      I hate the fact that your PSU is sitting really close with pc's motherboard..
      It will be better if you got a custom alloy case, much bigger but same with regards to the design ☺️

                        Linus i like your channel and videos but your click bait titles and pointless trying to bash at Apple doesn’t make any sense, especially when you cannot achieve what they do.
                        Your build doesn’t even get close to what the upcoming Mac Pro will have to offer: that beast will have a max of 4 GPU and 1.5 terabyte of ram, plus custom hardware modules like the afterburner card.
                        And this is not a fanboy comment, I appreciate hardware from both worlds, it’s just idiotic to try and spit at Apple’s achievement as you do

                                  Hi Linus!!!
                                  I would just like to say that I absolutely love you and your YouTube channel and I was just going to ask you if you could help me out a bit here...
                                  I saved up around £7000-£7500 for my DREAM PC SETUP, but I recently got it stolen. It was going to be the most amazing setup and a MASSIVE upgrade from my shitty laptop😂.

                                  I can send you the specs just as an idea...

                                  Overall this whole situation sucks and I tried to get my money but it literally got completely stolen and I have no idea where it is or how to get it back. :(

                                  I’m just emailing you though to ask if you could help me get my dream setup because I saved up for SO LONG and all my money just got taken away. 

                                  Honestly even getting a reply from you would be amazing. 

                                  I hope you could maybe consider helping me out! 

                                  Yours sincerely,

                                    Yeah, I checked out the Ridge Wallet's link. Very slick. But the price...get back to me when the price drops at least 90 dollars- then it will actually be worth buying. I have far better things to do with that money than a damn wallet that should not exceed 25 dollars MAX. Sorry Linus, that's a fail for me. Your pushing Private Internet Access worked though- Excellent service and an awesome price...unlike this. I pulled up the (hideous) windows 10 calculator, and figured out I can get PIA for 3.488 years for the price of this

I was also wondering will he had one of the cards running at PCIE 3.0 x8 due to how that board is set up only slot 1 and 2 are true x16 the others share the band with with the top two when used meaning the m.2 cards wont run at its full speeds.
