As here are temperatures from 29° to 35° Celsius I have to stop most of my clients. There is enough heat here in the office ...

If you have Intel, you could try to disable turbo boost.

We saw a dip in activity last summer when people went on holiday or the weather got too hot so I expect the same this year. I suppose it's a natural cycle of volunteer computing...

How about turn HT off or use only 50% CPU?
btw if you also run projects using AVX will significantly increase the temperature. For example, LLR on PrimeGrid

I never stop running.......I just add more fans and at night the cool air makes the room even better with the windows open.

I also am running lots of Einstein GPU's

Yeah, really a good idea, this leads us faster to:

We grill the employees in their own juice !

We can't let the windows open over night, no one is present ...
