      cool people, they're humble and know what they're doing, smart, right answers and true, great video... almost watching all 2 hours.. only skipped a little, yes that good

    2. ChaosHusky

      I've been doing that exact thing for years now.. Dang, if only i'd been in a position to make a company doing it! Haha, story of my life, but its great to see it in action! I'd started in computers and electronics at the end of the 80s, early 90s but didn't make it to PC until 1998! And what my mum was sold for me definitely wasn't what we specified for the cost. The next PC was built by me for someone else strangely before i built one for myself lol

      I was watching this and when the whole "cooling" part came.... nothing was mentioned about the "benchmarking" office where all the systems were performing the benchmarks..... they were ALL test bench setups. The thing is.... they are benchmarking on "open air" systems. I say this because I learned quite a few years ago that the BEST way to cool a system is to not box it up in an enclosed space..... like a CPU tower box.... Ran my systems for a long with with no sides on the "box", essentially almost open air. People think "more fans" solution to solve high heat. Running "open air" I only have 2 small fans running.... CPU and Graphics (I guess 3 cuz graphics card has 2). Open Air is better than being in the "box" with sides removed. Being open air you basically use "natures fan". Basic thing EVERYONE should know is hot air rises and cool air sinks. Being open air, the heat produced from the components is pulled off by the heat sinks and the fan blowing on the sink pulls cooler air in and over the heatsink, pushing the heated air out. At that point is where people have all these fans to "pull out" the hot air building up on the inside of the "box"...... Being open air you now have hot or warm air, where does it GO?? It RISES up and AWAY from the computer NATURALLY and it AUTOMATICALLY is replaced by the cooler air that sinks. Remove hot air and cool air naturally replaces the air around the components. Every now and then, just blow out the dust from the sinks (because they will collect it a little faster in open air vs the enclosed "box"). I know they said they test it b4 shipping out but..... the benchmarks in the office are lacking that "control" because hardware will run better open air vs in a "hot box".

      Apple is a lost cause. It is a control freak just like Microsoft.

    5. K McG

      I've bought 3 boxes from them and they are AWESOME!!!!

    6. Chris Banana

      @1:24:00 Yeah removing the cover affects it a lot. I would suggest you put a conductive piece of paper on the plastic. The paper would change temps which your FLIR could see.... Those simple little colored dots at hobby stores work great.

      AS a cybersecurity and forensics services company owner, the fact you didn't lay out what you brought home is shameful! lol. Please, PLEASE properly protect your asset and data from the prevailing risks out there today Dustin. Happy to discuss if you need a few pointers.

    11. Jonathan Fielding

      Dustin, great video. I am although a little disappointing at your level of electrical/computer literacy. I realize that your background of engineering isn't the same as mine (electrical engineering), so that's not your specialty, but there were a lot of terms you didn't understand that are fairly standard. I'd suggest you watch a bunch of Linus's Techquickie videos. All in all another great video man!

    12. Michael Allen

      This guy needs to contact Ford. The Bosch software and hardware used to diagnose these exceptionally complex CAN BUS equipped vehicles is laughable at best.

    13. Nathaniel Stickley

      BTW, Advection is the transport of thermal energy (or material) by the bulk flow of a fluid. Convection is the specific case when advection occurs naturally, due to a density difference, which is in turn caused by a temperature difference. Since most desktop computers make use of a fan to force the air to move, they are not primarily cooled via convection. Less common, silent, fanless machines are typically cooled via convection and radiative cooling.

      Best thread to core analogy is the McDonald's drive through with two ordering lanes, and one serving lane. It allows the processor to access information that is already read into memory, rather than to wait for the new data to be written into one queue.

