    I think the main reason for this is the physical layout of the cores on the processor chip. Having an odd number of cores would leave an unused physical slot in the chip.

    AskTJ got a reaction from D3nrg in why NOT to buy gpu used for mining?   
    Most mining cards are treated very well as they are kept at a stable load, unlike gaming which gives you fluctuating loads.
     
    They are also undervolted and kept under safe temperatures so they are more efficient.
     
    Remember, efficiency is key when mining. So saving every watt of electricity is important.
     
    (Unless they are using free electricity. Lucky bastards)

    @bleedblue Link to online listing. 
    I7 8th gen, 16gb, 1080 non ti version. 2tb hybrid sshd. 
    Not that great a deal price wise. No screen either.
    Build it yourself or find a mate to help. You'll learn enough to maintain it in the future and have a much better pc. 
    For that price you could probably get a 9700k, 1080ti, 16gb, 1TB SSD and 4TB HDD or something like that.

    Sell the i7, ram and the board, and get an 8700K. Pair with a good cooler and it'll smash through games.

    Do you want a new screen or a new CPU?
     
    Linus did a display replacement on a laptop recently, so I doubt it would be an issue.

    @M.Yurizaki said it perfectly.
     
    That 90% will be how you handle the camera, what you film and how you edit it.

    Whatever one works for you that gets you the results you want.
     
    Really equipment is like 10% of the equation. How you use it and what you do with it is the other 90%

    M.2 slots shouldn't need cooling. Just airflow. If you really want cooling, here.
     

     
    ^ (that's an M.2 slot waterblock)
     
    There are M.2 heatsinks that sell for less than $20 though.

    AskTJ reacted to rmurph17 in The LTT "Feeling"   
    Hi all, 
     
    First of all this post is NOT a swipe at LTT or Linus or anyone else. I just think that the "feeling" behind LTT videos has changed over the years. Maybe it's just nostalgia, but when I first started watching Linus Tech Tips, they were in the house and all the videos had a personal feeling to them, they felt more fun and due to that I felt more of a connection to the content. 
     
    Nowadays I feel that LTT videos have become much more clinical, they seem to be geared more commercially, which is fine as LMG is a business after all and everyone has got to eat, but I don't have the same feeling back from the new content and this may be an issue solely related to me, so is there anyone else that thinks the "feeling" of LTT videos has changed overtime? 
     
    Just wondering
