CPU used to cook with?

I was thinking along the lines of a Wok, when you feel like cooking something and you don’t have anything to cook with, pull out a mini wok? Simply switch the desktop computer off, open it up and locate the CPU, remove the heatsink and fan, and place on your Wok, which is the heatsink… I’m thinking the more powerful CPU’s may not need water cooling, just slap a hot plate on one :smiley:

You’re like… a machine, dude.

Why not, they're already as efficient as space heaters: http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Gaming-PC-vs-Space-Heater-Efficiency-511/

The new AMD 8-core CPUs are like 210W! Get a server motherboard with 4 sockets, and there you go. VM host + 840W electric heater. Have it mine bitcoins and then you have a heater that pays you to run it!
