Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

Apparently you can add thunderbolt PCIE cards to X570/B550 motherboards that don't have the thunderbolt header on the motherboard by shorting pins on the connector. If this truly works it would be a really nice way to add thunderbolt connectivity to AMD builds. 

maybe so, still different specs and not sure about communication between the standards. Unless you have an adapter maybe?

From my understanding, the thunderbolt header on the motherboard basically acts as hardware key. The thunderbolt cards are connected with a PCIE port and a usb 2.0 connector. What I don’t know is if the connector adds more usb bandwidth or not. Without the connector you might just get a thunderbolt connection at USB 2.0 speeds.

hi, im ben, im from south america and i really love your videos and 

 

I had the opportunity and luck to learn English like my second language but many Spanish speaking people did not have to change to learn English

 

So my idea is that if you or other team translate some of the videos or channels, i know many of them are produced, but this would be a great opportunity to increase viewers

 

and if you like the idea pls talk to me im a young boy (20y) who is a little lost with studies but has great dreams

Now that the series x minifridge is going to be a real thing, you guys should get one and try to put a PC in it.

Cooling should be pretty good, the case would be literally designed to keep things cold, and you could title it "we ran windows on a series x"

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

My beautiful, but not that powerful, main PC:

Putting a PC in a fridge isn't a good idea. The compressors aren't designed to continuously cool hot things. They're meant to just maintain a cold temperature and only switch on when needed.


LTT's already done a video on putting a PC in a fridge.

G'day Linus,

I've had an amazing idea for a video. What if you built an underground gaming centre, or a "gaming bunker." You could do a charity event where you stayed 24 hours in the gaming bunker and you could show off all of the fantastic gadgets you constantly fascinate us with. You could also play computer games and run benchmarks to see which computer is the best. All while raising money for charity.

Cheers,

Richard

Test each OS, google, apple, windows and maybe more? (that are sort of user friendly).

To test, manage files/library, settings for network, screen, audio, native programs that are more or less specific to that OS, like documents, pictures etc, how easy to use and compatability? While more production apps, if they have it, how good is it and if it's worth using.

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

Why don't you make a video where you get a store bought laptop and compare it's price, cooling, etc. with a laptop which was made with second hand parts found on eBay.

Hi

New Video Idea : Weird Graphic Card's technology in history and how they compare now :

 

Remember when SLI was a thing? Remember when cards had 2 chips on them? How about 3DFX now?

I'm also a pc hoarder and I'm willing to send you this (i need the space) :

Asus GTX 780

Zotac GTX 590 (Dual GTX580)

Asus 8800 GTX

Thank You

 

Olivier

Always wondered if you can get an older xeon(s) chip and over work it to actually cook on it. Show off how the new coolers/aio work so much better.

Would be a funny stupid video showing how cooling has advanced, and you won't ruin new useable conponents.

I attended an Canadian conference today on quantum computing and was excited to learn that Canada has a few horses in the quantum computing race. Xanadu, Anyon and D-Wave (who is in Burnaby wink wink) have exciting new computing technologies. It may be more of an As quick as possible video but I'd like to hear Anthony explain quantum computing and the new advances they pose. Though these will never be a replacement for your RGB gaming rig, they are cool new technologies that is being pushed and funded by Canada.

I know it's been done to Hell already but can you please review the windows 11 leak and more importantly the operating system that was within that leak, I am Ultra curious about the backwards compatibility aspect with the new graphical elements and how they are placed. I don't think that some older applications such as plants vs zombies and portal (older titles) will work with this operating system, I am very concerned as I don't have all the achievements in either of those games. also defult configs are annoying for WoR.

I immagine that after release it won't be 'just a skin' and that we might have the whole vista thing happen again.

I have a really old xeon chip on my computer and honestly it isnt that bad.

I just want to see how colorful would the pc be and if it looked like 6six9nie's hair or like a rainbow

Isn't it LGBTQ+ pride month?

I have 2 ideas

1. Building a PC out of any colours but black and white

2. Use a laptop graphics card in desktop PC

Video idea: WaterWARMED NAS

 

It's general knowledge that cooling your nvme drive too much can actually hurt performance. How about create a NAS system with a large amount of these drives (6-10) with a waterloop that is temperature conditioned to 35c , to keep all of the drives in an ideal operating temperature! 
A decent sized reservoir and a small aquarium heater would achieve this pretty easily.

 

Instead of watercooling, it's waterwarming or waterconditioning 

Looking forward to it 😉

I’ve created an account just so I can post in this thread. It’d be nice for Linus to test bench a few PCs in a walk in fridge or freezer. Maybe the compressor used in the walk ins will be able to handle the constant heat load. It’d be a good follow on from the fridge they used in a previous video imo🙂

You are right they don't normally get to hot, it was more along the lines to use some older equipment to avoid the kick back from people saying they ruined a good CPU. Also if you are going to break something, it might be better to break something past its prime and cheap rather than good and useful.

 

So like a xeon from the 5100 series or something.
