Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

Here's an Idea I thought of after being in this year's folding month and seeing some of the rigs other people have put together: You guys should try and make an insane and compact folding rig using mounts like you can get from mnpctech.com (and maybe some other custom stuff). Try and fit as many GPU's into an average sized case as you can, kind of like you did with hard drives on the budget 4K video editing NAS. This could possibly be done using a mix of random GPU's you have around and new ones (or at least current models). You could even make this a 2 part series: The first one with air cooled GPU's, the second one watercooled (though the CPU may need at least an AIO for the first one anyways), and possibly a third with custom mounting hardware you guys could make (maybe some work with Protocase too). This could also have 2 different approaches used: the Sleeper Folding Rig and one that is all out, custom water cooled, with a good amount of RGB stuff. I don't really care what route you would take with this, but some folding rigs like this would be interesting (and could maybe be a mini series like Crypto was).

Get LG to sponsor this one. Might need to wait a little bit until stock improves for this one since it requires a specific GPU.

 

Have them send over 6 x ultrawide ultracurved monitors (whatever monitor they make that has the sharpest curve) and hook them all up to a Gigabyte Aorus RTX 3080 to make a full 360° setup.  

+1 buy a few packs of the Asus de-bezel kits so it's a seemless 360.

So you know there are huge radiator for cooling that use 9 120mm fans for max performance right? What about we replace that expensive 9 fans and put one big table fan blowing air right to it. I'm assuming that the table fan will outperform the 9 expensive fan ... in my country . Those 9 fans cost more than all of my table fans.. and I have 4 table fans at my home.

 

Could be a fun "crappy cooling ideas"..

You can only use 4 at the same time, it just offers more flexible choice between DP and HDMI.

Hit us with your best Linus Tech Tips video suggestions! This is to replace our old "What should we review next" thread. Linus or one of the writers will read these suggestions, but they may not reply to you in this thread directly.

 

Linus Tech Tips

Can you do a video comparing the performance of TLC Nand with DRAM cache vs MLC Nand that is dramless vs SLC that is DRAMless?

Also show a breakdown of the price to performance of the various disks.

Will really appreciate it, thanks!

You can't run 3080s in SLI. You can have 2 of them unlinked though, but not sure surround would support that.

Two ideas:

- ( The Home Data Archive) Build a PC that could maybe possibly survive a small Carrington Event solar flare, like 1998 Quebec sized.  Use things like grounded Faraday cages and such.

 

- The Steam Punk Calculator.  Or, the Fallout 3 challenge.  Build a PC that does not use sim-conductors (like in the fallout video game  universe) only uses Vacuum tubes and can run an early kernel of Linux on a 100 x100P  LED light Bord.  Using the latest technology and software,  3D printing, Angelo computing PCB board printers and 1000's of small vacuums tubes, could you make a super simple computer that docent use any solid state semi conductors.  However as a cheat you can use a standers multiplexer circlet and LED driver as it would be super annoying to do that with vacuum tubes. Basically I just want to see how good of a vacuum tube computer that can be made by a home enthusiast / stem punk enthusiast.  

- You can use modern liquid cooling,

-You Can use modern CADD software

-3D printing

- Electrical circuit planning software.

- Modern Boolean architecture.

- And any other advantages that would help you make a at home Steam punk calculator that could possibility be strong enough to run something simple software on a small LED dot screen.  Could be 100 x 100 or something bigger.

The new "OnePlus Nord N100"

 

With the pricetag of 179€ (about USD180) it would be super interesting to see how well does this latest addition to cheaper lineup by oneplus fare compared to  midrange and flagship options. It's spec list certainly looks pretty promising!

The reason why I write to LTT. Is that from the many youtubers I follow, you might be the only team that has the manpower to do this idee I have to the upcoming annually PC build guide. Why not change the way the build criteria you pick the parts?
So instead of having a price range of each tier. Like all other youtubers, then change it to FPS goals...
So 1080p can be.
Tier 1. 60Hz Casual gaming mid to high settings.
Eye candy is more the goal here than fps.
Tier 2. 120/144Hz gaming - mid to high settings.
Tier 3 120/144Hz gaming – Ultra settings.
Tier 4 240/360Hz gaming – Ultra 1080p system.


And the same for 1440p and 4k. although 4K might not be that many tiers.
 

This way it is not have mush can you get for your savings, but what do you need to spend on the resolution and fps you would like to play at, and what parts will give you what you are looking for, for the cheapest amount of money. 
And please also add a screen in the guide no matter what way you do it, that really helps, like you did in the Cheat vs. Expensive Gaming!? Video from 25-jul-2019

Bonus setups can be a mom/dad PC. A pc. With no dedicated GPU. Good speed and snappiness in the daily use/web browsing.
Or tiers of office PC’et, I know it is not gaming but might be a new “series”.

Right so you know how Luke a while back tried the Pizza PC? Well what about cooking a steak with your PC?

Basically I was looking at trying to put together a 12v sous vide setup in a campervan so food could cook whilst we drive, and stumbled on to the idea of if I could use watercooling parts for circulating the water, then I remembered Intel's new 12v only standard and started wondering... could I use a cpu to heat a large enough body of water suitable for sous vide cooking? Sous vide doesn't actually need to boil water, you'll normally cook a steak for example with sous vide at around 60deg, and all you need to do is maintain that temp once you've hit it, in theory with a bit of patience, and some insulated pipes and water bath to prevent excessive temperature loss, it might be possible! The tricky bit potentially would be finding a bit of software that could read the cpu the temps and dynamically increase or decrease load on the cpu on the fly to maintain a steady temperature.

I know Linus was talking about building a PC that ran straight off the cars 12v supply, so in actual fact this would lead in beautifully as well as not only could you have the PC in the car, but it could cook your dinner too!

Sketchy coolers proposal: A standard AIO cooler or watercooling loop but filled with Galinstan (eutectic, nontoxic liquid metal, basically Conductonaut) instead of water. I believe that would be interesting.

Give its viscosity and surface tension, as reported on Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galinstan), one would expect it to actually move very little, beyond a short distance from the pump...

I agree--I've applied liquid metal before and it's very frustrating. However, I think it would make a great video if they find a way to overcome viscosity issues (maybe designing their own, larger centrifugal pump?).

I have no idea what I'm doing and no one can stop me.

I was taking apart an old 2009 macbook yesterday (mostly because I can't afford to build a new computer) and pulled out the magsafe module. I though that maybe someone could make a video out of adding magsafe to a new USBc computer. And who better than LMG. So if you want to consider doing a video just contact me over email or something.
