  • Good luck everyone! The giveaway is open to US and Canada excluding Rhode Island and Quebec (regional sweepstakes laws make global sweepstakes near impossible). We'll post the winner here, in the entry form, and on Newegg social. Enter here:

    • *Sad Quebec noises*

    • *cries in european*

    • Why is rhode island excluded? Quebec makes sense, since it‘s quebec and never conforms but rhode island?

    • Is it open to the Caribbean? specifically Trinidad and Tobago

    • Too Bad am From Philippines and a Fan :(

  • I agree! I didn't want to upgrade my pc when i built but I love my 3700x

  • hmmm

  • I want to win!!

  • Do the reverse, communitys most hated computer

  • Did anyone do the math on how much this would cost to buy at retail?

  • The moment he said she could help was adorable it reminds me of when I was a kid and would ask my dad if I could help him work on a car that was one of my best memories with him it was great father son bonding and one of the reasons I wanted to be a mechanic just like him

  • I'm going to ask the most important question here: Did she get the apples?

  • Okay, I promise I am not a comment bot, this shit actually works and Im glad I can play battlefield 4. It is alittle sketchy but holy shit i am so thankful

  • Gotta say, the nicest part of this video was watching his daughter help and then when Doom Eternal was on he said "This is too violent, you can't watch it". Good Dad moment

  • I Love that Linus' daughter was included in the video. +1 for parent-child bonding, child labor laws not withstanding. 😂

  • I actually dislike RGB. I would pay extra for a device variant that doesn't have RGB when given the option.

  • Also trying to find a 2070 super at msrp is just as difficult as finding a 30 series..

  • Those aren't acronyms. If you can't pronounce it, it's an initialism. MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) is an acronym. FBI is an initialism.

  • Best rated *One person rated this product as five eggs / stars*

  • Holy crap! That's my PC case! It's not bad of a case but I felt after having it for the first few weeks the novelty definitely wore off and now I long for a normal case thats not wide and bulky.

  • why are these giveaways not for Indian viewers when u r earning money off of them too?

  • Case looks like a printer

  • They should build with the worst reviewed parts.

  • i own this case, and i couldn't help but yell you're doing it wrong on the hdd nubs

  • Noot noot

  • can i win it even though im from Philippines?

  • the way linus talks to his kids it really cute

  • 3:18 sounding like kermit thee frog ;/

  • Your daughter is adorable

  • Imagine not having the matching type

  • lol imagine getting an incompatible cpu/motherboard

  • Why don't you guys ever consider the GTX 1070 a good budget option, it rips wth. and you can get one for under 200

  • WHAT A CUTIE !! 😍😍😭😍

  • MSI shady af I'm not buying them again

  • Dangit, if only I were one year older... I've been wanting to have a PC since the last 3 years


  • I'm suspicious about that case...

  • Why pick that case? I can only think of a few reasons, a 1 time purchase, good cooling, and not having space restrictions. I like it but it seems a little overkill unless you're constantly changing components or really want good air ventilation (maybe?)

  • Fhdhdjdbdhbddhbddbdbdhhd

  • PC Nerd Dad Jokes: Daughter "Can I have some apples?" Dad "No, we're more of a PC household."

  • Hey guys a lot of you maybe already heard the story of KoolKing Logan. He is an awsome kid who just beat cancer and his dream is to become a youtuber. He really makes quality content yesterday alone he got 50k new subscriber as the internet is banding together to help him out. The only thing he needs is a proper setup. Maybe LTT could help out there and hook him up with proper equipment. It would be nice if this post could get some traction so the right people read this. Here is a link to his channel:

  • "don't quote me on that" linus - 2020

  • I've noticed review weirdness about motherboards, and I think the problem is complicated. For one, if there is a "fault" in the PC, it's almost always the motherboard; motherboards are almost always the main point of failure on a PC right after the disk drives. Furthermore, when it comes time to upgrade, people get kind of ticked off that they have to upgrade the motherboard as well to get the most out of the next gen CPU (which is the boat I am in with my X470 knowing I have to upgrade to get the most out of Ryzen 3000 or 5000 CPUs) which gets a lot of people to write bad reviews over it's lack of longevity in their motherboard.

  • i WIN !

  • What's super funny is I fell down that "Herd Mentality" PC gravity well just picking parts from Microcenter that were on sale and looked like they had the best performance per price and chose the same CPU, SSD, but 3600MHz memory (clocked at 3200MHz for stability and compatibility). My motherboard isn't nearly as expensive, but most reviews that I have read say that motherboard price doesn't really matter vs. performance unless you plan to do overclocking which I don't. I went with an AIO watercooler (which is actually a little bit loud at full load) instead of a heatsink fan and my power supply is only 80+ white certified 600W but gets the job done. My case isn't nearly as nice or spacious. Neither can my graphics card hold a candle to the 2070 let alone anything more powerful than that, but I don't play a lot of new or demanding games, so it's not like I need to spend extra money there. It's nice to see how gentle Linus was with the 4Tb HDD as he was struggling to "patiently" install it- lol, jk.

  • Holy crap your daughter is adorable wtf

  • Dam how I'd like to win that pc

  • Anyone know why the black NH-D15 is $200 more than the normal one...?

  • Actually a decent outcome

  • thats rad. i didnt even know those cases existed

  • Man MSI motherboards are TRASH both of them failed in less than 5 months for me

  • “This game’s violent, darling. You can’t watch.” Well he might not be good at not dropping things but at least he’s a good parent

  • It’s funny how a child can build a better pc than me.

  • I hope no one actually builds this. Just because each part individually is popular does not mean this is a good build for the money. Not terrible, but you can do better.

