Should I let PC cool down before switching off? Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: October 22, 2007 7:04 PM in Components Share Kkkk1 October 22, 2007 6:39:30 PM After a few hours of gaming my CPU and GPU are running around 60 degrees Celsius. Not too hot as I do have a decent case with plenty of cooling. However does ayone know if I should let my components cool down before switching my PC off? Thanks.

It's pretty much designed to take the heat, since even my old 6800 GS AGP had a threshold of 120C (thermal trip). So I'd say no, unless you need to keep your room a lil bit warmer.
