    Next time Linus should take a shot at trying this before they send the systems to the contestants. It would make the commentary pretty interesting for him to be able to talk about this problems he ran in to.

    To be honest I probably would have gutted the case and reassembled the PC from the beginning after seeing that that mess of cables fall out the side it would be alot faster than checking cables individually and any physical sabotage would be easily noticeable.

  51. István Szikra

    István SzikraMonth ago

    1:47:20 I think he had asked if DIMMS were disabled in the BIOS because he realized that RAM is not correct. So, I think he knows there is a problem, but I think he doesn't know that half the sticks are fake (I would also never pay money for those things, I'm not surprised if he doesn't know they exist at all), and he thinks it's a BIOS config problem.

  52. István Szikra

    István SzikraMonth ago

    27:00 Why are they using 2 different mixer/audio output for the stream and Linus? And who is monitoring the stream, or why no one is? Technical issues unfortunately happen... a lot, because PCs are built as consumer hardware and not NASA/military reliability and most SW is plagued with bugs :(

    BTW, no bios reset rule is so arbitrary, and stupid it kinda breaks my suspension of disbelief. If you have to enforce it, give a reason, like a custom xmp profile loaded that will be lost on reset and which will cost the competitor a few points during benchmark, perhaps make the amount the same as the bonus point for time you can get....

Meanwhile, I keep hearing the hardware connect and disconnect sound and I thought it was my steam controller connecting and reconnecting via Bluetooth... just realized it was this video this whole time ... 😅
