BEER!! :-o 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:

'Reply to egel:' 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: Cheers, Steve
