...you cannot remember the last time you slept without having some fans hissing in the distance.

For stronger addictions:

If you save up more for extra computers than for food.

"extra computers" is an oxymoron. There's such a thing as spare parts, cold spares, or computers uneconomic to operate except in the heating season, but "extra"? What's that? I can only wear one pair of shoes, but many systems can be run in parallel, subject to limits on power delivery and heat rejection and total budget.

One might be addicted if contemplating an HVAC upgrade to raise the heat rejection limit...

You are using a Stirling cycle in your GPU's cooling system loop.
