oh... Why isn't it used in rgb builds on the channel? 

It hasn't been released yet.

 

Also, I don't want to speak for Linus or the folks who work on our RGB builds, but a lot of people are of the opinion that sound cards are generally a waste of money.

what about a video on how to source cheaper harddrives by buying external drives and extracting the harddrive, and you can use the enclosures for your old drives.


Have you tried to perform a sudden temporary interrupt of the electricity flow to your computational device followed by a re-initialization procedure of the central processing unit and associated components?

RGB cpu's? You won't even see it, it's under the heatsink...

Linus' personal pc has a window but it's in a server cabinet in the closet.

They should put in the sound cards on the "balls to the wall, no compromises" rigs.

How about Tech Quickie videos on DNSSEC and DNSCrypt?

 

If they would be too complicating of topics for Tech Quickies, I think they could be a great informative video for the LTT main channel instead.

History of computer viruses and malware as fast as possible. Starting from the early DOS based viruses, then the viruses that infect Mac OS 9 before Apple transitioned to the UNIX kernel, worms and Trojans like Stuxnet and Carbanak, spyware and adware, up to the current nasty global ransomware pandemic.

Suggestion: Graphics card sag: when will it break the gfx card or the motherboard?

 

This would ofcourse start with the intro where Linus uses the pun Sag and Swag...

Might not be worth even trying, but as I am probably one of many that has "issue" with this:

Is it worth to clean your mousepad or should you just replace it. And if it's worth could TQ and LTT provide us with ways of doing it?

i thought most mousepads were machine washable.. check with your manufacturers website but nothing to lose if you try it, right?

Alright... 2 minutes but something techie but also xbox one oriented. Mega views.

 

M.2 ssd on usb 3    feedING and Xbox one.   Many people may have an m.2 laying around and wonder if it'll boost loading times.   I'm sure linus can use wtf factor with his acess to the best m.2 out there.  Gtav is beast but so popular it'll fit pc and Xbox together exposing linus to new viewers while staying pc tech oriented..thanks!  Most pc users and Xbox  users don't know the ram and cpu stats of an Xbox.  Let them feel pride in their rigs knowing how better their setup is. Hahahaha love your vids.

I have a couple of suggestions for one busy Linus to use in future Fast as Possible episodes. Because you are so busy I will get right to it 😁:

  •  How do computers always know what time it is?
  •  What is the difference between the many different analog audio jack sizes (I mean other than their sizes)?
  •  The difference between all of your mother board headers and what each one does.
  • The difference between a kindle and a nook.
  •  (And anything else I edit into this at a later date! Thanks for your time busy but awesome video maker Linus!!)

I don't see a general video suggestion thread, so I'll just post this here:

 

Why not do a video on what happens if you do everything wrong?

Like leaving the plastic thing on the bottom of a CPU heat sink when you put it on, not putting your fan in the right spots, and putting your GPU in the bottom slot instead of the top slot. Those are just what comes to mind, but I'm sure there's much more that can be done improperly.

It just occurred to me that Linus is Canadian.  And after some googling, apparently he's from the Vancouver area.  So I think an amazing video would be if there was a Linus vs. Nardwaur video.  Swear to gawd, it would break the internet.

"MSDS as fast as possible" for watercooling coolants. Clearly the industry and users need to think about more of the chemistry behind their coolants. Some ideas in my thread below:
