PhoenixMelior: Bell Let's Talk... about how you really need to do better as an ISP.
wildpeaks: slow internet is worse than no internet at all because the slow loading is infuriating
PhoenixMelior: well, maybe not ISP, YET.
evilspoons983: yeah, cellular and ISPs aren't really a space for normal "commerce" to take place because of the massive startup capital required. I can't just go create "Bob's ISP" the way I could create "Bob's Corner Store"
PhoenixMelior: totally
PhoenixMelior: I guess it's all quite a bit of first world problems - I guess paying 80 dollars a month to consume all my LRR and podcast content at a reasonable load speed isn't all bad

evilspoons983: but simultaneously, it's like... why should you give away your money to the corporation that can set whatever price it wants because it has locked out reasonable competition vs having an actual alternative
evilspoons983: the one that always gets me is cellular, everyone says "oh cell phone plans are so expensive in canada because it's so big and there's way more infrastructure" yet simultaneously Russia has working cell networks in The Boonies (I've been there) for the equivalent of $15/month - before the ruble crashed!
PhoenixMelior: it's all very #EatTheRich isn't it

PhoenixMelior: anyway a stream is about to start

teh_v: My friend has a porn folder on his PC and he's like "I labeled it, it's your fault if you click on it."
ND_Ericson: Is that like the scene where the guy with many knives gets arrested and they find one knife? Ppl check out your PC and think that is THE porn folder, when it's actually just ONE porn folder... "They're allowed to find one"
Astra7525: Are we allowed to "keep" the GPU?
MistahFixIt: You have to remove the retaining plate
Astra7525: Is it even broken?
TheWarbo: I like the tooltip explaining what the graphics card does.
Count_Nodonora: Wait a minit, that graphics car is the same as what he wants put in?
Lord_Hosk: They ask for a Geforce GTX970 or better. but only pay you for a 970 no matter what you install because they are monsters
AntiCrepuscular: rude!
Astra7525: ah dang, it's actually broken
Hulyen: @teh_v lol! I like his style
Lapinelis: A realistic porn folder is a folder on desktop called taxes, that has another folder there called invoices, then extra folder, then bin, miscellanious, then DO NOT OPEN THIS FOLDER
AdmiralMemo: I mean, we COULD keep it... if we learned how to fix it.
NimrodXIV: never mind desktop porn. can't lose screws. 0/10 realism
wildpeaks: also ti's a working card
MistahFixIt: Nvidia Ti Commentary? Kappa
ND_Ericson: It's an upgrade from BROKEN to WORKS, so... I'd take that Kappa
Count_Nodonora: Way too many screws in that case.
dr0ne00000: you should have cut your hand on the case by now
AdmiralMemo: Ugh... working PCs man...
AdmiralMemo: Do we have to install the drivers?
LordZarano: NimrodXIV: and cant have 1 left over with no holes to put it in
crashdownreg: the magic smoke escapes
AntiCrepuscular: these PCs look quite empty
TXC2: oh you'd get weird scan lines on the screen
MistahFixIt: Wow plug-and-play graphics cards.
NimrodXIV: @LordZarano Right?!
SajuukSjet: accurate would be reseating all the memory modules Kappa
MistahFixIt: Living in the future
AdmiralMemo: Should we virus scan? Just in case? :D
SerGarretCameron: Immersion ruined. no driver install.
wildpeaks: oh yeah, and we always put the usb plug the right way infirst try, so unrealistic
TStodden: You DIDN'T jinx it by leaving the case open.
TheOtherTrevor: AScruffMcGruffin: I they aren't on google play but I see them in the google podcasts app
AdmiralMemo: We're not getting PAID for a virus scan.
ND_Ericson: I know those aren't real PCs, but I still cringe a bit when you power off a PC without shutting it down D: PCs have feelings too, man!
Hulyen: @NimrodXIV I think I still have a baggie of 20 different size screws that I know what none of them go to if you're every missing any. Statistically at least a couple probably came from something of yours
MistahFixIt: Pick it up, suddenly you hear crashing Kappa
glitched_goddess: Yeah this is going too easy for computer repair. Not realistic at all.
NimrodXIV: @Hulyen LOL not that I know of
TheWarbo: "no-charge graphics card upgrade": james will do it. "virus scan that costs no money": james refuses
MistahFixIt: Oh one of these solid-glass side-panels
TheManaLeek: Hard drive is on the other side
MistahFixIt: I'd be terrified of breaking it tbh
TheManaLeek: Mounted SSD
Lapinelis: I like how everyone here has tempered glass cases with 20$ celeron cpus
Astra7525: is that a removable cover at the bottom?
teh_v: Yea, realism ruining, these parts are popping in and out to easy. No one has cussed once.
AdmiralMemo: Install the SATA cables first?
Tehbeard: Does completing this game give you GeekSquad certification? Kappa
TStodden: Anti-virus licenses cost money.

MDK_Marshal: Hulyen: It is if you try hard enough :D
postmodernpajamawrestler: now you can watch porn in SUPER high quality
MistahFixIt: The clicking-and-holding thing looks like it gets tiresome after a while
TStodden: We have to keep it operational, TheOtherTrevor.
AntiCrepuscular: thinnest HDMI cable in the world :)
TheManaLeek: There's an upgrade to not have to hold the button in to connect stuff
mtvcdm: I think the streaming computer has one of these wallpapers.
Lord_Hosk: It just connects, you dont have to guess which one is right, look in the Motherboard manual for an hour, then look online and find two contradictory answers, try one it doesnt work, try the other it doesnt work, then try the first one again and it does work.
teh_v: Wait did you just put a new hard drive in and not have to install an os?
TehAmelie: a little more My Summer Car physics?
wicker_knight: where's the button to spill coffee on the case?
Zath_: I wonder if it would be more profitable to just sel all the parts of the PCs you get
MistahFixIt: @teh_v - Secondary drive. Already had an OS Drive
Hulyen: Ah, the days of trying to figure out which jumpers go where to make it all friggen work and trying to not lose them in the process
tenthtechpriest: maybe it's in freebuild? or just on repairsyou're not up to yet
malc: if only missed screws were highlighted in orange in real life
Mangledpixel: teh_v it was a secondary HD, there were others in there already, which presumably had the OS on

MistahFixIt: $280 gfx card? In what universe? :P

Texan_Reverend: Hell yeah, Ryzen.
TheManaLeek: They are partnered with the companies
GDwarf: The stuff in the game is officially licensed, I believe
MistahFixIt: neat.
wildpeaks: they have partnerships, that's even why some brands are oddly missing
Hulyen: neat!
EvilBadman: Yeah, why wouldn't brands want free advertising
InfiniTea_and_Biscuits: yes, to some degree this is marketing for the brands - they are all approved/licenced
Bartlebad: Is this game just a giant ad?

