We got those in the office.. man they are so good..
I also played the stick to the AK Racing chair game until I bought myself a powerful A/C unit last year.
I'm in Holland so no 40c's here but still, summer can see long stretches of 30c+ days and my house is angled completely wrong so the sun burns down on my side of the roof from 9 AM to 3 PM so it heats up super fast in the morning. Plus, 120 year old house, terribad isolation on the roof.. literally styrofoam blocks glued to the roof with a drywall sheet over them. Really have to improve that as the wall literally feels warm in the summer lol. Ambients before AC in my gaming room would easily go over 40c with the PC running. Hell, i've seen 44c ambients just playing minecraft on a 36c sunny day.
But, I got myself a office size rolling A/C (like, 3360w / 10k BTU) with it's own 16A 240VAC group and power socket and it keeps my upstairs around 21-24c with 33-36c ambients outside. And that is with my PC running full blast at like, 500-700w of heat output from 2 seperate watercoolers. I do have to keep the A/C running ocnstantly on a thermostat because of the bad isolation of the upstairs floor. It keeps leaking in SO much heat I have to keep it running so my power bill is through the roof but yeah.. i don't care lol.
It's not like my garage equipment doesn't consume massive amounts of power lol. (Quickjacks, drill press, grinding wheels, belt sander, chopsaw, 3000w air compressor, several 240VAC/400VAC welders and so on).
