I will never build a PC in the winter again, i swear, i’m only going to build them in the summer.
After i installed the H80i v2 and Akasa Piranha fans on the Ryzen Machine, it all seemed fine and the CPU would sit happily under 40ºc when on idle, but last week i had a surprise due to a pseudo-summer day (from 12ºc to 33ºc), and then felt the warm wind coming from the radiador on the computer.
I wasn’t able to put it unders its paces to see how high a temperature it would hit, but i captured the temperature readings while on idle:
That is way too hot i think, and it felt warm too, the bottom of the case and the radiador were very hot to the touch.
That makes me worry about the actual summer, which is coming around in about two months and reaches temperatures up to 42ºc.
What does one do in a situation like that? Change the CPU? Undervolt? Underclock? Change the chassis and invest in more cooling?
