    Just as a clarification, the people who pirated LTT videos had never gained any benefits from uploading them. Most of the people are LTT fans who are passionate about promoting LTT on Chinese medias. Also, Bilibili has very strict protocols of how video uploaders should verify those video as "not original" and they should also state the URL of origin in the description. Yet, it is so happy to see Linus gave them approval to translate those video officially so more Chinese users could have the opportunities to know this great channel. Fantastic job Linus and wish you guys all the best luck in the new year!

    • Kuaidian Gao
      Kuaidian Gao 8 months ago +301

      In the bilibili platform, if the video uploaded by the user is actively marked as "reprinted", then the user will not receive any revenue. This is probably a special product of China's special network environment.

    Wow my triple monitor solution been the first to shown in the video! So glad Linus likes it.
    In fact, apart from the LCD panel itself, its driver boards, wires, and those metal hinges, everything else is made of carbon fiber. It's actually not very wise choice, because it's just too expensive to buy and cut so much carbon fiber.
    By using so much carbon fiber, I think it's even bulletproof in a way when its folded. (When folded, the total carbon fiber thickness is about 7.5mm)

      I'd assume so,
      Like with Garage54 I can't speak siberia language so I just watch their Clip-Share videos in English dubbing
      Having someone around to make stuff more available is luxury
      //Inb4 someone tries to derail the talk about *availability itself being a luxury* by thinking they're contributing
      //yaaay it happened anyways! --I can always resort to calling it 'gibberish' or 'funny-poot-man-noises' to make the comment even LESS formal. Oooo! Or changing the channel name to some other obscure channel whose users have insanely polarized viewpoints on what their local dialect should be called so you can never choose a 'correct' correction. That would be fun! , but let's face it: The point(being: getting lucky and having channels around to make stuff available in other regions) would still fly over your heads 🤭 y'all got some severe nervous hangups to be hyperfocusing on that one thing in specific

    Basically,these ideas comes from a community called "图拉丁吧" in Baidu Tieba,which means "Tualatin Bar". It's a place of using cheap hardware to build PCs. Because of they use they budget buying faster hardware so they try to cut the price of other part for their PC,like using paper case or plastic bottle as case. It's also a amazing place to talking about modding hardware like P106 mining card or QL2X modified laptop CPUs.

    That multi-water cooling loop setup is the same way that the International Space Station regulates temperature. They have an internal water cooling loop running a heat exchanger to a sub-zero capable fluid that runs to radiators outside the station. The fact that that guy is running functionally the same principled setup as the freaking space station is wild.

    As an asian person, I stand by Andy and the monitor light, its actually beneficial when you have your room lights turned off but you dont want to strain your eyes on the monitor screen, the light bar helps in that regard, because many of us use computers with the room lights off at night cuz example, you dont want to annoy your roommate in a dorm room, or your parents complaining why is the light still on at 1am or so on.
    Edit: yes exactly like a modern desk lamp that doesnt take space on the desk. This was the example i was thinking of haha, sorry it was late.

    • xrailgun
      xrailgun 8 months ago +27

      No, get the LEDs that cast light behind the monitor onto the wall for that purpose.

    • Jason Kojro-Badziak
      Jason Kojro-Badziak 8 months ago +19

      @xrailgun that doesn't help if you need to light something on the desk. light behind the monitor would have to be so much brighter to be useful in front of the monitor.

    • ShEsHy0
      ShEsHy0 8 months ago +40

      I don't get the hate for those monitor lights, they're basically the modern version of the desk lamp, with the added benefit that they don't take up extra space, they don't get in the way, and they evenly light up the area *in front* of the monitor, which is exactly where one needs light the most. They don't light up the screen itself, but rather the keyboard and mouse, or whatever you put in front of it.

    This reminds me so much of a friends laptop. It was dying and the fans just couldn't keep it cool any more regardless of re-paste.
    He engineered four massive CPU coolers for both GPU and CPU and built it into a stilt "oil rig" style setup. The PC was incredibly cool after that.
    He also cut hole in the casing of the PS4 and mounted a massive desktop cooler to that too. Dead silent PS4. Love it.

