Linus: Okay sorry, what is this called ?
0:01
Scotty: “Huaqiangbei”
0:02
*laughs*
0:03
Linus: fantastic, alright so i’m here at
0:07
Scotty: “Huaqiangbei”
0:08
Linus: yeah perfect thank you, with Scotty
0:10
From ‘Strange Parts’, so I’m “getting me some strange parts”
0:15
In China
0:16
Which is actually exactly what we’re doing
0:19
So, in this, like, gigantic tech mall-thing
0:22
They have everything from components like switches
0:25
To..
0:26
Computer parts, to drones, to cryptocurrency-crap
0:30
Mobile phones..
0:30
Pretty much you name it, they got it here.
0:33
So I don’t really have any objective, other than go shopping and see exactly what it is
0:38
That I can buy with my little stack of ‘Canadian Rubles’ here.
0:42
So, uhh.. Wish me luck.
0:44
And hopefully that’s not for me.
0:45
Scotty: No, I think we’re good. [chuckles]
0:47
[Intro music: Laszlo – Supernova]
0:53
Linus: This video is brought to you by Corsair’s Obsidian 500D
0:57
It’s a mid-tower gaming case, featuring: Premium tempered glass an aluminium construction
1:01
Removable top fan trays and more!
1:03
Check it out at the link below.
1:05
Scotty: I think this is going to be an uphill battle,
1:07
To get them to even recognize what those are, let alone know the value of them.
1:09
Linus: They are gonna be like “what is this $H!T?!”
1:13
Yeah, no, it’s okay; there’s an ATM.
1:15
This is the world’s most helpful error message: “Transaction is cancelled for some reason”
1:20
“Operation Timeout” “Thank you!”
1:22
Okay..
1:28
So like this is the kind of stuff that I wish we had a shop like this.
1:32
We were trying to do a piece a little while ago
1:34
Where we wanted lit.. Uhh..
1:37
Buttons! Or like.. Like.. Big fun buttons we could press
1:40
And if we could have just walked into a mall and bought them
1:43
That would have made my Christmas.
1:44
Scotty: The cool thing about here, particularly for buttons, is you can actually come in and touch them, right.
1:47
So, like, the button-feel is super important
1:50
Linus: Oh my god, I already found something I need.
1:52
Entire bags of like, motherboard standoffs.
1:56
I was trying to buy just a bag of computer screws
1:59
Only place I could find for it was eBay
2:02
Pricing was just totally unreasonable.
2:04
Scotty: Yeah and it will be very reasonable here.
2:06
Linus: Smartwatches, totally 100% real Beats.
2:09
Scotty: These are probably, like, semi-real
2:12
Linus: Semi-real?
2:13
Scotty: Yeah, like refurb-ed type.
2:15
Linus: Right, okay.
2:17
Wow. This place is enormous.
2:19
Scotty: It’s crazy, right? This is probably one of twenty buildings
2:22
Linus: Honestly, it’s overwhelming.
2:24
Scotty: Yeah.
2:25
Linus: Okay, so here’s stuff I mostly recognize.
2:28
Scotty: “Right!”
2:29
Linus: There’s like
2:30
A bunch of mining gear..
2:32
Like Antminers and.. What else do they got?
2:35
Mining Power supplies
2:40
ROG.. Something something
2:42
Looks like
2:44
Very similar SKU’s
2:51
Linus: I’m just looking.
2:53
Linus: just looking
2:57
Linus: Uhh..
2:57
Linus: No, I don’t.. Necessarily wanna get lead in here.
3:01
Linus: Hi! Nah, I’m just looking around, it’s okay.
3:03
Linus: Thank you.
3:04
[Sad Music]
3:07
I mean this is the kind of thing you would never find in a retail store back home
3:10
This is like, dual socket, like server boards and stuff like that.
3:14
Can you ask how much this 1800W power supply is
3:17
[Chinese]
3:21
Scotty: That’s like.. 50 bucks
3:23
Linus: 50 bucks?!
3:24
50 dollars for an 1800W power supply?
3:26
Scotty: yeah.
3:27
Linus: Doesn’t feel like an 1800W power supply, oh my god.
3:30
This is actually only rated for 1600W
3:32
Also, this is an mining only power supply, so it only does 12V.