TheOtherTrevor: So you're trying to start a fire paul?
MistahFixIt: Paul I don't mean to worry you but I think your workshop is haunted by ghost furniture
Astra7525: I figure the usual Gamign adjacent companies immediately jumped for a brand deal, but companies that focus on like storage (Seagate, Samsung) won't and that's why those names are missing
TStodden: PC Simulator inception?
EvilBadman: @Hulyen You say that but terrible games exist with ads in them

ND_Ericson: thanks, memo!
MistahFixIt: Is that wallpaper concept art from Transistor?
Bartlebad: Your very own pet Rat King
evilspoons983: I'm pretty sure it said there are four slots
cheetoJack: what kind of RAM is compatible with their CPU
Doc_Rider: No, there is 2GB in the PC already and it has 4 slots
TXC2: MistahFixIt I think so
Texan_Reverend: If it ever mentions that the PC is from a place where people have smoked, turn down the job.
AntiCrepuscular: "Team Group T-Force DARK" LUL
Hulyen: @Texan_Reverend *shudder*
TheManaLeek: Get two 8s, steal their 2GB
Laserbeaks_Fury: That background seems familiar
Count_Nodonora: Isn't there a button to see the pc specs in the email to help you get the right ram?
j0xer: probably check that motherboard compatibility
TehAmelie: it's hard to top the story of the guy who went to a farm for on-site service and found a computer living in a barn with chickens roosting in it
Emergent_OS: I was always curious, can you actually ship System Case? Can fully build computer cases survive shipping?
oyleslyck: 2 8GBs and sell the 2GB
TXC2: Texan_Reverend how bad could it be? Kappa
AntiCrepuscular: Texan_Reverend just full of tar
Texan_Reverend: Also, the CryoRig M9 is my favorite cheap air cooler.
MennoKnight42: 2 8's is cheaper than 4 4's
AdmiralMemo: We get to keep the old RAM, too.
Astra7525: 4x2 doesn't get ysou to 16
Texan_Reverend: @anticrepuscular I've been there. It's truly horrendous.
MistahFixIt: You'd need 4x4gb to complete the job though, right?
TheManaLeek: Yeah RAM incompatibility is mostly a thing from way back when
wicker_knight: @TehAmelie like, a "functioning" computer? Because a PC case would make a decent (albeit expensive) chicken roost I'd think...
TehAmelie: yep
wicker_knight: huh
TehAmelie: just very slow
MistahFixIt: The m9a is what I use. It's... Fine(tm)
AdmiralMemo: @TheManaLeek I remember a problem I had on my Win98 PC where it would randomly crash because I got the wrong parity
wicker_knight: wonder how close it is to typing out Hamlet
TheManaLeek: @AdmiralMemo Those were the days...
AdmiralMemo: ExtremePuck
Texan_Reverend: It makes me sad to go with anything cheaper than the M9, because the step down in quality is significant.
TehAmelie: T-1000? i hope that's a model of graphics card you can get in the game
j0xer: you seem to be the only employee
TXC2: I dont want my Repairs to be red hot
Lord_Hosk: aren't yo uTHE WHOLE company?
AdmiralMemo: -$15 actually
wicker_knight: no, you're just the whole staff right now
evilspoons983: I remember desoldering the pins from SIPS to make them to SIMMs, 386 era
accountmadeforants: RAM that's on the way-too-high-end of clockrates sometimes have incompatibility issues with some motherboards, though. Though that doesn't seem to be as much of an issue with DDR4.
ND_Ericson: Last time I upgraded my RAM it also didnt work. Apparently I'm just bad at pushing the RAM-sticks far enough in. After a couple of hours of out - in - reboot it just kinda worked...
AntiCrepuscular: AdmiralMemo I had crashes because my BIOS secretly overclocked the CPU when I set the correct ram timings SwiftRage
AdmiralMemo: @AntiCrepuscular wut
JustNotAFox: maybe he gave us the flash drive
Emergent_OS: Does anyone knows, if it is actually possible, to ship fully assembled computer?
TheManaLeek: It's a VERY dusty office, only took a day to get like this
AdmiralMemo: Yes
TehAmelie: i hope we get to some fancy custom case mods
MistahFixIt: Take out the GFX card and any Platter Drives
glitched_goddess: Was this stored with the ark of the covenant???
TXC2: Like, who doesn't at least wipe down the outside of the case before sending it?
MistahFixIt: That's how I shipped my PC
KidAmn: You can get inflatable foam fillers which mould to the interior - my last PC came shipped like that and I literally plugged it in and powered it on
rocketjohn: yeah, this is unsatisfying.
v_nome: Dell's whole business is shipping fully assembled computers
Hulyen: @ND_Ericson I once spent a couple hours troubleshooting why my new RAM wasn't working. Turns out that while I was seating the new stick, I managed to unseat the old one. (I was doubling my memory and it was a mid tower that was impossible to see in easily)

Lord_Hosk: thermal paste
TehAmelie: dust is quite hard to render you know
evilspoons983: don't forget the thermal paste
MistahFixIt: Ahhh the great debate
MistahFixIt: How to apply Thermal Paste
Hulyen: you'd burn out your cpu?
StarShock2002: you can get like expanding foam bags that you break the seal stick it in the case and close it up, and it holds the stuff in place
crashdownreg: apply whole tube
tenthtechpriest: paul stop being inefficient
ND_Ericson: @Hulyen in my case it was just me being to gentle cause I was scared of breaking anything. Turns out RAM sticks need a tiny bit of violence
MistahFixIt: Ask 10 computer builders how to apply paste you'll get 15 different answers :P
AntiCrepuscular: oooh
Hulyen: @ND_Ericson Ahaha yup, I've had motherboards where I was sure it was going to break the memory before it finally snapped in
TehAmelie: mmm, thermal pasta
MistahFixIt: lrrFINE

