    Sick a dryer vent on the back of the cards and put a 120-140mm fan on the other side and stick it out a window.
     
    Ugly, yes, functional... probably.

    Meh...
     
    Not for me. 
     
    Was particularly upset that they pretty much destroyed an old typewriter to make it work. 
     
    Sure, it was rusted, but someone would have loved to have restored that for actual usage purposes. I personally have one sitting in my bedroom. (No, I don't go to starbucks to type on it, I write letters with it and use it to fill out forms that aren't digital because I have awful handwriting.) Now-a-days it's a conversation piece, and a marvel of old mechanical engineering. 
     
    I really miss the LMG videos where they actually DO something tech related, instead of just showcasing a "product." I know that's kinda what they do now... but still. I mean hell, some of the videos I enjoyed the most was where the server failed and linus was troubleshooting it for multiple episodes.

    Agreed, if the OP is buying EVERYTHING used, then go newer, but if he already has 775, it'll work fine.

    I'd argue with you on the 775 stuff not being useful anymore. (I say as I sit next to my OCed 775 rig). Although the stuff you mentioned is newer and roughly the same price so if the OP were buying everything, I'd say go newer, but if he already has a 775, it's perfectly usable.

    corrado33 got a reaction from IAmAndre in Is a AIO worth it?   
    240 mm AIOs will have equal performance to the biggest and best air coolers. (And will be about 1.5x the price, unless you get one on sale.) They will be very... very slightly quieter. However, one disadvantage to water over air is that water takes forever to cool down. So on air your CPU will drop back down to idle temps quickly after a load, but  if you've been loading your CPU for a long time (longer than an hour), it's going to take a decent amount of time to come back down to idle temps after you stop loading it on water cooling. 
     
    This is why every single "temp comparison" test with a water cooler is bullshit unless they let it run for more than an hour or two. 
     
    Also, water is technically more "dangerous" than air in terms of longevity. If your pump breaks, your CPU fries. If the fans fail on an air cooler, it'll get warm.... but case airflow will keep it from frying, and if nothing else, the air cooler is a giant copper block sitting on top of the cpu.

    corrado33 got a reaction from Torg20 in Macs are SLOWER than PCs. Here’s why.   
    Comments that most laptops and notebooks throttle, including windows PCs.... then goes on to explain what to expect when a laptop throttles pretending it's a uniquely apple problem... I guess with samsung getting all the flak recently they had to get their apple kicks in there to make sure everyone knew they were still anti-apple. If apple had made the same mistake samsung did.... then tried to cover it up, you can bet your ass linus would be reaming them out for it. But no, we get a what... 2-3 minute snippit on techlinked instead? Yeah... definitely not biased there....
     
    All laptops are going to handle the exact same way when you put a 100% load on the cpu and GPU. It's going to throttle and slow down and become sluggish unless the thing is an inch thick with jet fans as a cooling device. 
     
    Apple sells to its users. The very vast majority of which will never see a sustained 100% load on the CPU or GPU. Every mac I've used has ALWAYS felt snappy, regardless of what I was doing. Yet linus pretends that this is this massive problem that everybody is going to have because the "general" user is definitely going to have a 100% load on the CPU while web browsing. Sure... uh hu....
     
    Go ahead and do the same tests with a pc laptop of the same specs and size. I dare ya.
     
    Saying that apple is shit for designing their computers this way is like saying Toyoda is shit because their Camry can't reach... let alone sustain its top speed on the autobahn. If you would ever say that to any Toyoda engineer they'll instantly think you're an idiot and say "It's not designed to do that."
     
    It's a tradeoff, and one that apple has made very well in my opinion. They trade lightness/thinness for sustained speed, knowing that the vast majority of their customers will never even throttle the computer at all. 
     
    You could make the same criticism of car manufacturers who use the same engine in both their economy cars and their high performance cars. They downtune the hell out of the engine in the former, and push it to it's fullest potential in the latter. But no one criticizes VW for not milking every ounce out of their old VR6 engines in the jettas and passats compared to the Porsche cars the same engine was used in. Hell, most modern car companies use a weighted curve for their throttle pedal so that the car feels "snappy" when you push the pedal down just a little bit, when in reality if it were a linear response you'd be at 1/2 or 3/4 max throttle. It's quite literally the same as what we're talking about here. And no... one... cares.... Why? Because the vast majority of people with those cars will never care if there really isn't any more power to give after the first 1/4 of the pedal depression. 
     
    What does all this mean? Apple does not make good computers for power users. Period. (Which IS it's ONE mistake.) Macs are NOT gaming machines. For the last time... However, they make WONDERFUL computers for the general public. Despite what most on this site would claim, they are essentially a general public computer user. 90% of the people here aren't power users, 90% of people here wouldn't know how to max out a cpu/gpu without running a benchmark.

    corrado33 got a reaction from TempestCatto in The New Mac Pro…   
    Love the fact that people can't hate on the hardware so they instead hate on the appearance and complain about trivial things.
     
