Default How Low can you Go?



so, now that i finally got around to doing this...lol

how low can u get ur core temp/mobo temp? lol

with my original viper case, and stock hsf, this is what i got.






now, with the rig in my sig, this is my current idle temps



so, anyone dare challenge my temps!? lol

(65*F ambient, for both screens)
(get the same temp at 3.5ghz, of course, as no Vcore was changed from stock)

That's nuts. I'm pretty sure my CPU stays around 40 and the case fans only come on if it gets to like 45 (AKA never) which means my computer stays nice and quiet. Yea for ASUS Cool'n'Quiet!!!

If I put all my CPU settings to default, I can run my computer at 23C (room temperature). In another words, I'm being bottlenecked by the "weather".

Since my room is in the basement where it is cooler my computer stays quite cool. right now my cpu temp is 31 C. In the summer the temp stays around 35-36 C. Last winter the temp actually hit something like 22C when the central heat broke. My computer accumulates dust inside pretty quickly so the temp might be able to be lower if I blast out my case with compressed air.

I don't know if my case has a place for a dust filter. This winter I might try an experiment with a computer that is hooked up in the back shed where i rig a giant system of pipes somehow like a chimney to suck the freezing cold air into the computer directly from outside and see how low the temp goes then lol
