Default Save money on bills with Prime95

Of course you should always keep your computer far away from your heater, but you will save money on your heating bill by keeping your computer on the same side of the room as your heating system (BUT FAR AWAY ENOUGH SO YOUR COMPUTER IS SHEILDED FROM YOUR HEATER). Doing this will promote convection (which is how your heater works), while putting your computer on the completely opposite side of the room will instead hinder convection, forcing your heater to have to output more energy for any given temperature.

Some have enough GHz in a room that they don't need a heater.

That's why you put the farm in the basment. Or build an addition to your house specifically for your farm with massive liquid-nitrogen cooling units.
