  11. Yeah I totally forgot - Sorry. Not sure about the 1660 or NVENC for editing; One of the reasons we didn't go with a 1660 was because it had so much extra headroom that we weren't utilizing, and the 1650 wasn't limited in testing. NVENC doesn't really come up in Adobe Premiere, and come to think of it I don't know if it comes up in any NLE... Useful for transcoding to H.264 or H.265 using Handbrake or something I suppose, but not really for editing or exporting. The build actually uses a Sabrent Rocket. Linus wanted to use Samsung for reliability, but the build was already done (Sabrent is what's linked in the desc). I think he probably flipped the two in his head with that line, as I don't think he said it exactly as scripted. As far as the Focus G is concerned, we didn't set it up this way (because again thermals weren't a concern with these parts), but we could have moved the lower intake fan to the rear to achieve pretty much the same result. No need to spend extra on another fan or a case with more fans. The 650W variant of that PSU happens to be one of the more reliable and well-regarded variants, and it's not terribly expensive. We even suggest the 450W non-modular variant to save some money if desired. 2x16GB RAM? Double the price of 2x8GB. That's why. We found 16GB was enough for 4K editing, if a little snug. Same with SSD capacity; Technically 500GB is actually more than enough, so there's little reason to go higher. Also, I think you underestimate the stock cooler / overestimate the heat output of an R5 3600... It's not a PSU from 2016, it's the model introduced in 2016. PSUs get revisions over time and if you see a popular PSU like a Corsair CX with a 2016 and 2019 variant, then that 2016 model was produced right up until the 2019 variant came out.

  13. Actually yes... "-anthony" doesn't actually do anything. Even if it did though, the filter would mean anyone who mentions my name ends up getting cut out. So if they're talking about me having done something in the video, that comment is now hidden.
  14. Honestly this is ironically a little frustrating since I check the comments to see what worked and what didn't, what people want to see and what they don't, etc. It's certainly flattering and honestly the positivity is part of why I'm getting more comfortable doing on-screen stuff, but it's kind of a double-edged sword from that feedback perspective. Honestly same. I'm glad I can sort-of evoke the memory of Luke's more in-depth stuff on the channel, since that was some of my favourite content, too. This is really the most surprising thing for me. The first time I was in a video on YouTube, I expected to get torn apart and was like "oh crap what have I done". I don't think I looked at the comments until the next day.
  15. What I don't understand is... Why not both? It wouldn't take much effort to do something like this...
