I live in texas!! The house is at 75-80 degrees, while my room is close to 90.. (with ac on)


My door is always closed at night, so yeah it gets really hot.


The other computer is an athlon xp, which runs at 55C all day and theres also a x1650gt which is running from 55C-60C all day. Its in my closet but i keep the door open, so all the heat expands into the rest of my room.

I would get one of those window units, but my window wont fit one (too big).

Are you sure you don't mean 25 cubic feet?

nope. ...i would have meant cubic feet if that had been the original measurement we were discussing...NVM... lol, i was just saying....here ya go
..."(the floor of)...my mom's car trunk (lincoln towncar) is bigger than 25 square feet". which means it is bigger than a 5 x 5 square. which it isn't i dont think, but it was a joke in the first place. thanks for getting it. lol.
you're thinking math, i'm thinking english.

25 square feet is believable.

I used to have a really big room when i lived at my moms.....it was like 18x18??

It was the master bedroom. I also had a small storage closet that was empty, it was always really cool and i could have put a mini-folding farm in there.

In the room i had a king size bed , pc desk, piano, tv with stand and still plenty of room to walk around and have people chillin with me.


But ive since downgraded to the tiny 10x10 lol.

Its all good, when i get my own apt ill have plenty of space.