3:37
This is just all mining $H!T
3:38
Scotty: they did not used to be this way.
3:39
Linus: Look at this! These are mining specific cards right here.
3:41
These ones without coolers
3:43
And uhh..
3:44
They actually do have a video output, but like just the one.
3:47
Scotty: Wooow, look at this stuff.
3:50
Linus: Yeah, so they got things like, uhh, these mining specific boards
3:53
Scotty: and this is used.
3:54
Linus: “Asus demo board..”
3:57
Here’s a brand of motherboards that I have certainly never heard of
4:01
Sometimes it’s just fascinating.
4:02
Like you walk up to a booth and kinda go:
4:05
What are you doing , You know
4:07
Like if you really need the B250M-HD3
4:10
or a WD Green SSD
4:12
Or a Byson fan, then you’re good.
4:15
Scotty: This is indicative of the markets which is just like high degree of specializations in booths.
4:19
But it’s also just like, a different way of doing business,
4:22
There is just not a lot like vertical integration.
4:24
It’s “everybody does their own little thing” and has friends that do the other bits.
4:28
Linus: fundamental problem for PC stuff is that, umm,
4:31
Scotty: What’s this?
4:32
Linus: Pricing across regions has really leveled out
4:34
Scotty: yeah.
4:35
Linus: Uhhm..
4:37
That’s a wonderful question, I am not actually sure what this is.
4:41
Doesn’t seem to be in any sort of hurry to tell us..
4:43
Scotty: “DTMF”? Is this uhh.. Telephone gear?
4:47
Linus: I mean they still have LGA 775 motherboards here, like brand new.
4:52
That’s incredible
4:55
Oh wow, okay. I can’t even like focus my eyes on this
4:58
Scotty: At one point she was burning paper with one of these, so just be..
5:01
Careful.
5:02
Oh, oh, it’s this one.
5:04
Linus: How much is that one?
5:05
Scotty: This one?
5:06
Linus: Yeah.
5:06
Scotty: We’ll ask here.
5:07
Oh, here we go.
5:09
Linus: Oh my god.
5:11
Scotty: watch the reflections on the glass
5:14
Linus: I think my kids would end up going blind if they found it.
5:16
Scotty: Yes. Yes, that’s true.
5:17
Linus: Yeah, I’ll pass, I’ll pass on this
5:20
[Chinese]
5:21
Linus: I’m getting a 3 dollar discount now..
5:24
Yeah, I’m okay. I’m okay.
5:27
If I decide I get one, I’ll come back.
5:29
Scotty: my reccomendation is that if you think you want something, you should just buy it while you’re there.
5:33
Linus: Oh, okay.
5:35
So what I figured out at this point is..
5:38
I definitely need some kind of objective
5:40
Because, you could wander around here for weeks and..
5:44
Still have no idea where the hell you are and what the hell you’re doing
5:47
Scotty: And I have!
5:47
I have..
5:48
So yeah, if you have something specific you wanna do.
5:50
I’m happy to try and make that happen
5:53
As best we can
5:55
Linus: okay.. I want the cheapest laptop in this entire mall.
5:59
Scotty: Cheapest laptop in the entire mall
6:02
Linus: yeah, lets do that. Lets see how usable it is.
6:06
Okay!
6:06
Scotty: I’m trying to think where we would go for that.. But yeah! Okay!
6:09
Lets maybe.. Jump buildings? As you have seen this one
6:12
To the other place that a lot of laptops and stuff.
6:14
Linus: Okay, sounds good.
6:15
It’s an unusual thing going into somewhere with the objective
6:18
To buy the worst thing that you can find.
6:22
I mean if they weren’t trying, I don’t know how they
6:24
Could have made two completely different buildings, full of completely different people and things
6:28
look so identical.
6:30
Scotty: once you start coming here more, it does actually
6:33
Like you do notice differences. There is a different mix of stuff here.
6:37
But it’s a different mix
6:39
Linus: It’s subtle.
6:40
Scotty: Laptops? He wants to buy cheap laptop.
6:46
Laptop.
6:49
Linus: Actually, Eric, can you jump in?
6:52
Okay, we want the cheapest possible laptop like in..
6:56
He’s my translator.
6:58
[Chinese]
7:06
Linus: so..One problem here, where..
