        I was trying to make a point. Most people dont realize but the tmeps get very cold this time of year and some LCDs cant take temps below freezing.

            Nobody, that I have heard, has ever actually had problems with the cold destroying any of their carputer equipment.

                Hehe, well, if it breaks just think of it as time to upgrade anyways.

                  Just thinking about the cold is bad. But being crazy enough to force everything to startup is even worse. But I do it anyways. The only real effect I see is on the display and do wounder what it will do to it over time.

                  Yea, could've said that better myself. How tru.

                      Its -30 here on some nights, LCD works fine. Then again its a 15" BenQ.

                      HDD problems are something though, sometimes its too cold to detect it, so I let it sit at the post screen for a few mins, then restart and its fine.

                        While we're nitpicking others' writing...
                        It's "$4,000,000" or "4,000,000 bucks," not both.

                            Here in central Ohio the wind chill today was -11° F. Processor runs about 75° and it is 66° in the case. This summer after sitting in the sun all day, system would normally run in the high 120's to low 130's. Hottest it got was 154°F. As soon as I started the car and the fans came on, it dropped very quick. This is the second full winter for my setup. Had no problems what so ever with heat / cold related issues.

                              I have had a little bit of problems lately with my hard drive not spinning up right. It is a 3.5' drive. It now is much louder when it spins up.
