I found online resources that show that it is not impossible to use GPU memory as "System memory"

 

there are people that have RX480 or RX580 that have 8gb of VRAM, enough to run your entire OS into it

 

also, since they are faster, would this make it faster or slower?

Does it run on DOS? Do you know what brand it is? Does it resemble anything you can see in this video? https://youtu.be/hiLlNzxDfAg

Just your local tech geek!

Love to help!

Noticed that there aren't a lot of videos about fan controllers on the channel, and the ones that are there seem to be from upwards of 5 years ago. Would be nice to see an in depth video comparing the quality and features of various of the better fan controllers on the market these days.

 

On a personal note, I would be interested in seeing controllers that can support a fair amount of fans, say 10 fans or even a bit more. I'm also interested in models which have a front panel which could display things like temperatures and fan speeds. And of course easy configuration and customization features would be a big plus.

 

Although I'm personally not really interested in RGB ligthing, the fan controllers these days apparently also often appear to offer RGB controls, so I'm sure there's a ton of people interested in that.

so i watched a video from diyperks how he made a 4k projector by himself, and i want You Linus Media Group to Try and make one yourself. Take it as a challenge!

i wont link a video to not break any rules tho.. I mean its easy to find it yourself..

So far it doesn't seem to be THAT hard.... or is it? ;)

I found a way to use any cloud as a normal SMB share and would like to share that with you. All I ask is that you make a video on how to actually do it.

 
Step 1
Decide what cloud to use. I know you guys have unlimited google cloud storage but it has the 750GB upload limit which you would hit in around 750 seconds of continuous streaming. However Microsoft Sharepoint costs about the same and doesn't have this issue.
 
Step 2
Start a linux machine or vm. Make sure to give it a decent amount of storage, because its max write size will be set to just under your storage amount given.
 
Step 3
Install Rclone with the following command "curl https://rclone.org/install.sh | sudo bash"
 
Step 4
Run Rclone Config and set up the cloud choice you choose earlier.
 
Step 5
Run Rclone Mount "Name":/ ~/"Folder" --daemon --allow-other --vfs-cache-mode writes --vfs-cache-max-size "Little under Size of Disk"G
 
Step 6
Install samba
sudo apt install samba -y
 
Step 7
Configure samba to share /home/USER/FOLDER
 
Step 8
Go to a windows client and experience the cloud at its full potential.

Uh... samba is terribly inappropriate for going over an internet connection.

It's not going over the Internet just the local network.

Ah yep, you're syncing it to a local machine and then sharing that. But then that's not what most people use a cloud service for, they do it precisely to have the data available locally on each machine...

It would be accessible to every machine on the network and at modern speeds that's 1 gigabit to 10 gigabit. Which is very fast. Having it on every machine is a waste of space.

How about making your own front panel display which can accurately report things like CPU and GPU temperatures, fan speeds and other performance related features one might be interested in. And maybe to add some fun to it, make it possible to display Youtube videos on it for while working on "serious stuff" using the main computer display(s).

My colleague and me just had this idea to improve cooling on his new gaming notebook, but we don't have the money to do that.

What if you modified the builtin cooling solution to be hybrid air/water blocks like the blocks some graphics cards are equipped with?

You could rely on air cooling while on the go and connect the watercooling when gaming at home for maximum performance.

I think using quickconnects (and probably some caps to prevent dirt from entering the loop) would actually work fine.

 

I'd really like to see a proof of concept on your channel 🙂

 Liked the DIY custom mechanical keyboard videos. Any thoughts to doing a full hardwired keyboard run off a teensy 2.0?

Excerpt:

 

Quote

Alphacool has launched a new line of "NexXxoS" liquid cooling radiators, and each of the five models are absolute units. As in, if King Kong were to build a PC, this is the cooling line he would use. Or if God decided it was time to turn Hell into a block of ice, again, these would be the tools for the job. Or... well, you get the idea. They're gargantuan.

 

The one pictured up top is the XT45 Full Copper 1260mm SuperNova, a massive radiator with room for up to nine 140mm cooling fans, or four 200mm fans if you flip it over. Or none at all. This thing offers so much surface area (441 x 422 x 48 mm), Alphacool says you can skip the fans altogether and run it passively.

As I Posted in News already:
 

Club 3D (Dutch Adapter Maker) will release end of June (12 days) a Display Port 1.4 to HDMI 2.1 Adpapter for 69 (nice),99.
This way Linus could play on his LG C9 in his home at 4k@120hz@HDR if he has a GPU with display compression (DSC 1.2) - so a RTX or AMD Navi
or I could play on My LG C955 inch in 4k@120hz
(no HDR) on my GTX 1060 6GB (not officaly supported)

Would be super exited about a video, also to find out if LG C9 Series really delivers 4k@120hz. And how it works on "Older" GPUs like my 1060 6GB.


So far no good english speaking artikles, here one in german:

English Product page:

https://www.club-3d.com/en/detail/2496/displayport_1.4_to_hdmi_4k120hz_hdr_active_adapter_m-f/

69 Euroes and a afternoon at Linus home for a video I think is not too bad.

You need to reach out to Boston Dynamics and get a rental for spot. You should totally put a projector on it and with the GPU module run crysis and project it and have it follow you while doing it. I've driven one in person and they are super cool, I can perhaps help you get a rental unit if you want.


@BlueScope819 so I can see your post
