    Hey! My room gets pretty warm when I have the monitor and computer on. At night I turn my monitor off, (and during the day when im not on it) and it cools it off a little, but my computer is putting off a lot of heat also.

    You think putting it back at 2500 speeds and disabling all the fans on it would help cool it down some?

    What's your CPU temp?

    Since getting my temp so much lower than the old 50 degrees my comp hasn't heated my room up too much anymore, but on really hot days it does.

    nothing really u can do except maybe take teh oc off and try to lower your vcore to make it run cooler.

    Actually, you need to consider the extra heat given out by the CPU and chipset by overclocking rather than running at stock speed. I think you'll find it is about 50W, which is far less than the monitor is giving out. You should certainly set your power settings to switch the monitor off after a couple of minutes idle, it is surprising how much difference that makes compared to one which is on most of the time, although I suspect you've already got a setting something approaching that.

    What else is giving off heat in the room?

    Light bulbs? Replacing a standard 100W bulb with a low power equivalent will save about 80W, all heat.

    Sound system? A good sound system can easily give off up to 30W in heat, even when "idle", another item you should consider turning off when not in use.


    Oh, and move to Alaska, it's a lot cooler there.

    Edit: btw, I opened the window at about the time I first posted the above. In the hour since, my mobo temp has dropped 2C and my hdd temp has dropped 4C.

    Oh, and the biggest heat source in the room is....

























    You.

    I duno what an Airco is lol

    My room has like a 14 feet ceiling or so...its pretty large...

    I have NO lights, and a SMALL 4.1 System in it..The monitor is the most heat obviously, but I turn that off everytime im not sitting in front of it. So the computer must be giving off a lot.

    I think if I turn it down to a 2500XP, lower Vcore to about 1.6 again that I can turn the 2 intake and 2 exhaust fans off, and still be fine. I never run it full load and right now at 3200XP it is only at 37....

    All the stuff about how big your room is and stuff kinda makes me wana make a thread where we all display pics of us, maybe some friends and our room, or stuff we do for a hobbie...hope vb dont move it tho...oh well

    Think of your room as a big computer case.

    What you need is airflow, but without fans, not always easy to achieve.

    BTW, airco = air conditioning.

    do you have windows open and such??? thatll kill your airco........

    btw, a good airco should easily cancell out the heat your comp produces, unless you're in a really warm country.......
