  • Near the end: Use USB stick to install, with just enough storage for the install package. It's then forced to a) Pick the SSD instead as an install target b) Forego the usage of the install stick as a place to put anything. Also, you may wanna use the lowest Sata port for an install drive, or leave anything else out when using an nVME SSD.

    • For really fast gaming for older games, 16GB ram with RamDrive.

    • Also by default using a raid for SSD is a nice way to both speed up for less, but also make better use of the mainboard resources (raid chip). The only exception to this is when the smaller SSD's are slower together than one faster one. That said, I use raid setups by default, since in most cases having two smaller ones is cheaper, while outspeeding the bigger and more expensive faster ones. It's like top speed for like 2TB or more drives, but they cost a bundle. Instead having two 250GB ones are just as fast or faster, while costing less total. If you wanna play another game, just download while grabbing coffee, mine take about 15 minutes, which is barely enough to have a nice 'throne' sitting. I actually use 2x 80 GB's for gaming, which cost me less than $50

  • My local Memory Express surprised me with a GTX 3060 When I went in to buy all the other parts for my PC a week ago. Bought myself an entirely new Rig aside from the case, I was planning onwaiting for my GPU until they became abailable. They said they could see I wasn't scalping or mining so talked with one of their managers and hooked me right up. Preorder and stock is not available whatsoever so it was really nice to see them willing to help me out. They are available, shop local!!!! This experience changed my perception of the local computer supply industry. Shopping online is great but amazon and Newegg would never be able to pull strings like this. Best part is that I bought my Asus TUF RTX 3060 at MSRP with no markup.

  • really want rtx but 10 series is the best i can find . i am loving my n1660 oc i brought new. evan that was hard to find i am from uk. i tryed and paid for four other graffix cards, ie rx 580/ rtx2060 super/ gtx 1080/ gtx 1060 and got my money back arfter waiting a month every time. its so rough i been a fan ov your show and others like it. for a few years now i am building my 3rd pc for my wife, and hope the mining crisis changes soon. what you guys do is so cool and brings hope to a new builder like my self.

  • installing a vertical GPU kit in a case that supports vertical GPU already... although having it pushed back more won't choke it as much, as the side panel will definitely be close enough to the fans to restrict airflow if used in the "first-party" mount. I would be on board, but you could just use the stock mount and not have to cut. Just don't use the second mounting screw. But you could also probably get the cables plugged in without cutting anything. Just feed it between the slats.

  • If you mount vertical with the build in slots in the case, the GPU fans will be all the way up to the glass side, and it will suffocate and get a lot hotter. With the cablemod approach it is pulled back so it can still breathe! And even though you, and a few others DO use PCI-E slots for more than just the GPU, I would claim that at least 90% people never does, and I would guess that was a low figure compared to reality!

  • 1:28:30 Longterm coolant testing. Already done it myself. No, you don't want to run straight distilled water. I have a D5 pump turning 18 years old this year. It once went 9 years on the same coolant, with the only change being occasionally topping it up every ~8 months due to sublimation losses. The coolant being Valvoline Zerex + distilled water at a 5/95 ratio. DO NOT USE GARBAGE PRE-MIX COOLANTS FROM EK/Koolance or ANY PC water cooling brand. They're all JUNK, filled with unnecessary amounts of anti-corrosives which act like abrasives on ceramic pump bearings if you don't religiously change them out every 6 months. Use tried and tested automotive coolants only, they have decades of development and they WILL prolong pump life vs plain distilled water. Use automotive coolants, and you can go for years between coolant changes.

  • LINUS LINUS LINUS here is a TECH TIPS for you : Windows is installing the boot sector and the boot partition, on the drive selected in the bios as the first boot drive (and often the only boot drive, depending of your bios config) So if YOU choose another disk to install windows than your boot drive selected in the bios, then microsoft properly setup your system, so it will reboot properly during the installation. And you end up with your boot information on a different drive than you system, because YOU choose to install your system not on the drive selected has boot in the bios. So in the end this again a PBCAC issue.

  • The more I listen to Linus talk about the pci power cable the more I die inside. The lowest spec of either the cable or single end should be the max. The power supply has a 150W connector then you should only push 150W to the other end. You can either split the 150W between the two connectors on the other end or if the GPU needs over 150W between them you need to install 2 different cables.

  • I’ve given up. Pc building is too hard. I’m not talking about the actual building. But even buying different parts. So many gpu’s and CPU’s and motherboards and what not. Different brands selling the same shit. Numbers and words that no one can explain. What does ti mean? Watch 14 minute video where I learn it’s short for titanium. Ok. So is that better or worse than super? Numbers are confusing. 1660 is bigger number than 1080. Learn 1080 is better…Am I supposed to google every single gpu and CPU’s? There are thousands of them. Then there’s compatibility issues and bottlenecks. Buying from different countries. Will a gpu from a different country work with local psu. I don’t know. All I got was “maybe”. Then there’s quads, vrams, vrms that’s impossible to tell how many there are but are important. None of that is in the minimum requirements section of video games. They just say buy three 3 things. This gpu, that size ram, and this here cpu. Pcpartspicker is no help. I tried a combination and something about bios came up. Google it and got an answer even more complex. I think I need 2nd gen or something. What if I don’t have one? Oh, and the stupid lights that I still haven’t got answer as to how to shut off or if I can not have them. And mix messages from pc gamers. One says “You don’t need expensive powerful hardware for vr!”. Another says “You need a powerful hardware for FPS!”. And the building itself? You can use HUlabel to follow along. Yeah, good luck finding a video that has the exact same parts as you.
