I had the same thought. I have the privelige of having a super hot room in the summer, but also a super cold room in the winter (its been downto 57 in my room). I'm thinking I could OC much much harder, just for kicks.

Oh, I know! My room is upstairs and we all know that heat rises. In the summer there are days when I just wont turn on my computer because it is simply too hot for it up there. However, in the winter, I am sitting up in my room with a coat and stocking hat playing video games. One year I had frost building up in the corner. No joke!

as long as it stays at that temperature. I don't think it will hurt it. Everything except the hardrive would love it.
