In this paper we discuss the thermal output of the supercomputer ALICE at the University of Leicester. From this value, we determine the rate of temperature increase that the Physics building at the University of Leicester would experience if heated entirely by this. We found that the rate of temperature increase was 5.33 K hr^−1 . This value would vary in reality due to variables such as the lack of knowledge of all ALICE’s components and the radiation of heat from the building.
