My wife's computer won't wake from sleep properly. I've narrowed the issue down to ASUS' implementation of Thunderbolt 3 on their motherboards...but actually addressing the issue turned out to be a lot of work!

    This guy spends more time building than using the actual computer. Bad way to build it who else had an extra 2k motherboard laying around. That motherboard have a death button sad it’s build into it like ohh touch here it will died.

    y'all in the comments upset Linus called his kid "boy"- you understand it's because he doesn't want his kids' names all over the internet right? (this is not to the people making jokes, just the ones who are actually whining about it)

    Bigger funnel is exactly right. Small hands on a tall, opaque, wide mouth canister into a tiny funnel while still developing/honing coordination, and fine motor control.

  • user540000

    He could just VESA mount a NUC on the back of her monitor and be done with it but if he builds her a top of the line PC in a server case in a different room thats good for 3-4 videos of content.

    Do Linus let his children have a low spec PC so that they don't get blinded by the fact that not all PC users have the same capability of having the top-tier rig that their parents can have?

    hello? anybody still reading here? ok, if it hasn't been mentioned before, the board very likely isn't broken. it just has a rather overbearing leak detection integrated. that waterblock is connected with 2 plugs, find the pinout in the instruction manual and remove the connector from the plug / cut the pertaining wire for the leak detection and you're good to go...(that did help me...)

    "Good enough for a wifey pc" one of the shittiest and cringiest phrases you've said. What attitude are you approaching projects for your wife with? I want to give you the benefit of the doubt but she was expressing that she felt left out of the upgrades???

    Can I ask the obvious question? You spend many dollars on getting Thunderbolt to work, as the PC is so far from the display. Why not spend much less and simply build a neat little quiet one that goes right next to it?
