  1. So when I say I thought I've seen everything I really thought I have. Since 2009/2010, I have built over 850 PC's and worked on thousands of others. Many XP/Win 2000 systems when I worked for a PC Shop in 2010. I've used every single Consumer CPU since the Phenom I/Core 2 era and GPU since the 9000 NVidia Series and 4000 AMD Series. So when I saw this gem today out of a customers PC, I was blown away. Even my dad who has been working on computers since the 90s didn't believe me.
  2. I didn't say I was confident, I've been adjusting a lot, I've upped production value a bit and working to continue it, my editing has gotten better as well. I can always improve and what I've noticed is, my like/dislike ratio is much better, mostly over 80% and even my lesser popular videos have several hundred views vs a few dozen.
  3. Thanks for the feedback, and while that was not the question asked, definitely useful information nonetheless. I don't have a true identity for my channel yet, but my focus is being real and authentic. One thing that separates me from others is real world testing. I add variables to my testing because in reality, the end user experience has variables and seeing how some variables can affect performance is a unique look IMO.
  4. Hey Linus, thanks for the response! My channel I am investing a stupid amount of time/money, my day job has funded it so far, almost to the point where I am breaking even. But that is also some of the break/fix work I do for businesses and the occasional B2C PC work. I am grew from 30k-50k views per month from july to September and hoping to continue forward! There are so many things I need to do with the channel, I get about 4 hours of sleep a day because when I get home and take care of house aspects, I am testing, benching, planning and shooting. Assuming I don't have other
  5. Hey everyone, Steve here from Big Head Tech and my channel is growing well and I'm at the point where I am adding affiliates and small sponsors. But I want to know how these work. I do get ad revenue from YouTube already. What I know is, these sponsors give me a kick back when people use my link or code to buy something. I also know they can pay me to make a video. Where I am not sure about is preroll ads. Are those just paid per buy, click or view on the video? I want to know the standard before I leave anything on the table.
  6. Not entirely sure why? I actually felt this was breaking news that the price went up.
  7. First seen on Reddit here: "Amazon, Microcenter, and Newegg have all raised the price to about $569. I wonder if AMD has actually raised the price and this is new MSRP. AMD would never advertise that though. By the way it’s in stock right now on amazon. (7:15 PDT)" Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=3900x&ref=bnavm_hdr_search Microcenter: https://www.microcenter.com/product/608316/ryzen-9-3900x-38ghz-12-core-am4-boxed-processor-with-wraith-prism-cooler Newegg Business: https://www.neweggbusiness.com/product/product.aspx?item=9b-19
  8. I bet that the ideal person is nowhere near there. It's rich/wealthy people and upper middle class people in debt up to their eyeballs in BMW's screaming at people while waiting.
  9. Being a fellow Tech Tuber going to have to help you understand. Our passion is technology, we love innovation and we want to share it with people. Sure, a different crowd/audience watches those videos, but Linus doesn't just do videos for pure views. He's a 30ish year old guy who loves tech and sharing it with people.
  10. Drove nearly 3 hours to Micro Center to purchase 4 processors to review (9600k, 9900k, 3600 and 3900x) on my channel. I plan on keeping the 3900x and the 3600 in a test system. I got there about 15 minutes before open. They had 10 3900x's and I was given a ticket for the last one. I guess I should play the lottery?
  11. I confirmed it with Micro Center directly though. They won't be in stores to buy on launch day.
  12. I felt this was breaking News since many people like myself were planning on driving several hours to Micro Center to buy one. I quoted myself from the thread so maybe that didn't count?
  13. The thread on reddit can be seen here: The Micro Center that I visit also confirmed that while they will have Ryzen 3000 & X570 boards, RX 5700/5700XT's are not confirmed. This is a bummer because since I am a smaller YouTube channel I don't get review samples. So not only will I be a day late, I planned on benchmarking with the 5700XT as I have sold off all of my inventory other than a GTX 1080/Ryzen 5 2600 build my wife uses.
  14. I don't think preordering is a bad idea here. I think taking AMDs results into consideration we know what to expect. They will perform 15% better in gaming clock for clock and have higher clock speeds. They should in theory game somewhere between -5% to +5% better than Intel in gaming after clock speeds are considered.
  15. Rumor has it, PC Budget Solutions is going to benchmark the 3600x vs the 9600k and and the 3900x vs the 9900k. Cannot confirm or deny it yet.
  16. This doesn't surprise memost modern flagship smart phones perform as well as most cameras under $200. Unless you're a professional or shooting a ton, there's no need for a camera. Most smart phones, especially flagship ones work perfect for vacations and casual site seeing. Plus you don't have to carry more around and phones are water resistant now days too!
  17. The 2200g has reduced PCI-E Lanes due to vega graphics.
  18. The next Xbox is coming in 18 months featuring Zen 2 cores and Navi GPUs. In 18 months who knows what will come out...
  19. Explain how the x470 Gaming K4 is worse off than the B450 Gaming K4? My VRMS never touch 80*C with my 2700x @ 4.2GHz 1.4375V where my X470 Prime did frequently