BrindleBoar: das boot?
MistahFixIt: They come with like, a congealed Thermal Paste pad iirc
TXC2: well the last two I got did :P
TehAmelie: i like my wimmins like i like my PC projects, hot and broken
Emergent_OS: I remember seating my first RAM... I was trembling for hours, because I was mortified of bending the motherboard, or breaking the RAM...
Texan_Reverend: @txc2 Depends on the unit. Stock coolers included with CPUs do. Most 3rd party coolers don't.
TehAmelie: i'll see myself out
TheWarbo: I like the different Paul vs James strategies
Papperslappen: I've seen a lot of people claim that the included paste is not as good as the one you apply yourself. Haven't seen any data on it though
TXC2: Texan_Reverend yeah these were stock
AdmiralMemo: Have we sold any broken parts yet or will they just collect on our shelves? :D
crashdownreg: why can't I stop watching this?
evilspoons983: @Papperslappen there was data on Anandtech

Papperslappen: evilspoons983 I will look it up. thanks
Lord_Hosk: Almost every build I have done I have had to cut something on a fan, either cut the wire free to get a couple extra mm, or redrill a hole because it doesnt line up...
MennoKnight42: rightfully or otherwise
Meyari: the slots weren't open?
StarShock2002: Yeah, they took out the ability to mix ram recently, it's kind of annoying
Pal_Friendpatine: I’m still deciding whether I would prefer watching you play this or actually work on a real PC* riffThink
AdmiralMemo: Open the clips
62MGcobra: now you can sell it
Emergent_OS: I have a real world question. How big of the concern is the static discharge, when assembling computers?
NojhLivic: I think there are still some motherboards out that that don't like you having ram outside of powers of 2.
dr0ne00000: no spoilers @AdmiralMemo
accountmadeforants: Curious whether the game also accounts for which slots are paired for dual-channel
Lord_Hosk: Emergent_OS its a concern, not nearly as big of a concern as it used to be.

chucksplatt: Yeah, static discharge is mostly a precaution. But if you are the kind of person that does comptuer maintenance regularly, there's no reason why you shouldn't have some equipment to mitigate it.
accountmadeforants: Emergent_OS It's not too bad, most components nowadays are fairly robust, and you can just ground yourself by touching the PSU from time to time

dr0ne00000: wait I thought we shipped the USB to a customer?
Emergent_OS: Got it, I usually ground myself with the wristband, because I am not brave enough to work without it.

tux789: yeah put in like 4gb video card, 32gb ram and like a 100watt power supply, repeat business
devil_dan: Is that a Transistor wallpaper?
NathanJay_GA: I think there are only like... 3 RAM manufacturers, and many brands just buy from them
HesGotNoPants: can we build a PC so powerful it can hack laugh_ay
dr0ne00000: @MistahFixIt when is RAM going to come back down in price, I was going to pick some up but it is like 2x what I spent building my current rig
AdmiralMemo: @devil_dan Yep. It just takes your actual wallpaper.
HesGotNoPants: laugh-a-tron
MistahFixIt: @dr0ne00000 - Soon(tm)
AdmiralMemo: Wait, can we upgrade THIS PC to have better RAM and such?
mercano82: @mistahfixit next to the computer they're using for email? I think it's drawers for screws and other small parts.
MistahFixIt: (I blame Crypto tbh)
tux789: @dr0ne00000 when people finally figure out bitcoins are worthless
MistahFixIt: @mercano82 - I thought their computer was on the floor under the desk?
TehAmelie: i hope we can mod temporal paradox delivery into the game. . .
mercano82: Next to the monitor
MistahFixIt: Moar Fans = Better? :P
evilspoons983: you have an intel G4400, which is socket LGA 1151
MistahFixIt: If you don't mind your Case sounding like a jet turbine :P
Ranakel: I just want some appreciation for the name of the shop. I'd purchase my stuff at "Bits & PCs"
AdmiralMemo: You didn't actually BUY it
Lord_Hosk: There is always room for another couple of case fans
tux789: just put a leaf blower inther easy fix
wicker_knight: @MistahFixIt one of the strangest bar conversations I ever had was with a guy who said he was from a company that made processors and was _profoundly_ confused and disturbed by the whole crypto thing

ricin: my electricity and gas bill isn't even as cheap as $500
AdmiralMemo: @MistahFixIt I mean, I've got a $700 mortgage...
rustenskurk: My friends had persuaded me it would be easy. But I had basically no knowledge of hardware.
GrumblingMoblin: i wish my PC could get this clean with just air
movexig: That's a nasty-ass computer.
MistahFixIt: @AdmiralMemo - You're still doing WAY better than me
tux789: no cockroach nests or smoke gunk, totally unrealistic 1 out of 10
MistahFixIt: I'm paying nearly $1k for a Bachelor :c

evilspoons983: read the email and do the "bonus" objectives?
MistahFixIt: tbh the dust looks like mold
Obliviousaurus: people send in their computers just to have dust removed?
TXC2: seriously people, at least clean the cases
MistahFixIt: And that brings back baaaad pc repair memories
EvilBadman: Blowing the dust out should obscure your vision and make you cough for 2 minutes.
movexig: Just rip it out of there with your massive hulk hands
AdmiralMemo: So the bonus objectives don't go on the thing?
dr0ne00000: open before you order?
GrumblingMoblin: are we able to lose the screws doing this?
TheManaLeek: Yeah you can keep computers for a few days
CrazymattCaptain: some show you the computer's stats
Count_Nodonora: The email has a "Spec" button that tells you what the computer is.
tux789: only put in 1 to 2 screws back as is tradition
GrumblingMoblin: if not this experience is lacking :P
MistahFixIt: LOL
MistahFixIt: "Welp, mine now."
TheManaLeek: This is where the extra work benches come in handy
AdmiralMemo: iz moar ram. iz fien.
Stoopler: "sir you just said upgrade my ram, not use the same i already had"
MistahFixIt: complimentary cleaning is a thing most PC shops do anyway, iirc
AdmiralMemo: So now you can keep that RAM and buy only 1 more for a future project.

