Ambient room temp.?

I just built my own gaming rig and have a Q6600 not overclocked with stock cooler. My question is this, I have this PC in my bedroom with NO air conditioning and it's about 90 degrees out. I have all my windows open with plenty of air circulation in the room and am using a Cooler Master HAF 932 case. It's feels hot as hell to me but is this NOT a good thing for the PC or can my components not be affected by this heat wave? Should I shut it down till night time when it gets cooler?

  1. Download HWMonitor from and keep an eye on your temps. As long as CPU doesnt go over 60C, you should be OK.
  2. Ok thanx and I was wondering, is ( Real Temp ) a good CPU Temp. Monitor?
  3. Yea, Real Temp will work as well. I like HW Monitor because it shows all temps (CPU, GPU, MB, HD, Ambient) in one place.
  4. Ok great cause I am already using EVGA Percision Utility for my GPU. Thank you ;)
  5. Most motherboards have a temperature monitor that you set with the BIOS. I have them set at 70 C. on my computers.
