Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Display connectors (DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, etc.) is something that I'd expect to find on techquickie... Again I know there's an old NCIX video on it but I think a newer one in a clearer and more techquickie style might not be a bad thing.

 

Different graphics card cooler designs (blower vs dual-fan/open) would be interesting.

 

Networking; a clear explanation/comparison of straight ethernet, wireless g/n/ac (the ones still in use I think?), and powerline is something I don't think we've seen yet.

 

Lastly just a comment, I've noticed a trend in all these suggestions with people suggesting server-related things such as ECC RAM, multi-CPUs, or just plain "do servers" likely because that's the only thing the members of this forum don't already know about :P  But remember even if it's something you already know it's still something that might be valuable to add to the techquickie channel.  It's purpose isn't necessarily to explain stuff to us that we don't already know, but as a channel with a bank of information on topics that might confuse more average people who are just getting in to technology, something we can show to them to help explain things even if we ourselves might already know.  That being said more complex topics probably aren't out of the question.  Anyway I'm not Linus so... I'll just shut up now :)

How to make an old laptop as fast as when it was new. Basically, format everything and reinstall. Just installed debian on an 06 thinkpad and it runs 1080p video content and if more people knew how to get a basic typing/web browsing machine from something old and dead it would be cool.

how to choose between 32 bit and 64 bit....just asking for myself but may help others also...

Unless you're re-installing windows on an older system, go with 64bit

Power supply cables

or

Mobo headers

 

I have loads of customers calling me asking why they have some headers not used up, or on a non modular PSU, why some are not connected

Something about drivers, where to find them ect, I'm not sure if it really fits with the TechQuickie style but I've had so many people ask me about updates and such.

But if you're using an older x86 bit architecture cpu, then you need to go the 32 bit route.

yes true , but if you've got a x86 cpu, you'll wont have more than 4gig in your machine any way.

mind you, saying that :o I bet there are people with 8 gig of ram in their machines, that are running 32bit OS lol

why a $120 card like this 7770 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121642R with 2gb of ram and core clock at 1ghz is worse than this gtx 680, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121634 even though they both have 2 gigs of ram and share similar clock speeds, and the 7770 is 4 times cheaper.

This would probably fall more in to the full review category, but how about a quick comparison of the top thermal pastes on a standardized test bench?