wildpeaks: and if it dosn't work anymore, call it a modern art statue or soemthing :D
TXC2: heat sink is chonk
evilspoons983: no, the fan's probably fine as long as you plugged it in to power
Astra7525: it's mounted the right way
MistahFixIt: Isn't that the way it's supposed to be?
NathanJay_GA: its fime?
NathanJay_GA: *fine
Fearitude: its correct
MistahFixIt: Unless the fan pulls instead of pushes?
plummeting_sloth: perhaps a combination fan/vacuum
wicker_knight: lrrFINE
SeedaSantos: apply thermal paste??
Astra7525: I have not seen a tower cooler with the intake fan BEHIND the heatsink
MistahFixIt: So much thermal paste
lectrican_man: try turning it off and on again
AdmiralMemo: "missing cables"
MistahFixIt: WELP
TXC2: shouldn't it face out from the CPU?
2menace: can you install it up?
NathanJay_GA: Ive seen push-pull coolers, but not pull-only
evilspoons983: mine has TWO but the front one was first
bi0buster: That fan is MASSIVE.
TemporallyAwry: You normally pull fresh-air over the CPU - at least "best practice" says to do it that way.
MistahFixIt: Set Turbines to Speed!
adamjford: absolute unit
2menace: normally you could switch the direction of the fan ^^
Lord_Hosk: Thermal paste costs like $10 a tube, and at .001 ml per use, its only going to last through 900 uses... shits expensive yo
AdmiralMemo: Yeah
AdmiralMemo: Does it boot up faster?
evilspoons983: yes, it's better
Lord_Hosk: thats better
TheManaLeek: Water cooling some day
HavenJunde: thats so much quieter
ContingentCat: lrrHorn

MechaKuuga: where is the LIQUID METAL
Pal_Friendpatine: Does the game not have a dB meter for testing the fan volume?

Wodar9: Ya have a special inventory would be nice
MistahFixIt: Is there an actual utility bill?
rocketjohn: it would be good if the parts appeared on the desk
rocketjohn: know, where you'd put them
TXC2: arcaneemperor I doubt this game has that kind of granularity
rocketjohn: on an antistatic bag
MistahFixIt: So do we have to renew our OmegaSoft license after replacing the motherboard? Kappa
movexig: Does this game accurately simulate the thing where you have to snap a metal arm over the CPU to hold it in place, but it never snaps so you have to apply so much force to it you're worrying you're going to break the motherboard in half?
karpma: the real simulation is the friends we made along the way
plummeting_sloth: yeah, I want "screw finding simulator"
tenthtechpriest: screw screw scre- crap wrong screw unscrewunscrewunscrew
AdmiralMemo: Did you hit undo?
MistahFixIt: wat
TXC2: also, who does this with the case standing up?
bi0buster: The place I buy parts from mounts CPU's to mobos for you because people keep breaking them.
Meark: you have to remove the standoffs too
Astra7525: @movexig The worst sound: The high pitch metal creaking when it finally snaps shut after I used a lot of force to close it
MistahFixIt: Ohhhhh
tux789: Im just glad none of the screws are stripped
GrumblingMoblin: how often can we get cut on sharp edges? I always need a box of bandages on the desk when changing motherboards
Lord_Hosk: No no.. the real simulation is. "why arent these holes lining up?"
AdmiralMemo: Can we dust this too?
PurpleAlzir: isn't it the same motherboard that you got?
AntiCrepuscular: tux789 or dropped into the case and trapped under the mobo D:

TXC2: you gotta have the case lying flat, with you bending over it lrrEFF ing up your back
GrumblingMoblin: @AdmiralMemo or "fuck, these are the wrong spacers"
MistahFixIt: @TXC2 - too real
CrazymattCaptain: I thought the real simulation would have the destruction of the heads of screws and still trying to figure out how to tighten them
Astra7525: Standoffs also usually come with the case, don't they?
MechaKuuga: yeah like EATX or Micro ATX or Mini ITX
AdmiralMemo: Ooh!
AdmiralMemo: That's handy!
PurpleAlzir: this isn't surgeon simulator, have to put everything back first
TheWarbo: what's the number next to PC Status?
MechaKuuga: don't forget that TIM
TXC2: MistahFixIt right? like I do weight training for my back, cleaning the PC hurts more :P
GrumblingMoblin: I like that there is a filter for just stuff that fits in the PC
2menace: channel 1 & 2? you monsters!!!
tux789: aslo where are the masive piles of outdated cables and computer accesories to the side
TheManaLeek: @TheWarbo The 3DMark score I think
MistahFixIt: A Celeron? What kind of antique is this? DansGame
MechaKuuga: @LoadingReadyRun for my OCD please put the RAM in channel 2 and 4
AshBurnem: Always go channels 2 & 4,
2menace: @LoadingReadyRun RAM in slots 1&3 not 1&2
The_FlyingDutchman: always alternate ram stick paul
QuanticEline: gotta do dual channel my dude.
MistahFixIt: The sticks came installed that way
evilspoons983: depends on the mainboard
TheWarbo: @TheManaLeek Oh, huh. That seems...odd. But believable in a game.
tux789: Also why no Compaqs with non-standard sizing?
MistahFixIt: they arrived in 1 and 2
Astra7525: I don't think it matters to this game
AdmiralMemo: Graphics card
movexig: Plug the fan in
ADTalks: vidya
2menace: @LoadingReadyRun 99% its slower in 1&2 though. but I guess it doesn't matter ^^
Astra7525: and b) which slots you have to use depends on the motherboard