7:10
The really nice guy from upstairs directed us
7:13
Is that, none of this is off-brand
7:16
This is like, Lenovo, Samsung, Asus, Dell..
7:20
This starts at 6000.. What, Yen?
7:24
Scotty: Uhh.. Renminbi
7:27
It’s about 6 to 1, so divide by 6.
7:29
Linus: So about a thousand dollars.
7:30
Okay, that’s about like
7:33
An [HP] Envy would start at back at home
7:35
Like I don’t think we’re gonna find anything that weird and/or cheap here
7:39
Tell you what, what do you edit your videos on?
7:42
Scotty: Final Cut or [Adobe] Premiere
7:43
Final Cut is my editor of choice,
7:46
But my editor uses [Adobe] Premiere
7:48
Linus: Here’s what we’re doing; we’re building an editing rig for Strange Parts’ editor.
7:54
Because.. When in doubt and I can’t figure out what to make a video about..
7:58
I just build a computer.
7:59
So F%#K it. Okay, let’s do it.
8:03
Lets go back to PC component land.
8:06
Scoty: Okay, go back upstairs here, maybe?
8:07
Linus: Sure.
8:08
Scotty: So my editor is in Mexico.
8:11
Scotty: It could be my editing rig.
8:13
Or my transcoding rig.
8:14
Linus: You know what, I don’t care what you do with it.
8:16
But your editor is gonna watch this video, so if you don’t send it to them
8:19
Then.. You know what that’s between you guys.
8:21
Scotty: It’s true, It’s true, I would have to sort that out.
8:23
Oh no, Linus has stars in his eyes
8:26
Linus: Oh my god..
8:27
Scotty: He’s looking devious
8:28
Linus: I think I’ve fallen in love.
8:31
It’s actually, like, the construction of it is not bad too.
8:34
Like, from a distance it looked like plastic garbage
8:37
But it’s actually aluminium garbage.
8:39
Scotty: It’s like proper, yeah.
8:41
So it’s exhaust going out either side with these like..
8:43
Baffles and than the whole thing is a big intake
8:47
Holy $H!T, is this thing like 300 dollars?
8:48
Scotty: 300 bucks, yeah.
8:49
Linus: Woooow!
8:51
How much is a Ferrari, ‘definitely real Ferrari’, power supply to go with it?
8:55
Dang..
8:56
Lets look around a little more.
8:58
I mean, we might find something else
9:00
But I don’t know if I could love anything more than that case.
9:03
Sorry hun!
9:04
I’m feeling good! We’re off to a..
9:06
Very good start here
9:07
Look at this stuff!
9:09
That is some ghetto-ass watercooling supplies
9:12
I don’t.. I don’t.. I don’t know how I can resist.
9:17
Linus: What?
9:19
Linus: Awww..
9:20
What’s the point of having something on display if you can’t sell it?
9:25
Linus: So.. That one and that one
9:31
Oh, wow!
9:32
That radiator weighs almost nothing
9:36
That is aluminium AF!
9:38
And I actually don’t even if this…
9:40
Oh, did you hear that, like, crack when I tried to put it on?
9:41
Okay, 15 bucks for this though… Not that bad.
9:44
Not that bad.
9:44
Okay, lets continue our quest.
9:46
Ah, thank you!
9:47
I don’t really see anything here that is jumping out at me.
9:50
As having sufficient RGB-ness
9:52
Okay, this! That is my kind of RGB
9:56
And looks a lot more… sensible in terms of pricing as well.
10:00
Yeah, I expected that.
10:03
Okay, that’s pretty cool.
10:05
It doesn’t actually have a microphone, that is totally cheating.
10:08
Scotty: Is that true?
10:10
[Snaps]
10:11
Linus: Yeah, that’s just cheating.
10:13
Scotty: so the question was like “Should we haggle over this?” right?
10:16
And so my rule of thumb is like; if I think it’s fair price,
10:19
then I don’t. Like I don’t push on it.
10:22
Um, most people in the market are not like marking up stuff up
10:25
Because it’s like wholesale, there’s just not the expectation
10:28
Typically buying that one that they are gonna gouge you.
10:30
Linus: I mean, the one thing I need to know is..
10:32
If I have anywhere to mount my radiator inside, so..
10:35
Uhm, Eric, can you ask him if I can take it down and open it up?
