BEER!! Now we're talking English (not tech jargon). I'm an Aussie, chilled beer's the one and I clearly understand the point about sub-zero and computers now. But not a problem understanding those tips in terms of beer, we Aussies chill and care for our beer with utmost pride and care. :acorn: Like one of the Acorn !Sibelius7 "Tips of the Day", it says 'don't water your computer'. So I don't think I'll chill my computer (like beer) on ICE!! :cooldude:

Obviously as you suggest, the cooler the better - with ideal being maybe 10 - 15C ?
In the summer months here in New Zealand, a computer room that has virtually no cooling apart from a couple of ceiling fans and not to forget the massive body heat created here, your ideally suggested temperature is sadly about half what we experience at times!! I can see our ICT computer teacher submitting a :bowdown: BIG ask for airconditioning after the huge millions spent on our school the past four years. But then again I would image the airconditioning may not outweigh the costs over years of repairs to overheated computers (and overheated children and teachers!). Some of the points in the article were interesting about allowing (if possible) airflow around the components in the computer. Now would this argue a point against the thought of buying a compact slimline computer case?? :rolleyes:
