      @StableEntropy In my book the greatness Jay showed was in his ability to laugh at, and entertain the few shortcomings on his side. But both men are great minds, show supreme ability, and keep us interested in bettering ourselves. With so much wrong with the systems, they both had wins, just didn't hit the finish at the same time.

    I would love to see more of this! It feels like a true "nerd-sport", in a really great way. And there are a bunch of different riffs you could do on this format, so much potential!!

  • farmerfb

    Yeah i couldn't watch this video with the audio garble from Austin .

  • Qardo

    Reminds me of my time going to State for Skills USA. Which was an education challenge for trade schools across the country. I went to state for Missouri and played 8th overall after it was said and done. And know what? After a decade from me going there. I am quite proud of placing 8th out of hundreds of others for computers and Tech Support. So yeah. It was fun regardless.

    To be honest at a certain point the technical issues became highly amusing... like watching a train wreck in slow motion. The silent ad break was the cherry on top.

  • subjectsigma925

    Steve overclocks his GPU by dragging all the sliders to the max lol. I love it.

  • Rolf Bjorn

    Technically, if the tech disassembles and rebuilds successfully the client's PC that had problem, he solved all the problems. Not knowing what exactly were the problems is not a failure. Especially if it's quicker.

  • AuroraCamo

    1:41:30 the CPU cooler is upside down! Lol

  • sloshappy2

    Now this is a great, old LTT video. Do more of these kind of videos and less linus flex of what he owns...

  • Alex Gruia

    Both of them look a bit stressed :D. I really liked Steve's approach, also the bios rest to defaults...dude, that's the first thing you do..a bit shocked that Jay missed that.

  • moltenbullet

    Exactly how I would have dealt with a deliberately troll PC (or something built by an amateur and doesn't work). Re-build it from scratch.

    God dang it Austin. Your audio sucks donkey a$$! Y'all need to check that crap before going live.

  • kaeota

    Linus: there are a total of 9 problems with the systems Me: 10 if you count Austins mic ffs. can't watch, fix audio and reup please.

    Failing to roast someone by saying "hey you should do comedy, you should do roasts" has got to be one of the most ironic things I've seen in a while.

  • Tezon

    Jay Cheated! He opened it up before Steve, bad boi! Haha. I love this kinda challenge, fun to see all the tech guys I actually go to for info. Really fun and good job Steve and Jay. Thanks for a fun video! Hope to see more!

  • DJ GotGame

    What's with the shitty mic, Austin?

  • petemcauliffe1983

    Why did Steve apply tape to the back of the motherboard?

  • King Reese

    We need another one of these for Jay And steve to find out what the hell is wrong with Austin's mic.

  • shaneclipse97

    Solo can someone answer this... Did they never install thermal paste and somehow ran these benchmarks and didn't have thermal issues?

    • shaneclipse97

      Lol literally after I typed this they began discussing jays thermal paste hard to think j didn't notice the aio ramping to full speed because out of the box it should have a thermal default plan that would ramp on auto

    Why is Stewe putting the CPU cooler on the side of the case and not on top, which he has told people himself is the correct position

  • Mark Tang

    It is the same thing I usually do when I trouble shoot these thing is to to check all connector, screw mount , like freshly install, just to make sure no grounding issue etc... get thing should work.

    10/10 this is an amazing idea with even better people. Donating to a charity is an amazing prize.

  • Rist

    Steve knew better than to trust anything Linus sent him at face value without inspecting it personally Steve obviously never watched a Linus tech video life or would know better, but at the same time he could've learned how to install a LAN driver I'm sure Linus has a video on it someplace.

  • Rist

    I'd just like to congratulate Steve for knowing how to install a LAN driver.

  • Matthew Fraser
    Matthew Fraser

    I think the assessment on the 2 Technician is we bit unfair because no scenario was put out to them both about the computer and what type user competence to expect, you said that jayzd2cents did not check there was thermal paste on cpu, no one would check for that unless a user came up to you and said i tried build a computer and does not work. Only then would you consider checking everything

  • GeneralFresh

    come on steve!

    • GeneralFresh

      oh bummer it was in august lol -.-

  • LSDGamingesport

    Watching it on my off day really enjoyed it... awesome sportsmanship good troubleshooting and all for charity Wow.....

    Much prefer Ltt over that fat old man, actually over both I can't stand watching them. One reminds me of a heavy metal rocker and the other needs to just give up already, grey, fat, old, out of breath, and kinda dumb tbh (jay) Spend time with his kids already

    The hidden challenge, it would seem, was how to create a smooth and error free broadcast that would work across the internet. Can someone please make this possible? Apple, Microsoft, Webex, Citrix, Someone? (ear buds, sound and audio, etc) We're in 2020 and even the top of the line and best of best is far below what we need as consumers. If there's one thing that Covid has shown us is how terrible our communications systems truly are and how thirsty we are to have the "right stuff". Can someone take on this challenge?

Does Amazon Prime Day Suck?
