I think that maybe Linus' frequent jokes about firing Luke make his employees afraid to tell him when his skit ideas are too... out there.

I have to say this was one of the worst episodes in a very long time - as far as i'm concerned:

 

1) Overdone cheesiness

2) The build log part was shorter than the cheese, adverts and sub-like-what-not with little to no useful reasoning

3) For a "dream" build all the down-to-earth cuts were, haha, unreasonable. That was an extremely uninspired budget-sweet spot build, rather than a full blown out dream video-editing workstation.

 

You don't throw out a sponsored video with a "dream" in description, then argue that 16gb is a reasonable choice for potential upgrades in the future. Especially when a silly 1080p render in premiere pro can eat up 18GB of memory.

 

Regards,

Jasmin

 

P.S. I understand budget concerns as I don't think WD was willing to offer much for the actual build, but i prefer to call the things by their name, rather then use corporate-like hyperboles and then don't deliver

What the heck is with the sound in this video? It's all over the place, like some kind of 7.1 surround sound test combined with various forms of muffling.

What happened to Lauren from TastyPC doing this build?

Agreed. 

 

I'd also add there's nothing 'dreamy' about this build at all.

 

If we're to take WD's original intention of this build from here.

 

They’ll need a fast machine with plenty of RAM, a nice monitor, speakers, a huge storage array—and anything else you can dream up. 

 

But don’t worry about the budget.

 

This does not have 'plenty' of ram, nor does it have speakers or a huge storage array. Software Raid 1 of 2x6TB? C'mon. WD said don't worry about the budget and Linus is worried about the price of a 32GB DDR4 kit?

Pretty sure this isn't possible...yet but still. I have 2 SSD's in raid 0 and 2 WD Red's in raid 1 using the mobo controller.

 

Is it possible to use the raided SSD's to cache the raided HDD's ?

You should have added that disabling the hibernate sleep mode, can also free up a lot of memory on your ssd bootdrive if you need it. In my case it was about 40gigabyte (depends on amount of ram) and it's absolutely not necessary, you can still use the normal sleep mode, and i havent noticed any drawbacks since disabling it.