10:39
Okay, we should be in pretty good shape!
10:42
Okay, yep! I’m sold.
10:44
Looks good to me.
10:45
So, I know I said that you don’t screw around on the power supply and motherboard.
10:49
Scotty: Yeah.
10:50
Linus: I am definitely gonna be finding…
10:53
Brands that I don’t recognize, for both of them.
10:56
Scotty: Okay!
10:56
Linus: Because, We are gonna have… we’re gonna have the Chinese PC experience.
11:01
Wow, Colorful makes motherboard.
11:03
Scotty: Yeah.
11:04
Linus: That’s fun.. Uhh,
11:06
Okay.
11:07
So I wanna know how much for that one.
11:10
It’s a battleaxe, I don’t know what the brand is, I can’t read it.
11:14
But it says “Battleaxe” on it.
11:17
Yeah, the brown one at the bottom
11:19
There’s nothing on here that would indicate sorta what it is
11:22
But it does have USB 3.0…
11:24
Linus: Colorful?
11:25
Oh, it’s a Colorful board! Oh, okay..
11:27
Do you have.. Do you have anything… bigger?
11:30
Full ATX.
11:32
Here, we don’t we uhh.. Why don’t we just pick up a board here.
11:35
Lets just.. Lets just talk to our buddy here
11:37
Alright.
11:39
Do you have; motherboard, CPU, memory?
11:42
[Chinese]
11:43
Linus: Uhh, let me try that again. This!
11:46
What motherboards do you have?
11:49
Do you have anything.. Like, full sized? ATX?
11:53
More slots… Yeah.
11:55
What about memory?
11:57
Marketplace person: “Memory?”
11:58
Linus: Okay, so that’s an 8GB Kingston stick.
12:01
Wait, it’s a 100 bucks for 1 stick?
12:03
Okay, no.. Hold on.
12:06
Yeah.. I don’t think that’s very good pricing.
12:08
I think we can do better elsewhere.
12:10
We gotta start buying stuff or we’re gonna run out of time here.
12:13
Does.. Anyone here speak English..?
12:18
Linus: No, I think that one is okay.
12:21
So..
12:22
We’re reaching a deal on Ryzen chip and uhh..
12:25
A B350 motherboard
12:27
But, if I understand correctly;
12:31
He doesn’t have stock here, he’s just gonna go to one of the other stores and buy it,
12:34
So..
12:35
Scotty: Maybe, or there’s a storeroom in somewhere else.
12:38
That is pretty common too, there will be like another booth somewhere
12:41
That has the stock.
12:42
That’s less, like, this visible than this
12:44
Linus: I hate this, I want to go back to shopping online.
12:47
Fun fact: we’re paying more than the other guy quoted us.
12:50
But at this point I don’t care. Fine.
12:52
So here’s the situation:
12:54
We like have 20 minutes before this whole place closes down
12:57
We have like 2500 Renminbi [about 400 USD] left to get: a GPU, storage, a power supply and a cooler
13:03
Because clearly this tubing is not gonna do us any good.
13:07
I hate this.
13:09
This is not a great shopping experience that I’m having.
13:13
I’m stressed out.
13:15
Okay, so these guys have Galax 1060’s, lets find out how much
13:20
Eric: Sorry, which brand again?
13:21
Linus: Galax.
13:23
Linus: 2000.. [about 315 USD]
13:25
Scotty: Is he quoting 2000?
13:26
Linus: Yeah.
13:27
Scotty: Okay.. We’re gonna have a cash situation
13:31
Linus: Hold on a second, worst case scenario all we still need is
13:34
Storage and a power supply, because we can use the stock cooler.
13:37
Scotty: Okay.
13:38
Linus: [Chuckling] and then we can just throw this radiator in the back for lols
13:42
And I’m gonna need a screwdriver
13:43
Scotty: well the other options is to go find a repair booth and do like..
13:46
Like you and a Chinese guy putting this together, together.
13:49
Linus: Oh my god..
13:50
Scotty: So that’s an option.
13:51
Linus: 25.50.. [about 4 USD]
13:53
I think we’ll have to move on
13:56
*sighs*
13:57
Okay..
13:59
Lots of high end stuff here, 1080’s, 1080 Ti’s..
14:02
We don’t want that
14:04
I’m determined to get the rest of the stuff here.
