It's not motherboard-specific. It is likely a combination of chipset and CPU-based USB controller causing the issue. So check if B550 has...

Can also buy it for a reasonable price. https://www.appliancesupplies.com.au/part/208788-w0219899/bes920bss

The replacement frequency depends on your water quality/hardness. Mine is the oracle, and you enter in your water hardness scale into the...

If you want 58mm, look at Sunbeam's offering. However, what drives me away from them are the water leaks reported on productreview etc....

I have an Oracle from 7 years ago and have needed to replace the pump. When I did so, the pump is actually made in Italy, and is probably...

I don't really worry about extraction pressure, but look at the time it takes before the first drop comes out of the portafilter. I aim for...

If you can't get a puck with the single shot, then recheck your dosing and grind amount for the basket you are using. I use 17g in the 58mm...

For those who do buy this machine, make sure you get the following for maintenance. Not my links, I just picked some randomly from google...

The Express doesn't have a boiler though. It uses a thermoblock. That heats up really quickly, without having to wait the 5-10 minutes like...

@Farseer Agreed, the SGP is good, it served me very well prior to getting my Oracle. Now I use it for my single origin natural beans,...

@AlexD Breville grinders are too coarse from the factory. You need to adjust the grind size at the conical burr itself. You'll see the red...

Flat burr grinders retain some grind, probably more than a conical burr grinder though. In the end, we all clean our grinders of unused...

With the double boiler, you can steam milk at the same time as when you are pulling a shot. My routine is to keep the milk steaming as I...

Yeah, using filtered water is fine, and ensuring that your water hardness is about 50-70 ppm is good. Water in Sydney is no problem (50-65...

Not required, unless you really want to. Good grinders grind your coffee consistently with a uniform particle size. All that effort will be...
06/06/2021 - 16:56
Not really. You just adjust the grind so that you get about 7-10 seconds of infusion before the coffee starts to flow, and then adjust the...

I have both machines. The Barista Express 2 cup single wall basket still struggles to fill with 17g of coffee. The Oracle/Dual Boiler's...

The Oracle is essentially a Dual Boiler, but with an integrated grinder (which tamps at the same time) and the auto temperature milk...

I don't let my CPU speak. The cooling fans are what creates the noise, not the CPU. Go with a big heatsink and you won't hear the fan....

Only if you play 24 instances of solitaire at the same time.

Makes me want to buy one just to see if it will clock better than my current 5900X

If your LiFEPO4 has a BMS, then look at the Noco G7200. The newer Noco Genius 10 is a bit weird with LiFEPO4.

This Kmart charger is probably good for a small low capacity battery. But will take a LONG time for a good high capacity battery.

The equivalent to the Super Flower 1000W is the HX1000. I'd pick superflower over Corsair.

This is old tech, the wire is just difficult to work with (I have it) and even the lower tier CX 150BT is better than this (I have this...

I am a professional toilet user. I make money by pooing. This is the right tool for my job.

Yeah, that is a concern with the one on Amazon. At least with Mytopia, they have a physical warehouse and office/support building in Seven...

Not really, but you can if you want to. My hands are my torque wrench.

Not again, I have enough 5w-30 oil in my garage to open up my own engine oil shop.....
