It hit 90 outside my Central Kalifornia home. Did a trial run using a generator to power my home office and swamp cooler. Kept my system at 27 C and CPU at 32. I think I am going to make it through both the summer heat and power outages.

You are going to need more than an 85 watt pelt. When my replacement KT7A-R arrives, I will go back to a 172 watt pelt or two and possibly one of Steve's cooling towers.
