Default I <3 snowy days

We don't get very many snowy days in Texas, but we did today, and I decided to take full advantage of it.

My ceiling fan is on high, my window is wide open, my case side panel is off. Results?

Idle:



Load



Thank god for my winter coat

It's times like when you rather want yourself to feel cold than your cpu to feel warm that you know you spend too much time with your pc.

Nice temps!

That is a bit of a ridiculous idea but I guess it works pretty well haha. As long as you don't mind freezing to get good temps.

I've thought about doing that for a while now. But i would perish lol. Im way up in the northern part of canada, for the past few days it has been about -38 celsius -50 with the wind chill. It would be cool if i could get the air to flow just in my case not the whole room.

Yeah, it was kind of chilly.
