The video I've been teasing for weeks is FINALLY HERE!

 

 

I'm going to list out the components as well as provide a source or two for where you can get them :)

 

I can't tell you where to buy this stuff, but I do lean towards NCIX for the Canadians (and International viewers if their pricing and shipping costs work out for you) because they're my bros, and for Americans the Amazon links below are affiliate links, so every little bit helps :)

Too bad if you want to get it from Swiftech directly, you can't since it's out of stock.

If NCIX doesn't support guest shopping, and some person only has a Switftech account, it would require them to create an account.

Your PSU is overkill, i would suggest 750w psu, also you wont need 2400Mhz RAM, get some cheaper 1600Mhz RAM.
EDIT:Oh shoe, its Linus i did not notice earlier. (I feel really silly now)

I agree with you 100%. This build is fiscally irresponsible.

 

Which is why we all love it...

I actually liked this build even though it was a total overkill. The video was informative, interesting and especially funny! :)

 

Of course nobody would be so silly to spend this much money on a pc but it's nice to see what you can build if money is irrelevant factor and only the best components matter. I'm glad Linus made this video!

Hey Linus, do you have a link for the aftermarket modular cables for the PSU? Those look really nice.

 

Edit: Oh wait, I didn't realise that Corsair made individually sleeved cables.
