Time to crank the OC up .See how low it can go.Temp wise on your current OC. I can get the temps in my sig if I maintain that ambient temp. But thats cold enough for me! THE FANMAN

Tonight its going around -20 to -30 with wind chill...its crazy. I was thinking of spraying my school with water and then they would have to cancel...

I was thinking of putting my new rig (under construction) inside my "cubey hole" in my room because its so much colder in there (at least 20 degrees)...then i could just run the keyboard mouse and monitor right outside the little door, although it would be a PITA. It would be cold though.
