I used to have that problem in my office, too...also used to get in trouble with the wife because the thermostat is in the hall right outside the office, and the rest of the house would be freezing because heat from the office kept the AC running.
So she agreed to this:
bought refurbished from Newegg. Now the office stays at 78 even when 100 plus outside (which in Houston is most of the summer), and the rest of the house does not get frozen. The power it uses is just about made up for in the house AC running less....I think, have not heard complaints about the power bill since I got it, anyways
The only time I break 80 in the office now is during foldathons when I have both GTX 480s, the i7-960, the PII X6 and the PII X4 all folding in here. Think it got up to 82 yesterday.
I was going to go with a window unit (better $/BTU), but, turns out our neighborhood association has rules against window ACs being visible from the street, and my office is on the front of the house.
