You could keep a more stable temp by controlling a pelt's voltage to keep the right temps. Then you don't have the possibility of your OC speed being altered with the seasons.

I live in michigan! We have such a range in temp here I dont know what i'm going to do when it gets warm. Acutally just now I opened all my windows to cool off my room and its not cooling! Its to warm outside (well i like it but my computer doesn't) The worst is those 80*F days where my computer room is 79*F so opening a window wouldn't help but i could cook my lunch ontop of my computer. Any ideas how to cool my computer better in the summer. We have ac but its like $2 a day to turn on so we only use it if its really hot. I have a hsf setup (no fancy watercooling or pelt stuff.) Any ideas on how to give my computer cool air would be much appreciated. Also, I was wondering if a mini-frige would be able to produce cool air fast enought to neutralize the heat that a 1.4 t-bird creates. Thanks in advance for helping.

I don't think a minifridge would cool it well enough. If you have to decrease your OC a lot and underclock it if it has stability problems. I did this when I was compressing my own music 12 horus a day in 90F+ weather on an Athlon 1333. Cooling it with a Volcano 2 hsf, so that didn't help. Had to underclock it to keep it stable.
