If only you would do it straight... it kinda hurts my "premium" thing. To be fair, never delidded anything, so I have no idea how hard it is to align IHS correctly, but it looks like something what you would buy on aliexpress. Especially on b-rolls ;p

Even if I don't like the look of the TridentZ Royale, but it would definitly fit with the 8086k u guys created here~

It seems like Linus has more competent people working under him, but because he wants to do everything himself he just ends up screwing shit up more often than not, and the poor bastard just has to stand there thinking to himself "I knew this was gonna happen" and "not again...". And obviously one word out of place, and Linus being the dick that he is will fire their asses.

That Madrinas coffe at the beginning Instantly reminded me "UHF" comedy and Stanley Spadowski`s Clubhouse, and to be honest all LTT style is a bit like that. Anyway, I watch, i like and thumb up:)

Oh an 8086K. I bought one of these because of the reference to the 8086. Happily paid the premium for the "86K" text adjustment on the box

You know what? I think the Intel's special edition CPU was boring.
Should they have gold-plated it? Yes.
Am I going to gold-plate it? Yes.
Do I care about consequences? Do I look like I do??

You did a mistake removing the nickel layer, a nickel layer is necessary when plating gold to copper, because otherwise copper ions migrate through the gold and cause it to corrode. Should have gold plated the nickel directly instead...

It should help thermals, wouldn't engraving technically leave a trench and "increase" the totally surface area? Similar to how more fins on a heat sink helps dissipate more heat?
