Default Whats the lowest temp you got with air cooling

I'm curious too see what kinda temps you guys get with air cooling. My lowest so far is 19C... I only saw it once or twice. I usually idle 21C.

I doubt these temperatures, as your computer will ALWAYS be above room temperature with air cooling

EDIT: 20 here, room temp was 16 though

Keeping a computer on the floor helps where there is a 6 to 10" layer of cool air, then the proper air flow will do the rest. too many fans and it gets noisy.

Cool Re: Whats the lowest temp you got with air cooling

HA! Rookies. This is the lowest I got on double wide>
16C reported from the cpu chip in the bios
Of course it helps the rig was sitting in the cold air blast from the a/c.
15C ambient in the room
33C ambient outdoors
