Pc gaming in Arizona with the AC broken is the bane of my existence

I had to set my CPU back to stock because it was overheating. Even at stock my CPU hits at around 80 C under load.

Ouch man, if my AC went out here in Georgia I'd sell a kidney, not necessarily my own mind you, to get it up and running ASAP.

Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

Here's what you do:

Grab a spray bottle and give your components a light misting. Works great on my cat when she gets too hot.

So it goes.

Sadly I have to convince my landlord to stop being a greedy SOB and hire some guys to fix the bloody thing. So I'll be stuck here with both me and my computer in scorching heat.

This is why I live in Massachusetts.
Although my Second Core's Tsensor is still Broken and displays temps in half degrees.

I know what you mean, I don't live in volcano Arizona, but here in New York it gets pretty hot in the summer.. well, not as hot you as the mid-west, but at least you guys don't have horrible humidity. On top of that, I'm on the third floor and even with my window open, air doesn't really come inside. My room is always 10 degrees higher than the outside temperature. HOWEVER, I do have AC so I don't play PC games in the summer without the AC on; but usually it's always on on the hottest days anyways.
