could this idea fly?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
i was wondering if there would be a way to warm your feet and use the cold to help cool a pc?

i realise that it would not be used as a primary cooling.

it would could be an interesting idea though, would you agree?

I can tuck my toes under the front of my case and it is quite warm if it has been running a while...

I stick this over my computer and warm my feet up. Heck, sometimes I take warm baths with it.
