Does anyone have this happen? My room is a couple degrees warmer than the rest of the house because of my computer being in it.

In Summer when its like 45c outside (gogo Australia), hell yes. Unnoticeable most of the time though. But then again I'm running an AMD Sempron 2600 1.6ghz with 1.5gb of ddr and one hdd.

Yeh, Leave my computer running and close the door and windows, and I can come back to a reasonably warm room, quite handy when it's below 0C at times outside.

Yep. The room where I use my desktop is warmer than the rest on its own, but combined with the computer it gets a bit too warm at times. Unfortunately it doesn't get cold very often where I live, so the air conditioning is always on. Could use a bigger vent... or a separate unit. Take 'cooling' a step further.

The dell does nothing (usually cool)

The acer keeps the desk warm for a start :P

Same here!
But it's not the PC, its the monitor! It's a 24" Flatscreen CRT and it heats the place up like hell.

My room has to be the hottest in my house, the P4 Desktop and the PIII Open laptop pump out so much heat that the temp difference outside my room is 5-7C different (In summer, even a 1C difference is a killer).

And now that I'm using an old CRT as an extended, probably more so (Even the LCD pumps out some high heat when I wave my hand over the top of it).

I don't really notice it in the winter, as it stays relatively cool anyways (25C/77F Idle). However in the summertime, I notice it if I leave the computer on for a few hours (35C/95F Idle, 50C/122F Load). Its really annoying, because I need the heat in the winter (its currently 58F in my room and 47F outside). Although its not too bad because it rarely gets below 0C/32F.

I generally only use a laptop (desktop replacement, electricity is becoming too expensive to run a desktop), so it makes no difference to my room.

My server, however, does make our converted loft warmer than the rest of the house without the heating on. Only a few degrees but you do notice it. In summer I have to leave the roof light open a notch otherwise the room gets so warm the server could struggle to keep the CPU cool.

Actually I have turned off my heating the whole year because my first PC heats enough and if a friend of mine is tehre the second one does heat as well.
I also have opened my windows all the times.
Especially in the morning if the air is clean and cold and refreshing :wink:

It's more humid than anything. Come on summer, waiting for these 50c days the news keep mentioning (if you've ever been in the outback in summer, 40ish is nothing.)

Toshua: why *two* P4 servers in your room? :|

As a side note its even worse in rooms of 20-30 pc's like my school ICT rooms especially the one which has Pentium D's in it. It's awesome in winter but in summer its almost unbearable.

I remember one of the blackouts we had during the 15 day heatwave back in march. The room was full of shitty pentium 4's. No lighting, no A/C but the pieces of [censored] had power. Teacher was like OMFG DO WORK.

My P4 raises the temperature in the living room by a couple of degrees, though its not as noticeable in the winter. The C3 also puts out *some* heat in my room, not much to make any difference..

It's always much warmer around my computer, so yes, I guess. I have to use heaters, anyway, but in summer, when in other rooms temperature is bearable, around my desk it's unbearable (about 5 degrees more).
