Re: How do you actually run games on high-spec monitors?

Re: Air conditioning: Dual-zone mini split vs two portable units

It managed to bring the inside temperature from 28 °C (82½ °F) down to 20 °C (68 °F) in around 40 minutes. Outside, it was a blistering 33 °C (91½ °F)! I find anything cooler than 75-76 °F (24 °C) inside to be too cold when it's a sweltering 98 °F (37 °C) with a 79 °F (26 °C) dew point outside. Not...
