    Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

    Could you guys make a video about how to make an WiFi/Bluetooth jammer with an arduino ?

    who thought Linus used linux

    I thought it was Linux tech tips for a long time & never bothered watching for a couple of years.

    Jankiest Thing You've Done?

    Oh boy let me at it, - heat gun to a dead GPU die to fix it; check - Opening up an old PSU and trying to bypass a couple of safety relay's to see if that will fix it; didn't work but check - replacing a dead laptop display with a cheap 20" LCD TV; check - Melting thru the casing of a laptop with a hot knife to get at the CPU, check - Placing a giant ice cube under said CPU to keep it from overheating, check - Motherboard's Sata controller dies, use a 16GB micro SD card installed in the cheap integrated card reader as a boot drive (sorry linus I did it first and more janky) & an external hard drive enclosure for game library; check - 40" flat screen TV dies, figure out it can make it work again by melting a hole in the back with a hot knife so I can unplug the back-light, turn the TV on then plug the high voltage wires back in while the TV is running; check - removing the MB from a laptop and baking it in an oven to fix the discrete GPU, check (before I got the heat gun) - Striping the wires out of some ethernet cables and soldering them to my mechanical keyboard to replace the faulty USB cable; check - random ass heat sink & fan zip tied to CPU socket; check - DIY thermal paste; failed (see bellow) but check - Toothbrush and alcohol to an intel LGA socket cause said thermal melted and got all under the CPU; check - Chipset heatsink fell off, tie it back on with twine; check - replacing laptop fan with desk fan; check Everything worked except if specified otherwise. I took the name, "Necrocomputing" for a reason.

    External CPU temp monitor?

    https://www.amazon.com/Desktop-Notebook-Motherboard-Analyzer-Diagnostic/dp/B00DGNYYHI Though for what you are thinking it would be more of a feature built into a high end motherboard

    External CPU temp monitor?

    I had a case that had a thermal probe that you could install on the side of the CPU's IHS to read temps. Not too sure how that would work with intel's dubious socket designs.

    Experiences with non-techies

    My father believes she emits some sort of electromagnetic field when emotional. Apparently she managed to kill 3 alternators in my dad's car in the first 3 months of them dating. He claims to have resolved the issue by making her wear a ground strap attached to the car body.

    wasn't the 53 dollar PC also all from ebay ?

    Also you know those fake windows security alert, you have a virus pop ups ? Well I once met a guy who called up the number; then since he was having a hard time understanding the Hindu scammer on the other end, decided it was just easier to throw his PC out.

    Experiences with non-techies

    You know what, I have my own story about my non-techie family. First of all I am like so many others in this thread the "family IT guy". Last month I had to talk her into spending 40$ to replace her defective printer... She complained about having to get another one all week despite literally having found the last one in someone's trash 5 years prior. A few days ago I get a call that her printer isn't working and that she lost display on her PC; I get over to her place and find nothing wrong with the printer (she probably was pressing the wrong button to turn it on). THE PC HOWEVER; oh boy somehow she managed to completely kill the GPU & corrupt the windows install on the SSD at the same time by playing around with the wires coming out the back of her PC (she thought something was unplugged). I ended up setting her up with an old I3 laptop and told her to wait 6 months cause I'll likely be upgrading my Ryzen build.

    This is quoting a 6 year old comment but just want to point out that it was CTRL+ALT+DEL before windows 7

    What 120mm fans would you recomend for low noise & low cost

    well I got five Arctic P12's in my case now and I can't hear them over the pump in my AIO at idle or the fans on my GPU under load. Fun fact, Since my GPU has a 0 decibel mode the fans don't start spinning for about a minute while it warms up; during which I can't hear any noises my PC makes over the coil whine.
  12. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ Windows being weird
  13. and it's still not spinning ? tried selecting manual and just setting it to a static speed ?
  14. As you can see here I have a Case fan that connected to my GPU; with this fan curve it won't even spin if the card is cooler than 50°c. Using fan auto-calibration is also recommended to see between what voltages your fan actually spins, in my case it doesn't move bellow 26%.
  15. how did you set the fan curve ? By default the fans shouldn't spin bellow a certain temperature
