What is actually supposed to go here? Some people put their specs, others put random comments or remarks about themselves or others, and there are a few who put cryptic statements.

New Tech Quickie episode(S) suggestion....

 

one episode on why graphics cards can only passively support up to 2 monitors without having "Active" display adapters.

One episode on Active vs passive display adapters.

One episode on MST hubs and multi monitor set ups, how they work, why you would/could use them, and what requirements you would need to push X-amount of monitors.

 

 

in one of them you could also touch on if it's best to have all monitors the exact same make, model, and resolution, or having a hodge podge of random monitors, the good, bad and ugly of doing more than 2 monitors.

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

Okay Mr. Potter, I got some very very serious ideas for ya:

 

#1 - you guys have done server CPU reviews with 28, 32, 56, 64, and even 72 cores. Why not up the ante with ONE HUNDRED and TWELVE (112) CORES?

 

Here's a taste:

  • New Configurations (pretty please?):
  • Xeon Platinum 9242** (48 Cores @ 2.3-3.8Ghz) ~ $24,000 to $30,000***
  • Xeon Platinum 9282** (56 cores @ 2.6-3.8Ghz) ~ $25,000 to $40,000***
  • 4 x Xeon Platinum 8180* (112 cores) ~ $28,128
  • 2 x Xeon Platinum 9242** (96 cores) ~ $48,000 to $60,000***
  • 2 x Xeon Platinum 9282** (112 cores) ~ $50,000 to $80,000***
  • Cinebench R20 or CINEBENCH XTREME (Cinebench R15 mod -- the one used in your Water Cooled OC Server video)
  • TOTAL: 96-112 cores

Note of concern: I know you guys can afford to splurge a ton for your occasional "HOLY SH!T" videos, but if it's only going to be an insane 'one-and-done' thing (like dual or quad 8th-9th Gen XeonSPs with 112 cores, 224 threads, 256GB RAM, 2TB OPTANE persistent memory, 192TB SSD storage, 96GB VRAM, and 32.6 Teraflops of GPU horsepower insane) PLEASE ask Intel and Nvidia to lend you some review hardware. I would be really sorry for you guys if $75,000+ was spent on a video when it could have been put to better use.

 

Hell, if you are going to spend 125 syrupy grand on server upgrades**** ~ this would be the perfect sleeper: The SGI Onyx RealityEngine2 ?

 

*LGA 3647

**BGA 5903

***predicted costs based on pricing of current-gen XeonSP processors (see end of the article)

****Dual Xeon Platinum 9282s and supporting hardware, 100TB network switch boards, 2nd set of Storinators/petabyte storage drives, a server slot full of 24TB Optane SSD high-tier storage, a dozen NV-linked Quadro RTX 8000s or RTX 2080TIs, and like couple terabytes of Optane persistent memory DIMMs maybe? 

 

If you guys decide to check out what dual or quad Xeons are like in say.......3 years, things will probably be even more amazorgs. Or as the old tech monk said, "it will always be better and faster next year."

EDIT #1 (4/8/19): You guys already showcased a prototype "smart helmet" by BMW at CES 2016. Can you please do a full follow-up review with a production unit made by BMW, Skully, or CrossHelmet?
 
 
 
Hope to see some sweet reviews of these from you guys! xD

Just because they used a terrible idea as an April Fool's Day joke doesn't mean they're looking for more.

I have a feeling its viscosity wouldn't work favorably with that scenario.

Any person with a bit of brain would tell you that sugars don't work well with heat ..

PC temps ~100C is fine for sugar, far lower than what temp sugar can handle before carbonized.. but it sure will vapourize the solvent quickly

April Fools was three days ago though..?

In my head I'm just seeing this not work at all.. But I guess Jay can use this idea as a followup to this video:

Gaming setup powered by human sized hamsterwheel or bicycles hooked up to dynamos. 

 

Just think of Linus gaming while several staff members are powering the rig on bicycles or the hamster wheel.

They already did this but with a tread mill.

I think you should do a fully connected smart home. From whole home audio controlled by A L E X A or another assistant to ease of life. Some tony stark type stuff


They did kinda. Just not the entire house.

 

Linus did a video or three on smart speakers ~ Apple HomePod, Google Home Max & Mini, and Amazon Echo Dot starring Big Mouth Billy Bass (my favorite :D):

.

 

And a bluetooth showerhead:

 

And Facebook's dedicated Skype-machine (the Portal):

 

And his smartphone-activated '80s garage door:

 

And a prototype Renault self-driving car (way ahead of Tesla):

 

And 3 other dodads like a smart bathrug and the Philips Hue (when the script incapacitates Linus xD):

But yeah it would be kind of cool if they did a "HOME OF THE FUTURE" with all kinds of smart-appliances and gadgets ?

I have had a consept.. kicking around for.. Probably 10 years. I want to try "mains fed water cooling", "cool" depends on the season) mains water would be circulated around the system, using standard water cooling fittings (but without a pump and maybe even a rad), achieving sub ambient temps. Where to dump the running water? It could just be pored down the drain for best cooling, but I imagine it could just be put back into the system as a passive.. ish system, dissipating heat throughout the system, until a toilet is flushed or a tap is turned on boosting the effect.

 

Loved whole room water Cooling (actually another idea I'd thought of but you did it wrong ?). I don't have the time or the resorses to try it myself only to see it fail (though I'm convinced it.. "Should" work OK if not well).

 

Please consider giving it a try. 

I'd be very interested to see if the water would become too warm the be considered "cold" water.

 

My hunch is that even doing a burn in test should see great temps at 0db (if there needs to be a rad does it even need to be in the same room?) 

 

Don't data centers do something like this?

Can we make this thread a subforum if there are enough great ideas?

 

edit: never mind. The opening post got me my answer (having a single video suggestion thread probably means less work for you mods).

How exactly? Where would the heat be absorbed to achieve sub ambient?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)
