Do you have the latest BIOS update? Last that I heard 1 16GB stick was fine (as you said) but two are not. Hopefully a BIOS update will fix it soon™.
I doubt it would make a huge difference, the bigger problem is the lack of an iGPU, so the dGPU has to run all the time. With some undervolting to the CPU and GPU I imagine you could get a fair bit more battery life, but even a 50% uplift is still just 1.5h....
I'm only 20 minutes in, and I'm convinced that this woman needs to work at LTT. Reasons:
She legitimately drives Linus up a wall and he seems to love her for it
She has no filter between her brain and her mouth
We can see her mature into an accomplished PC builder and tech expert during the course of her tenure
Ok, maybe "mature" is the wrong word. She should never mature.
She has zero regard for the camera and is completely and totally confident in front of it, as if she doesn't give a fuck about its presence (I don't think she does)
You'd be doing a fellow Canuck a solid by getting her out of Phoenix. Seriously, I went to college in Phoenix. That city is like the underpants catching Satan's eternal shart. Any person removed from there is another soul saved.
Did I mention the hilarious lack of a filter?
@LinusTech, for real, hire her. It would be the best thing to happen to your channel since you dropped that Xeon.
