    My brothers house burnt in a fire, in the least expected of places, Canada but even all the snow wont prevent a drunk neighbor from setting his house on fire... Guess what part of the my brothers house got most affected? His "Man Cave" where his gaming rig was set... Sadly everything was basically unrecoverable.. It wasnt anything crazy but it was his rig... He hasnt been able to play for 4 months now.. As he had to move to a temporary house and buying a new rig isnt really a priority... So I know how much this meant for this dude... Amazing stuff as always on LTT...

The 1700 who dislike this video are a bunch of heartless lameass Demogorgons. Thanks again Linus, great video and thanks to Craft Computing as well.

    I once lost a rig due to a roof leak. Luck was not with me that day. We had a major storm while I was out of town, and developed a new leak, and at this time, I ha a rig pretty much completely of cheap, second hand parts sitting on the desk, with the monitor beside it. Can you guess where the new leak was dripping? Yeah, not a lot made it into the case, but it was enough to take out the PSU in short fashion, and took the board with it. I didn't notice until I went to use it a few days later. It had mostly dried by then, but after wondering why it wouldn't turn on, I looked up at the ceiling, saw the signature spots on the ceiling that you get with leaks in old tile houses, and I lost it. Was a cheap rig, but it was what I could afford then. Sad day for sure.
