All I wanted for Xmas - a room heater

Had the missus won the lottery I'd have requested this room heater as a Christmas present. As a Bentley salesman would say, "the power is sufficient."
Any other Christmas 2012 lists out there?

Re: All I wanted for Xmas - a room heater

Am I missing something?  where does it say what the heat output is?  (presumably it is "hot air" heating)
but how many Kw of heat is produced?
and is it `A `rated for electrical efficiency  Roll eyes

Powering it all is a 1,200-watt power supply (PSU).

Erm.... I think that is the amount of power it "draws" from the supply... not the "heat output"....  Roll eyes

Re: All I wanted for Xmas - a room heater

same thing Watts equals Joules per second Cool
An electric fire is rated in watts or kilowatts
and all the electric energy is turned into heat because there is no turning shaft or other power takeoff  Wink

Re: All I wanted for Xmas - a room heater

The power consumed/output as heat will vary depending on the processing load. Most likely the cooling fans will run faster drawing more power as well. With a good game running it will probably pull close to a Kilowatt.  However the the grand-kids will soon get suspicious when granddad's new "heater" coupled with a 100Mbit dedicated optical fibre is now consistently beating them at Battlefield 3