14:07
So, here we go
14:08
We need SSD.. power supply..
14:11
Uhh, do you have um..
14:14
Do you have 1060?
14:15
Is that it?
14:16
Oh! Okay, so 2360? [about 370 USD]
14:19
That’s a little better.
14:20
In the background: not much..
14:21
Linus: and then..
14:23
I can’t even tell what the wattage of these things are.
14:26
600 Watt? Alright, so we’ll take this one
14:29
We’re definitely at least getting one product where I don’t recognize the brand at all.
14:33
I’ve never heard of ‘Netac’
14:35
Eric is trying to get us 60 Renminbi [about 10 USD] off
14:37
And he’s offering us 10 [1,50 USD] which is about two dollars. Two dollars discount.
14:40
Fine, I don’t care anymore. Okay, fine,
14:43
We got a two dollar discount man.
14:45
You know, like, 10 years from now I’m gonna..
14:48
I’m gonna have like.. Two dollars
14:50
And I’m gonna like desperately need it to take a bus somewhere
14:52
Eric: Yup!
14:53
Linus: and that’s gonna be all I have and I’m gonna be like
14:54
“Thank god Eric saved me that two dollars on that power supply, SSD”
14:59
Scotty: What’s the total over here?
15:02
Linus: Uhh…
15:03
It was.. 3.. 3050! [about 450 USD]
15:05
Can I owe you some money?
15:08
Linus: Okay.
15:08
Alright, do we need to go back and get our motherboard, CPU combo?
15:12
So we got a small problem. The escalator is caged up now.
15:16
This place is closing in like two minutes.
15:18
and we have to go down to the bottom floor to the ATM.
15:21
We may no be able to go back to the store…
15:23
Scotty: that is a potential problem..
15:24
Linus: so we might walk out of here with a case
15:26
Scotty: It would be kind of a dick move, we sat around the market all day..
15:30
I think we’ll make it work..
15:33
Alright, this is what we got? These three?
15:36
Oh and that one.
15:38
Okay.
15:39
So check everything.
15:41
Linus: Ryzen 7.. 1700..
15:44
Uhh, 2 DDR4.. 8GB sticks..
15:49
Yep! That’s uhh..
15:51
And then we’ve got a B350-Plus. Yep! Okay.
15:55
Alright, so you’re getting probably, hopefully..
15:57
a decent computer here.
15:59
Scotty: Cool!
16:00
Linus: I don’t know about that power supply
16:03
We checked the first couple to make sure they were real, you see.
16:05
Scotty: You know…
16:06
I mean, I’m surprised he’s not running it through a machine actually, cause..
16:09
Oh! He’s gonna run it through a machine now.
16:10
Like, yeah. It’s just a universal concern
16:13
it’s definitely not you.. Like..
16:14
Linus: Ah, okay!
16:16
Hopefully this last piece of the puzzle is really simple.
16:19
We just need.. A Phillips head screwdriver.
16:22
Scotty: I know where to get that, but it’s in a different building.
16:25
Linus: It’s in a different building?!
16:27
I mean, they must have a phillips screwdriver here.
16:29
Scotty: Lets walk around the bottom floor.
16:30
Linus: like if we go offer offer someone 50 Renminbi [about 8 USD] for their screwdriver..
16:33
Will they just give it to us?
16:34
Scotty: we can buy a shop’s screwdriver!
16:36
That would be an option.
16:38
This one right here?
16:40
Linus: yeah, sure.
16:43
Here
16:47
No.. No screwdriver..
16:49
Okay.
16:52
Should we just go to the other building?
16:55
Okay, fine. Lets just go where we know they’re gonna have it
16:58
Scotty: alright, lets go back to that big tools booth.
17:00
Linus: I think the odds of that case having all toolless mounts
17:03
Is very slim
17:04
Scotty: yup.
17:05
Linus: Oh, is that your tools store?
17:06
Scotty: this is the one, yeah.
17:07
Linus: they look kinda open
17:08
Scotty: they look very open.
17:09
Linus: Okay, if I’m gonna buy a screwdriver, might as well [inaudible]
17:13
Actually, don’t see that many options..
17:16
Where’s just
17:18
Scotty: Here’s small screwdrivers
17:19
Linus: the screwdriver, with an S. Y’know.
