    AMD’s the way for budget, AND the high end. AND they’re a big competitor in the gpu race. Who knows, they might end up making ram sticks, ssds, and might as well start making entire prebuilts.

    been working as "assembler" in the backstore of a PC shop for 8 months, been paid ~150$/mo for it... had to make a config build in front with the customer, go to back and assemble it on the spot. My personal record is 4 mins, 17s / build, unboxing, assembling, repacking to case box and printing out the final invoice once it started in BIOS. the story and component details are on topic, but could signifficantly speed up the assembly by just doing it horizontally and using a magnetic tipped screwdriver, then just lift it up for last parts, like adding the PSU and cabling it... idk who came up with this stupid rule to assemble it vertically but it's just a pain... screws fall down, need to hold mobo in place while pushing againts I/O board, screw in....use gravity in your advantage ppl...

    I think this year has been pretty hard on linus. It seemed like at the beginning of quarantine he posted the “I’m retiring video” but ever since covid started he’s had to CARRY the videos. I don’t see nearly as much of Alex and The minecraft server dude. And it looks like he’s loosing the boundaries of what his life is and his identity online. His wan shows getting diverted off topics, and he brings up ncix and his stories more. If you see this linus I hope you’re doing well and know that we the audience would rather you be happy and find some peace than burning yourself out and losing the time you could be spending with your family.

    In this video you take a 3100, which you momentarily confuse for a 3000G, and add a wraith spire to it with no further comment other than that AMD includes good stock coolers. The problem is that the spire is not the stock cooler of the 3100, the stealth is. That is not an insignificant difference. Also, you refer to the 400W N1 as not being part of a series when it is part of the N1 series, apparently looking at the part number was too much to ask. That's not a little thing either, those are two massive honking extremely strange things for a professional tech reviewer to get wrong.
