Does it make ANY sense to harness the heat energy that your PC disperses to replace a purpose-built space heater?

A real space heater is a PowerMac G5 quad core or a Pentium 4 Hyper Threaded.

I would like to rerun that experiment using a air conditioner design (using compressor and pentane) most likely putting the computer in a second room to be exttreme cold so it could theoreticly boost the components and heat my office in winter. ;-)

I build a heater-PC 10 years ago, it doesn't need a Fan. It uses an heat exchanger from a gas-boiler on top.

What's the point of the radiator? Wouldn't air cooling work just as well for this test? The energy/heat is still going to be dissipated into the room.

All the radiator would be doing is giving it a middle-man.

Actually Linus the whole matter/energy cant be created or destroyed has been proven false. The ONLY thing true is that when you transform matter into energy it gives off the equivalent amount of energy that energy will be consumed and forever lost at a certain point which is why they call it the big rip.

What was the point of the liquid loop? You could have just stuck a regular air cooled version of that pc in a closet and it would put out the same heat. You simply changed the medium. 300 watts is 300 watts

I was more interested how the gpu/cpu preformed for temps over a span of time in a regular gaming session.

In winter my PC indeed was heating my room, but nowadays I have more efficient hardware so it only produces around 350-400W while gaming instead of 500+. But well my 46inch Plasma TV produces around 200-250W alone, so i won`t freeze to death anytime soon.
