Thread For Tech Quickie Video Suggestions

The old thread in the vBulletin forum got lost in the migration (don't worry I still have access to it and I'll still look at it) so I'm creating a new one.



 1. Video should be possible to watch in 1-2 minutes.
 2. No elaborate props. If we can't shoot it in the white box with a couple of demonstrative pieces, it's probably not feasible.
 3. Keep it simple! The idea here is to simplify computer concepts to the point where your mom can understand it. Not looking for "how to peel the ramspreaders off your memory"
 I will read these suggestions, but I may not reply to this thread very often. That doesn't mean I'm not paying attention, it just means I'm busy creating lots of new video content 
 If you haven't heard of Tech Quickie, it's another YouTube channel we run for paid content and the ever-popular "Fast As Possible" series.

How to get the best performance out of USB3 drives (Setting the drive to performance mode rather than quick removal). Seriously took me a long time to figure this out for my self, always thought that it would just be faster by default. A quick optimise guide for USB3 drives could help others fix their speed woes.

If you want more then 3.2gb of ram, you'll have to use a 64 bit OS (any 64bit OS)

But if you're using an older x86 bit architecture cpu, then you need to go the 32 bit route.

Build: Fx-8120@4.1ghz,  Gtx770@1.0ghz,  16gb Patriot memory,  Cheap case from thermaltake

Display connectors (DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, etc.) is something that I'd expect to find on techquickie... Again I know there's an old NCIX video on it but I think a newer one in a clearer and more techquickie style might not be a bad thing.


Different graphics card cooler designs (blower vs dual-fan/open) would be interesting.


Networking; a clear explanation/comparison of straight ethernet, wireless g/n/ac (the ones still in use I think?), and powerline is something I don't think we've seen yet.


Lastly just a comment, I've noticed a trend in all these suggestions with people suggesting server-related things such as ECC RAM, multi-CPUs, or just plain "do servers" likely because that's the only thing the members of this forum don't already know about :P  But remember even if it's something you already know it's still something that might be valuable to add to the techquickie channel.  It's purpose isn't necessarily to explain stuff to us that we don't already know, but as a channel with a bank of information on topics that might confuse more average people who are just getting in to technology, something we can show to them to help explain things even if we ourselves might already know.  That being said more complex topics probably aren't out of the question.  Anyway I'm not Linus so... I'll just shut up now :)