17:21
Lots of precision screwdrivers for working on phones, but we just want a normal like big screwdriver.
17:27
Scotty: Oh, here we go. Here.
17:28
Linus: Oh here we go, we walked right past screwdriver land on the way in.
17:31
Here’s a super long one, you know what? I could actually use one of these.
17:34
Okay, yeah. I’ll take this shank, I mean screwdriver.
17:38
Sorry, I’m like [flailing around screwdriver]
17:41
“You stay back!”
17:43
See this, they are both reversed now.
17:45
They are both going down
17:46
We caught it by like two minutes..
17:49
We were about to get kicked the F$#K out of this place.
17:52
So, Mr. …
17:55
“Can build an iPhone out of parts that he finds in Shenzen”,
17:59
when is the last time you build a computer?
18:01
Scotty: It’s been..
18:02
Fifteen years.
18:03
Linus: Fifteen years? Okay, so can you build a computer?
18:05
Scotty: That’s a great question, I.. I would like to think I still can
18:09
It has been a long time
18:11
Like, it has been multiple, multiple generations.
18:13
Linus: I bought the screwdriver for you.
18:16
I’m gonna be in charge of unboxing
18:18
and you’re gonna be in charge of actually building this mess.
18:20
Scotty: alright.
18:21
Linus: Okay, you’re already doing my job.
18:25
Whole collab ruined.
18:27
Scotty: Linus takes the vision of responsibility very carefully.
18:30
Linus: Okay, so.. Uhh..
18:31
Here, we can.. Let me just do a quick overview of our case here.
18:34
Scotty: Yep.
18:35
Linus: so this case is from the brand..
18:37
Powertrain.
18:39
So we were successful on the case front.
18:41
We found something that I had never heard of before.
18:43
It’s the ‘Chameleon’
18:45
and honestly for a 40 dollar case, the fact that it has RGB lighting..
18:49
Not that bad.
18:51
Feeling a little weird, assembling a computer in the middle of a.. Marketsquare.
18:55
Scotty: This is totally normal, there is.. they’ll be like..
18:57
There’s iPhone repair going on at McDonald’s down there, so..
18:59
Linus: Fair enough..
19:00
Okay, we might have run up against our first challenge.
19:03
We actually need to pull out these two standoffs
19:06
and they are freaking tight.
19:07
So one option –
19:09
and I have used this with success before –
19:12
is to take a motherboard screw here,
19:14
Scotty: Right..
19:15
Linus: and.. Screw it in..
19:18
Too much! Like, seize it.
19:19
Scotty: yeah.
19:20
Linus: in the standoff.
19:21
Scotty: and then try back off the standoff and the screw
19:23
Linus: and then try back off the standoff and the screw
19:24
Scotty: It’s worth the shot.
19:26
Oooh! Oh that looks good!
19:28
Linus: Got one.
19:29
Scotty: that looks good.
19:30
Linus: Okay, but we’re gonna sacrifice another screw here.
19:33
Ooooh! We got it!
19:34
Scotty: Oh, you’re a lucky man..
19:36
Linus: this is my computer, you’re the lucky man.
19:39
So there you go, these are
19:40
These are seized as hell.
19:41
Like, without plyers and..
19:44
Yeah, we’re not getting that out anymore.
19:46
Alright, so while Scotty screws in the motherboard
19:49
I’m gonna go through everything else we got here.
19:51
So this is a bit of a cheat,I have heard of “Great Wall”
19:54
But it is a Chinese brand
19:56
Uhh, I don’t think I have ever seen a “Great Wall” power supply available..
19:59
Outside of China.
20:01
Wow!
20:02
You got a modular power supply!
20:04
There you go, modular cables!
20:06
Scotty: Oh, fancy.
20:08
Linus: Plug in what you need.
20:09
Scotty: Fancy Pantsie.
20:10
I would say that goes down here, right?
20:12
Linus: Yes it does, but we need..
20:13
Scotty: How do I get it in there?
20:14
Linus: You need to pull this off.
20:15
How the hell do we..
20:16
You know what, no! We don’t have to take off. You can just slide it in.
20:19
You know what we have to do?
20:20
Is find out how good of a deal we got.
20:22
Scotty: I’m willing to say a little bit more expensive than the States, but I’m not sure.
