Hey, I'm currently setting up my new PC. I noticed that the power supply is freezing cold, we've got fairly cool weather here at the moment and after I unpacked everything from the delivery box, the PSU just felt dead cold.

Is there any risk of condensation in there? Should I wait a while before installing or using it? Anyone have any similar experiences?

Thanks in advance.

let it come to room temp, 2hrs indoors should do it.

Alright, I'll wait it out, thanks! Will probably take me more than 2 hours to assemble most things anyway. :p

You should not have any problems. I have the opposite problem - heat in southern Arizona's desert climate. The UPS delivery truck is a hot box in the Summer. I just let components get to indoor room temperature.