    It's the mac pro. It's made for fucking professionals you idiots. Yes, it's going to be expensive. 
     
    Have you not even SEEN the "$100,000 computer" videos linus has made for his own, tiny, video production company?
     
    Why don't you take a guess at how much money each of the editor's computers are worth. 
     
    I think the computer is freaking gorgeous and much prettier than any of the crap offered by any other prebuilt company, and better than 90% of cases offered today. 
     
    As for claims of worrying about the "passive" cooling. Did you ever... look... at the pictures? I mean... calling it "passive" cooling is a bit of a stretch. The only difference between passive and active cooling is whether or not a fan is attached to the heatsink. But if you look at the inside of the computer.... well what do you see? 3 massive 140 or 160 mm... double wide... essentially blowy-ma-trons in the front of the case literally a cm or so away from the heatsink and with no where else for the air to go.... yeah... calling it "passively cooled" is definitely a stretch. Those heatsinks are MASSIVE compared to what you'd normally see on those GPUs and CPU, and with the ducting? Yeah, shouldn't be a problem. 
     
    As for the lower cost versions? It's apple's way of throwing the fanboys a bone. Apple knows this computer is expensive, so it's giving those of us who don't want or need a hugely powerful computer a chance to buy a more "reasonable" (ha) mac pro if we are so inclined. $6,000? Is that really so much more than most of you have spent on your perfect gaming computers? There are definitely those of you out there with the latest and greatest intel extreme processor, RGB this and that, water cooling bullshit, the latest RTX whatever that have spent AT LEAST that, if not more. 
     
    Oh and lastly:
     
    Can't hate on the monitor? Na we'll hate on the mount. "That'll teach 'em" You DO realize that 95% of professionals who will want this monitor will have their own vesa compatible stands and will just buy the cheaper vesa mound adapter.... right?

    corrado33 got a reaction from CoolJoe3388 in Should I go for an air cooler or aio?   
    Air cooler:
     
    Pros: More reliable, no worrying about leaks, etc. Dual fans provide redundancy.
    Cons: Big, can block ram slots, can possibly not fit in smaller cases. Potentially louder than AIOs (heavily dependent on the cooler/fans you get.) 
     
    Water cooler (AIO):
     
    Pros: Quieter. Much smaller, can fit in smaller cases, "prettier"? You can use cool RGB fans on the rad and you can actually see them?
    Cons: SPOF (single point of failure) in the pump. Pump + 2 fans (for a 240 mm AIO) will use more power than just the 2 fans on a typical air cooler. Leaks = possible gpu damage or mobo damage. Eventually the pump will get clogged, and AIOs are not meant to be cleaned. 
     
    Personally, I go big with air coolers. I don't want to be mixing water with my multi thousand dollar computer no thank you. 
     
    As for performance. The highest end air coolers (noctua DH-15, Dark Rock Pro, etc.) are about equal (or better) than most 240mm AIO setups. 
     
    Other things to consider: 
     
    Air coolers have a very short "equilibrium" time. If you run a stress test the CPU temp will stabilize in a few minutes. On a water cooler, the CPU temp will initially be lower... but it will slowly creep up over time as the rad gets heat soaked. So if you have a long gaming session, it's going to get warm. But if you only play for 30 minuets, you'll probably end up seeing lower temps than an air cooler. However, this comes with a downside. Once the water inside the water cooler is warm, it takes a while to cool back down. Where as an air cooler cools down almost immediately. (Within a few minutes.) 
  9. Agree
    corrado33 got a reaction from CoolJoe3388 in Is a AIO worth it?   
    Honestly, the DH15 isn't that expensive for how good it is. You can generally buy it for less than $100. Other coolers of similar performance are often more. Plus you get really nice quiet noctua fans. 
     
    Personally, I don't see the draw of watercooling. Sure, custom loops LOOK cool, but geeze if it leaks? You fry your GPU or mobo. Not worth it in my opinion. And my DH15s are not loud at all, so the "quieter" argument doesn't really... make sense to me.  
     
    And the temp difference isn't significant unless you buy one of the triple rads or do a custom loop with more than 1 double rad.

Even TITLING the video "Macs are slower" when in reality... your own research shows that they aren't..... when compared to windows machines of similar build and specs? 
     
    Oh yeah, sure. No, I didn't miss it. I'm angry with the fact that YOU downplayed it to make macs seem shittier to get more views, despite your OWN videos showing exactly opposite what you're claiming in this video. You could have done a SINGLE comparison in this video. Showed the graph above.... anything. But no, you didn't. You instead just ignored ANY data that would indicate that this is a THIN LAPTOP problem, and NOT a "mac" problem and that the mac laptops actually seem to deal with it rather well, given the circumstances. But no. Again, bashing apple gives you views. Apple clickbait gives you views. It's ridiculous and honestly shameful for anybody who considers themselves an honest to goodness "tech" youtube channel. You're approaching buzzfeed levels of trustworthiness.

