Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

 I have an idea. A vacuum sealed case. Or maybe just for the MOBO. I feel that if put together properly, and in the dryest way possible, this could get around the moisture issue everyone has when using liquid nitrogen. Or at minimum your janky cooler you guys built a couple years back. My theory is a vacuum sealed case with a long port to reach the cpu, vram, or anything else that may need to be chilled. Liquid nitrogen can be poured into this port without the fear of any condensation on the inside. The issue maybe finding a material strong enough to withstand the cold. Not educated enough on this but it would be cool to be proved right or wrong.

There could be a rant video about how manufacturers aren't coming up with a lot of AMD-based computers, and even when they do, they're usually behind other computers in specs.

2-in-1 Inspirons for example. Almost all Inspirons can be had with a larger battery and/or more RAM while the AMD based ones only come with 8GB single channel RAM and the smaller battery.

Idea for Channel Super Fun (Courtesy of Roobierut's Comment On THIS YT community post):

2 teams should try to shave a side of linus beard with 2 different sponsored shaving methods. Yvonne + the kids judge which team was best... 
Of course, that is after COVID-19 is over...

Can you do a review on the Razer's offering on casual over-ear headphones, the Razer Opus

I've got an HP Omen 17t "gaming" laptop and the CPU is only at 2.2 Ghz. What if we water cooled it so we can overclock it? There's space inside to fit a tiny pump and tubing. My CPU temps sit at 85 and hit 90 so I think it needs to be cooled. I've seen someone do this but they left the case open and ran tubes to an outside cooling fan. He connected the cooling to these two thick tubes meant for cooling. I want everything to fit inside the case. It's possible but if we ran into any snags, we can build some kind of attachment on the back of the computer. It has a really fat base so it can be slim and hidden. I have a question too. If you had sufficient cooling, do you even need a water reservoir? The water in the pipes should be enough and at the end of the day, anything is better than the CPU sitting at 90. Even without the overclocking, cooling would help a lot. 

 

Sounds like a cool video concept, would you guys watch it? Water cooling a gaming laptop?!?!?!

Putting internal water cooling would be less efficient than improving air cooling in the same available volume. 

Watercooling only allows moving heat somewhere else for dissipation, if you're not going to want to bring it to a place where it can be dissipated better it's useless and a waste of space.

 

They've already done a "watercooling a gaming laptop" but the same way you describe by bringing tubes out to an external rad becasue it's the only thing that makes sense.

Now that Linus has a TI-84 Plus CE (shown in the graphing calculator overclocking video), maybe we can have a proper review and benchmarks of it?

Yes. A suggestion I did made it into a video (techquicky IIRC), an issue about value for money on mainboards. The video didn't follow my suggestion precisely, but adhered to the line of thought I had, so.... ;)

Hey everyone,

 

I was thinking that a cool video for Linus Tech Tips to do would be watercooling a GrandMA2 or GrandMA3 lighting desk! Let me know if you guys like this idea or have any questions!

First off Love the show, great place for honest information about products I can trust.   
 
  Have you thought about doing more contest episodes?  Everyone on the show even backstage seem very likable and would do well on camera, and I think the small amount of friendly conflict would be fun. I hope you like my off the shoulder impromptu to idea and can run with it.

I watched the video about that new GPD "laptop" yesterday and couldn't watch any more after three minutes because of all the penis jokes. You're not fucking 12 anymore.

Hi Linus Team big Fan here. 

 

Since most of school and learning are moving online, the would be a problem with household that have only limited number of laptop/computer/smartphone for each children to use to participate in online class. 

 

I would like to suggest a video tutorial which enable 2 people to use one laptop/computer somewhat  independently with relatively easy steps. I have found the easiest way to do this  is via virtual machine with some modification to enable mouse and keyboard to be use independent from VM and host. 

 

They only need 

1. Extra monitor or TV

2. Extra Keyboard and Mouse 

3. VMplayer Free?

4. Modification as per this kb https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1033435

5. For the virtual machine, a resource friendly linux OS would be perfect for this project. 

 

Via this steps household can double their concurrent computer user without actually spending the money to buy each and every one laptop/computer. 

 

Thanks.

Hakim

There have been many scrapyard wars, but all running window. It is time to pull an apple skip scrapyard wars 9 and go straight to scrapyard wars X featuring Ijustine and MKBHD where they have to build a hackintosh for video editing.

