  1. Just so people don't think they have a chance to get the drop when it's long gone. Also it is ~2min that's not actual content and don't want people dropping off.
  2. Chucked the WiFi antennas behind the IO shield, works pretty good. There would have been no space for a fan, and also we needed a spot to hide wires.
  3. We put a PC into our Diamond Play Button - and it's sooooo sick... and of course also a bit janky. Even more machining footage! https://youtu.be/rYdJ7w6QZug Check out SimplyNUC: https://simplynuc.com/ Buy Intel NUC Kit - i7-10710U (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/bRu3a3 Buy ASRock DESKMINI (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/F5CI2v Purchases made through some store links may provide some compensation to Linus Media Group.
  4. Yeah looks like she's mangled, contact support again.

  6. At the start of the pandemic I guessed we were about to have a massive shortage of computer hardware... and unfortunately I was right.

  7. You can't buy a GPU but you can help out a local business. Here are our favorites in Metro Vancouver, feel free to put your local favorites below. Also apologies for the formatting, I got sent way to many recommendations by people in the office and it would take me forever to fix it all.

  8. Because gold is soft it can scratch easily. Normally not super noticeable, but this is a single large shiny area and scratches show up way more on camera.
  9. We made a solid gold Xbox controller... and reactions to it are mixed. Buy Xbox Core Wireless Controller (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/8dPs Purchases made through some store links may provide some compensation to Linus Media Group.
  10. It's dual channel. The base model has 8GB soldered and 8GB Sodimm, so you can upgrade it to a max of 40GB (8+32). Top model has 16GB soldered and 16GB SoDimm, so you could get a max of 48GB (16+32).
  11. The Asus Zephyrus G15 checks all the boxes for a 2021 gaming laptop - slim, powerful, and very well built - but have Asus sacrificed too much power for sexiness?

  12. The saga continues, now with much more polishing. Pt. 1: https://youtu.be/FBQaV0JidZs Buy Xbox Core Wireless Controller (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/8dPs Purchases made through some store links may provide some compensation to Linus Media Group.
  13. We're making the most expensive Xbox controller in existence, made out of solid gold. Buy Xbox Core Wireless Controller (PAID LINK): https://geni.us/8dPs Purchases made through some store links may provide some compensation to Linus Media Group.
  14. HP Made a Envy 13 with one! I think Lenovo has one too but its more on the budget end of the spectrum
  15. Recently had someone send me an undervolting guide for the XPS 15. Apparently undervolting is locked bc it can be used to hack your laptop (I think this is a dumb fix but at least there is a good reason you can't do it).
  16. You can. The performance is slightly lower but it works pretty good.
  17. By harnessing the power of AMD Asus has created a new class of laptop with the Flow X13 - the "Ultrabook that is more powerful than laptops much larger than it" (not the official title).

  18. Thanks to Gigabyte for sponsoring this video! Check out the AERO 15 OLED XC at: https://www.newegg.com/product/34-233-374 Check out the AORUS 15G YC at: https://www.newegg.com/product/34-725-124 Nvidia's new RTX 3080 mobile GPU is the fastest you can get in a laptop, but Nvidia's marketing team hasn't made it easy for consumers to tell how fast each laptop will actually be.
  19. CES 2021 is happening here in our office, and Asus has sent us SEVEN engineering sample laptops to check out.
  20. NVMD I'm dumb it doesn't support ATX.
  21. Pretty sure this case supports an ATX PSU while the NR200 only supports SFX-L EDIT: I should have fact checked first. There is no ATX support
  22. Because that's a crapload of work for a company the size of Origin. Not that it can't be done (i.e. Turemetal being one guy) but it would be v difficult. As for the ambient temps you're definitely right, but it's hard to test. Before we could occasionally do it in a small office, but now we can't put more than one person in those rooms i.e. can't film it.
  23. Thanks to ORIGIN PC for sponsoring this video!

  24. Well crap. We do have a contact there so I'll see if we can do anything.
