Pentium 4 Easy Bake Oven   (+20, -1)  [vote for, against]
Do something useful with that wasted heat

Anyone with a Pentium 4 processor knows that those babies kick off some serious heat! Now you have a way to harness that wasted energy!

The P4 Easy Bake Oven consists of the following hardware:
**CPU Heatsink attachment
**Thermal pipe (as used in notebook coolers)
**5 1/4 Bay Oven with fan (for convection cooking/cooling), sealed internally to prevent spills inside the system
**Slide out tray

Stuck in the office, can't escape for lunch? Heat up a Hot Pocket right at your desk!

Service call interrupt your meal? Keep it warm while you work (tech support only)

Staying up late to IM friends on another continent? Heat you up a midnight snack.

Of course, includes the token brownie mix and tray, as well as a lightbulb that doubles as HDD activity light.

Overclocking can be dangerous. Cosnult these guys first. [NickTheGreat, Aug 21 2002]

Is that the smell of a rant cooking?
-- polartomato, Jul 12 2002

What could I be ranting about? All processors generate heat. I'm just using it for something.
-- Mr Burns, Jul 12 2002

Yeah, I know those things could melt butter, but really? They don't generate the heat needed to warm a cup of coffee, let alone cook some Kentucky Fried Turkey.
-- polartomato, Jul 12 2002

Most certainly they give off more heat than the 40 watt bulb included in the actual Easy Bake oven..
-- Mr Burns, Jul 12 2002

Well OK, I took off my fishbone... I suppose it's not that bad an idea... For the standalone version, you could probably achieve the same thing with some of the old Pentium < 100 mhz.

Have an easy-baked croissant. Overclock for better cooking

why don't you place a thermastate in your easy bake oven, I used to have on, and then look in bios when your computer starts up, my athlon 900 runs at about 100 or so

Half-Life, why not post an idea, 'Thermastate', involving a new national meritocracy of heat-conservators, the greenest (least red) citizens getting the most phoney baloney, etc...

[Sound idea, thcgenius. have a +1 attack croissant.]
