrow. But the nice thing is it will be with low humidity. :) . Earlier this week it was hot and very humid. One intense thunderstorm after another. You step outside...it felt like a steam cooker. It was almost unbearable.

    Later....

    I love summers in NYC. Give me the humidity and the 90+ temps, and I'm happy (although my laptop is struggling a little, 54c right now after being up for about 8 hours.

    mack, we're talking hard disk temp, not core.

    At the moment, my desktops are running:

    desktop 1: hdd1 41c, hdd2 48c (record numbers 46, 52)
    desktop 2: hdd1 42c, hdd2 38c (record numbers 48, 44)

    Winter figures:

    desktop 1: hdd1 31c, hdd2 37c (highest plus nominal spring autumn 39, 45)
    desktop 2: hdd1 29c, hdd2 33c (highest plus nominal spring autumn 32, 36)

    Cheers,
    Mrk
