Subscribing to Linus was the reason I opened an youtube account. :)
The first video was probably some cooler master case a couple of years ago :/

I read one article on makeuseof.com and it says " 

 Best Of The Best YouTube Technology Channels " . And your channel is really One of the Best . Thanks Linus :-)

I was going to build my first PC around 3 or 4 years ago and I was watching every tutorial I could find. The most memorable videos for me are the benchmarking videos of the HD6000 and GTX500 series of graphics cards!

I found him though an unboxing of the Cooler Master HAF 922 back when he was blonde. Best channel I'm subscribed to.

I was looking for a new case as i was getting suck and tired of my old one. Ended up searching for a review of the nzxt phantom and that was how i found linus.

Actually, I was watching one of Maxishine's videos on setting up 4x SLI with 480. After the video was over, one of linus's was recommended. I don't remember exactly what it was, but I do remember all of the shenanigans with the Camera Man, and the Krazy Russian.

 

I also remember the one video where Luke was first on film, also the interim camera man after the original camera man was no longer filming.

I think I first watched some NCIX instructional videos in late 2012 and then moved over to LinusTechTips to find parts for my computer.

I can't remember really, but probably on Komplett.no that often has LTT videos in the product overview, or at least they used to.

I think I was researching GPUs for my build last year... Was looking at the GTX 760, and I came across his (NCIX) review... I found out he had a channel, and his humor and quirkiness was just too good to ignore. Then I found the forum (last November), and the rest is history.

 

(Oh, and I bought that 760 :D)

Can't really remember how I found him but it was a long time ago when he was with NCIX with the cameraman. Best tech channel on Youtube ever.

I read some comments and mine is similar to many others. I remember it like it was yesterday. I barely remember what I did yesterday so take this with a grain of salt. But it was a summer 2011. When I was intrigued by this computer business. A time when NCIX still had Linus as main host. I was going through my assortment of probably 6+ tabs of videos on build guides. I actually didn't like NCIX and thought Linus was just someone like the game streamers who wanted to do reviews as a hobby. So I kind of skipped through a few NCIX videos. I think i relied on OC3D more. And I never heard of tek syndicate until 2013 or something. But slowly as I browsed the YouTube and watched stuff I eventually had subscribed to NCIX but didn't watch as regularly as I do now. I think they made the best understandable videos at the time so around 2012 NCIX and LinusTechTips were the channels I relied on heavily to learn stuff and have fun. I started watching WAN show around later 2012 or early 2013. And since then haven't stopped. In 2011 I didn't even do anything with what I learned. I was just watching cause I had an interest in computers and then I built my first PC in summer 2012 and it had problems and wasn't really use able until I got my GPU on boxing day and that is kind of when I began to do more into computers. So middle of highschool I started linustechtips and it has been a great journey so far. Now if only I can get a decent job after university and build more machines and test things.

I was looking into hardware reviews that when i was contemplating a computer build. To which i cross referenced his information with a couple others. I used to watch the channels on and off for a bit then finally subbed, and joined the forum relatively recently.
