Transcription

  • Linus: Okay sorry, what is this called ?
  • Scotty: "Huaqiangbei"
  • *laughs*
  • Linus: fantastic, alright so i'm here at
  • Scotty: "Huaqiangbei"
  • Linus: yeah perfect thank you, with Scotty
  • From 'Strange Parts', so I'm "getting me some strange parts"
  • In China
  • Which is actually exactly what we're doing
  • So, in this, like, gigantic tech mall-thing
  • They have everything from components like switches
  • To..
  • Computer parts, to drones, to cryptocurrency-crap
  • Mobile phones..
  • Pretty much you name it, they got it here.
  • So I don't really have any objective, other than go shopping and see exactly what it is
  • That I can buy with my little stack of 'Canadian Rubles' here.
  • So, uhh.. Wish me luck.
  • And hopefully that's not for me.
  • Scotty: No, I think we're good. [chuckles]
  • [Intro music: Laszlo - Supernova]
  • Linus: This video is brought to you by Corsair's Obsidian 500D
  • It's a mid-tower gaming case, featuring: Premium tempered glass an aluminium construction
  • Removable top fan trays and more!
  • Check it out at the link below.
  • Scotty: I think this is going to be an uphill battle,
  • To get them to even recognize what those are, let alone know the value of them.
  • Linus: They are gonna be like "what is this $H!T?!"
  • Yeah, no, it's okay; there's an ATM.
  • This is the world's most helpful error message: "Transaction is cancelled for some reason"
  • "Operation Timeout" "Thank you!"
  • Okay..
  • So like this is the kind of stuff that I wish we had a shop like this.
  • We were trying to do a piece a little while ago
  • Where we wanted lit.. Uhh..
  • Buttons! Or like.. Like.. Big fun buttons we could press
  • And if we could have just walked into a mall and bought them
  • That would have made my Christmas.
  • Scotty: The cool thing about here, particularly for buttons, is you can actually come in and touch them, right.
  • So, like, the button-feel is super important
  • Linus: Oh my god, I already found something I need.
  • Entire bags of like, motherboard standoffs.
  • I was trying to buy just a bag of computer screws
  • Only place I could find for it was eBay
  • Pricing was just totally unreasonable.
  • Scotty: Yeah and it will be very reasonable here.
  • Linus: Smartwatches, totally 100% real Beats.
  • Scotty: These are probably, like, semi-real
  • Linus: Semi-real?
  • Scotty: Yeah, like refurb-ed type.
  • Linus: Right, okay.
  • Wow. This place is enormous.
  • Scotty: It's crazy, right? This is probably one of twenty buildings
  • Linus: Honestly, it's overwhelming.
  • Scotty: Yeah.
  • Linus: Okay, so here's stuff I mostly recognize.
  • Scotty: "Right!"
  • Linus: There's like
  • A bunch of mining gear..
  • Like Antminers and.. What else do they got?
  • Mining Power supplies
  • ROG.. Something something
  • Looks like
  • Very similar SKU's
  • Linus: I'm just looking.
  • Linus: just looking
  • Linus: Uhh..
  • Linus: No, I don't.. Necessarily wanna get lead in here.
  • Linus: Hi! Nah, I'm just looking around, it's okay.
  • Linus: Thank you.
  • [Sad Music]
  • I mean this is the kind of thing you would never find in a retail store back home
  • This is like, dual socket, like server boards and stuff like that.
  • Can you ask how much this 1800W power supply is
  • [Chinese]
  • Scotty: That's like.. 50 bucks
  • Linus: 50 bucks?!
  • 50 dollars for an 1800W power supply?
  • Scotty: yeah.
  • Linus: Doesn't feel like an 1800W power supply, oh my god.
  • This is actually only rated for 1600W
  • Also, this is an mining only power supply, so it only does 12V.
  • This is just all mining $H!T
  • Scotty: they did not used to be this way.
  • Linus: Look at this! These are mining specific cards right here.
  • These ones without coolers
  • And uhh..
  • They actually do have a video output, but like just the one.
  • Scotty: Wooow, look at this stuff.
