Default Room temperatures Huge factor?

Okay so I know room temperatures play a factor in your computer temps, but I didn't think this much of a factor. With my tuniq tower 120 with MX-1 paste I got disapointing temps of 43-34 when idle for my q6600 and 50-40 at load. That was in the summer...today I woke up and its freezing outside as well as in my room and I checked my temps and it was 33-23 idle!!! 10 celcius difference? whoa.....room temps do matter! now I got the same temps as that one pdawg guy :P

Of course it's a huge factor. That's the air your computer is taking in, so it should directly affect it.

The room my computers are in are is always no colder then 74. Because of the 4 computers heat output..

I usually leave the windows open, although it is 40 degrees F outside.

Or if you live in a basement, most of the time is ideal, since it's usually cooler xD.
