  1. Hey i go to Philippines alot its butifall there in Cebu

  2. 35 minutes of news and the rest donation things?…. common guyz step it up..

  3. This show is so quiet, it's kind of ridiculous. I have to turn my pc up to 100 and then turn everything else down except this window so that I can hear them properly. I don't know how, but I will figure out how to prove it to you.

  4. You guys havent got sloppy drunk in awhile. You should.

  5. 16 cores means nothing if AMD can't close the clock speed gap with Intel.

  6. Yeah, I'm really sure an 1170 would have 16GB of VRAM lol They probably benched a Titan V and just changed the GPU string. Also, they allege an 8 core, 16 thread i9 9900K is going to have a 95 watt TDP? Bullshit. This is all so fake lmao

  7. i love when you go the the gym snd you live in so cal when its 100 degrees outside and you almost pass out

  8. I wish Paul did this alone or found a different cohost. Kyle is like a child.

  9. my 1080ti and 8700k scored 26,199 so its not faster then an overclocked 1080ti system we need to see the actual graphics score to know for sure. In fact my 1080 system also scores in the 20k area on a 8700k so it possibly beats a 1080.

  10. What are you talking about? Theyve already said ryzen 3 will work on all am4 motherboards.. the power delivery might not be there for a 16core but it will boot

  11. I've learned so much from both of these guys and watched Paul's beginners guid build I don't know how many times haha. Thank both of you guy's! You guys are my favorite! I can't wait to get my first build going. Now to start getting the components piece by piece

  12. Not sure where your Newcastle Brown (Dog) comes from, it used to be decent but they use shitty water over here now (U.K, Durham) and it's just a mass produced beer.

  13. On the topic of random people giving you food… At our state fair, it's common to park in peoples yards, they'll charge $5-$10 depending on how close they are to the fair grounds. Anyway… one year my wife and I parked in this older asian lady's yard. When when came back at night to leave, she came to the door and called me over. Handed me 2 freshly made spring rolls, just for saying thanks for parking there I guess? I ate them, and they were delicious!

  14. Ryzen 3xxx series will be up to 12 cores propably and 3xx vs 4xx chipsets don't have that many differences, so I believe that it will be compatible with some features off, like XFR2 with 3xx chips and the 2xxx Ryzens.

  15. lol. "joe would have seen my dick" do american dicks disolve into thin air when their seen by another man?

  16. A photograph of a screen makes perfect sense if the company locks down its computers. You don't want an electronic trail if you are breaking NDA.

    Moreover, the name may be there if everything is ready for the release and Nvidia just delayed launch to empty Pascal stock.

  17. Oh god how tf are you pronouncing Tobago?!?! It hurts my soul

  18. Who decided what price the market can sustain, and how did the company try to keep prices high? Why do they care what people pay after they sell the products to distributers or retailers?

  19. Hey Paul! Stumbled upon a channel that seems to be uploading your videos as their own… Not 100% sure if you are affiliated with them or not but wanted to bring it to your attention. The name of the channel in question is "Crimson Skies". They uploaded a video today of one of your PC builds. They did put this statement "All content in this video is protected either under Fair Use or Creative Commons Licensing" but I was under the impression that you had to be doing your own content about it, like a review or something. This is not the case here. Might be worth investigating. Keep up the great videos and love for Tech!

    **Correction** They did put a link to your page. I must have missed it initially.

  20. Stream looks great! Keep up the good work guys.
    FYI i never comment on videos.

  21. The country is Trinidad and Tobago(toe bah go) are two islands off the course of Venezuela. The large island is Trinidad and the small island is Tobago. The really confusing part is the Port of Spain is on Trinidad. The whole area is really confusing actually. Grenada is one island, however St. Vincent and the Grenadines are about 6 islands(if I remember right) where St. Vincent is the big island, and the Grenadines are the small islands between St. Vincent and Grenada. They're all part of the Windward Islands.

  22. You are the smoke up my ass. And my go to guys on comps. F the other guys are lame compared to you two

  23. First time I've heard Paul refer to wifeysauce as wifeysauce lol
