My Mom Works at hp, and she used to work at some kind of server room and told me that its really cold like turned down to 62 or 52 degrees for it to work and catch up the speed and its a pretty big server machine too. My built desktop computer is the Winsis Wn 41. So do you think my computer needs to have a colder temperature for it to run smoothly or i need to, because during Spring and summer my study room gets kinda hot a bit and im kinda worried. Thanks!!

You should be fine unless you have a weak PSU like under 500W with a 1GB GPU for example. Seems llike you should be fine though.

You don't have to worry to much about the temperature of you pc. As long as it stays below 75 degrees Celsius you should be fine. My laptop often goes to about 80 degrees Celsius and than I turn it off and let it cool down because I am burning my legs off!

Big powerful servers are just that. Big powerful servers, they generate a lot of heat and need cooling. Standard desktops just use fan cooling systems because thats all they need. Unless you had ridiculously high computer stats I wouldn't worry, just make sure that the vents on it aren't covered or isolated in a certain area and you'll be fine.

Unless you have 3 graphics cards and you overvolt your system and overclock it to the extreme, I wouldn't worry about it
