Nice. Cold days are good for lots of horsepower on a street too. They say every 10 degree drop in temp gives a 1% horsepower gain on normaly aspirated cars, and about 2% on forced induction cars.

I was just thinking about it myself. I'm looking forward to Christmas. Too me that means, swiming, the beach, BBQs staying out on a hot summers night. I can't begin to imagine what it would be to think of Christmas over there. ::

On topic. My CPU now idles at 35 compared to low 20c a few months ago. ::

Overclocking season has come to an end. Put away your overs and your clocks

Maybe I can put my PC in the fridge?
