Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

As a headphone enthusiast, I'd really like to see a vid doing a round up of the great $200 or less headphones out there.   As opposed to doing absurdly expensive stuff or cheap junk.  You could collab with DMS again or a few other youtubers.  You'd be surprised just at just how many great affordable options there are today

Video on determining system power draw and selecting a proper PSU.  With the 3080 coming out and Nvidia recommending a 750 W PSU, a lot of people with 650 W PSUs are wondering if we can get away with it.  Most of the forum posts on the topic seem to be split down the middle on whether it will be ok or not.

A look back at the short lived "HDMI Input" on laptops like the Alienware M17x R3. I still have one and use it when i need an extra screen for an Xbox or if need to test if a screen has crapped itself. Personally i really liked this feature and was a bit disappointed when the stopped having it on there laptops. Considering how good laptop screens are now days (high refresh rate IPS etc) it's a real shame you cant buy a laptop with HDMI in. Especially with the next gen consoles coming out. Yes i know you can stream it etc but still i much preferred having the HDMI in.

HI, I was really looking forward to LTT's 3080 review to get more info on Nvidia's implementation of HDMI 2.1 on it's 30 Series cards. A Reddit Post by Nvidia says that 30 Series' HDMI 2.1 is full 48 Gbps, means it can do full 4K 120Hz 4:4:4 12-bit. Now what remains to be known is IF Nvidia implemented the full specs of HDMI 2.1 or not, including VRR (in addition to their proprietary G-Sync), ALLM, QFT & QMS etc. 

 

Maybe LTT, Linus or Anthony can test the 3080 on their LG C9 and check the new HDMI 2.1 features. BTW LG downgraded their HDMI to 40 Gbps on 2020 CX as compared to the 2019 C9's HDMI being 48 Gbps. While it's a seperate story that LG left out this "downgrade" detail and the CX owners were outraged, but maybe 3080 + C9 can make a good informational video. Although, some C9 owners have reported on Reddit of screen flickering while running games on 3080 at 4K120hz on HDMI 2.1 and might need a Driver update from Nvidia. 

 

The 2019 C9 has full 48Gbps ports capable of 4K 120Hz 4:4:4 12-bit.

The 2020 CX only has 40Gbps ports capable of 4K 120Hz 4:4:4 10-bit.

 

oh and the upcoming Xbox Series X also has 40Gbps port.

I think you could do a very interesting and educational video about pfSense. It's a free open source FreeBSD based firewall/router operating system which can be installed on any computer just like a Linux distro or something. Pair that with a two-slot or bigger Intel network card and you have an incredibly awesome enterprise-grade router. Best of all it requires practically no configuration at all to work just like any normal consumer router, it has everything set ready. Your PiHole video was already good content, but this thing has a much more powerful adblocker. I think many people would be interested in the VPN capabilities too. You can very easily setup a VPN client so that your VPN affects all devices on your network, or even better you can create your own VPN server and connect to it for example from a free WiFi and have a secure network connection and access to your NAS. etc. You can also do interesting stuff like setup a HTTP cache for Steam downloads. 

One bad thing about pfSense is that it has basically no support for internal WiFi cards. This means you have to use an external access point for WiFi networks.

I'm new at the whole forum vibe. Surrounding all the hype of the Nvidea 3000 series cards. If Linus can get his hands on the 3090 since it supports sli to build a new compensator, that would be cool or do you guys think their waiting for a Zen 3 "Threadripper". Excuse my grammer.

Hiya!

With the rising demand of computer builds and recent interest in items like the RTX 3080, it got me thinking about a thematic idea for your videos. Because there are some likely first time pc builders with this recent surge, it would be neat if there was an instructional video guide for beginners. Admittedly, I would be one of those people. My initial thinking would be a format akin to an infomercial where there is the one experienced builder, alongside a newbie processing how to build for the first time. A lot of tech videos are mid to high level thinking, whereas these would be more digestible starting points in the tech space, going over the basics and fundamentals of a build,  for example. LMG puts a lot of effort and quality into the videos, so I know this would be easily accomplished. I would love to learn the basics in this format, that would allow me to better understand the higher level videos without one feeling like they're in the weeds. It would also allow a viewer to feel a sense of accomplishment and the feeling of growing with the channel, likely leading to increased viewership and (LTT store purchases). Thanks!

They made a full build livestream just a month or 2 ago.