  • Linus: Yeah, so they got things like, uhh, these mining specific boards
  • Scotty: and this is used.
  • Linus: "Asus demo board.."
  • Here's a brand of motherboards that I have certainly never heard of
  • Sometimes it's just fascinating.
  • Like you walk up to a booth and kinda go:
  • What are you doing , You know
  • Like if you really need the B250M-HD3
  • or a WD Green SSD
  • Or a Byson fan, then you're good.
  • Scotty: This is indicative of the markets which is just like high degree of specializations in booths.
  • But it's also just like, a different way of doing business,
  • There is just not a lot like vertical integration.
  • It's "everybody does their own little thing" and has friends that do the other bits.
  • Linus: fundamental problem for PC stuff is that, umm,
  • Scotty: What's this?
  • Linus: Pricing across regions has really leveled out
  • Scotty: yeah.
  • Linus: Uhhm..
  • That's a wonderful question, I am not actually sure what this is.
  • Doesn't seem to be in any sort of hurry to tell us..
  • Scotty: "DTMF"? Is this uhh.. Telephone gear?
  • Linus: I mean they still have LGA 775 motherboards here, like brand new.
  • That's incredible
  • Oh wow, okay. I can't even like focus my eyes on this
  • Scotty: At one point she was burning paper with one of these, so just be..
  • Careful.
  • Oh, oh, it's this one.
  • Linus: How much is that one?
  • Scotty: This one?
  • Linus: Yeah.
  • Scotty: We'll ask here.
  • Oh, here we go.
  • Linus: Oh my god.
  • Scotty: watch the reflections on the glass
  • Linus: I think my kids would end up going blind if they found it.
  • Scotty: Yes. Yes, that's true.
  • Linus: Yeah, I'll pass, I'll pass on this
  • [Chinese]
  • Linus: I'm getting a 3 dollar discount now..
  • Yeah, I'm okay. I'm okay.
  • If I decide I get one, I'll come back.
  • Scotty: my reccomendation is that if you think you want something, you should just buy it while you're there.
  • Linus: Oh, okay.
  • So what I figured out at this point is..
  • I definitely need some kind of objective
  • Because, you could wander around here for weeks and..
  • Still have no idea where the hell you are and what the hell you're doing
  • Scotty: And I have!
  • I have..
  • So yeah, if you have something specific you wanna do.
  • I'm happy to try and make that happen
  • As best we can
  • Linus: okay.. I want the cheapest laptop in this entire mall.
  • Scotty: Cheapest laptop in the entire mall
  • Linus: yeah, lets do that. Lets see how usable it is.
  • Okay!
  • Scotty: I'm trying to think where we would go for that.. But yeah! Okay!
  • Lets maybe.. Jump buildings? As you have seen this one
  • To the other place that a lot of laptops and stuff.
  • Linus: Okay, sounds good.
  • It's an unusual thing going into somewhere with the objective
  • To buy the worst thing that you can find.
  • I mean if they weren't trying, I don't know how they
  • Could have made two completely different buildings, full of completely different people and things
  • look so identical.
  • Scotty: once you start coming here more, it does actually
  • Like you do notice differences. There is a different mix of stuff here.
  • But it's a different mix
  • Linus: It's subtle.
  • Scotty: Laptops? He wants to buy cheap laptop.
  • Laptop.
  • Linus: Actually, Eric, can you jump in?
  • Okay, we want the cheapest possible laptop like in..
  • He's my translator.
  • [Chinese]
  • Linus: so..One problem here, where..
  • The really nice guy from upstairs directed us
  • Is that, none of this is off-brand
  • This is like, Lenovo, Samsung, Asus, Dell..
  • This starts at 6000.. What, Yen?
  • Scotty: Uhh.. Renminbi
  • It's about 6 to 1, so divide by 6.
  • Linus: So about a thousand dollars.
  • Okay, that's about like
  • An [HP] Envy would start at back at home
  • Like I don't think we're gonna find anything that weird and/or cheap here
  • Tell you what, what do you edit your videos on?
  • Scotty: Final Cut or [Adobe] Premiere
  • Final Cut is my editor of choice,
  • But my editor uses [Adobe] Premiere
  • Linus: Here's what we're doing; we're building an editing rig for Strange Parts' editor.
