Get one of the biggest CRT monitors you can find and retrofit an OLED into it, then use the rest of the space inside to hide a modem, router and NAS. A whole home networking setup and a desktop PC in just 2 pieces, 2 very bulky, beige pieces.

Make another sleeper PC where you fit the PC inside those bulky old monitors

maybe have the glass frosted with an intel 8086 logo left clear and add blue led lighting inside to back-light it

Shame on you intel for sending a retro PC without PS2 connectors

I would love to see a new layout keyboard in the original beige color like the one you showed in the video, as soon as that came out it brought everything together and looked sooo much better the entire setup

Get the Model M plugged in, custom retro shroud for the 1080ti, retro looking fans and cable sleeves, tan wheel mouse optical w/ hyperglides and tan paracord, and somehow get a modded CRT monitor case. And some nice white LED strips.

Zhaochen He (18 hours ago)
It's sweet but without a CRT, it's forever just shy of perfect. Recommend adapting an old but high quality CRT (such as those used at graphics workstations), or the last generation of HD compatible Sony Trinitrons. See other youtube videos on "Gaming with a CRT".

Intel said the i7-8086K made sense since its an original IBM 5150??? The 5150 was shipped with an Intel 8088!!! The predecessor to the 8086. Aka not x86 architecture. Wow... How Intel themselves even forget their history. Pretty sad. If it was an 5170 aka a PC AT which looks completely different, those had 286 processors in them.

Ah yes. Cooling technology may have advanced- but if ya ain't got the dough, ya ain't got the silence. *watches the monitor unboxing* What the hell have ya done... *watches the computer unboxing* Oh, for the luvva- Retro, huh. Sheesh. :/
Technical guruji has more subs :) :)
Aaron Lochard (1 day ago)
Sorry if this has been said. The 5150 came with a 8088 processor and a model F keyboard which had a much different key arrangement than the model M that came later.

This video went seriously downhill after the 2:50 mark. My suggestion for what to do with the computer, is take all of that rubbish out of the middle, and rebuild to the same spec as the original machine.

it's official..... Linus is a grandpa
Hijink (1 day ago)
Water cooling with hard tubing on both the GPU and CPU. As well as trade the 1080ti for a 2080 ti. Maybe find another motherboard that has more of the original green aesthetic. Then maybe try and reskin the monitor to get a better display like IPS or 165+ hz on VA

I don't like the monitor. But that tricked out case... Holy jeez. I'd ADORE that on my desk. If they sold that... Oh man I'd buy it. I'd pay up to 200$ for it.

Jesus Linus you think the way they set this up is cool you should see my trs-80 model 2 build. wait till i eventually finish it the way i want to with custom acrylic lid and light up trs-80 logo on the side. :) in mine the 8" floppy drive is converted to a 2.5" docking station by using a stack of 8" floppies as a tray for the hard drives or ssd's the original keyboard i rewired to work on usb while still keeping the original din 5 connector. i even kept the original io panel and connected panel mount cable to so you could connect the pc to stuff. even the fuse port thing is still in use :) to get room inside i replaced the crt with a lcd. im looking into getting the crt front glass cut off by someone so it will look better in front. :)

How did no one comment on the GIANT DLP tv in the background at the very beginning of the video.

I love how the very first thing we see is Linus ignoring the "fragile" and "this side up" warning on the crate, and tilts it and proceeds to bang it around the floor!

10:40 *Instead of being a useless Dickbutt on camera, How about you EXPLAIN how one SHOULD Pause Windows Updates for 35 days at a time if they want CONSISTENT performance at any given time!* Seriously, I ALWAYS pause for 35 days, once those days are up, Windows Updates everything, and then you can pause for 35 more days!

10:30 I have installed DOOM locally at over 120 MB/sec, but then I have an 8700k clocked at 5 GHZ all core, and 4.7 GHZ Cache.

Dear Linus: DONT mess with that system! Its cool as is. I think the idea of making another sleeper or upgrading the one you already have is a much better idea. Leave well enough alone on this one!

I was thinking "that thing needs a Model M" ... but now I'm wondering why you went back to the other keyboard. Anyway, love the details, especially the little stuff like the power switch.

I think that you guys should take the glass and engrave an intel logo, but in the e, there should be a dickbutt.

I'd like to see an useful Optiplex 945
BerserkJeffy (2 days ago)
tbh one of the main appeals for a sleeper build, for me, is that there are no showboat windows. No one should know what's inside unless you have the case open. That's not to say the acrylic is bad looking or anything. It's nice. I'd just personally try to take that off and make it look closer to the 5150. Also that monitor. A TN panel? Fix it.

paint the internal components to make them look more retro too! !!!! and keep it as a permanent system for the living room set !!!!

Erebus (2 days ago)
make the dials on the monitor actually work, and make the little levers on the floppy drives control fan speed or lighting. Slap some old heatspreaders etc to make the components look retro aswell.

Not my personal tastes but it still had me grinning like a loon throughout. It's one of those things thats inherently cool regardless.
Fit the cover onto another monitor?
