HW Unboxed just did a 1600 vs 7600K revisited. Shame. According to reddit people are gaining 5-10% on Firemark with this update on CPU score.


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

I've an idea for scrapyard wars: University/Corporate Surplus builds. 

 

In this, the group can only build a system from items that have been sent to surplus by a University or large corporation.

I've built a few systems like this, and they can be pretty good.

It's amazing what a place like a four year (American) university will sell because of their faculty's perceived need to upgrade at every opportunity.

"What should we review next"

I would like to see a video about Hardware holding/ losing value.

For Example I know that in a year I'll maybe move somewhere I won't take a PC with me. If I build

a Rig right now, I will definitely have a loss of at least 50% if I sell it then again, especially because of the smaller parts.

Linus, 

          On a Dan case SFX A4 video you did you put a Liquid cooler on it, what would happen if you used a air cooler coupled with a thermoelectric cooler?

 

https://www.amazon.com/TEC1-12710-Thermoelectric-Cooler-Peltier-Pinkcoo/dp/B009T0FE7G/ref=asc_df_B009T0FE7G/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167140037427&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3506739549414169852&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9011680&hvtargid=pla-378975791197&psc=1

 

would one of these being attached create better temps? The biggest worry I have thought of is since this is the same concept as a refrigerator's ice maker, would the very low temp combined with the high temps of a CPU running a full load cause condensation? please could you test and advise if this is worth it to do? Also how would it effect the Wattage, I hear they have a huge power draw and since I have a Dan Case SFX A4 V1 sporting a full sized GPU I'm limited on my psu size.

In my experience hardware that's in decent demand(used 1080ti, used 1070ti etc) sell for around 60-70% of msrp, with the occasional person thinking msrp is the huge price jump from the mining craze, and trying to sell a used mining 1070ti for $600.

Wirelessly power case fans by converting the entire PC case into a "wireless charger"

 

Concept comes from the video below, where the youtuber Strange Parts found out how model makers wirelessly power LED's, and built a version of the set up himself.

 

 

I'm not sure how you'd control the fan speed besides just changing the amount of power being delivered, I'm no electrical engineer so I won't make any guesses about how that would work

A fun and informative project would be a multi-episode challenge in which certain staff are tasked each with building a PC from vintage parts to run: DOS 5, Windows For Workgoups 3.11, Windows 95, Windows NT 3.5 and NT4. Each build should be in an appropriately vintage case. Points would be awarded for old-school attractive cable management; successfully sharing files on the local network; playing a game; successfully rendering a web page (posting to this forum would be a great test of that).

Bonus points awarded for adding working floppy disks of various sizes and Zip drives etc. Watching a YouTube video and completing a transaction on Amazon.ca would be above and beyond!

I was inspired by certain LTT video showing an old Windows 95 laptop playing vintage games, the recent sleeper project running vintage hardware in a new case, and all the crazy stuff Anthony had to do to get Mac OS working in a VM.

It would really bring home just how far Microsoft and hardware vendors have come to get things working as well as they do, (when they do).

Perhaps a multi-CPU machine to show off Windows NT4 capabilities. Maybe even an old 64 bit DEC Alpha workstation running NT4 and fx!32 would be a treat to see.

It could be a lot of fun and an opportunity for an ongoing miniseries. Might be hard to find a sponsor since no one wants to sell or promote old stuff, though.

Scrapyard Wars Overclocking Battle

Hello, I am a Computer Engineering student at University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez Campus and I have a simple idea for an installment of Scrapyard Wars. The concept is an overclocking battle using old/used hardware and featuring experienced extreme overclockers. You would be able to do hardmods and softmods to any component as long as you just use an air cooler or an all in one cooler. The winning team would be determined by the percentage of performance gained by overclocking the system. Of course this is just an idea and I give LMG and its staff full liberty to use it in any way they see fit.

Use an AIO for CPU and add a GPU water block into the loop.. can the AIO pump and rad cool both? Would the water be too hot coming off the CPU to cool the GPU?

Watching the episode from earlier today. You came to the right conclusion. Quality Content is the only path forward. You should take that conclusion, sexy it up, and repeat it around the office when Google dicks you and you see some dog shit videos on blast.

 

Here's what I've noticed lately. The AMD new stuff is interesting, and I haven't really been able to relate to a lot of the shows in a way that is entertaining, but I can take into the real world. I know why you use certain rigs, but (boring as it is for you) YouTube has history, but it chooses to forget it... Sorry, you guys have to repeat it every once in a while. Find different ways to break down the videos. In depth context for choices. Non-Optimized towers. House has a lot of pet har. House has a lot of human har. 

 

Then... Find the most beneficial desk attachments. Show me something new that will make my desk better. Why a reallllly wide desk sucks because the sides are where you put all your stuff (We can't all be minimalists). Building an electric stand up rising desk, withsides I can reach, for under $600 or whatever. 

 

The most beneficial information you have, you use so often you push through it, which you should, but you have to occasionally dedicate some time to. 

 

Easter eggs. Subtle puzzles not mentioned in the videos that win a shirt, or the winner can send you a pic of selves with no shirt and you have to try to put in other peoples picture frames without them knowing. 

 

If someone bitches at ou because you get free shit, tell them to configure a way to query the same subject with fewer then 30 subs, and below 40% like ratio. Now they can learn from someone that isn't getting free shit. 

 

4 player challenge build with several crappy choices. Use that build in 2 hours in a multiplayer game. 

 

Accidently expose a breast at halftime.

 

 

You're doing good. You wen't fishing for bitching when the numbers dropped. They will always be where you look for them. They had no influence on the numbers. Google needs to figure it out. If not, get with the other competitor channels, Start open source google replacement contests. They will need to die off sooner than later. Be ready.

Don't talk about the meta more than needed transparency.

I have a suggestion for Linus, "himself" and maybe others that he works with at LTT.

How about a channel that helps it's viewers to comprehend the world of IT business and podcasting from Linus's point of view?

Revealing the "behind the scenes", mindset and decision making that companies go through that LTT viewers are unaware of.

 

Another idea i had that LTT should do, is a charity run to support groups that protect the health of the internet.

The foundation that rests on the shoulders of all of our interests is is that of the internet at large, which is in dire need of your attention!

Maybe for every view count that Linus Tech Tips receives on YouTube, a dollar is given to an organization for 1 year. 

I think your viewership would get onboard with this idea as a way that they could easily contribute,

without needing their parents credit card to shape the future internet.

 

Example of organizations:

openmedia.org

https://www.eff.org/

FireFox,

Wikipedia,

etc.

Remove RAM, GPUs, CPUs, SSDs, etc. when the system is on to see what happens for split seconds.

(((doing this kind of shit is DANGEROUS without proper equipment like gloves and stuff!!! this can brick hardware permanently!!! so test it with like shit old systems that you wont need!!!)))

I would like to see a episode where they find out how old i5/i7 plattform etc  you can have with latest graphics cards before it starts to bottleneck in the newest games!

 

is there a way to reach out to Linus about things like these ?

Install a vacuum, or any type of suction device, inside a gaming rig to clear away dust particles.

 

The vacuum, or vacuum-like device, must use power from the machine itself and power on with the rig just like every other component.

It also must be small enough to fit inside.

 

Dust should be extracted out of the device by any means. If a dust-bag is included for storage, it must be accessible from the outside. There shouldn't be any need to open up the rig.

 

Bonus if you use Dyson tech - like the V7 Trigger handheld vacuum cleaner.

 

Also, you should get a smoker to work on this considering the amount of dust you'll be using for testing. Their lungs are already too far gone anyway.
