  1. Maybe ask Deadmau5 if he would perform at LTX 2019 since he is a big fan of LTT and could really add a lot to the event. (my profile pic is unrelated lol)
  2. Currently, there are no optical Thunderbolt 3 cables on the market that span that length. I have contacted Corning (the ones with the optical Thunderbolt 2 cables Linus used), Thunderbolt, and Intel. Corning can't comment on anything they might be working on, Thunderbolt has no idea, and Intel won't respond. These optical cables were supposed to be out in late 2016 according to Intel. So for now you are limited to using a Thunderbolt 2 card with a Thunderbolt 2 optical cable and a Thunderbolt 2 dock. To answer your question regarding your displays, the Thunderbolt hub you buy really determines what displays you can run. On the Thunderbolt 2 hubs that I have seen, you are limited to running DisplayPort through the Thunderbolt 2 port via an adapter and having an additional HDMI port. There are specs at the bottom of the Elgato Thunderbolt 2 Dock website (this is the dock Linus used). Link: https://www.elgato.com/en/dock/thunderbolt-2 From my understanding, this would meet your needs because the HDMI spec is as follows: "HDMI output up to 4096 x 2160 pixels at 24 Hz, 3840 x 2160 pixels at 30 Hz, and 2560 x 1600 pixels at 60 Hz" and you can add your 144hz display over a Thunderbolt 2 adapter, given the adapter supports that refresh rate. That seems to be your best bet unless you want to wait for Thunderbolt 3 optical cables. The Thunderbolt 3 hubs have a DisplayPort instead of an HDMI port and a lot more bandwidth for daisy chaining.

  3. The Thunderbolt card comes with a Displayport to Mini Displayport cable.
  4. @LinusTech I am going to order one of these cases you created with Protocase with some minor modifications. You mentioned in one of the videos you would have changed a few things about the design. Would you be able to comment on what those changes would be?
  5. I am currently rebuilding my rig so I don't have a GPU at the moment. Been using AMD graphics with Macs for years, but now I'm switching over to PC for more power and better upgrading options. I have been waiting for Polaris to come out and it's finally here!
  6. I would like to see what happens when you have a rig with multiple Thunderbolt 3 ports and plug multiple Razor Cores into it. It would be interesting to see if you could get Crossfire or SLI working. I asked Razor support this question and they couldn't answer it. I will wait until Linus gives it a shot haha. Additionally, I am curious if you could make a GPU with an AIO cooler work with the Core through some manipulation of the chassis. Considering AMDs top GPUs include AIO coolers, it would be interesting to see done.
  7. Did you guys include an air filter?
  8. A little late to the discussion, but I have been doing research on the possibility of doing the exact same thing Linus did in this video (with some minor alterations, of course). Can anyone tell me whether there is a way to control the PC power on and off functions via the Thunderbolt dock? I know I could wire in a make shift switch into the next room with some wiring, but I was hoping for a more elegant solution.
  9. I'd like to see another extreme mini-ITX build BUT with the new 22-core Xeon E5 v4 "Broadwell", 2400MHz DDR4 memory, M.2 SSD, and a EVGA Titan X hybrid, Fury X, or liquid cooled Fury Nano. Might help to use Corsair's Hydro Series H5 low-profile CPU cooler. Push the boundaries of what's possible Linus!
