Computers and the heat wave

Postby Kappes Buur » Mon Jun 28, 2021 4:58 pm

Now, while we are experiencing a heat wave it is important to keep an eye on the temperatures of various computer parts. Excessive heat inside a computer case is not a good thing - check the filters and fans for dust accumulation.

I just noticed my harddrives running at ca 50° C. Cleaning the clogged filters reduced the temperature to mid 30° C.

Right on.
Although my room is at the ground floor, I was still worried 'bout the heat build-up. I swept the dust and gunk out of the rig, and bought some extra coolant equipment. Might also need some coolant paste for the CPU.

I'm stupidly paranoid about my cpu being too hot, or even too warm. Emphasis on "stupidly". I usually 'Idle" around 40C. Idle being having chrome open with Facebook Messenger and watching a Youtube video. My brain freaks out with going over 60.
