i bought a new cpu cooler.. the "synthe mugen 2"
and its cooling my cpu q6700 down to 24-30 degrees. ( my roomtemp. is about 20 degrees)
now my question...
if its winter and there's a temp of -10°C and i would open my windows to get my room cold.. - 10°c
now i got a difference from 4 to 10 degrees... so is it possible to cool a cpu with air cooling under 0°C?
and would it harm the cpu?

No. But -10C might harm you! And you certainly wouldn't want condensation inside the computer, which could conceivably (unlikely, I know) happen if someone were to open the door to the room and let a rush of warm air in.
I dont know what about C2D, I used to have pentium D 920(2.8ghz) and during winter, I also wanted to cool it below 0c so I underclocked it to 1.4GHz, set vcore 0,83V and set cpu fan to max. You know what? When it hit 0c it was completely ok. However when the time has come to drop to -1, system hang! You might want to do this, simply to see temperature 0, or -something, but you get nothing from this.
whats with the link? is there any information about my cpu? about the voltage?
i dont have a good power supply .. could it harm to do this? to overclock and set the voltage higher? with a bad powersupply?
.. am am not ready.. i have already overclocked.. and its working quiet well..
its now on fsb 300 so 3ghz x 4
and the temperatures are between 38 to 45 .. in idle..
can i overclock more? were is the end?
i got the handy manual. i build the pc on my own ^^
is in the manual a suggestion with a compatible voltage for the fsb 333? and so on?
thanks now i'm going to play crysis.. watching my temps^^ and looking at the fps
