Our air went out. It's 80 degrees in our apartment, FFXIV beta starts tomorrow..

Obviously metric is better when we're talking in scientific terms, but I think fahrenheit is superior when it comes to talking about human temperature tolerance.

If you think about it, zero is on the low end on what the human body can tolerate and 100 is on the high end. Obviously people can get used to further extremes, but the majority of the population would suffer at either extreme without special equipment like air conditioners, heaters, or clothing.

thats just because its what you are used to.

theres no reason why 100 has to be, hey its very hot out instead of 40 being hey its very hot out

but it was a reasonably decent argument

If you can explain how 40F is comparable to 100F I'll accept your argument.

Man...80F being hot...

I've run my computer on MANY days when the A/C went out and with heavy gaming it pushed my room's temperature up over 95F, easy. And it stayed that way through more than half the night, starting over again the next morning.

If you're worried, take the side off of your case and set up a fan to blow into it.

I use a hyper 212+, you'll be fine. I've run my CPU up to 95F ambient and I still get acceptable temps (55-57C).

I'd be more concerned about the GPU. Keep an eye on it, set a custom fan profile. 80F is generally nothing to worry about though. I know I've been worried about my 580, since it goes over 80C when it gets hot enough. Havent seen it above 85 tho.....

I've seen my 580 get to 100c easy if I don't crank my fans up to max.

^^Yeah, I could probably get that too if I didn't use a custom profile.

Nope stop using all electronics in your house immediately or they'll blow up

Really? its that hot?
Outside is only 73 degrees currently..


Technically it's only 35 degrees outside... but that's using the superior measurement system.


Fahrenheit made more sense before people went and messed with it. 0 was the freezing point of sea water and 100 was the human body temperature. And then someone noticed that, if they moved the scale ever so slightly, water's freezing and boiling points would be 180 degrees apart. So they did. It's actually 1.8 times as accurate as celsius, when using significant figures.

By the by, significant figures are evil. 2.9 x 5 is 20.


You almost came across like you knew what you were talking about... until you demonstrated a complete lack of understanding of significant figures. If you're going to adhere to significance properly then 2.9 5 = 110^1. (The scientific notation is necessary in order to remove any ambiguity over whether or not the ones digit is significant in the result. It is not.)

Of course, in a real world scenario your example is absurd, since when taking measurements it is assumed that a final figure corresponding to one tenth of the scale of the measuring instrument is estimated. (i.e., you could read a thermometer as 25.5C even if it were only marked in single degrees.) Thus the number "5", with no trailing digits to specify significance, represents a complete guess or a wildly inaccurate instrument, and therefore all multiplication using it should be thrown out anyway. "2.9 5", if adhering to proper significant digits, can be read as "two point something multiplied by something between one and nine".

The fact that you think they're "evil" just demonstrates a lack of understanding as to their purpose.
