    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.

    The 5770 surprisingly can still play games not dx 12 but i was using that exact card not long ago and can say it can play fortnight decently. 2009 and it can still play that's an achievement in my book.

    I purchase 4 RX 580s from a miner 2 years ago for $350. They needed a bit of a dusting and new thermal compound but otherwise were like new and even in original boxes with all accessories, etc. I ended up auctioning them on eBay recently and each individual card sold for over what I paid for all four of them...

    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.

  • xSKOOBSx

    Can you see the 360 side fans from the inside? imagine the EK FLT 360 installed in there.

  • Krydolph

    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 ISnets to follow along. Yeah, good luck finding a video that has the exact same parts as you.

    Yikes! His confusion around the PCIE cable power could easily lead to some house fires here... Rule of thumb, each 8-pin connector on a GPU should have its own dedicated cable. As has been noted here already, those connectors are meant to carry 150W. Most consumer guage cables will hold 200-250W on the overall PCIE cable itself. If the GPU "calls" for EACH PCIE connector to pull 150W from the PSU, you'll easily surpass what the cable can handle (250-300W). The PCIE slot itself is giving the card 75W. If you go ham on an AIB 3080/3090, you could easily have them calling for 400W+. Guess what, you just burnt out the cable, fried your PSU, or worse. Magic smoke people. The ONLY 30 series cards I'd feel comfortable daisy chaining off a PCIE cable are the 3060, 3060 Ti, and 3070. Dedicate cables with the 3080 and 3090!!!

    Linus, my suggestion is that your camera man, in this case, David, should also have a mic of his own so that we can hear the conversation better. In all videos, it seems like a very nice back and forth interaction between you and your camera man.
