it's not going to be cheap as the last one started at about £1000.

I know it's not using the computer housing as cooling but I've seen lots of people mention the above cooler around the forums as a really cheap at £10 / $14 fanless cooler but you need a CPU at 40watts or below if your going to have it on full load for hours.

Isn't it fun? Ideas - also stupid ideas like mine - and look - this Rambo thing is actually in development ...

@ Lukap: Thank you for the information - but the original cooler things from IBM are huge - certainly larger than that on the sent image.
Could it be - that all these cooling stories are simply marketing? Many fans - means a lot of power. A lot of noise about nothing...

No problem with noise here. I have so many fans that my machine levitates when I turn it on. I'm also deaf.

Impossible? 2025 - that means in 7 years - we are on Mars, as experts assure me in various forums. A combined computer housing with stove plate should not be a big challenge for gifted technicians.
The microwave oven was created after British radar technicians noticed that their radar units kept their tea hot.

You can create heat... but something has to be used in order to do that. Battery power, mainline electrical power, a chemical reaction or some sort of fuel does the trick now but as it is there is not yet a free ride. If a computer can create enough heat to run a hot plate the initial investment comes from what ever powers the computer. Any technological advances will probably come from finding better power sources, perhaps nuclear or something along those lines.

With no load my computer fans slow down to a crawl. I have to take it's pulse to see if it is still running...

Hot breeze in a different sense. Astonished about modern technology we stumble over speech input:
Google go - Alexa - Siri and ... Cortana

Well ... at Cortana my first association was Incontinentia... ...and is now firmly stored in one of my cortices, probably in the cerebellar.

Siri sounds strange where I live: "Ssssirrrri irri - suech ..." I'll spare you an audio sample, it's embarrassing.

But here's a nice word, isn't it?

Autologon

You whisper "Autologon, Autologon where are you? Autologon, Autologon who are you? "
The most intelligent language management answers all your terminal command requests. The sudo password command will be exciting ... quietly whisper it, very close to the microphone? Or Autologon has already activated?

Anyway - Autologon... Has something classic. Logo, Logos, Plato's allegory of the Cave

Heat from electronics is not such a detriment in winter, as it is in summer,
based on where you live.

My geographical latitude is pretty well suited for additional heating. But the constant noise, the stupid fans... :mrgreen:

I get pulled over regularly by the police for the super-loud rock 'n roll blaring out of my eight speaker system in my sports coupe. They complain about the noise so I tell them I'm deaf and need it turned up loud so I can feel it. There's nothing they can do :)

Car housing? Speaker housing?

There are people who don't carry a spare wheel but a 20 inch woofer.
