New shop space\equipment video, and this uploaded within a relatively short time span of each other. Coincidence? I think not!

Linus could have just labeled it PUZZLE and sent it to Chris Ramsey to have it reassembled

this is the scariest video I have ever watched

Linus is making way too much money... for this video to even exist, or that there was a need for this video.

Water cooling such magnificent piece of engineering was a very, very, very dumb idea. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Have you seen those vids about the mags being bullshit yet?

I would shit my pants if I would do this with my RED :D

This thing will eventually give if they keep doing this.

Don't bother with liquid-cooling the whole thing. Just cool the sensor with peltier, and then cool that instead.

I'd be scared to touch the hardware lol

I think linus should watch this video. It's about those RED Mags that he buying for thousands of dollars!

riddle me this Linus, why in the HELL are you going to do an image quality comparison when you're water cooling it? it's not going to look any better or worse

Hey LTT, thoughts on this and part 2 ???

Can't wait for Linus to drop it

Oh I've been in that situation a lot. Worse thing than reassembling something that can only fit one way, is building your own prototype circuit from scratch, calculations and all #Computer&ElectronicEngineer

I know they have outward-facing 3D camera's, but watching this, I am now wondering, if they have inward-facing 3D camera SYSTEMS (I am thinking, you would need at least 4; front, back, left, right and top)... Would be cool if Linus had this kind of setup for when he does stupid sh!t with $40,000+ products and needs to put things back together. ;) He would be able to pan and zoom and virtually see every angle to where stuff goes.