MechaKuuga: @Astra7525 But it matter IRL and esp in my heart

AshBurnem: That case has so much room for activities.
MistahFixIt: My NZXT Tempest has ACRES of space tbh
tux789: put in a random soundblaster
Animekitty93: devil_dan Maybe later? That would be cool
evilspoons983: it's weird how basically no one has come in with a "normal" case
AshBurnem: We have POST!
Astra7525: The worst I have seen was a rack-server case that had two CPUs installed, but the 4x32GB RAM modules where only slotted in for one CPU. No wonder this thing was having problems running even the OS
MistahFixIt: I miss Beep Codes
movexig: Man, everyone has such wholesome desktop wallpapers.
MistahFixIt: Mine has a single LED
MechaKuuga: Post Codes are definitely better
AdmiralMemo: @movexig You can change them... :D
plummeting_sloth: aww, i was hoping if you forgot to unplug it it would drag your mouse and keyboard along with it
MistahFixIt: Which is damned near impossible to see if the CPU cooler is installed.
Emergent_OS: @mistahfixit I miss Paul’s rant about the Beep codes...
MistahFixIt: Major design fail
MechaKuuga: @LoadingReadyRun There are some middle of the road motherboards that offer a POST led for CPU, RAM, ETC
Cameron_577: would you guys recommend this game to someone interested in building a PC but never done anything of the sort? would it be a good way to understand what is happening?
TheWarbo: yeah, so far we haven't booted up any computers to see the customers' inappropriate anime girls wallpaper
Animekitty93: TheWarbo I'm waiting :D
MistahFixIt: Yes, in a very rudimentary sort of way?
devil_dan: Can you make a YouTube channel about building computers?
Welbog: It's close enough to building a PC.
TXC2: Cameron_577 it over simplifies some important stuff
MistahFixIt: It at least shows you how parts fit together
AdmiralMemo: Yeah. It would be a good idea to get you started in "Would I enjoy this?"
Welbog: But with fewer sharp edges and static discharge scares.
MechaKuuga: @Cameron_577 I think you might be better off learning IRL from a experienced tech and using some old PC parts
PurpleAlzir: this seems like a good start but should not be the only resource used for learning
Wodar9: It is good enough. You could always just watch youtube videos on it too
The_FlyingDutchman: nah... just ask someone you know that is building one to join
MistahFixIt: What, no Gfx header?
movexig: Yeah I'm just waiting for some computer to boot up to a wallpaper plastered with furry husbandos or something.
AdmiralMemo: Playing Crysis? Kappa
incslayer: well he only had a 250watt one
Astra7525: James, some customers are stupid.
PurpleAlzir: he likes wasting money on his PSU
GrumblingMoblin: He is getting PC shamed by his friends
Pteraspidomorphi: You have to pack the rest of the case with lightbulbs
AshBurnem: Futureproofing.
MechaKuuga: @LoadingReadyRun Overhead room for expansion!
Wodar9: James! The Customer is ALWAYS RIGHT
Cameron_577: @MechaKuuga unfortunately i dont have access to old parts or the funds to pick any up
TheManaLeek: Don't question a customer wasting money for no reason
MistahFixIt: Ohai
Doc_Rider: Don't forget about the mount for the PSU.
AdmiralMemo: There we go!
devil_dan: You should keep that power supply and give them a cheaper one.
MistahFixIt: This still seems... not good
movexig: Solid 16 fps, nice
AdmiralMemo: And still 16 FPS
evilspoons983: PCs are more power-efficient than ever, but a 250 is still too low for most
plummeting_sloth: that FPS though
TXC2: wait there are houses on that thing in Dubai? I thought it was just trees
MistahFixIt: Even my computer is a 600w
The_FlyingDutchman: I seen people wanting to run mid tier 1000 W PSU's in a GTX 1070/i58600 build on the tech forums I frequent
dr0ne00000: it is a locked in 16 fps, that is nice
Iraeda: maybe he just wants a stable 16.5 FPS
Animekitty93: Welp, this is a frame rate
The_FlyingDutchman: way overkill
2menace: Graphics Card without power supply but he needs 600W. Is he powering his fridge with the PC?
AshBurnem: Better than Krog's.
PurpleAlzir: he is getting up to 25 FPS, he is wanting absurd amount of rames
Astra7525: Can't you use a Molex/SATA Power to PCIe 6pin adapter?
AdmiralMemo: I bought an adapter that changes from a SATA power to one of the graphics card power things.
evilspoons983: solid (any frame rate) is better than crashing due to undervoltage
MechaKuuga: @Cameron_577 Well if you are REALLY new to pc building there are actually LOTS of videos on youtube about pc building
The_FlyingDutchman: if this runs so bad it just needs like 350 W
TXC2: I think I have 550 watt PSU, better yet it's 90plus gold
plummeting_sloth: this is a sick ass museum
Emergent_OS: I remember, how when LRR’s video card broke and kept computer from booting, Paul went on a long tirade about how he misses the POST codes. That Talk was very funny.
AdmiralMemo: @2menace I bought a single-can USB-powered fridge from ThinkGeek.
SSouthard: wow, you have a 170 TI Paul? I'm stuck on a TI 95 and all mine does is graph things.
Pteraspidomorphi: Hehe
The_FlyingDutchman: I run a 550 W for a RX580
Cameron_577: @MechaKuuga i have been looking at some of those, but was curious if this game would provide a bit more of an interactive experience to cement what the videos show
PurpleAlzir: @AdmiralMemo does it actually work decently?
devil_dan: @plummeting_sloth A museum all about sick asses.
dr0ne00000: @Emergent_OS lol wut? my newer motherboards have a display built in to help with that sort of thing

devil_dan: All my slots are taken up by my vertically installed graphics card.
NathanJay_GA: !fundquote bullet
NathanJay_GA: d'oh
MechaKuuga: @Cameron_577 Its more of a mix of fun and real world PC mechanics than a tutorial, you can definitely play it to get familiar with lots of PC parts, but when it comes doing it IRL, you should really always do your homework on your parts and always read the documentation

azureHaights: Skibingle, Skibongle, your PC needs a dongle
TheWarbo: Bongles: once you pop (the side panel off)...
TheManaLeek: He clicked something bad = virus?
devil_dan: Do those windows go outside the monitor?
PhoenixMelior: Once you pop, that's great!
Mowdownjoe: "I think I clicked on something bad." Virus bets?
MechaKuuga: that team group ram is a REAL dimm
Juking_is_Rude: I bet running an AV would be the bonuc objective then
austinoickle: the real question is: how many dongles can you sting in this game?
AdmiralMemo: If we give the red one, he might assume it was used.
dr0ne00000: hey LRR my PC got a virus after I googled bongle, can I ship it to you guys?
AdmiralMemo: Those Barracuda drives are nice.
movexig: I really don't want to know what my bongle rating is

