I would love to see a comparison of Apple's thermal paste to regular thermal paste or perhaps one of the hunks of aluminum from the DIY heatsink video. I've tried reaching out to the team. I am an AASP tech and can get some.

So LTT has been pretty good at calling out BS. On top of that, LTT also has made several organized opinion pieces that show they truly care for the industry. One thing that we have not seen in all these years is the problems PC users face when trying to stream. Many times adaptive resolution technology wont support things like 1440p which is not good. Some streaming services wont allow 4k streaming on PC (Disney + is the one that I am seeing right now). Especially since old edge is gone, we are stuck with this. I think LTT should look into this, call out the losers that do this and show ways to bypass (this is LTT, I do expect more than the standard, oh use your phone or console, I expect real solutions). 

Also I am new to these forums so HI.

I think many users can be helped by this. Maybe also a tutorial on how to get old edge on windows again?

Linus Tech Tips

I don't know for sure but I think in one of your last Videos you said that a Video is comming up where you are showing what you need for Music Production. I thought you could make a Series out of this, with others subjects like what you need for Video editing, Photo editing..... and maybe even show whole set ups and show what the LMG staff is using for this tasks.

I'm seriously thinking about getting one in the next year or so.  If not, maybe LTT should review one!

 

If someone has, please give me an honest review of it.

Jazza and his crew are getting a new studio with new serverroom. He is a great contend creator, but you probably already know him.

If not: https://youtube.com/c/Jazza

 

Please do a colab with him on a server and studio networking.

 

I know he is on the other side of the world. But i think it could be a really awesome video, with your and his skillsets combined.

 

@Community

Please show your support on this

Even assuming they did, it's not like they could meet due to Covid, it would be over Teams/Zoom/Discord. Not the greatest content for viewers.

These kind of things don't just happen right away. There's planning to be done. Which can take weeks. Considering Jazza already finished their studio, I wouldn't be surprised if they are already setting it up, it's too late for LMG to provide their expertise or to collab on it.

Obviosly, they can not meet.

I do not think it is too late, since Jazza studio has a setup, they‘ll probably use for the time being.

As we have seen with corridor a collab without being able to meet, is possible and worth watching. And Jazza is making most his collabs without meeting.


So lets not judge if it is possible or not.

It is more about would you like to see it or not 🤷‍♂️

It would be nice to see a 2021 value gaming. It would be very helpful, especially for the time we are in now

Linus Tech Tips

Hello there,

 

paulo here! My suggestion is building a guide for home pfsense routers to wan aggregation. Many parts of the World, the internet at high speeds could be too expensive. So using home pfsense routers people can go to gig speed aggregating  4x 300m broadbands link, for example

 

Thanks; stay safe!

Been a LONG time since I Built a rig, Techs changed a bit since the last one I made and With money being tight been contemplating buying a pre-build gamer.

 

My idea for a video is seeing if there's a difference between buying a pre-build from places like Walmart compared to stores like BestBuy or even "Rent to Own" places? Seems Walmart and BestBuy carry very similar products at very different prices (for example a Samsung TV at BestBuy $2300 and at Walmart $1700, with exact same features, almost same model numbers. Just cheaper internals.) wonder if the same for HP Omen or some other Name brand PC manufactures that deal with multiple retailers.

Glenn from Spectre Sound Studios said he would love to collaborate. I could not find the LTT video that is mentioned in the very beginning of his video, but would love to see Glenn and Linus do something together 😄

Having a case that is used for 1 PC, but trying to get 2 PC systems into 1 decently big case like ATX. Or if there is any cases that could support that.

I believe that has already been done, just with a case that supports ATX and MATX and it had two mounting points. Therefore, two systems. 
EDIT: this is video 

 

1990 M3s are the best looking things ever made. 
Don't ask to ask. 
If you want me to see the reply, @XGoodGuyFitz(aka me) and/or quote me.

I used to lap swim as my primary form of exercise. I quit partially because I didn't have the means to listen to my sweet beats in the process.

 

Not sure if James is a swimmer but I've greatly enjoyed his headphone reviews. A "It's James, but this time, UNDERWATER" feature would be hilarious and informative.

Another suggestion, Building a Budget Game rig, does RGB have an impact on cost, do manufactures have products with and without RGB? how much can you save building a non RGB game rig?

I've wanted to start streaming for a while but I'm not sure what kind of equipment I would need for a dedicated encoding computer.  Could you make a video outlining the minimum requirements for a dedicated encoding/streaming computer with a 1080p 60hz capture card?

Suggestion: Counter rotation push/pull fans. 

 

I stumbled across an old LTT video, from the days of unboxing things outside on a bench, where Linus shows a server fan featuring dual, counter rotating blades to improve static pressure and overall performance in a single housing. This made me wonder if applying the same concept to push/pull fan configurations for radiators would make any difference. So the push fan would be a normal fan, but the pull fan would counter rotate against the push fan. Would be interesting to see if this made any difference.

 

Youtube video in question: 

 

 

Also, reminds me of the Ka-50 from playing Arma II
