Default Snow !

After a couple of ice cold days, it was raining all afternoon here in Belgium/Antwerp.

But in the evening the first snow of the year fell...

Results of the snow:
-More thna 50% of the tv channels didn't work
-Mobile phone didn't have a good connection
-Internet didn't work anymore

I don't want to know what it's going to be next month (some people expect this is going to be the coldest winter in 50years, wich is good, nice temps to do some overclocking outside :grin: ).

And that's only the beginning .
Nice VGA heatsink :grin: . How much more did you get out of the system with those temps???


In the christmas vacations I'll be going outside, in our hangar (or what it might be, it's open but has a roof, only thing I'll be needing).
I'm hoping for some -15c temps.
Only question is, will my monitor, psu and hdd survive ??? (monitor and psu because of the caps wich can't stand cold and the hdd because of sensitive components).
Biggest problem is going to get it back inside, without getting condesation (again, hdd is toughest part)

-15 degrees enviroment will be hard to get. Suppose you'll hit it, then the mainboard and companents will heat eachother up. Same for the harddisk. Instead of running hot it'll be running warm.

Monitor I don't know.

Well, my system won't be in a case and there probably will be some wind outside. Also, I've heard a lot of people say that this winter will be the coldest in 50years, so I don't know what to except (I'm happy with -20c )

jort, keeping your heatpipes 'up' like that is the worst position for a heatsink like that!