They make no effort to make the procedures accessible to the layman. It is VERY CLEARLY STATED IN THE TUTORIAL ALL OF THESE PRECURSORS:

    corrado33 got a reaction from Arika S in Why you shouldn't water cool your PC   
    Absolutely not. The test was stock vs. stock, and that's only fair. If corsair wanted to include better fans, then they should have. Besides, the noctua fans on that air cooler were almost certainly not optimized for static pressure. What you're suggesting is that they should get to upgrade water cooler while leaving the air cooler stock. Are the price of the new fans included in the price/cooling ratio? 3 noctua fans are going to be what? 50ish bucks? So... probably about the price of the noctua cooler they had there? Seems a little unfair if you ask me. 
  18. Agree
    corrado33 got a reaction from Bramimond in Why you shouldn't water cool your PC   
    Uh oh, all the water cooling fanboys aren't going to like this....
     
    Not only is JAY saying that water cooling isn't any better than air cooling, but now Linus too? Oh my goodness. 
     
    Air cooling is BETTER and QUIETER. Looks like water cooling just lost the only thing it had going for it. 
     
    And they didn't even use the de-facto air cooler that we all say is great (the D15). 
     
    Also, what WASN'T mentioned in the video is that while the greater heat capacity of the water cooled system does in fact absorb spikes of heat slightly better, it ALSO means that it'll take longer to cool down, meaning the fans will be running at higher rpms for longer after you shut your game down. 
     
    So, in summary. Water cooling is
     
    Worse than air cooling Louder than air cooling More dangerous than air cooling (dirty water + electronics = not good) Introduces more single points of failure than air cooling Significantly more expensive than air cooling Not as repairable/long lasting as air cooling Requires more maintenance than air cooling  
    Can we delegate water cooling to the likes of RGB yet?

    corrado33 got a reaction from jiyeon in Good experience with EVGA RMA process.   
    Had a good experience with EVGA's RMA process recently. I purchased an EVGA 750 GQ about.... 4 months ago. About a month ago, it just randomly shut off as I was starting a game and refused to start again. I tested it a few different ways and determined that the PSU was at fault. I bought it on amazon, and did NOT purchase the purchase protection from them, but it didn't matter. Turns out EVGA's warranty is freaking amazing on their power supplies. Mine had a SEVEN FREAKING YEAR warranty. Almost all, if not all, of their PSUs have AT LEAST a 2 year warranty, but many of them have 5-7 year warranties, if not more. 
     
    So I went onto EVGA's website, created an account, registered my PSU, contacted technical support (which, I believe, is open 24/7 because I called at some random ass time) (because you have to to complete the RMA process), talked to the guy for all of 3-4 minutes (nice dude named Brandon), told him what happened, how I tested it etc. and he gave me an RMA number. He even plugged the info in for me online. I then went back online and formally requested the RMA by filling out a form with my new RMA number. It took a day to get approved, then they e-mailed me instructions on where to send the broken PSU, how to pack it, etc. About 2 (or 3, I forget) weeks later, a brand new, sealed, identical PSU shows up at my door, including cables/accessories, even though they tell you NOT to send the cables/accessories back when you ship the PSU back. So now I have a nice set of brand new, extra cables for my EVGA power supplies. They also e-mailed me the tracking number so I knew when it would show up. 
     
    Overall, extremely happy with the RMA process. Sad that the PSU died, especially considering I literally have 3 other computers running off of identical PSUs purchased all about that time, but extremely happy with how easy that was. The only cost to me was shipping them the PSU. It cost me about $30 CAD IIRC, and that was from Canada to California , so more expensive than it'd be in the US. No argument from them, no questioning of my testing methods or computer conditions, nothing. Just a super simple "Yep, it sure sounds broken, send it here." 
     
    Also, this was the SLOW RMA process they have. They have another RMA process where you send them the full cost of the replacement then they reimburse you when they get your broken PSU. This is obviously quicker because they ship the replacement PSU right away. But I had extra PSUs so I wasn't terribly worried about it. 
     
    Anyway, I figured I'd share a nice experience since most RMA experiences online are negative. 
     
    Good job EVGA. This experience makes me much more comfortable with the rest of my EVGA power supplies. I think, in total, I have 5-6 EVGA PSUs.

    Also, this was the SLOW RMA process they have. They have another RMA process where you send them the full cost of the replacement then they reimburse you when they get your broken PSU. This is obviously quicker because they ship the replacement PSU right away. But I had extra PSUs so I wasn't terribly worried about it. 
     
    Anyway, I figured I'd share a nice experience since most RMA experiences online are negative. 
     
    Good job EVGA. This experience makes me much more comfortable with the rest of my EVGA power supplies. I think, in total, I have 5-6 EVGA PSUs.
