American English is odd, they call petrol gas, and gas propane, I think.
"English is odd" would cover it. Gas is gas and petrol, natural gas gets plumbed to your house. Propane is used in some areas but is always called propane.

Gas still safer than burning logs and charcoal in the fireplace ^^
It's only reserved for winter holidays and formal events.

Otherwise the steam radiators are one of the safest heating technologies there are, nothing is combusted inside your rooms so there's no need to open up the windows for 5 minutes to avoid co2 poisoning and freeze the room in the process. I also have electric oil radiators scavenged from a scrapyard but they're never used, thought of selling them but with electricity prices being high nobody wants them anymore lol one is 3.6kW and the other 2.5, RIP wallet :D
It's CO (carbonmonoxide) poisoning that we should worry about. CO2 is relatively harmless (except for on a large scale obviously, when it acts as a greenhouse gas).

Hot water is more recent AFAIK, with more recent being the 20th century, ours are steam, there's the classic rattling and hiss when the pressure is too high, like if you were boiling water in a kettle, and indeed it does burn when the pressure relief cap pops open ^^ but it's all about setting the valves right.

American English is odd, they call petrol gas, and gas propane, I think.


No expert either, I just do the maintenance at home and try to understand how things that were built before my grandparents were born work, and if I can fix them. Most professionals around want easy money and do the "no ma'am this is too old you see you'll have to replace the whole thing, and it'll cost you no less than $10k" when repairs are far cheaper but often require some more time to get done.

Electric is expensive everywhere, not worth when compared to other sources of heating, also not reliable as you say, if the power is out you freeze.
Gas (what in German, for example, would be called "Erdgas", or literally "earth gas") is usually called natural gas in American English (hence LNG or Liquefied Natural Gas, which is in the news a lot currently in the Western world as it is being shipped en masse from North America to Europe to replace the Russian supply). "Gas" (as in gas prices or gas station) typically refers to petrol indeed.

The one I have, has ignition by batteries and it works. I have tested it today. The only negative I can say about it, is that even though it should be smell free petroleum, I can still smell the petroleum fuel. But since it's only for emergency use, it's alright.

Gas is neither my thing. It's poison amd I don't like gas inside my house. Well petroleum is not healthy either, but I think it's less health damaging than gas and I will only use it for emergency heat like if power goes to the heat plant I get my primary heat sauce from. That can happen with example a power cut and that is not unlikely to happen as here in Europe we are going in to a winter with limited energy supplies but also the climate changes can cause the heat to go like a hurricane or earthquake. So it's good to have a second solution in these dam times with war, energy crisis and climate changes.

Site note. In the US the fuel for this heater might better be known as liquid parrafin.

This is the heater I got.
I hope you have enough petroleum (safely, of course) stored as well because if it really comes to operating that heater, I wouldn't count on there still being an affordable supply of petroleum either.

nice looking board. Whats on the right of the dimm slots? At first i thought my eyes were packing in .... looks like a low-profile graphics card slotted in a DIMM slot lol. On closer inspection still looks like a LP GPU but im guessing its for 5.0 SSD? talking about SSDs... bloody hell 4TBs worth of Firecuda 530... you must be going places.

plan to do a 4090 upgrade or just slotting in your 3090 ti? i'd recommend you upgrade your Display, if you have that kind of budget you need to be gaming in OLED mate. LG C2 42" 4k 120hz or 34" Alienware 3440x1440 OLED 175hz

other than that, kick ass rig you got mate, enjoy

The crosshair boards have a unusual breakout board by the DIMMs instead of putting M.2 on the actual board. Better for heat dissipation I guess?

Thanks, your correct it's for 5.0 SSD.

Asus calls it GEN-Z.2 Riser Card,.. the card features two M.2 slots, with one side offering support for the PCIe Gen 4 speed and the other seeing the boost for PCIe Gen 5 speed.

CO2 just without the 2 lol, close enough. I know there are detectors for poisoning and stuff but they're not a thing where I am, there's always deaths during winter yet it's not mandatory to install these detectors at home, everything gas is fine as long as there aren't any leaks, I installed our stove, and I know jack about gas lol did it following the manual that came with it.

Its a great little CPU. I love how quiet my system is. A better GPU would be nice, and my boy could use an upgrade from his GTX 980 Classified :D

I didn't plan on having a Zen 3 collection, but this is definitely a worthy addition :rockout:

I still wouldn't mind trying out a plain 5800X just to see if it's as hot as people say...
Easy answer there: with PBO on, yes. They throw more wattage than needed, simple as that. Cap it to lower settings like 120W or use an undervolt curve, and they're fine

No 5GHz e-peen
ST benchmarks it scores low
MT benchmarks it scores low
Memory benchmarks it scores low
Even AIDA64's cache benchmark takes a dim view of the 5800X3D :laugh:

But oh boy does it deliver. I hope the 5800X3D marks a turning point for my hardware preferences ("hopefully so" -my wallet). Who gives a fuck about Cinebench or AIDA scores - gimme the goods! That's what I'm here for.

I put my 5900X up on fbmp yesterday and was taken aback by the interest just today alone. It's got some strong Fabric, especially so for an early 2021 chip, I will miss it a bit.

But I also enjoy not pulling 500W from the wall when gaming, so I will only miss it a little bit. 2CCD gaming power efficiency is downright terrible.



Sitting pretty at an unbelievable 35W package power in some games.............it's like it's 2016 and I'm back in the blue camp. Unthinkable coming from a regular 90-120W gaming draw

But a 5800X wouldn't deliver a b u t t e r experience....:D
That's something i'll need to measure, my before and after power draw

Here, the requirement is conditional. They're only required if natural gas is used. My home is all electric, even the water heater. So we're only required to have standard smoke detectors..

Straya = hot
Straya needs smoke detectors

Canda needs Raw Flame detectors (Instant explosion just add match)

Oh and a cooling gel ass cushion - the sleeving is the white meshy stuff on the right of the image

So anyway, i bought cable sleeving to blend in the 3 meter DP cables I use in the bedroom to let me PC be allllll the way across the room
Oh and a cooling gel ass cushion - the sleeving is the white meshy stuff on the right of the image
The odd mouse and keeble placement is from using the 165Hz monitor for a bit while testing Gsync/freesync on both displays

You should try Linux. They say don't have to reinstall as often.

Why so many?

Originally they were listed for 34 PLN, roughly $7, that's with 23% VAT. Then I got 5 more for something around 30 PLN a piece. At the same time they were listed at amazon US for something around $20-25 and eu for €20+.

Now they are listed starting from 88 PLN, with some stores listing them at 118 PLN.

Gravastar Sirius o_O well ... that's a nice gift ... mostly made of zinc alloy for the case ... ~12hrs total play (that's 24hrs less than the Nothing ear(1) tho) good tuning (Gravastar is good at that it seems )
over the top packaging (look as if a DOOM ammo crate humped a box of Cyberpunk 2077 :laugh: )

USB C, in ear detection (IR not Capacitive like he ear(1) but works flawlessly )original design and odd accessories, c'mon, a metalic necklace? siriusly? errr i mean seriously?
and wow that opening mechanism (the spring is strong AF )
