    17,000kwh per year?? Nutty parents!

    Just looked at my estimated usage for the year and it's 7,700kw. That's all electric, in a partly insulated, extended 1930's semi detached with 2 adult's.

    New parts advice

    What are your temperatures when playing? I would be inclined to check the whole system as you didn't put it together. It may have dust, a bad connection, motherboard bios option not correct, driver issues or thermal paste that isn't doing it's job. Have a look at things like that and a clean...

    New build won't boot windows or Ubuntu

    You won't get a signal from the motherboard hdmi as the cpu doesn't have graphics. Have you checked the cpu for bent pins or thermal paste on the pins? I know that some gpu's need a firmware update or a setting in the bios to get the card to show anything, just can't remember what is was.

    Electrically powered central heating?

    I did not say it cost the same to install, but at the minute with the rebate it is cheaper to run. I get £100 a month back so my running cost last month was £158 instead of £258.

    Electrically powered central heating?

    It is working out OK. If people decide to install it you just have to be aware of the limitations of the system. At the minute we leave it on 19°c all the time as we are at home most of the time, the house does stay at that temperature during the day with some boosting depending on the...

    I have 2 node 202's, 1 is in a unit under the TV. It uses the AMD cooler so does rev up and down slightly but isn't to loud. The other is used as a games machine with a 3800x, aftermarket cooler and Gtx 1080, so is a little bit louder. Both are Gigabyte boards(450 and 570). Temperature wise...

    Installing new SSD/windows

    I think most people will advise clean install. Download the windows of your choice, make a USB bootable drive. Disconnect the hdd and connect the ssd, install, then reconnect the hdd and transfer any files off the hdd you need.

    Hard Drive for TV?

    I just have an m2 drive in a USB enclosure, think it is a sata drive. Just use anything you have spare if you are only going to use it occasionally.
