My System Specs

Default Hot time are in, What would HWC do?

I know this topic is on every and every years but here I go!
For all the winter, you and me proud member of the HWC family keep pushing limit with Oc'ing using the little trick of...THE OPEN WINDOW...But now, the hot season is coming and for some of us is already here. And it's to soon! What I want you to do guys it's to post your system spec with your current temp ( under the most common use ) And what you are going to do to keep your OC and keep the temp at good level. You can also comment other member set-up and give some advice to keep everything running like a beast!
I will start first here we go!

Intel I7 860 @ 3.98Ghz
This CPU is running between 75-80 when folding at 100%, 60-65 when gaming and 35 when doing nothing.
EVGA GTX260 Superclock 216
This video card run at 71-77 when under full folding or gaming load ( fan always at 42% )
EVGA GTS250
This video card run at 71-76 under full folding or gaming load ( fan always at 42% )

I am currently using a ATCS 840 with 3 240MM CM case fan, a scythe 1200 RPM for exhaust, a Gelid 1200 RMP in my Kama BAY, a Noctua NF-P12 for bottom intake.

My CPU is cooled with a Prolimatech Megahalem using a CM 120MM 1200RPM case fan for push and a Yate Loon 120MM for pull fan.

All the case fan are running at 100% but still quiet.
To help keep my temp good I am going to change ALL the fan in the case for better one and maybe the CPU cooler. I am looking at 1900RPM QUIET fan.

If you guys have any other advice

Please post your setup and add a picture if you want!!!

my pc is next to the heat source so i nsummer it should keep the same temps(or lower in some instances lol)

not using the open window for many years. not worth it. heat from pc warms up house, less need to burn fuel or electricity(separately)

I would go liquid if it would be more affordable. Don't forget that I am a 10$ per hour 20 hour a week student so WC is not in my budget for now. But all time I see the winderfull tube Eldonko is using I wish I could be paid 15/H to get me one XD

I keep my overclocks all year round . As far as I've seen, hotter temperatures don't make any difference to what settings are stable for my hardware.

well when you raise ambient temp you will raise everything's(chips,south bridges, you name it) temps. trick is to have good airflow.
