oh no no no, I have an X470 with a 2600x.

I always figured squeezing more life out of this thing would be plunking down the last ryzen supported for it. Thinking between 5600x and 5800x

sister also just replaced a regular ass 2080 she bought in 2019 that's overheating; have a 2070 (non super) and figure if I can get that for free/shipping from her, this might be as good as it gets before I do in fact rebuild; or hold out with 5000 series and ride a newerish GPU for as long as I can;

My PC isn't changing much; if anything, I'd might be buying a second case/mobo to build a casual gaming PC on my current hardware or sell the 2070 to a coworker for $150~ and maybe flip the 2600X for $70~
:dunno:
In that case if you have a Micro Center close by a 5800X is $279.99 or a 5900X is $349.99, but even a 5600X would be a damn nice upgrade.

I don't, but I've got a $55~ credit with B&H, which really pushes that 5600X into really great pricing :hsd:, pretty sure I'd spend less on it than I did the 2600x I have now that I bought on black friday/cyber monday

Wat. I literally buy MAP all the time at Home Depot and Lowes. Yellow bottles.
from wikipedia:
MAPP gas was a trademarked name, belonging to The Linde Group, a division of the former global chemical giant Union Carbide, for a fuel gas based on a stabilized mixture of methylacetylene (propyne), propadiene and propane. The name comes from the original chemical composition, methylacetylene-propadiene propane. "MAPP gas" is also widely used as a generic name for UN 1060 stabilised methylacetylene-propadiene (unstabilised methylacetylene-propadiene is known as MAPD).

MAPP gas is widely regarded as a safer and easier-to-use substitute for acetylene. In early 2008, true MAPP gas production ended in North America when production was discontinued at the only remaining plant in North America that still manufactured it. However, many current products labeled "MAPP" are, in fact, MAPP substitutes. These versions are composed almost entirely of propylene with minuscule impurities of propane (<0.5%).[1]

Interesting. MAP = 3730° vs Propane at 3600°F. I thought it was significantly hotter, but guess not. Still. Somewhat hotter... :o

It burns significantly hotter than Propane in oxygen, but not in air.