      I used to put PCs together from the UK computer fair rallies. The problem was that some components would not be fully compatible. You go back to the mother board supplier and he would say it was the graphics card. Then you take the graphics card back to the supplier and he say its the motherboards fault ! So system building became a nightmare. The builders here test their systems out so you're going to end up with fast stuff all working as intended and no phone calls to China. Thanks for your dedication. It would have been nice to know if finally you did end up spending less time editing ? , Or was the benefit just 10% after all that because the software running just one core was indeed your bottleneck ! You put in alot of effort for that nugget of critical information ! infact

      I am watching this on my mineral oil computer. Puget systems supplied my radiator which is still working great. I wish I could've gotten one of those motherboard supports, funny enough I ended up using the side of my old computer as a mount. I absolutely love this video because it's reminding me of the time I built this computer 7 years ago. The best computer I've ever had inspired by Puget. thank you Destin from smarter every day.

      This reminds me of the time when I was a Systems Analyst. Where you would go around all the departments of a company, and ask them what they did, and what they would like a computer system to do. Then when you had acquired sufficient information, you would design a tailor made system, present it to various board members, and if they were happy, you'd set your programmers to work their, very boring, magic. Then arrange for the equipment to be installed, start the system up, with fingers crossed. After a few tweaks here and there, leave it up to them to switch from paper to computer run systems. Knowing full well that it wouldn't be too long before they wanted an upgrade. This could have been avoided in the first place if they weren't so economic in the design stage. Nowadays you would just buy something that far exceeds your requirement, just in case you might need the extra power. Why not... it's so much cheaper these days.

      First you stop using computers that take 12 friends sister changes for one process and start using apple chips right now I bet the latest Apple with the latest and one technology chips I’ll take care of you. Yes I know everything about parity hard drives hot swapping hard drives multiple processors and all that but processor efficiency how cool you can keep those processors as part of the game too. Something that started over 40 years ago it’s finally coming to fruition!

      14:30 This is fascinating. Especially with the news (from Numenta talking with Steve Omohundro) that GPT3 took $12M to train, but runs on a cell phone. How many smaller "special use case" ML programs desperately need the efficiencies offered by these people? My guess is that Numenta, Kindred AI, etc. could use workstations designed by these guys, and would be able to "jump ahead" one year in productivity. (But what if I'm wrong, and they'd be able to jump ahead 2 years? At some point it becomes "worth it.")

    59. Theophilus Jedediah

      After starting a custom computer building shop in 1997 I spent 14 months and $9,000.00 on a 8 x 333mhz Pentium processor server that specialized in graphics heavy scientific calculations in Windows NT4 which ran our network at lightning speed until 2015. 128 Mb of RAM was the top limitation. The motherboard weighed 18 lbs! My current new computer by comparison is a huge disappointment. Thanks for showing us that there is someone out there to help me not have to blow another year of my life to have a great computer!

      a computer should be used, not heard or seen. no flashing colored lights, absolutely not. it's really stupid how hot some of those lights get, and it's doing nothing but distracting from what a computer should be used for. quiet computers are underrated.

      It's such a weird feeling as an experienced computer tech watching this video (in a good way) that everything they say, is right. They don't bend the truth, their marketing is basically non-existent. This is THE WAY to tailor a PC to the customers'needs. This is how it SHOULD BE done. That's professional quality control. I'm so glad, that after many "arguments" with customers on why did I do it this way or that way, or why I recommend choosing this or that specific component is also beeing confirmed by others in the industry. I'm so glad that this video is out there, so people can see behind the scenes of computer systems engineering. Thank you Smarter Every Day for constantly delivering us this awesome content. And also thank you Puget Systems for doing what you do. Their guides and tests, and publications are really accurate.

      They are lucky in the following sense: they position themselves in a market where telling the truth is the goal. I live in Japan and I enjoy Japan because there is generally no tolerance for bad service. But in many businesses, you can only stay in business if you at least lie by omission. These guys have a business where this does not pay in the short, mid or long term.

      Hey sir this video was awesome and informative. Long shot but could you make a video on you using this new computer and editing your footage. It would be so cool to see your behind the scenes.
