  4. Your opinion is duly noted, but there is plenty of evidence to support my position as well
  5. We see it this way: We we make good content and we want people to watch it. For some reason more people watch if we make a silly face in the thumbnail. So..... I guess we will play the game.
  6. Yes, we were hoping to get away with ambient cooling in there, but summers have been.. hotter than usual in Vancouver and once we added the big UPS it became unmanageable. We have a dedicated AC unit for that room now. Part of the plan for the future is also to line the room with acoustic material so that we can get rid of some of the background hum in our videos. Baby steps..
  7. Because the room above it is the stairs The server room sits under a wider-than-normal staircase up to the top level. The big room upstairs has 3 people in it now, and in the future the plan is to add more.
  8. Hi guys,
    So I built my first build 3 days ago out of parts from Microcenter. Everything was working fine, I downloaded Windows 10 Pro today and everything seemed to work just fine. I left GTA V and Google Chrome running and I put my computer to sleep for about an hour. When I came back, I pressed my keyboard and tried to wake it from sleep. All of the fans turned on, the few LEDs turned on, but then it all shut down, and I can't power it back on.
    My mouse which has an LED in it is lit up when plugged in, the green light on the mobo lights up when plugged in. When I try to boot, nothing happens. Everything was working fine earlier this afternoon, and I can't seem to fix the problem.
    Specs: i5 6500 Asus z170 mobo of some kind Gigabyte RX 470 (bought used, excellent condition) 2x8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport Ram Toshiba 240 gb ssd/toshiba 1tb hdd Some corsair carbide case.
    If you have any questions/need more info/a picture, please ask, I'm really frustrated as this is my first build, every game ran perfectly and now I'm stuck with this.

      start troubleshooting, theres loads of vids on how to troubleshoot correctly, IMO start with taking out your graphics card and start the computer up then. (with the hdmi cable directly into the motherboard. JayZtwocents recently made a vid on how to troubleshoot. i'd recommend you watch that...


      also, why the Z170 when you have no overclockable CPU? just wondering.


      hope i helped

  9. Hey Linus, I was wondering if you can make a video about replacing the regular black tubes from an AIO CPU cooler with your own clear flex tubing. If you can do it with a custom loop, you should be able to do it to a AIO.