  • Well i hope i coud win the pc our gpu beacouse i just chilling whit 8 year old laptop

  • Awesome Video Linus, Can't wait to see who wins this Very Nice Pc! Cheers.


  • If I win, my kids would have a better PC than me. And thats okay with me.

  • His daughter's pure joy. I love it, good dad.

  • European brothers, this is treason by Linus. The giveaway is only available to Americans and Canadians. WHAT TRICKERY IS THIS?

  • This video ruled

  • Give me that stock cooler now

  • I shoved an older build into an XB for a chonky HTPC and it's lovely for that purpose, sits comfy in my TV stand 👌

  • That hot swap bay screams for a used M1015 (or any other SAS2008 SAS HBA card) so you can get full SAS support and proper hot swapping at the very cheap.

  • 15:39 The writer of German subtitles translated doom eternal as double mother? Wth

  • sad i wish i had a computer like this but i dont have enough money for one

  • 14:39 Ah yes a dad joke, literally

  • Sponsored by newegg? No thanks, i am out.

  • im an essential worker and got zero help in the changes of this economy, i would love an upgrade from my 1660ti

  • Me: tries to enter giveaway new egg: "US and Canada only"

  • So Newegg isnt realllllllyyyyy out of stock of 3080s.....

  • when you are done with the 3700, you can send it my way :D ... maybe with that cooler too.

  • > Linus's daughter comes in MA HEART, MA SOUL.

  • Hello LTT, I'm a big fan of yours from Poland. I like to share with you the PC that i configured with, I also tried this configuration with my local market more than once, using yours guidence, and for now it will be only in dreams area. My dream gaming PC.

  • No one can get their hands on a 3080.. Linus gets one shipped to his door by request. Can I have your life please? :)

  • Linus is autotuned 8:53 thank me later

  • I look forward to building PCs with my daughter to be! My dad and I alway did this growing up! Also a nice rig to win!


  • that 3080 life

  • Reliable and humurous, the kind of resource I'm looking for!

  • I am so grateful to be alive today. My girlfriend saved my life last night. This is a selfie I took in the emergency room after having a severe allergic reaction to almonds. I went into anaphylaxis, meaning my face, my lips, my eyes, my tongue, and my throat all started swelling up rapidly, making it almost impossible for me to breathe. I also had a rash all over my entire body, and I was extremely red. Staying alive had never felt more difficult. At one point, my nasal passage was completely blocked, and it was getting more and more difficult to breathe. They shot me up with Benadryl, steroids, they gave me a breathing tube, and even other stuff that I can’t even remember, and it caused all of the swelling and the rash to go away. Because this was a severe allergic reaction, I need to continue taking steroids and Benadryl for the next week, because it is possible that the allergic reactions could come back at any point over the next week. The steroids and Benadryl make me feel like a zombie, and I really want to take care of my health, so this will be my main focus over the next week. I want to thank my amazing girlfriend, who made the decision to take me to the emergency room the second I started feeling itchy. I was hesitant about going, because I didn’t even want to believe this was actually happening. If it weren’t for my girlfriend driving me to the emergency room only minutes after eating the almonds, there is a good chance that I wouldn’t have made it according to the doctor. This has been without a doubt the hardest few days of my life, but I also look at them as the most important few days of my life. These moments have reminded me about what’s really important in life, and it has made me so grateful to even be here on this earth. I will be prioritizing my health over the next week, and I’ll post updates about how I feel. Thank you all for being patient during these difficult times. This week has been NUTS (too soon for jokes? 😅)

  • Salty Spitton meme A: "How tough are you?" B: "I build a PC" A: "Yeah, so?" B: "With motherboard that's more expensive than the CPU" A: "Right this way Sir"

  • Yay..

  • As a long term owner of the half Xb worse case I have ever got I threw that thing in the trash 😂 it’s shit hot swap broke cable management is shit I could go on

  • Just wandering who won and whoever did how dose it perform

  • I've had my 3700x for about a year now and it has been flawless! No complaints here. It has done everything I've done with it and it had plenty to spare.

  • my boy turned into kermit at 3:17 lol

  • $2200 w/ Louisiana taxes and a wait time at newegg to ask a simple question is 129 minutes. Fuck this. And fuck addiction to gaming.

  • Never expected to see my ugly ass case on this channel but I dig the thing.

  • I learned about that nice Intel 660p SSD, thank you herd!

  • surely, to make a herd mentality pc, you would use the best selling parts, not the best rated?

  • Hello

  • Did you give that thing away yet? I could use a server PC for VR in my living room :]

  • 15:56 "REhhhhh-rrreh-reh-reh-reh-ruhhhehhhh... see ya later" - Linus Sebastian Circa 2020

  • I've seen that case before. My boss built a server for our small business in one of those. I have since upgraded the machine to operate as a Hypervisor machine for several systems. It's a nice case, except that there's NO filters included for such an open design, making it an absolute dust magnet.

  • Good luck everyone! The giveaway is open to US and Canada excluding Rhode Island and Quebec (regional sweepstakes laws make global sweepstakes near impossible). We'll post the winner here, in the entry form, and on Newegg social. Enter here:

  • Linus did you know i have a laptop with i5 3 gen and GEFORCE 610M

  • Crazy a 2070 super is still $570

  • Did he stack a box on top of another box, only to cut away and have to repeat the same box stacking?

  • Kid wants apples, Tyrant puts her to work. How about them apples?

  • I basically have this same setup, it is more than adequate for the average person.

  • Shame I can't buy shit from Newegg since I live in Norway.

  • Pretty cool PC, the only thing I don't agree with is the 300$ Motherboard. There are great ones for about 100$ - 150$

  • i need this card but i live in greece
