Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

I was looking for pros and cons with getting a cheap laptop and just using it to remote in to my home server (or home desktop for most people) when I'm on the go but it doesn't seem to be much information about this out there. 

 

Would love to see a video of how you would do it for the best user experience and if there really is a point to do this - longer battery life, probably better performance and maybe some other things that I haven't considered?

 

Keep up the good work! 😁

You won't get a "better user experience" unless you have a really good internet connection at home. RDP works fine, but is slow and laggy compared to being on the machine itself.

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.

This config but with BurstCoin Mining lol.

Can you artificially increase queue depth on an SSD for more performance by creating more than one partition on it and raid zero them

Can we get an update video on the state of the Oculus Quest for PCvr? i.e. over 5g wifi and various cables for link. You have done one on it already, so maybe just on short circuit

Please do a comparison of the best current printers using continuous ink supply systems. Also, please put a focus on the illegality of some of the printer companies to use electronic/software/firmware measures to block third party ink suppliers, and any measures to work around them, and perhaps any ways we can stand against this kind of monopolistic behavior.
Thanks in advance, keep up the fantastic work!

I've got an idea for a unique build that I'm not sure if anyone has actually tried. I recently stumbled on this tutorial to overclock a 47xxmq laptop processor through a microcode hack and the benchmarks I've seen are equal to if not better than 47xx desktop processors. Which got me thinking this processor might actually make a decent gaming rig cpu if only it wasn't constrained by being in a laptop and using a laptop socket. Enter this guy, an industrial itx motherboard produced by ASRock for exactly the same socket as the 47xxmq series complete with a 16x pciexpress for the GPU. Slap 16gb laptop ddr3 in there, an ssd, and a desktop cooler and you've potentially got one of the fastest possible ddr3 systems. I've seen multiple people's benchmarks while still in their laptop but I haven't seen anyone actually try the desktop conversion yet.

New to the forum, looking at building a rig for myself.

How about a "Which Graphics Card to get mid 2020 version". I think the last one was done just before xmas. Be nice to see what's changed since then?

They wont be able to that for a while because new gpus are right around the corner so the video will be outdated pretty quickly


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response

Answer is probably "None"... Worst time to get one right now.

Optane 905P vs H10

- Linus has been talking about Optane for his editors lately and I'm confused here, it's snappier because the Media Cache & Scratch for Premiere are on it? or is something else?
- These two Optane drives are both talked about for their nice snappy response, but which is snappier? Lets go head to head!

Linus, I've been building up the parts for my fiancee to have a system, and considering giving her my Radeon 5700XT and maybe buying me a RTX3080ti, but ONLY if it supports PCI-E 4.0, because I know it's not gonna be bottlenecked per se, but would like the additional performance if I end up getting into more youtube editing/AI programming stuff.  Can you make a vid about anything about PCI-E 4.0 Nvidia vs AMD on any possible bottlenecks or similar?

I'd like to see a video about the speech-assistant 'Jarvis' on a Raspberry. Started a project about it myself, but the Raspberry died.

And a new video about a PC-Guide for 3D-Content creators would be nice too.

Loved the XBox pc, I so want to do 1, how about 1 in a NES case, The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) has a height of 3.5” (88.9 mm), width of 10.1” (256 mm), depth of 8” (203.2 mm), and approximate weight of 5 lb (2.27 kg).Apr 9, 2020, if a XBox case made to fit pc parts existed to buy, I might get it. Infact, I am thinking if I ever have to get anothe MB for a upgrade, it would be awesome to build a sys from this in a XBox case, To bad the CPU won't line up with the middle, I could just make the middle of the X a window & put my LED fan/cooler in. It wouldn't fit in this case. :(

Linus and Luke Personal Phone Repair

 

Hi there guys, 

I don't post on here hardly at all but while watching the WAN show tonight I noticed the back glass on Linus's phone was cracked and then they both started discussing Luke's issues. I'm a manager at a chain of phone/mobile device repair shops in Tulsa, Oklahoma (US) and have a lot of experience in this field. The back glass on Linus's Note 9 would be an incredibly easy fix as I'm able to remove and install a new one in less than 5 minutes depending on whether or not the replacement back glass already has the rear camera lens pre-installed. Just requires heat, a very thin and small wedge only 1-3 mm thick such as a sesamo or a "curved screen dissembler", some double sided adhesive tape only a few mm's wide (2-4 mm) and a pair of scissors. The back glass can be found on many reputable sites such as Amazon or Mobile Sentrix and can vary from $5 with no logo to $15-$40 with the Samsung logo. May also replace the battery for another $5 while your at it which will also require a spudger and an iFixIt driver kit. 

 

Luke's issue is possibly a software issue but more often than not it is due to a defective proximity sensor. The proximity sensor usually sits at the top of the device near the ear speaker and is used for turning off the screen while the phone is near your face to prevent accidental screen input. Luke, in order to work on a Pixel device it is much more tedious and delicate due to having to first remove the screen in order to access the inside of the device. Once you successfully remove the screen everything is fairly easy and straight forward from there. While your in there I would highly recommend replacing the battery for an extra $5. 

 

I noticed nobody else in the comments seemed to mention anything about how to address either of these issues and figured a video where Linus and Luke make fun of each other while they repair their own phones would be quite entertaining. Like I mentioned above, I'm not familiar with the forums so if anyone knows which staff member to tag so that they can see and consider this idea please do so! I'm more than happy to do whatever I can to help if LMG decides to persue this as a video idea!

It's time scrapyard wars goes back to the scrapyard! Since on YouTube people always claim how easy it has become to build a PC, go further back in time. ATX is around since the late 1990-ies. YouTube after 2005 - almost a decade in between. It has always been easy!

 

So the task would be: build a AT based PC. And for the fun: do some office work!

 

Some task like: digitalize a document (by type it in or scan or or ...), transfer it to the other team, they have read it and print it. Transfer could be via network or floppy disks or tape drives. I don't care. Teams can agree on one set of hardware or just tell the other team what to send or what they have to use. Some cruelty might come up here. soldering gives minus points. finding the correct adapters of the time gives plus points.

The most efficient team to do both (send, read+print) wins.

 

Games? Don't know 😁 - optional to me.

 

And maybe dress up like the in the 80-ies 😋

I just watched Linus V Brandon with the cameras and Taran v Justin with editing. 

 

What if Linus did a video competing with Tara where Taran has to use a Windows xp/7 pc with older software to edit a video and Linus uses Tarans usual balls-to-the-wall editing setup? 

 

That would be pretty cool
