Default temp

Is it normal for the temps of your computer including your CPU go up during the summer? Like around 50C?

Well, somewhat yes. The temperature inside your house goes up and down depending in the seasons doesn't it?

Yes, but not to say that it is safe. Obviously you will be running hotter temperatures and it is always recommended that your computer run at the lowest temperatures possible. The best move is to keep the computer in a room where the sun isn't shining in on it, and preferably in a cooler area of the house.

Default Re: temp

Get a piece of wood or heavy cardboard and set the rig on the floor. It's several degrees cooler at floor level.
