This may be a strange request but I want my PC to get really hot to spit out hot air....

Reason? At my job I currently have a spare PC which currently I don't use for anything and the guy in front of my workplace leaves a door open and FREEZING air comes in and my feet are frozen. I almost cant feel my feet....Ive told him once, twice, etc times to close the door but nothing so....Currently (right now) this is my alternative: make the PC spit out hot air so it can warm somewhat my feet! :)

So how do we get this PC hot?

I thought this was the best way. What programs are recommended?

Can't you just bring an electric heater in to work? That might be safer and more effective.

I would speak to him about it. I'd also consider speaking to your doctor - my better looking half has similar sounding symptoms to yourself and suffers with Raynaud's Syndrome. She feels the cold even in a slight draught.

On topic please :)

A recommendation to close the door yourself and bring an electric heater, is still on topic.

Shouldn't this be in jokes and funny stuff, because obviously the op is trying really hard to be funny.

Description:
A program that simplifies the usage of Intel® Linpack. Linpack by
Intel® is an extremely stressful program that will put even the most pow-
-erful X86/X64 CPU in the world at its knees. Load temp under Linpack will
be up to 22*C higher than the competing software Prime95. This program will
make usage of Linpack easier and more practical.

Keep in mind, use this program at your own risk. By using this program, you
agree that neither I nor Intel shall be responsible for including, but not
limited to: burned up CPU, fried motherboard, spontaneous room temperature
increase, hair loss, or mental stress.

No, it isn't.

This sounds pretty stressful. I don't want to make the PC explode either :p

Computers are not heaters. If you're going to put a machine in a position where it's getting hot enough to keep you warm, it's probably both dangerous and inefficient compared to getting a heater. And if you don't want to risk breaking the computer then you definitely need to stop thinking about this idea.

I know they are not heaters but we have always once in our life used something for not its intended purpose :)

Im running it now and its pretty warm and it helps somewhat....
