How about an open challenge to the office to build a Stealth PC. (things that should not be pc's)

 

Set a decent budget.

 

Cameras can follow each person involved like a reality show to record progress and failures/ challenges they have to overcome with their design.

 

And no retro game system chassis.

 

Lets see how creative your team can be!

 

We, the viewers can vote on the winner. ;)

 

For motivation from just some random guy my HTPC.....

Pics show her with; 15-7500T, Noctura low profile cooler, Gigabyte H170TN, 16GB ram, 960 Evo 250GB M.2.

She has been upgraded with i7-8600, 16GB Vengence 3200Mhz RGB, Z390 Phantom ITX.

Front mount USB's 3.0, cockpit has PWR/ HDD etc LEDs and PW/ Reset switches.

Maybe add a few of these and make a "THIS MILLENIUM FALCON SLEEPER FLIES!" video?

Can you build an 8tb 3.5'' sata 3 SSD using :  4 x  WD Blue 3D NAND 2TB  + 2 x Startech Dual-Slot M.2 Drive to SATA Adapter for 2.5" Drive Bay - RAID + 1 x Startech  Dual-Bay 2.5” to 3.5” SATA Hard Drive Adapter Enclosure with RAID ? It would be around $1500 CAD before taxes for an 8tb sata SSD instead of several thousand dollars. In theory it should work but I didn't see anyone try that on the web. Even just in JBOD it would already be great. Or would it ? Could transfer rate or IOPS be affected ? 

 

Thanks !

I was looking to buy a used 20+ old amplifier, and stumbled upon some pictures. Some of them show the amplifer open and most of them have some very sleek designed heatsink.

 

For example this Nikko Alpha 130, 200Wrms from the 70's.

Since making a heatsink seems very difficult for Linus and his team, but they seem to have mastered making copper blocks. I would like to see a video of them trying to make the best looking heatsink design they can come up with old non-fonctioning amps. Wether it is for another passive electronic, PC or a RED 4K camera. Also, theses old amps were hand made, much easier to remove parts for electronic enthusiasts.

I'd like to know what chat app will LTT be switching to once Hangouts is gone? 

My friends and I exclusively use Hangouts.

We are at odds with what we'll switch to.

I would like to see a video about the software you use to benchmark/stress test/monitor and comparisons with other software that might have been considered.

been debating about buying Aida64 for home use.

I was just watching the stream you've just done and Linus mentioned you'd be coming over to the UK to film a video at Meridian Audio, with this in mind I suggest you also visit The National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park on this trip and make a video about it.

My video idea is to cook a peice if toast using just computer components and not a toaster. 

 

I would love to see this as crazy as an idea as it is.

 

keep up the great videos!

Go over everyone's (who is willing to do so) home computer setup. I'm curious about what everyone's home rigs are. Even if they just brought in their PCs, I'd love to see them. Maybe reward whoever has the worst PC with a new GPU or some slightly better setup with spare parts you have laying around or something?

Have @AlexTheGreatish build something with a ridiculously oversized aircooler again. Maybe see if you can cool stuff without heatsinks but an air compressor blasting the heatspreader directly or even the bare chip (cpu/gpu doesn't matter)


New Rig yay

I know this would be a VERY long video (years of waiting) but if you could do a fan review by letting them run constantly for years, and use many fans you can buy separately without buying cases or case coolers and see which ones act out (vibrating, rattling, or stopping altogether) after how long. I know there could be a bit of issue because some fans could be outdated by the time the video is ready to be uploaded.

I thought it would be a really cool series on internet radio/streaming music and creation type shows. one of the shows would be helping Rusty at SOMA FM with his rack of servers looking for long-term reliability.. I spoke to him on 3/20/2019, sorry about not messaging you sooner.
 
 
 
Thank you for your time and consideration,

I have an idea for a video where you could make a top of the line gaming/productivity PC and turn it into a native Hackintosh.

You could take the top of the line overclocked 18 core 7980xe CPU paired with a 1080ti or Titan XP (2017 version) or something on MacOS High Sierra (Mojave doesn't have web drivers yet).

 

Also if you do consider this idea I think it would be a great idea to do benchmarks at the end with productivity applications and games for fun :D

 

KGP has made an incredibly detailed guide on how to do this and I suggest you check it out!: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/how-to-build-your-own-imac-pro-successful-build-extended-guide.229353/

 

If that is a little much you could always just start with a vanilla guide https://hackintosh.gitbook.io/-r-hackintosh-vanilla-desktop-guide/ and go from there.

 

Most of the time if you configure a Hackintosh correctly it will perform better than windows in special CPU tasks :D

 

 

I hope my idea has inspired anyone reading this!

Just coming in to applaud the changes to LTT Youtube video titles going forward. I have now watched videos that I probably never would have under the previous system. For instance, I probably never would have watched the recent Aero 15 review, except for catching the back half of what's now the title. Before, all I would have seen is a clickbait title and picture of a laptop, and passed it by. However, I'm specifically interested in Gigabyte's Aero series, and I didn't notice until after watching the review that the video thumbnail had "Aero" on the screen of the laptop. I watched Linus' explanation of titles, and I see where's he's coming from, but stuff like that is too subtle (especially depending on your device and the size of the thumbnail image to see "Aero"), or in other cases there were too many degrees of separation. After watching the explanation in the GoXLR video, I feel good about LMG as a company.

Can we get a Video about a full review of Nvidia RTX 2080 ti, which Variant from various partners is best in terms of both performance and cooling, do we really need liquid cooling in RTX 2080 ti? some cards in the market which comes with AIO liquid coolers attached to the GPU and also with water block attached, are they better at cooling the GPU and increase the performance?, And also Review for Colorful's RTX 2080 ti Kudan (most expensive 2080 ti in the market I think) and how it compares with the MSI RTX 2080 ti Gaming X Trio ( allegedly the fastest 2080 ti in the market right now), Also what kind of PSU we need with these coupled with Intel i9 9900K for which also enables for overclocking of both CPU and GPU do we need liquid cooling of this kind of cards... Can we get a video with all of this

Installing regular desktop Windows on a phone will mean you will loose ALL phone functionality, also there are no drivers available. It just simply won't work and never will work.
