Default Can a computer ever be too cold?

No, water cooling and fans can never make a computer too cold.

No, I don't think so, but I guess there is an extreme where the chips would freeze, but you can use liquid oxygen cooling on a CPU for example

Well put it this way, adding 10 fans wouldn't do much anyway. Its all about air flow when you see when your talking about a computer case, and 10 fans positioned in back, front, and side, they'd force each other out and so less air would escape the case, and so, it'd actually end up hotter than with just a few. So you have to be careful with positioning

Default Re: Can a computer ever be too cold?

I've seen mods where they get CPU chips to OC to 5 GHz and hit -190 degrees. So I would think it would be very difficult to make a CPU so COLD that it would not work. Even with the proper funding.

If you make it too cold, it would condense water drops, and ruin your machine...
