The Flip Side of Phenom's High Heat Output

So, after buying a Phenom 965 CPU, I wasn't very happy about how much heat the CPU put out.

But, earlier this week I accidentally broke my window while re-situating an window mounted AC. I would have to either get the window fixed or sleep on the couch tonight.

But . . . . my Phenom PC has really helped me keep my room cozy without even running the furnace. I disabled "Cool 'n' Quiet" and my room is staying at 72 degrees even though its 46 out!

Has anyone else found their AMD's heat output helpful in the cooler months?

do you oc it? if it's stock and heating your room, you got a crappy chip. or you just didn't do a good job with the hsf/compound.

I don't have any problems with high heat out put from a Phenom II 940, 965, or 1090T. Wouldn't surprise me if you've just got a horribly inefficient cheap generic PSU that wastes a ton of electricity outputting it in the form of heat.

Cause I could run all 3 computers and it wouldn't do what your describing.
