We found some super cheap laptop CPUs that have been adapted to work in a desktop... with varying degrees of success.
Buy a BGA to LGA CPU: lmg.gg/8KVW6

To be fair this isn't the first time he's tested a repackaged mobile chip.
Александр Мельников
In your BIOS, find and release microcode for any low-end CPU you would never use. Then add one with profile that matches this laptop CPU. With all instructions and registers patched, your system will boot correctly. Note: Microcode must come from laptop using same chipset as your desktop motherboard. If anything goes wrong, don't panic. Drop back in your old CPU, reset BIOS, and try again. Also, your motherboard will not support power saving speed-step features only for laptops. Why should it? There's no battery.
Александр Мельников
And if you really screw up, follow instructions for How to "blind flash" your computer with original BIOS.

seems like a smart marketing scheme since if they pattented the parts anyone who wants the parts needs to get to buy or licence their motherboard or cpu's

Did linus not drop a cpu this episode?

Linus you should have a torque screwdriver (like a torque wrench but a screwdriver) for stuff like this. I use one to install EPYC CPUs in servers as is recommended by AMD. It will allow you to accurately and consistently set your hold down pressure with this type of CPU retention.

Which of the Chinese processors is better for a 2019 build, Chintel Core Eye 7 or RMD Frypan 7? Please help.

@7:23 Since when does warranty covers damage caused by overclocking? Let alone that it isn't the manufacturer's business what you do with your CPU. :)

when we are young, poor, and ignorant, yes. but not after we have worked hard to establish economic power, become conscious, and want quality in life. the same goes true for those communists. the ones with economic power want american and japanese made products.

@G00ober It's all state capitalism over there. The Chinese Communist Party encouraged students to study the works of Karl Marx, then blacklisted them when they started actually doing Marxist shit like trying to organize factory workers

I love Chinese hardware manufacturers. They give us consumer goods that many of us can only dream of owning since the original manufacturer, or so called "patent holder", sets the price at an exorbitant level. In a way they're the Socialist warrior we've all dreamed of. I can guarantee AMD will, over the next few years, jack up its prices to where they are no longer affordable or offer any real value for money. And don't give me this crap about competition. If "competition" reduced prices we would all be carrying around $500 iphones & galaxy notes. That's just the rubbish Trumptards & wall street like to feed us via the mainstream media so that we don't question the extortion corporate America gets away with

You can actually check whether the die is flush, lower, or higher than the surrounding shim plate. Just take a razor blade or a thin metal ruler, stand the long edge across the shim plate and cpu die, and shine some light through it. If there is even a slight separation between the razor blade / ruler and the object it stands on, light will pass through. If you don't have a thin metal ruler, you can even use art knife refills or metal plates with known straight edges. For the light source, it can be a mobile phone flashlight, or even ceiling lighting.

Technically those ES CPU's are still Intel property. This is nothing else than advertising for selling/buying stolen property. www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005719/processors.html "Engineering sample (ES) processors are also known as qualification sample processors. They are pre-production processors Intel loans to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), original device manufacturers (ODMs), and independent software vendors (ISVs) to be used in the product design cycle before product launch. These processors often include more features than production processors for customer pre-production evaluation and test purposes. ES processors: Produced by Intel are the sole property of Intel. Produced by Intel are Intel Confidential. Are provided by Intel under nondisclosure and/or special loan agreement terms with restrictions on the recipient's handling and use. Are not for sale or resale."

I find myself wheezing with anxiety when Linus holds electronics, I feel like one day he'll do a stream and end up flinging a high-end CPU across the room and into a wall whilst talking about how expensive it was.
