Out of the 3 candidates I guess the only logical choice was the one that actually had an upgradable system? Too bad he was the only non-gamer in the group...I wonder if he spoke to his better half before promising to hook up the computer again?

in my opinion they shouldn't have picked someone who first had to promise to actually use the machine. 

 

like give it to someone who is actually going to use it to it's full potential...

Interesting to see the kind of computers the LTT staff use at home, it shows that different professions tend to dictate your computing needs at home. And how much Linus pays them (insert Linus kappa here, why is that not an emoticon?). I'm surprised they didn't upgrade his storage other than an OS SSD. I'm not too sure about the final selection, I can see why maybe Linus picked who he did, but I'm not sure he'll actually use it.

 

Semi-related to the video though I feel like I need a small rant.

 

It feels like any time AMD releases a new line of CPUs, Intel goes ham on marketing and sponsored content, and LTT seems to happily be party to this, since there's almost no coverage of Ryzen/TR builds both times they've been released. I get the feeling Intel is trying to make AMD's offerings irrelevant by just pushing their name up front with content creators as much as possible. I really worry about how objective LTT seems and how objective other people see LTT when they do "Value build"s with more expensive Intel processors just because it's sponsored by Intel, and just flood out Intel sponsored videos after every AMD launch. These are interesting times yet I feel like LTT only shows one side of the story.

 

I really want to see a better response to competition from Intel, all this flailing is what's driving me to AMD for the first time in over 15 years. I want to see Intel pull it's finger out and do better, but this... this is just sad to watch. Especially since this Promo is US/Canada only. AMD really should be countering with their own marketing too

 

I have no problem with sponsored content, but this has had me scratching my chin for some time. We get to see some interesting videos from LTT though, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I contend that the instant you replace the MotherBoard it becomes a new computer... rather than an "upgrade" of an old computer. 

 

Everything you could swap out for another part... the CPU... even the case... but the moment you toss the MB... you're no longer upgrading a computer and just building a new one in an old case.

I find it hilarious they switched first Intel HEDT with Hex Core support (X58), to first Intel Mainstream with Hex Core support (Z370) :D


CPU : Xeon E5-1680 v2 @ 4,3 GHz + Hydronaut + TRVX + 2x Delta 38mm PWM
MB : Sabertooth X79 (BIOS 4801 + NVMe mod + uCode update)
RAM : 8x A-Data DDR3 XPG 2000X 2GB @ 1868MHz CL8.9.8.24 CR2T, Quad Channel.
GPU : ASUS GTX 1080 (FE)

What happened to the X58 motherboard, you're right some of use are dying to get our hands on one.

 

Can you put it in the classifieds? Have a giveaway? Let us know it's finally in use? 

 

Pretty please with sugar on top. 


If anyone asks you never saw me.

Just felt like teasing @Redicat and @App4that

*waves fists at Pyrii* (in a joking way)

 

I have 2 w3540s and a x5660, really want a X58 custom board so I can overclock it, but if you find a board they're sometime more than modern brand new ones. It's crazy. Keep living the dream, hope that board of yours has many days left in it.

My server is an Sandy Bridge P67, and when I accidentally blew the board up with a loose screw, I had to pay a king's ransom on ebay for a replacement. I can definately sympathise.

Not that fast anyway only higher clock speed 

I lowered my overclock over summer due to it causing my PC to pump out lots of heat turning my room into a sauna in summer. I could probably push this board further but I think I'd prefer to just focus on my new machine.

Is it just me, or is the quality of information of LTT videos dropping lately?

You have this huge media group, can you hire a professional videographer, or is crappy quality of video, a trademark style of LTT?


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

What 'quality' exactly are you referring to? It was a sponsored spot, that may vary the amount of research or additional work put into a video. You'd have to elaborate for anyone to comment really.
