  1. So when I say I thought I've seen everything I really thought I have. Since 2009/2010, I have built over 850 PC's and worked on thousands of others. Many XP/Win 2000 systems when I worked for a PC Shop in 2010. I've used every single Consumer CPU since the Phenom I/Core 2 era and GPU since the 9000 NVidia Series and 4000 AMD Series. So when I saw this gem today out of a customers PC, I was blown away. Even my dad who has been working on computers since the 90s didn't believe me.
  2. I didn't say I was confident, I've been adjusting a lot, I've upped production value a bit and working to continue it, my editing has gotten better as well. I can always improve and what I've noticed is, my like/dislike ratio is much better, mostly over 80% and even my lesser popular videos have several hundred views vs a few dozen.
  3. Thanks for the feedback, and while that was not the question asked, definitely useful information nonetheless. I don't have a true identity for my channel yet, but my focus is being real and authentic. One thing that separates me from others is real world testing. I add variables to my testing because in reality, the end user experience has variables and seeing how some variables can affect performance is a unique look IMO.
  4. Hey Linus, thanks for the response! My channel I am investing a stupid amount of time/money, my day job has funded it so far, almost to the point where I am breaking even. But that is also some of the break/fix work I do for businesses and the occasional B2C PC work. I am grew from 30k-50k views per month from july to September and hoping to continue forward! There are so many things I need to do with the channel, I get about 4 hours of sleep a day because when I get home and take care of house aspects, I am testing, benching, planning and shooting. Assuming I don't have other work to do such as break/fix. I have actually gotten to the point where manufacturers like Be Quiet & Deepcool have approached me to review products, which is a big milestone for me, but I've turned down many because I refuse to review crap products. I see a lot of you in me, you're just an adult child who loves cool tech and do crazy things. You're not super technical or precise, but the projects are fun and entertaining. So keep up the good work my friend and maybe I'll be able to write off a business trip to LTX :).
  5. Hey everyone, Steve here from Big Head Tech and my channel is growing well and I'm at the point where I am adding affiliates and small sponsors. But I want to know how these work. I do get ad revenue from YouTube already. What I know is, these sponsors give me a kick back when people use my link or code to buy something. I also know they can pay me to make a video. Where I am not sure about is preroll ads. Are those just paid per buy, click or view on the video? I want to know the standard before I leave anything on the table.
  6. Not entirely sure why? I actually felt this was breaking news that the price went up.
  7. First seen on Reddit here: "Amazon, Microcenter, and Newegg have all raised the price to about $569. I wonder if AMD has actually raised the price and this is new MSRP. AMD would never advertise that though. By the way it’s in stock right now on amazon. (7:15 PDT)" Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=3900x&ref=bnavm_hdr_search Microcenter: https://www.microcenter.com/product/608316/ryzen-9-3900x-38ghz-12-core-am4-boxed-processor-with-wraith-prism-cooler Newegg Business: https://www.neweggbusiness.com/product/product.aspx?item=9b-19-113-103 It appears that due to the demand of this chip and the limited supply, retailers realized that these chips will sell instantly so another $70 can be had per chip. I'm curious if AMD actually silently raised their prices because for every retailer (except BestBuy) to raise it at the same time and by the same amount seems fishy.
  8. I bet that the ideal person is nowhere near there. It's rich/wealthy people and upper middle class people in debt up to their eyeballs in BMW's screaming at people while waiting.
  9. Being a fellow Tech Tuber going to have to help you understand. Our passion is technology, we love innovation and we want to share it with people. Sure, a different crowd/audience watches those videos, but Linus doesn't just do videos for pure views. He's a 30ish year old guy who loves tech and sharing it with people.

    Congrats on the Devil's Posts! ?

  11. Drove nearly 3 hours to Micro Center to purchase 4 processors to review (9600k, 9900k, 3600 and 3900x) on my channel. I plan on keeping the 3900x and the 3600 in a test system. I got there about 15 minutes before open. They had 10 3900x's and I was given a ticket for the last one. I guess I should play the lottery?
  12. I confirmed it with Micro Center directly though. They won't be in stores to buy on launch day.
