    How much of a risk would i be taking setting up my racing rig in my attic.

    Its a triple 27" monitor setup and it takes up way too much room in the kitchen so the attic would be an ideal solution.

    Im worried though about the temperature drop in winter and how it would affect the electronics of the fanatec csw, gaming pc, and monitors, it can get ultra cold in there.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    start with putting roofisolation in your attic first
    you gain that back by paying less at your heatingbill

    its not really an attic........its an empty space at the same level as my flat (which is the top one in our block)

    I access it via a small door in the back of the bedroom wardrobe....its a bit of an odd space really,

    As long as there isn't any moisture it shouldn't be a problem!! I have mine in an outhouse and it gets very cold during the winter and I've not had any issues with my gear. It's ideal for an extreme overclock lol:laugh:. The problem I have is encouraging myself to go out there when it's cold!!
