how cold is too cold??

#1
i am working on a quite yet effective pc mod for teh summer and i was just talking with some friends and stuff about is it possable to be too cold, right now basicaly a beta for our cooling system the thermal plate for the cpu is -24C, something that cold, could it effect the performance in a negitive way on a barton core? amd will not say if it will do anything bad, they will not say what will happen below 0c. so is there a thing of being to cold for a cpu?

Well LN2 cooling is subzero so it shouldn't be a problem. The cooler the less resistance => easier O/C. As long as no mechanical components are cooled below specs it shouldn't be a problem.

Be careful about condensation though!

As mentioned the only real probs at low temp are moisture ones, as long as humidity isnt a problem

ok just one question on ths humidity thing with ice and all. if it is just H20 and no mileral content then it wouldent do any harm. so with condensatin forming does it get the mineral content from the dust in the air or will condnsation not conduct???

water = bad for electric components , but yes it is true the more impurities their are the lower the resistance. but i aint one for trying stupid **** when i know the obvious outcome... 1 dead processor or no roof on my house :(

It's bad enough. Sooner or later something will short, even if it doesn't do it right away.

The only results of a such a low temp is a great overclock and condensation. With temps that low im pretty sure youll need to take the same condensation preventing procedures as though you were using a peltier. Lots and lots of conformal coating, dialetric grease and neoprene foam.

Do you research before hand and save yourself the stress and cost of a blown mobo, cpu and possibly more due to condensation.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