AdmiralMemo: @Rioxcon 2 of them are regular sub message and the fact that Twitch changed the sub system back-end. Not sure of the third.
Doc_Rider: And this one needs a virus scan
TehAmelie: i once got annoyed with a fan that was attached to the case and cut the wire to it while the computer was on. never got into case modding after that

Astra7525: Isn't XMP another one of those "Sure you can waste 40% more money to get 10% more performance" things?
evilspoons983: it's "supposed to" be able to run at XMP settings and if your computer can't handle it, phooey for you
AdmiralMemo: It says "some" upgrades. You can upgrade more stuff I suspect.

austinoickle: my current potato is in a fancy FD case
Laurreth: Whisle, USB-C is DLC :-P (you can buy a replacement I/O block)

Astra7525: Can we explode a PC?
devil_dan: Encase the whole thing in thermal paste.
Papperslappen: Coolerless is like torchless in PC Building Simulator
Whisle: @Laurreth oh really? dang, i have to look that up! that would be neat
TheMagicWalrus: no cooling just put your hand on it so it doesn't shut down immediately
TStodden: Get a massive heatsink attached to the top of the case. Doubles as a griddle! lrrBEEJ
The_FlyingDutchman: RGB all the things?
Astra7525: The problem with Intel's 18 core CPUs is that they rushed the thing when they saw AMD drop their Ryzen and the THreadripper. IT has some serious issues and I don't think you should buy them
austinoickle: cook pasta with the heat from your 18 core chip!
The_FlyingDutchman: NVlink?

TehAmelie: how would a titanium heat sink do?
Whisle: @Laurreth i found them on their site. They say it's compatible with the Define R6, i have a Define R5 :( But it looks like it would fit. I think i'll message them about it. Thanks!

austinoickle: @TXC2 Silver is the most electrically and thermally conductive metal says google

Temperature_Droplet: do we know if the pc they are building can run pc building simulator?
dr0ne00000: @Omega117 I think this PC should be submersible and get thrown in a pool
TehAmelie: man i was just guessing
Whisle: @Laurreth "The front I/O panel of the Define R6 is a totally new design with a different shape from any previous Fractal Design case, and the Connect D1 is specially designed to fit that unique shape." :(
TXC2: austinoickle huh, i was expecting it to be some esoteric kind of alloy
GapFiller: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: LRRMtG (Graham and James play with Magic Cards. Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Thu 02:00 PM PST (1:40 from now).
Omega117: but will we be overclocking it until it runs hot enough to evaporate the pool?
AdmiralMemo: Awwwwwwww yeah
accountmadeforants: Use a Radeon as your second graphics card, to show you're impartial :)
austinoickle: @TXC2 me as well, it was almost disappointing
Omega117: but can it play crysis?
The_FlyingDutchman: 1200too lottle RGB
ritchards: sound card?
Laurreth: Whisle, of course it would be like that :-/ Get a hub and screw it under your desk.
The_FlyingDutchman: too little
AdmiralMemo: Add in secondary hard drives?
djcaptainnacho: Missing RGB
TehAmelie: but will it run Crysis?
TStodden: Can it Play Minecraft IN Minecraft?
austinoickle: but why no ehternet card?
AdmiralMemo: No OS
Laurreth: when you turn it on it'll be R because it's a black-body radiator
AdmiralMemo: LOL
eDRoaCH: the real challenge of building a pc is figuring out where to put the 300 usb devices you have
SilmarHS: Didn't explode DansGame
austinoickle: PFFT rookie numbers
dr0ne00000: @Omega117 nothing can play Crysis duh
accountmadeforants: Republic of Gaming is Asus's #EPICGAMER brand
StarShock2002: thumb drive
The_FlyingDutchman: OC the heck out it now
AdmiralMemo: Will it Run? Crysis
Whisle: @Laurreth i just WANT USB-C on my PC, I dont need it (yet) :D Maybe i'll just build a new PC with a new case \o/
TXC2: "will it run"
BloodnBullets: crysis is still a hard ask
TStodden: No virus scanner? You Daredevil!
evilspoons983: if it's showing the ROG logo *and* the windows logo during boot, you don't want to turn that off
AdmiralMemo: ALL the more
evilspoons983: that's the "integrated boot" or whatever microsoft calls it
The_FlyingDutchman: 35FPS? no way
djcaptainnacho: LOL
austinoickle: MOAR GPUS
movexig: That's the best we got yet
MistahFixIt: SLI not that great actually
The_FlyingDutchman: is it running 4K ultra?
MistahFixIt: (Not a lot is actually programmed to take advantage of SLI configuration)
devil_dan: That was the CPU test.
austinoickle: you didn't use an SLI bridge
dr0ne00000: dat FPS
TXC2: Very clearly just playing the video at double speed
AdmiralMemo: Like, we can't even see the FPS
djcaptainnacho: Still should be like 240
Whisle: i switched from SLI to single-card because SLI just caused problems :|
austinoickle: WHAT
austinoickle: 30fps?
evilspoons983: I had SLI with GTX 680s and it worked on about 10% of games
austinoickle: plebs

Jake_the_guy: is it bricked? oh no
TXC2: Halt and catch fire
Whisle: throw it out the window
austinoickle: its done... rip
dr0ne00000: change the date
dangerous_safety: just add more mineral oil
TStodden: Throw out the GPU's
EvilBadman: download more RAM
SpacePotato01: Install the most powerful PSU and the most heat generating parts and no fans or thermal paste and see if you can make it burn.
cardinalwiggles: factory reset?
Thandres: ever forward!
Whisle: factory reset?
SajuukSjet: unplug/plug in the gpus?
djcaptainnacho: Factory reset
Amyyy: have you tried installing linux?
The_FlyingDutchman: safe mode would work
siciliandefense21: $5500 massive paperweight. Bravo James
TXC2: what I would do IRL is Cry deeply :P
Mister_BlueSky: Computer = Over. Damage = Very Yes.
Zath_: Take out graphics cards and put them back in?
7gorobei: new hard drive reinstall os?
dr0ne00000: you should have dual bios
StarShock2002: factory reset?
Omega117: and this is why i will never overclock
Mister_BlueSky: "But I got all the best parts!"
djcaptainnacho: In bios
dr0ne00000: @Omega117 coward

