External case temperature should always be below 27*C (80*F), with the best temperatures around 18*C (65*F). Internal air temperature should be around 40*C (104*F), except for heatsinks, which require lower temperatures.

As long as you're using fans, don't be worried until case air temperature exceeds 55*C(130*F). At this point, both fans and passive coolers will be useless, and only liquid cooling will be able to safely protect your components.

Ambient temperature is a term which refers to the temperature in a room, or the temperature which surrounds an object under discussion. Though the ambient temperature hovered at 55F degrees, Floridians shivered in what they called "the cold". In the furnace room, the ambient temperature reached above 80F degrees.

Unless the ambient temperature in the room was very high it should be safe.

measures the ambient air temp (outside air temp) and sends that info to the computer to adjust air/fuel ratio for best burn.

ambient air temperature is the temperature of your surrounding air. if you stand outside with a thermometer, and it reads 64 degrees, that is ambient temperature.

Ambient refers to the temperature of the surrounding air, i.e not at parking lot level etc. Ambient means the temperature not being effected by mechanical means, like AC or any heat source. example, if you serve a wine at ambient temperature, it is not a specific number it is what ever the room is at the time.

This ambient temperature is comfortable for me. "ABM" is the abbreviation for ambient when used on blueprints.

The ambient temperature in this case refers to the temperature outside the engine. This is relevant for calculations related to heat engine. The ambient temperature will of course vary, but it is usually somewhere around 300 K.

You measure the ambient temperature before the experiment in case the experiment is sensitive to ambient temperature. You want to record all of the environmental factors that might affect the experiment before starting it. You measure the ambient temperature after the experiment for the same reason, and also in case the experiment affected the ambient temperature. Depending on the experiment, environmental factors may need to be considered when analyzing the results.

Simply put, ambient temperature is the temperature that surrounds a point of interest. It is the average temperature in the area of focus. For instance, if we were inside an industrial complex and we were examining the ambient temperature of a large room we would have to consider what is contributing to that temperature. Is the large room empty or is there machinery or people that are generating heat in that area? All the sources of heat and cool would average out in that area and that temperature would be the ambient temperature. Room temperature is comfortable to live in and is generally determined to be around 20 to 25 degrees Celsius (68 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit). The ambient temperature of a house (inside) that is at room temperature would be the same (20 degrees Celsius), but the ambient temperature outside on a winters day would be much cooler than room temperature, maybe even freezing. The temperature given on the news or at a location is the ambient temperature for that area.

The definition of ambient temperature is the temperature of the air in the surrounding environment. This term is often used in association with the air surrounding a power supply or cooling system.

Chlorine has no "normal" temperature, it will assume whatever the ambient temperature is.

Surrounding TemperatureThe word "ambient" is derived from the Latin word "ambientem" which means to go around.

Ambient temperature is the temperature of the air around you, inside or outside. "Room temperature" is a non-specific temperature, normally between 20 and 25ยฐC (68 to 77ยฐ F), generally used to indicate that an article should neither be refrigerated nor heated. Ambient temperature will mean the same thing when indoors.

Same as for everything else - called the ambient temperature.
