  1. Well, this video makes me want to share my opinion, so here it is. I used to watch almost every Linus Tech Tips video, but the "more flashy" thumbnails were such a turnoff that I maybe watch 6 videos a month at this point. The few videos I do watch I find cringe worthy whenever a team member acts like they are using the product or trying to act out an emotion. I'm disappointed that you are getting more views due to the clown show your thumbnails and videos have become, since I would love to see the old style return. I do not want to unsubscribe since I'm still interested in knowing wha
  2. I've been eyeing the NUCs and Gigabyte Brix for a while now. I'd love to win one of these. Thank you for the opportunity to win one!
  3. I would upgrade my somewhat flaky AMD FX 8350 platform. Thank you for this opportunity to win an Intel processor
  4. I really prefer the AMP Omega, I think the AMP extreme looks a little silly. I really like the power efficiency of the new nVidia cards.
  5. I would have really preferred having this test done with AMD R9 290X cards, since we know for sure that they rely 100% on the PCI-e lanes for card interconnects.
  6. @alpenwasser Thank you! @IdeaStormer I guess that would be a possibility if I wanted to keep the case. It's REALLY flimsy, and it obviously doesn't facilitate the cooling I want, hence the zip-ties :-) I'm thinking about making something similar to Spotswood's "cases", I like the simplicity and durability.
  7. Hardware CASE: Crappy case I got for free PSU: Corsair CS450M MB: ASRock C2750D4I CPU: Intel Avaton C2750 HS: Stock passive heatsink (with a fan laying across the Ram) RAM: Crucial 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 ECC Unbuffered RAID CONTROLLER: onboard Intel&Marvell OS Drive: 16GB USB Flash Drive HDD: 6x 4TB WD RED WD40EFRX Software and Configuration: My Server is running FreeNAS. The main reason for my NAS is that I had various internal and external drives with all of my data strewn over all of them and it just frustrated me (besides not having any parity). So I decided
  8. There are several features I'm very interested in and they are, the very high resolution screen, OIS and laser auto focus, replaceable battery and Micro SD slot. The only downside, as mentioned in the video, is the speaker position but everything else seems great :-) Would love to get my hands on one Thank you Linus and LG for the opportunity to win one!
  9. It's hard to decide what I like most about the HTC One M8. The front facing speakers are very important, the build quality and ID are also important, and I'm very happy to see that HTC finally added a microSD card slot. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to win one of the best phones of 2014!!
  10. According to the list here http://www.vesa.org/vesa-standards/standards-summaries/ the cvt v1.2 standard is for purchase, so not free. But I'd pick supporting a VESA standard over an nVidia standard any day.
  11. As stated in the topic title, the Fiio E17 USB DAC is on sale at B&H for $99.99 on cyber monday. The cheapest I've seen it for up to now was $129.99 on amazon. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/839353-REG/Fiio_E17_E17_USB_DAC_Headphone.html
  12. Primary Desktop: 120GB Corsair Force Series 3 SSD (OS drive Windows, because it was a cheap replacement while my WD Raptor had died and was away for warranty replacement for the second time) 150GB WD Velociraptor (OS drive Linux, I got the Velociraptor as a Warranty exchange for my Raptor. I originally got the Raptor because I wanted a fast boot drive years ago) 2x1.5TB WD Black (Storage drives, because they are high performing and have a 5 year warranty and I needed the space) 2TB Samsung external drive (because I needed the storage and it was cheap) Secondary Desktop: 320GB WD Scorp
  13. Take what I have to say with a grain of salt since I don't really have any real experience with high end audio myself. With that out of the way, the OP was saying he didn't want to overpay and the pinned thread in the audio section said that the first thing that should be done to improve audio quality is to improve the source. What I'm worried about is that with him listening to Grooveshark, pandora and youtube (aren't these quite low quality sources?) he might not be able to take advantage of the great headphones that are being suggested. Another thing no one asked about is how much
