I set up some arduino based temp probes. the air coming out of my PC is 101f (38.5c). The air coming out the top of my MONITOR is 115f (46.5c).
I have done some water cooling and some AC unit based phase change cooling in the past for raw CPU/GPU power through overclocking. Got 5ghz out of an E8600 with some but not all benchmarks passing. Would do 4.5ghz. That thing ate a lot of voltage, I did not check output from the case versus the monitor back then.
Currently on a different CPU though, for actual heat into the room, my monitor is beating my current 8 core i7 easily on temperature. Granted the volume of air moving with fans in the PC is far different than the convection based airflow out the top of my monitor, but omfg is this 2k 1440p screen hot. Those temp probes are physically touching the CPU heatsink and the monitor shell (in back above the stand mount). The monitor is physically much hotter than the CPU heatsink. Some food for thought if you are working on controlling the user environment versus increasing the machine's performance.
