F's the the chat for the CPUs that sacrificed their pins so that the 5950X may live.

Our Grace. The Feathered One. He shows us the way. His bob is majestic and shows us the path. Follow unto his guidance and His example. He knows the one true path. Our Saviour. Our Grace. Our Father Birb has taught us with His humble heart and gentle wing the way of the bob. Let us show Him our reverence and follow in His example. The True Path of the Feathered One. ~ Dimboble-dubabob III

Clearly turns the switch to the "ON" position.

I can't believe you missed your change to re-use a title

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

I always thought Luke was a dirty person, this confirms it.

It's great that you guys can throw hardware together from spare, unused old inventory - stuff doesn't get thrown out, hardware gets to live that little bit longer and money gets saved. Happy that Luke gets to rock some better horsepower.

 

Funny enough, the board you pulled out is probably NEWER than what I am still using right now. I jumped on X99 at launch and got a good sample 5960X (with a spare mobo and CPU just in case). My goal was to have a long-term build, and while it is showing it's age, it doesn't "feel" any bit slow. I could use a GPU upgrade of course, but that's another story.

 

Maybe when my system hits the 10 year mark (which is only four more years away) I'll have a ceremony where I decommission the rig I have right now and replace it with new hardware. Yeah, if Linus wants to do a video on that I'm all in. Fingers crossed in four more years I'll be able to get my hands on some new high-end graphics cards too LOL

 

BTW: Dust filters DO work. I have custom filters that I did myself on a CaseLabs S8 along with sound deadening foam. My rig has been running 24/7 for years and they hold back a crap ton of the stuff. Looking inside you get to see some dust after that many years, but nothing like the dust that gets stuck on the filters on the outside. I also knocked out the large acrylic side window and replaced that with some black material as well - plays nicely with the RGB lighting I have :old-grin:

I'm confused why, when they have a silver/gray/purple theme going on, Linus says "Oh wait maybe we shouldn't use the Founders 2080 ti," which is silver, and then replaces it with a card that's gold instead.

 

I mean the Titan is a better card but if the goal was to match the a e s t h e t i c better it makes no sense to me. 

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy.

Didn't he say in the video that it was their last 2080 ti and that they couldn't give it to him because they might need it to run comparison tests at a later point in time? At least that's how I understood it...

 

All in all cool video, really sad that those two don't do more vids together anymore. I mean I understand the reason with Floatplane and all, but still, they have pretty good chemistry on-screen. (And Luke's lough is just the best) Well at least they still do the WAN show weekly 🙂

Perhaps I misunderstood, your version would make more sense.
