I have been wanting to build a HTPC for years since my kids have trashed they dvd player. I would love a segment on HTPC building, specifically I'd love to see a focus on all or even one of these aspects:

-budget htpc build

-hi end htpc build

-the htpc build Linus would trust with kids in the room. (I can imagine this one being especially amusing)


Please help a dad out. Love the shows and proud you are Canadian without being overstated about it.

And if you ever need to come to S. Korea please feel free to contact me and let me know if I can help you out (if that interests you just give me a contact in the reply section for where to send you my contact information).

Been looking at home security recently and stumbled upon the Wyze cam, I'd be interested in seeing something about that

Budget home security or something along those lines

the only deal breaker for me is the lack of onvif, but they said it's coming soon.

They say no images here, but too bad! They couldn't stop me! 

When you really can't wait...

More car reviews. Maybe Tesla Model 3, and the successor to his car the Chevy Bolt (not volt).

Sleeper PC Challenge for Linus & Co:

Make a sleeper PC out of one of these Hot Wheels PCs, BUT ya also have to find a way to put a better sensor in the mouse (something like a Logitech HERO sensor), put mechanical switches in the keyboard and Frankenstein a high quality pair of speakers into the little Hot Wheels ones.


Bonus Challenge: Make a sleeper monitor too. Maybe you could just make a frame for the PG27UQ that is painted to look just like the original Hot Wheels one kinda like the monitor in this sleeper build:

A video in regards to the RED camera's storage solution.

What exactly is inside of one of RED's memory cards?


How easily would it be to make a redundant storage solution?


Having seen the camera teardown and reassembly, it seems like the memory card holder is a module in and off itself, so that made me wonder, how hard would it have been for RED to make a two slot version with redundant storage?


Or maybe they have solved that by simply having their memory cards be redundant internally, since that wouldn't after all be hard, and if the camera detects that one half is having a problem, then it would refuse the card. While if one half of the card were to exhibit a flaw post recording, then at least the other half is intact with its copy of the data, thereby always allowing one to read off the contents. Unless both halves were to die. (This is though total speculation on my part. But could explain why all storage issues covered earlier has happened during the mounting of the card to the camera.)

I noticed that the sound quality on your recent video sounds so much better than it usually do. I don't know why, or if it's just me and my gear settings? 


But, perhaps do a video detailing how your video production quality have evolved over the years. What gear you have used, configurations and how you (perhaps mostly brandon and Taran? ? ) How the gear has been utilized for specific purpose and specific types of video.. 


and yes, I know you have talked about it before.. I kinda want to see a indepth full on nerd video on the topic..


cheers from Denmark.

I got an idea for a video. I've watched tons of LTT Videos but have never even heard of anything like this....

So, I was browsing Amazon for GPU prices(gonna build my very first PC for my first time ever, and I'm super stoked) and I came across something that I thought was just a monitor at first......
Then I read the 'title' of the listing. Apparently it's an AIO PC INSIDE of the monitor(34" and a LIQUID Cooled i7-7700k no less!) and had to click. There's a picture(could be 'shopped for the 'zon) that shows the layout of the GPU and evvverrrryyttthhiiinnggg. I thought the boi's would think it's.... Different, to say the least. Screenshot attached below. The PSU they say to use in the Q&A section is apparently only 415w(less than Nvidias recommended) to power the whole Damn thing. Oh, and did I mention it's housed inside a curved monitor?

its time for NVMe drives in RAID0 on PCIe 4.0 mainboards (without additional extension cards). just how far consumer mainboards can go ?

I know I'm very late here and haven't read these forums much at all. Given that, watching the recent videos on machining equipment really made me interested in what the future in terms of LTT videos has in store. Namely, looking at waterblocks, can you do better with an extremely custom waterblock compared to a "stock" 3D water cooler?  Comparing things, like machining it yourself and doing a professional 3D SLS (or similar) job is interesting also.

Hit us with your best Linus Tech Tips video suggestions! This is to replace our old "What should we review next" thread. Linus or one of the writers will read these suggestions, but they may not reply to you in this thread directly.


Linus Tech Tips

There are these things that extend battery life a lot. 



Batteroo boosted my battery life for my TV Remotes and my friend uses in his Wireless Mouse. I even put them in my dads Apple Keyboard which was crazy. Would love for linus to make a video with statistics. 


There have been a lot of conflicting videos and I trust Linus Tech Tips (Linus Media Group) the most. So please!


Edit they have it for AA batteries and AAA batteries.

What with all the budget network gear claiming 1Gbps performance, and knowing you guys have not only fat Internet pipes, but stout internal networking capabilities and gloriously fast NVME gear all around, i'd love to see a video laying out kind of tiered network performance of a few different Ethernet adapters, switches, and some routers.  


For home use stuff we're generally only talking in the 1Gbps range, but how many off the shelf routers can get close to using that full Gig wan port before they choke? Is that $10 TrendNet switch truly going to give you the same performance as the $30 Netgear at the same port count and speed? Is it worth shelling out $444 for meraki's 8p+2sfp switch?! ?


Maybe even do some craigslist benching on retired commercial gear and see if learning a little will have you outrunning the consumer stuff?

I forget what thread someone mentioned it but can we please get a Scrapyard Wars: Server Edition?

This could be really cool.. bring in a few more interesting categories for the build... settle on a competition OS (likely UnRaid)


Most Storage

Fastest Transfer times

Lowest power consumption (idle and loaded)

Then do Most simultaneous Plex streams (1080p and 4k) at some specific settings.

Some more Scrapyard Wars ideas:

- Extreme overlocking: score is based on maximum clock or single thread performance

- Hard to find parts: each team starts with a single component like an X series processor, and then has to find the components to build a system around it

- Fully portable systems: score is based on performance, battery life, and weight

Do a PC build battle. The budget is $100 (shipping cost does not count) and ALL the parts have to be brand new. And it would be great if more than two people participated (you're building more PCs = we're having more fun watching the video???). But please don't forget that Anthony exists?.

Alright, so I just discovered a non x Threadripper sku known as YD1920A9UC9AE.

There are a couple of chips on ebay going for 200 USD, I did a bit of research and apparently motherboard manufacturers do reference this particular part number, it's a 12 core CPU that has a base clock of 3.2ghz, and a boist clock of 3.8ghz.


I don't think that ebay links are allowed, so have a picture. 



I have no clue where these CPUs are coming from, but my guess would be OEM systems.  Perhaps getting one to mess around with would make a good video?

Is it possible to stuff a Nintendo Switch and PS4/XBOX and a complete set of PC accessories into a big computer case?

This will be an ultimate video game machine.

Someone in China has tried it already (because his wife won’t let him buy a PS4)

Maybe you can use the physical button in the IKEA game console video last year to switch?



Maybe? Will you make a fairly "LinusTechTips" version?(RGB?

Sorry about my language proficiency,All the above texts are all from translate.google.com

How bout 'Best laptops under $100 for Game Streaming"? Maybe a different price point would work better, but since stuff like google's Stadia is right on the horizon, I think a something like this is very much needed.

These companies are selling “mobile stream production platforms” for $10,000! BUT look at the specs ???‍♂️  


Please show folks this thing shouldn’t cost but a fraction of that... might be a good chance to use those new workshop machines making the built in monitor in case

Manufacture a hoodrat PC. You got all the machines to machine everything. Machine as many parts as you can. Case, fans, coolers.

I want to see you machine the smallest case you can to house a decent gaming rig.  Modding all the components too, like the GPU fan shroud and PSU cover, to make them fit.