20:25
Linus: Oh… Our case did not include any cooling fans
20:29
And we blew our money on a radiator
20:31
Instead of a rear fan. Damnit.
20:34
And our stock cooler, goes on right here.
20:37
Scotty: Right. If.. If we’re double teaming on assembling, than I’m gonna double team on unboxing here.
20:42
Linus: Did you just get the thermal goop all over your hand?!
20:44
Scotty: I did..
20:45
Linus: No wonder your projects take you 8 months.
20:48
Scotty: Being an idiot doesn’t help.
20:49
Linus: Okay.. HyperX FURY!!
20:53
Alright.. What else is there in here..
20:55
Scotty: we’re ready to pop this in and then put cards in?
20:57
Linus: Yep.
20:59
Oh, that’s almost in. Oh shoot, is that in our way?
21:02
Okay, we’re in!
21:03
It’s like actually getting dark enough that I’m having trouble seeing now too.
21:06
Scotty: Flashlight?
21:07
Linus: Can you flashlight me?
21:08
Did you just say fleshlight?
21:09
Scotty: I did not say ‘fleshlight you’
21:11
Linus: Because like, not on camera..
21:13
So, he showed us the graphics card
21:16
But I did not realize it was like a brown box card, like it..
21:19
The card he showed us looked legit..
21:23
Uhh.. ‘Made in China’.. ‘GTX 1060
21:26
Ooh! This is a system integrator.. SKU.
21:29
So he sold us an OEM card, that rad bastard
21:32
So this probably doesn’t have as much warranty on it
21:34
Again, not my problem.
21:35
Scotty: So that’s.. Yeah.
21:36
Linus: I actually like this screwdriver.
21:38
Scotty: Are you commentating for something
21:40
Linus: Okay, now..
21:42
I promised that I was putting this damn radiator in, no matter what.
21:45
Scotty: Oh yeah, you did.
21:47
Linus: So I’m doing it
21:48
It’s not gonna do anything
21:49
But it’s gonna be in there.
21:51
Scotty: We need our tubing as well, right?
21:52
Linus: Yeah. Hell yeah.
21:53
You know, like that. Right?
21:55
Scotty: I would just run it back right into the other one.
21:57
Just like that.
21:58
Linus: No, no, no, no. I want it to look convincing
22:01
Scotty: you want full illusion?
22:02
Linus: yeah I just want.. We’re gonna run this baby right there
22:05
That looks kinda watercooled.. Right?
22:07
See?
22:08
What do you think?
22:08
Scotty: Totally watercooled.
22:10
Linus: Thank you.
22:11
Scotty: totally watercooled.
22:12
Linus: let me show you a cable management secret..
22:14
Scotty: Show me. I love cable management.
22:16
[Chuckle]
22:18
Linus: Okay, so this is the moment where I find out
22:20
If this was a good deal
22:23
Or a
22:24
[Removing plastic foil]
22:24
Rip off.
22:25
Scotty: Ooooh… [Chuckle]
22:27
Linus: I had to make some compromises with my Newegg equiavelent
22:30
So I used a Rosewill power supply with sort of similar specs
22:34
I picked like the second cheapest generic SSD I could find
22:39
And then for case.. Honestly,
22:41
They were better deals. Shipped.
22:43
Scotty: Really?!
22:44
Linus: I could get a case for 38 US Dollars
22:46
Which is less than what we paid for this.
22:47
Scotty: Yeah. Little less.
22:48
Linus: I would have paid 1142
22:50
Scotty: 1142?! Linus: How did we do?
22:52
Scotty: We did.. 1162.
22:54
Plus 2 dollars and 50 cents for the screwdriver.
22:57
Linus: So..
22:59
It was basically the same.
23:01
Well that was fun.
23:03
I’m sure glad that, that was so stressful, but here, congratulations.
23:06
Do whatever you want it
23:08
I no longer care
23:09
Scotty: Thank you
23:09
Linus: I don’t know if it works
23:10
But it’s watercooled
23:12
Depending on who you ask..
23:14
See, it looks pretty watercooled!
23:15
Scotty: It looks very watercooled.
23:16
Linus: Doesn’t it look watercooled?!
23:17
Scotty: It looks very watercooled.
23:18
Linus: No one is gonna look that closely at it.
23:19