Hulyen: lrrHAM
Whisle: (IRL)
cardinalwiggles: have you tried compressed air? to blow out the bad settings?
TXC2: the system works Kappa
Kivipaperisakset: Wow, all you need is INFINITE MONEY!
PhoenixMelior: Bullet Hell? So it's Touhou time?
Orichlepidopter: Did you unplug it and plug it back int?
Omega117: throw a bunch of money at the problem
ritchards: just bounce the parts back to the library
Bezekric: i mean this is pretty accurate... three 2070s and one 2080 have crapped themselves out on me so far ^^;;
TheAinMAP: katesChicken
Nightvalien28: it is tohou time PhoenixMelior
Hulyen: so realistic!
enkiraven: I mean, in theory that's not technically wrong...
Omega117: liquid nitrogen cooling
Orichlepidopter: GPU water block?
Garrub: buy some watercooling Kappa
AdmiralMemo: Yes water cool it
enkiraven: poor water on it!
The_FlyingDutchman: custom waterlooop?
TheOtherTrevor: submerge in oil
Doc_Rider: Yeah, add some custom cooling.
TXC2: not better, just more
SilmarHS: You should have unplugged and replugged before throwing them to the garbage. Ya know. For science
I_Am_Clockwork: run the pc in a freezer
TStodden: I thought it was 17,096
Laurreth: mercury cooling?
siciliandefense21: store in a meatlocker
Garrub: and now its down
Orichlepidopter: Oooh, mineral oil pc in here would be fun. Now with simulated 3 months of drip-drying your components. xD
The_FlyingDutchman: ded
MistahFixIt: Womp Womp
AdmiralMemo: GERD JERB JAMS
ritchards: that's okay, we know how to fix this

sivakrytos: including the graphics cards that crap out on you?

AdmiralMemo: I mean, you could spend 2/3 of the Patreon budget
Garrub: like monitor and keyboard too
Laurreth: oh, people ran phase-change cooling at some point
MistahFixIt: Bits for PC Parts? Kappa
TXC2: dr0ne00000 indeed
lifecharacter: Times for PC Bits?
jordorowsky: alright guys who has $8000 in bits?
dr0ne00000: @Garrub I like what you're thinking
StephenJM81: old CRT monitor
Orichlepidopter: Would one give those bits rapidly... almost like... quick bits? o.0
MistahFixIt: That would be nice, actually
MistahFixIt: Just a motherboard with flashy lights and fupping aelerons
Omega117: so, new patreon tier "give james $8000 for computer overclocking experiments"
eDRoaCH: but stripes makes it faster!
Shamthewow: cheer55 this should get you on your way to that computer
StephenJM81: I am not a huge fan of ASUS MBs, the last one I built was a pain to deal with
MistahFixIt: withOUT, rather
lifecharacter: Give me my plain brick to shove into my computer and cover with other things.
Laurreth: there was that CPU cooler with a small magnetically pumped NaK loop, I wonder if those count as ordnance by now
devil_dan: Air is moving around it.
StarShock2002: the mid b450 boards are pretty good
austinoickle: @Orichlepidopter do I sense a LTT refrence?
StarShock2002: msi
WizardZedd: But how else will people know that you're a hardcore gamer?
Bezekric: It will be moving through the air if you ragequit hard enough
Orichlepidopter: @austinoickle Who me? Never.... >.> <.<
The_FlyingDutchman: some of it is heatsinks, but most is just swagger
Tidom_Kamf: Try searching for either AM4 or b450 / x470
AdmiralMemo: Dear Dr. Paul: When I bought a pre-built PC that had the specs I wanted, I failed to realize that its CD drive was VERTICALLY mounted, so I can't fit the graphics card I want into it.
TXC2: Bits for the PC god
djcaptainnacho: I have a really plain black MSI mobo that is pretty recent
malc: I kinda want to give them a CPU in bits... 486 ;)
Garrub: @AdmiralMemo vertical mounted cd drives are just the least useful cupholders
Laurreth: I miss green mainboards
TheOtherTrevor: Motherboards don't need to look fancy if you don't put a window on every damn computer these days
ritchards: Hi Ben!
TXC2: Hello Ben
WizardZedd: @AdmiralMemo Solution seems simple. Ditch the CD drive. Who uses CDs/DVDs anymore, anyway? >_>