  • Matheus Pratta
    Matheus Pratta 8 months ago +1

    The laptop with water-cooling is quite neat, I've seen one very similar to it selling here in Brazil and basically it has two pipes in the back where you can connect the radiator, OR you can just use the built-in fans for less demanding stuff. It's still quite a pain to plug and unplug stuff though...

    I'd be curious what the heating power would be of that stove PC. Like could you keep a pot of tea warm on it? Now I wanna see an extreme version of it which is designed to transfer the most heat from a PC to a teapot/other hot beverage warmer! Could even make it a challenge video, where you have two people make a teapot PC and then have to race to see which of them can brew a pot of tea the fastest (as in then having to play games targetted to generate as much heat as possible, and then have that heat moved the most efficiently to the teapot)

    21:50 those are Itanium submodules. They look like they might be from an HP Integrity RX2800 i4 server (altough the heatsinks in these were nickel plated, I've never seen them in bare copper).
    The whole assembly integrated the CPU, VRMs and heatsink into one unit that could be quickly replacable (HP Integrity servers were aimed at high availability, 99.999 %).
    22:00 that looks like a testing/qualification board or something like that for Sandy Bridge Xeons. It has two different sockets on it, LGA 1356 on top (Sandy Bridge-EN) and LGA 2011 (Sandy Bridge-EP) on bottom. The EN had three channel memory, and the EP had four channel memory.

    laughed a few times here, I especially like the chines watercooling techniques :)
    15:40 The watercooler setup for my laptop is also fairly big. Yes desktop- components would be more powerful and not as " janky", and also I only want one machine for home and travel. But I actually have good industrial quick disconnects on the laptop because my work requires alot of travel and hotel stays. I can still use it in " air- mode" without the water cooler because my waterblocks are set on top the stock heatpipes for the CPu and GPU :)

    Keep in mind, VGA was still pretty new then and 640 x 350 wasn't uncommon in commercially sold displays (640 x 480 was starting to get popular but the price was still high for most users).

    I even clipped the power cable to the LCD panel and put MOLEX on the end of it, so it powers up with my PC.
    The panel was being driven by a Raspberry Pi 3b, which I just connected to the monitor's control board, which I mounted to the inside of the side panel aas well.

    I had an older tower that the CU got pretty hot on, but noticed that the case had a little grille DIRECTLY over where the CPU was, so I super-gluded a tin-can to the CPU fan (Basic AMD cooler) and created a duct straight from the outside

    • riothero313
      riothero313 8 months ago

      I'm actually in the process of making something similar. I saw how my power supplies always take air in and shoot it right back out leaving only radiant heat inside. I wondered why the cpu should be any different? I'm making a duct that grabs air from out back, it goes through the cpu cooler and then straight up and out. It will isolate that heat completely from everything else. I'm going to line it with the same gold foil I used on my car's turbo setup. Will it help? who knows. It's something to do though lol.

    Linus Media Group did what the entire Japanese animation industry couldn't - end the potential problems of fansubs by officially paying the fansubbers to keep doing what they are doing, instead of trying to sue them or pretending they didn't exist.
    Also pretty sure the keyboardless laptop with big CPU cooler at 24:05 is Japanese - that's a classic Japanese swivelling plug, note the katakana "ACアダプタ" on the AC adaptor and Japanese on the tissue boxes, and I'm pretty sure the apartment is a Leopalace (big Japanese apartment leasing company that is pretty foreigner-friendly) - I have lived in four of them and the wallpaper, flooring and stupid unnecesary frosted and wired glass window is very familiar. Maybe a Chinese person living/staying in Japan? Disqualified or no?
    Those lights are designed to not shine on the screen, by the way - think of it as a very wide spotlight. I don't have one but I did consider it - went with LEDS on the back of one monitor and a clip spot pointed at the desk on the back of the other, neither of which is visible from the front.
