  1. whats more durable

    *thread cleaned* Please keep this thread clean and on-topic.
  2. There's a difference between criticism and toxic attacks. And while I saw petty replies on the original video and on twitter, the tech YouTubers that are (IMO) reliable only criticized. While some were harsh, it was well deserved : if you look carefully, they covered up (or at the very least, skimmed) over most mistakes they did, while major tech YTers would be transparent and ACTUALLY point out the mistakes and explain why it was wrong (I've seen Kyle, Paul, Jay, Linus, Wendell and Stephen do it). You can say what you want about "why" the Verge didn't correct themselves, but in the end it's just excuses, and the way Esposito replied on Twitter, it was also arrogance. And that, to me, does hurt the "brand" : this is a subject I'm familiar with, but how many other subjects that I'm not familiar with did they reported on with so little research and planning as this one? And when contacted about errors/mistakes,, how many did they turn around in arrogance because "they weren't journalists"? IMO, a collab with any big tech YouTubers would be a great idea. But seems like they removed it, so maybe it's to issue corrections? Or do reshoots? Who knows. Bottom line, journalists aren't above anyone and also have to be held accountable if they're spreading misinformation, regardless of the subject.
  3. Desent case, especially at that price! https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00ZPWOA6I/ I don't need a PC case ... still bought one!
  4. You can check @pewpewboom and @Spotty replies to see some of the mistakes/misinformation ; https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/971926-this-pc-building-guide-that-verge-made-is-unbarable/?do=findComment&comment=11755946 https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/971926-this-pc-building-guide-that-verge-made-is-unbarable/?do=findComment&comment=11757255 The list is long honestly, and I have to agree with the people that say that criticizing the cable management isn't really the important thing here. While it makes the build ugly, it's not misinformation like the rest of the video. There's also the fact that the guy you see in the video (journalist) and the producer have since doubled down, the producer going as far as criticizing/patronizing other YT channels ; https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/971926-this-pc-building-guide-that-verge-made-is-unbarable/?page=4&tab=comments#comment-11759078
  5. not just Reddit anymore! lol
  6. Just found out that the producer of that video got into a Twitter fight with GN, it started by him saying that tech YouTubers aren't journalists ; After some back and forth, he replied that sponsored content isn't journalism ... But weren't they sponsored by Capital One for that PC build??? lollll
  7. I did go back to check the AIO install after seeing comments on Reddit. If you look carefully, he applies the thermal paste in some sort of a circle, and after a cut, it looks like he tried installing the AIO on the CPU but removed it : you see the paste was flattened and spread out leaving an empty spot in the middle, this will likely cause one of those infamous "air bubble" ... But seeing how big the gap is, I would call this one a cavity!!
  8. Nope, sort that one by "controversial" (some are obviously trolling, the rest ..) :
  9. And on Reddit, there's people defending that video
  10. I got it almost to 7 minutes and I just can't ... There are so many mistakes, wrong and nonsensical statements that I have to stop. It just doesn't make sense, the video as a whole doesn't make sense : how could they have gone through all this without asking an "expert" or at the very least, proof check the script? And none of that was flagged during editing or reviewing before it went live??? It's not like it's anything complex! This just hurts their brand as a whole, how am I supposed to trust anything they post about stuff I'm not familiar with? Man, it's too early in the day and in my weekend for this, I'm gonna need another coffee before I do anything else... EDIT ; HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
  11. Unless you're using power tools, that would be had to do, especially by hand.
  12. Oh, and I forgot to mention when he's listing what tools you need, he calls cable ties "tweezers" ... They have to be trolling ...
  13. WTF is that???? Mentions anti static wrist straps are important, puts on a rubber band. Says to be careful with screwing in the motherboard "because you could crack the motherboard" The motherboard I/O shield is important for aligning the motherboard with the standoffs And I'm only 3 minutes in ... And I saw the part pointed out by @Aprime at 5 minutes where he says the PSU can shortcut on the case. Are they trolling?!?!?!?!?!???!? Seriously W. T. F.
  14. Your thread was moved to the Troubleshooting section. For anyone that wants to help, the fix that he's talking about that doesn't work is this one ; https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/817379-solved-stuttering-and-freezes-in-borderlands-2/