The_FlyingDutchman: says you
Garrub: pshh buying RAM. You could just download some!
Zandivya: Have a stain glass window in your PC?
The_FlyingDutchman: shuriken Ram
TehAmelie: old man yells at cloud dot jpg
TehAmelie: wait that didn't work
WizardZedd: I mean...I think those big shoulderpads on the RAM are actually heat sinks
AdmiralMemo: @WizardZedd I tried that... I can't fit the drive in that way either, due to where all of the power plugs for the MB are.
MistahFixIt: @TXC2 - I would pay SO MUCH money for an Art Deco computer
Orichlepidopter: "Back in my day rams weren't so fancy! And they were simple! And they were made of wood and used to breach the defenses of your enemies!"
Nightvalien28: old man yells at new motherboards
Lord_Hosk: I hate that they keep adding so much plastic to ram that it doesnt fit in the slots sometimes
MistahFixIt: So Much.
devil_dan: You can buy RAM without heat sinks.
djcaptainnacho: Postmodern mobo is just really hard to figure out where everything goes
Whisle: @LoadingReadyRun my RAM has "spiky bits". because of that my cpu-cooler doesnt fit the way i want to....
sir_jack_DB: R G B
Thandres: well to be fair, how often do you look at your ram to be complaining about its looks? :o
Laurreth: now m.2 SSDs that have so many LEDs that they overheat... :-D
CraziestOwl: Do dual channel memory
malc: you can just get RAM without that and pay less :P
austinoickle: my ram is more areodynamic than my car
Falsorrr: the fact that these esthetics designs are making the prices go up is what upsets me
sir_jack_DB: KA CHUNK :P
evilspoons983: on my first computer, the RAM didn't even come on sticks. it was individual socketed chips.
Garrub: So how many fans do you have to add before your case begins hovering?
The_FlyingDutchman: is htere a Radeon VII already ingame?
TehAmelie: ooh, the secret to cloud computing
djcaptainnacho: If video games have taught us anything it's that aesthetics are what costs the most
Omega117: yes we get it, you want to plug your boring grey rectangles into boring grey slots inside your boring grey case that it connected to black and white monitors
austinoickle: RGB RAM
Laurreth: I have a mainboard for a 486 around the house that has the cache as SRAM I think
Zandivya: My SSD are screwed into the back of the case and all the wires run through channels in the back as well. Nice and clean and easy to work with.
Hulyen: chustle Ian would nbe proud of you, Paul
Laurreth: discrete DIP package SRAM
AGiantRoach: oh man i wonder if this has my new case in it!
Orichlepidopter: No window? Won't your CPU get sad?
Garrub: What if instead of a window, you just had a screen showing a hamster running in a wheel?
Gnyrinn: I agree with Paul. One might need to put heat spreaders on RAM, but no one can tell me that the current design for them are the most efficient.
TehAmelie: i want to paint flames on my kidneys, is that wrong?
SilmarHS: But... but... THE SWAG Paul
TheOtherTrevor: That is a very "Get off my lawn" attitude and I couldn't agree more
Omega117: poor cpu needs a view too
jordorowsky: not going for m2?
TXC2: TehAmelie ....yes?
Mister_BlueSky: How will it get the sunlight it needs? seabatTROG
Lord_Hosk: Guy at the memory stick plant walks in... Guys... guys. I was drinking my coffee this morning, and I had an idea. What if we make our Memory be accessed... Not randomly... what if there was an order to it? And thats how OAM was invented and computer speeds increased by 5000%
ADTalks: if you're looking inside your computer more often than you are upgrading... you're doing something wrong
TheOtherTrevor: No, the thing with the spikes is the wireless router
Orichlepidopter: I bet, honestly, you'd be really into sleeper PC's. Ancient PC's stuffed with cutting edge hardware, but you can't tell from the outside.
rewrtsosas: Cooling paste?
djcaptainnacho: That's like having different mountains in your burn deck to spite people
lectrican_man: how graphically intensive is this game?
lifecharacter: Is there a freeplay mode to just build PCs?
AdmiralMemo: Yeah, that'd be neat
TXC2: shows you how pointless expensive parts are no?
movexig: Don't eat the thermal paste.
dangerous_safety: the only times you should be looking inside your computer is cleaning, upgrading, or something is wrong
Garrub: Whats the most potato pc you can build in this game?
TXC2: lifecharacter yeap, it's what we're playing now
evilspoons983: @lifecharacter that's what they're doing now
lifecharacter: Ahh, missed that.
CraziestOwl: Turn rtx off
CraziestOwl: Haha
austinoickle: RTX on
Zandivya: Working in ancient PC cases sucks. They made the things of razor blades. I have actual scars from working on those things.
SilmarHS: @LoadingReadyRun Paul, will the other 5 Guild Pauls arrive during War of the Spark?
Laurreth: razor blades are why I only use Noctua coolers any more, they debur their crap
AntiCrepuscular: Amusingly the fan noise from your ingame PC is coming from my right speaker, balancing out the noise from my actual PC :D
evilspoons983: "the 90s" didn't deburr their crap, making sleeper PCs difficult
StarShock2002: I think I start at the 6th gen i7
evilspoons983: they had pentium/celerons based on the current generation CPU cores
ritchards: just download 3d benchmark for that computer?
creasehearst: you COULD just install 3dmark on your current PC and run it :P
TheOtherTrevor: But how will you stream the blue screen?
StarShock2002: Can get close the 6700 is similar to the 4790 then match the gpu
Tidom_Kamf: I mean they have a Node 202 there
Tidom_Kamf: thats pretty small
CraziestOwl: It might crash your computer
dangerous_safety: time for an impromptu lrrtech stream?
TehAmelie: literally all i want from a computer case is low price, low weight and zero unnecessary lights or anything that uses power. but that's jsut me
TXC2: it's on sale for $4.49
AntiCrepuscular: mini ITX or micro ATX?
pugz412: The demo works
Garrub: ^
StarShock2002: mini itx
AntiCrepuscular: ah, mini ITX
pugz412: You don't need to buy it
AGiantRoach: i think having a case with good build quality and an aesthetic you enjoy is important.
evilspoons983: my only fractal design complaint is the power LED is too bright on mine

adamjford: @Pal_Friendpatine Turns out Canada is not one single climate :P
sivakrytos: places that _are_ equipped for snow do the dumptruck thing too

evilspoons983: yeah, the big ol' ocean there moderates the climate plus being so far south helps too

evilspoons983: extreme cold warning the whole time
PhoenixMelior: yeah, sounds like February
TehAmelie: actually it's barely freezing right now. i just got used to complaining about the cold
Twinklebees: I was walking to my client earlier this week and was very briefly confused by the duck I saw walking on water...
Twinklebees: Before I realised the lake was frozen over
PhoenixMelior: lol
TehAmelie: clear ice huh? that takes a lot of cold
PhoenixMelior: poor duck
Twinklebees: I think I was actually just tired and forgot that water can exist in a solid form
TehAmelie: ah
PhoenixMelior: ah, but would you ever guess it can also be gaseous?
GenericHerooo: xD
Twinklebees: Though I doubt a duck would be too happy on a lake of steam
PhoenixMelior: update: my nose is getting stuffy, I think a small cold may in fact be setting in.
Twinklebees: :<
Twinklebees: Hopefully it's not too bad.
PhoenixMelior: I don't see why it would be terrible
PhoenixMelior: probably just the shock from going to 24C to -25C
Earthenone: that is quite the fluxuation yeah
