Each of the partner products comes in at some point during the 3-part series :)

 

Ep. 2 should come this weekend, with Ep. 3 coming later next week!

Can someone please tell me what Linus was using to clean the servers as I have been looking for something like that for a while.

Presumably it was just a small air compressor, something like this.

I wasn't sure what could be used pressure wise... don't want to get something too powerful in case it breaks something.

You can adjust the max PSI output usually. That being said, I use the blower end of a shop vac without issue.

 

Oh, if you use a compressor, you might consider a inline filter so any water in the compressor tank don't spray onto components.

Ok thank you, you have any idea of what PSI I should set it to? Just thinking will something like a camping bed pump work, something that is simple and won't be too expensive if you get me.

This may be of help to Linus to get his server room organized:

Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

 

Pyo.

Honestly, Taran has been on fucking point this week with the editing. This week has had some of the funniest LTT vids in a long time. Good job Taran.

I tend to prefer 100-120 so it sprays harder, but if you want to be safe, drop it to 80 and below.

 

However, I'm not sure if a camping bed pump will be fast enough on the recovery (It's very easy to drain a small tank compressor). You might end up angry at the recharge time for the compressor. It depends on how fast the recovery is for that compressor.

 

If you want the cheap manual way, this works mostly well for most tasks. I usually use this to clean my laptop heatsink (Yeah, I know it's for camera lenses):

Who says it was all Taran? :P unless I missed a huge hint


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

Instead of just using a passive approach of dust filters on the cabinet / rack. (I assume from the clips in the video) Why not add a HEPA air filter to the room to more actively remove and clean the dust from the air? 

If LTT did things logically, we wouldn't have half of the content that we do.