Turns out there is a thread for that huh... (sorry colton for that DM...)

 

Anyways, could you guys make a full review on the Logitech G X Herman Miller Embody Gaming Chair and have Taran as a second host (and actually have him try the chair for a few days) ?

 

I'm highly interested in said chair, but would also like to also hear from someone who's struggling with ergonomics like Taran, especially because you guys seem to have missed a paddle on the left hand side that adjusts the tension when you lean back.

 

Other than that, great video; hoping for a follow up.

 

Link to the ShortCircuit Video for the uninitiated

So I bought the Chair anyways (The regular embody - not the logitech one) and at least for me that chair does wonders.

Ofc it doesn't just fix every problem, but at least my constant back pain is pretty much solved. The feature they call "backfit technology" turns out to be way more important than I initially thought as it can essentially changes the backrest between flat and curved.

I probably could've solved my problem with a cheaper chair ... but whatever, I'm quite happy

saw the water cooling chair idea, 

 

 

I think it is awesome, but how about something like an air cooled chair. 

 

might be worth something... pardon the self-plug, just think its a "more functional" idea... (Fans not included)

How about a video on wireless streaming systems like;

Nyrius Aries Pro+ Wireless HDMI Video Transmitter & Receiver to Stream 1080p Video

or any other similar

 

Isn't the futur wireless?

Linus Tech Tips

Hello Linus and the media group team, firstly I'd like to say thank you for all your hard work. The videos you make are inspiring to me. The reason for my message is, I would like to see a redo of a video you done 5 years ago with ncix. It was the video that questioned whether or not you should turn off your computer or not. I would like to know do you still stand by what you said in that video even after 5 years and with modern technology. There are so many conflicting answers and wanted to know the facts.
Kind regards,
James

How about a video to help someone pick out the best sized radiator for liquid cooling a CPU?

Im looking into upgrading my own CPU's cooling to liquid but I am on a budget and trying to figure out If it's really worth saving up for a 360mm raditor or if I'm better off just sticking with a 120mm or maybe even somewhere in between. I have the Conger Panzer Max as My tower so i choose between many different sizes of radiators to put in various locations so im wondering if bigger really does mean it's better.Screenshot_20200922-223430_Firefox.thumb.jpg.01892767c6a8baf0c48c23c06c201f94.jpg

DropBox as Cloud backup is great even has competitive pricing with Google. This due to the fact that it is block based rather file based. Do an update of your cloud backup "ideas".

Hi, I left a comment on your recent video about RTX 3090 on 8K TV.. Since you have the card at the moment, interesting increment would be to see the comparison with the GPU PassThrough configuration. Myself and plenty others are running TVs gaming via pass-through setup (GPU and CPU - host-passthroug, + hugepages) to my TV and curious about the cost of this setup compared to running it natively.

 

Appreciate, Michal

Revisit peltier cooling but use it like some server farms use liquid cooling. You cool the intake air below ambient with a chilled loop then run a tower cooler inside the case. The peltier doesn't have to keep up with the cpu wattage just gives you better intake temps for cpu and gpu. 

 

Current Config:

Spoiler

R5 2600X @4.1ghz all core, 16GB Patriot 3200mhz, 1TB XPG SX8200 Pro nvme, RTX 2070 Duke, CM Elite 110 mitx, pair of KRK Rokit 6 monitors with 10in sub, BenQ TH671ST projector for 150" screen. 

MSI Prestige 14 with too many cooling mods to list out (it's quiet now)

Winter's coming so it's time for fanless extreme overclocking. Toss the fanless case outside for - 20c passive cooling and watch the case steam off in the cold weather.

Whenever you do the 16K Gaming Revisit, I have a few ideas of things you could do with that:

-Of course, some arrangement where the center of the array is actually on a screen is best, so maybe 24K Gaming?

-Instead of just running modern games, try doing something like Pacman or other retro games on the giant screen. Giant Pacman could be a pretty cool, highly immersive experience

-Of Course, maybe use a few 3090's to actually get some good performance (or maybe Ampere Quadro's when they come out)

-A 12k screen setup for editing the 12K footage from those Blackmagic cameras you are getting could be useful/cool (you could actually see the footage at full resolution to see how insane it is). (A 24K setup could be used for this too)

-Why not just make a 360 degree surround setup (maybe like a small room) that could be used for shooter simulations and such? That would be super cool!

 

Good Luck finding a way to hang any of those insane display sets!