Hey, I came across one of the many questions which might be hard to answer for a regular person, and everyone seems to have an opinion on, with or without any actual proof. I have recently bought a new laptop, however, the pre-loaded software was quite out of date. The updating process took multiple hours and even week later I found out that some drivers and things are not up to date. Now the dilemma is: Should I use the manufacturer (OEM, Lenovo in my case) provided drivers, or rather update to newer stock drivers (right now its Intel)? Is there any performance difference or are you loosing system stability or features?

 

With my old laptop Dell XPS 13 9360, I was forced to use the stock Intel drivers, because the Dell provided ones were so out of date that the newer win 10 versions broke the display brightness control. Stock Intel drivers solved this issue, however, it might just have been an unlucky generation of XPS 13s... (the issue was quite wide spread)

 

It would be great to see a video made about this topic. :) Keep up the great work!

Another idea:
 
Is it possible to achieve more cooling power if we cool the back of the motherboard?
It might be strange, but in a logical sense the heat spreads to every direction, so I was thinking it would be only logical if the motherboard had some cooling capabilities in the back. I then remembered a couple of videos trying to achieve better passive cooling from TechTablets.com with cooling tape and foil to dissipate the heat from the CPU.
Is it possible to do so? Maybe you could do it by trials, for example with only the cooling tape and a foil, then switching the foil with a heatsink, and then adding a fan to the heatsink. What do you think?

I always use stock apart from GPU, unless there is no generic driver at all.

Can you please do something about, or to bring awareness and attention from Motherboard manufacturers, especially Asus, over using Loctite to seal M.2 heatsink screws which are meant to be removable to install M.2 drives?

 

I currently had to return my Z490 board to have the retailer remove one screw for me, not realizing that there were two more underneath for the bottom M.2 slot, but while I was able to remove them I found Loctite RED on one of them, which is meant to be used to make permanent unbreakable bonds. On a previous Asus Z390 I was fully unable to remove the screws on the M2 heatsink even after cooking it on the hob to weakwn any glue, and using pliers to grip and open a screw.

 

Firstly here is a picture of Loctite red used on a current M.2 heatsink screw on my Azus Z490:

 

kGqUcNp.jpg

 

Here is a photo of the screws on my Asus Z390 that would not come off even after cooking them, even with pliers / rubber band / all the solutions and tricks found online:

 

fpKJ3rB.jpg

 

Also I sent both these photos as uploads to Imgur and direct image links to Asus support as part of a letter threatening to make a small court claim - so they complained to Imgur and had my images removed, as though I didnt still have them in my sent messages outbox.

 

Here on Reddit is my current thread trying to discuss this:

 

By simply googling 'Asus M.2 Screw Stuck', you can easily find possibly over a hundred cases of this, most of which are on ROG forums:

 

https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&hs=0zF&sxsrf=ALeKk02bhegfmtWudp3i1CF6lV7FhiIqaw%3A1590728993543&ei=IZnQXurcIIWU1fAPt8KaqAQ&q=asus+m.2+screw+stuck&oq=asus+&gs_lcp=CgZwc3ktYWIQAxgAMgQIIxAnMgQIIxAnMgQIIxAnMggIABCRAhCLAzIKCAAQFBCHAhCLAzIKCAAQFBCHAhCLAzIFCAAQiwMyBwgAEEMQiwMyBQgAEIsDMgUIABCLAzoFCAAQgwE6AggAOgoIABCDARAUEIcCUKTqM1j_7jNgxvkzaABwAHgAgAFaiAHTApIBATWYAQCgAQGqAQdnd3Mtd2l6uAED&sclient=psy-ab

 

Other than making a small court claim myself which I will be doing and it only costs me £35 to do so, I cannot make or afford, and I doubt anyone else is going to, a full civil litigation of any kind to stop Asus in particular from using the RED version of Loctite on their M.2 heatsink screws. I've had a Gigabyte Z390 in between my 2 Asus boards and every screw came off with ease and only used Loctite blue, as I am sure is the case with all the other non Asus brands. However from my personal experience, non Asus boards do not overclock my CPU or Ram anywhere near as well, so I have to continue to struggle with my M.2 cover screws having permanently sealing loctite RED on them.

Hello, this is just for informational video suggestion. I think it would be such a great idea if the team could create another video about the ASUS ROG Phone but this time it's gonna be about Overclocking it, tweaking it or better yet water cooling it .

I would like to see 6 editors 1 cpu reborn with a thread ripper 399X instead of the dual 8180s in a rack mount system 

1 rack for the cpu and storage 1 for pci cards and 1 for GPUS then you could just run a cable snake directly into the editing den then the whole system would be backed up by the UPS making loosing power less of a problem. Im happy to help with this project all you need :) feel free to contact me anytime. 

 

I emailed you recently about this so my email is there 

 

Thanks George
