    You can get frost forming inside the socket, on the backplate, you can get it forming around the cpu socket and dripping onto the GPU.

    pardon me you just say minus temps?? JEEZ! condensation, ice and snow?! that's cool as fuck, literally! just a question I thought components etc shouldn't run at minus temps due to electronic thing (I read somewhere), they need a certain level of heat to perform at its optimum! btw nice build

    It's only when you get really low down(-100~-200) that you get the components "Freezing" (Awful pun). The overclocking lingo for this is the "Cold Bug" .Although When you're booting the PC, it cannot be too cold, otherwise it will not POST.

    yeah, ive tried the other slot, use the latest bios and reinstall os
    but so far got no luck, then i tried my old 8600gt. it run nicely :shadedshu
    so i assume the slot is ok. but its kinda weird for me

    Pro's

    Stupid overclocks
    E-Peen
    Chips last longer as the cold reduces electron migration

    Con's
    Power comsumption
    Price
    Noise ( Depends on the person though )

    Not really

    Waste of money

    If you get that then you're doing somthing wrong

    Transisters perform much better in cold conditions

    Cold bugs are pretty much a thing of the past, AMD chips don't cold bug and Intel are getting much much better in that regard too.

    Some more phase cooling love form me :nutkick:

    This is why you must insulate your motherboard, pure ice build up ( It's completely harmless due to using liquid tape )

    The Mini has no rust any where, full resto + wax oil all over to maximise protection.
