Help me please before my cpu temp reaches -0

I have a big issue with my pc situation.
I have a i9 9900k and a nvidea geforce rtx 2080.
Im not rich, So you can inmagine its very precous to me.
Now the problem is that i use my pc outside the house(not allowed to smoke inside).
And its starting to get colder since last night between 3 and -3 in the day. 
Would this break my pc due to condens or temp shifts ?
To clearify i dont turn on my ice cold pc inside.
Its only been turned on outside for the past few months.
Cpu temp was 8°under full load last night. (aircooled).

 

Should i stop taking it outside starting today.

Condensation only happens if you bring the cold PC into the warm air inside. Staying in the cold is not a problem. 

But staying in 0°C and using a PC at a desk, really? I could never stand that.

You could always adjust fan-speeds as well. There's literally zero reason for the fan to even be running in the first place, if the CPU is below 30 degrees, so you could just hop into BIOS and adjust the curves accordingly.

So basicly if i take it inside for the night and leave it off it would also be a issue?

Yes. Just leave it out.

condensation occurs when the parts are sub-ambient, meaning if their temps are lower than ambient temps

if your ambient is -3c and your pc is -3c, no condensation will occur

but if your pc is -3c and you bring it into your warm house, condensation may be an issue

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

It rlly is a fwp and i should quit smoking but cant(weak willed).

I am basicly evicted to the garden playhouse sadly, so your guess was right on the mark.

But i carry the pc no trolley needed.

Can this cause issues even if it has 12h a day to warm up and dry out?

as long as it's warmed up to around the same temp as indoors, it's fine

 

humidity is also a factor, but just try to play safe

If it has doors that close you could potentially insulate it for not a whole lot of money then get a space heater and have a cool place to game.
