Nah, I'm from the midwest. The computer is in the basement though. I've got the cooler in my storm scout, have it set up with case fan in front, cooler pulls in through front fan, out through back. Have another case fan directly above the cpu pulling out, for a blowhole effect. Plus a case fan to pull air out the back of my case. So it is cool as a cucumber.
This system is actually 5 years old, upgraded piece by piece over time. The board is an old AM2 sli board by gigabyte, bios flash lets it run the newer quad, so 4 gb of ddr2 800 and my gts 450, runs great for it's age. I think the chip could take more speed actually, but my board seems to kind of try to regulate voltage even when I manually set it. Like if I set my voltage to 1.3, hw monitor reports voltage at 1.37. I know voltage fluctuates under heavy load, so not gonna push my luck.
