I have Climate Control in my car, but not in my house. My PC runs nice and cool though. Three hard drives stacked without spaces, and the hottest one hasn't gone above 38C. Sweet.

Don't forget when you're in the BIOS your CPU's under no load so will be cooler. It's not the best reflection of a PC running twenty VSTs!