  • Because.. When in doubt and I can't figure out what to make a video about..
  • I just build a computer.
  • So F%#K it. Okay, let's do it.
  • Lets go back to PC component land.
  • Scoty: Okay, go back upstairs here, maybe?
  • Linus: Sure.
  • Scotty: So my editor is in Mexico.
  • Scotty: It could be my editing rig.
  • Or my transcoding rig.
  • Linus: You know what, I don't care what you do with it.
  • But your editor is gonna watch this video, so if you don't send it to them
  • Then.. You know what that's between you guys.
  • Scotty: It's true, It's true, I would have to sort that out.
  • Oh no, Linus has stars in his eyes
  • Linus: Oh my god..
  • Scotty: He's looking devious
  • Linus: I think I've fallen in love.
  • It's actually, like, the construction of it is not bad too.
  • Like, from a distance it looked like plastic garbage
  • But it's actually aluminium garbage.
  • Scotty: It's like proper, yeah.
  • So it's exhaust going out either side with these like..
  • Baffles and than the whole thing is a big intake
  • Holy $H!T, is this thing like 300 dollars?
  • Scotty: 300 bucks, yeah.
  • Linus: Woooow!
  • How much is a Ferrari, 'definitely real Ferrari', power supply to go with it?
  • Dang..
  • Lets look around a little more.
  • I mean, we might find something else
  • But I don't know if I could love anything more than that case.
  • Sorry hun!
  • I'm feeling good! We're off to a..
  • Very good start here
  • Look at this stuff!
  • That is some ghetto-ass watercooling supplies
  • I don't.. I don't.. I don't know how I can resist.
  • Linus: What?
  • Linus: Awww..
  • What's the point of having something on display if you can't sell it?
  • Linus: So.. That one and that one
  • Oh, wow!
  • That radiator weighs almost nothing
  • That is aluminium AF!
  • And I actually don't even if this...
  • Oh, did you hear that, like, crack when I tried to put it on?
  • Okay, 15 bucks for this though... Not that bad.
  • Not that bad.
  • Okay, lets continue our quest.
  • Ah, thank you!
  • I don't really see anything here that is jumping out at me.
  • As having sufficient RGB-ness
  • Okay, this! That is my kind of RGB
  • And looks a lot more... sensible in terms of pricing as well.
  • Yeah, I expected that.
  • Okay, that's pretty cool.
  • It doesn't actually have a microphone, that is totally cheating.
  • Scotty: Is that true?
  • [Snaps]
  • Linus: Yeah, that's just cheating.
  • Scotty: so the question was like "Should we haggle over this?" right?
  • And so my rule of thumb is like; if I think it's fair price,
  • then I don't. Like I don't push on it.
  • Um, most people in the market are not like marking up stuff up
  • Because it's like wholesale, there's just not the expectation
  • Typically buying that one that they are gonna gouge you.
  • Linus: I mean, the one thing I need to know is..
  • If I have anywhere to mount my radiator inside, so..
  • Uhm, Eric, can you ask him if I can take it down and open it up?
  • Okay, we should be in pretty good shape!
  • Okay, yep! I'm sold.
  • Looks good to me.
  • So, I know I said that you don't screw around on the power supply and motherboard.
  • Scotty: Yeah.
  • Linus: I am definitely gonna be finding...
  • Brands that I don't recognize, for both of them.
  • Scotty: Okay!
  • Linus: Because, We are gonna have... we're gonna have the Chinese PC experience.
  • Wow, Colorful makes motherboard.
  • Scotty: Yeah.
  • Linus: That's fun.. Uhh,
  • Okay.
  • So I wanna know how much for that one.
  • It's a battleaxe, I don't know what the brand is, I can't read it.
  • But it says "Battleaxe" on it.
  • Yeah, the brown one at the bottom
  • There's nothing on here that would indicate sorta what it is
  • But it does have USB 3.0...
  • Linus: Colorful?
  • Oh, it's a Colorful board! Oh, okay..
  • Do you have.. Do you have anything... bigger?
  • Full ATX.
  • Here, we don't we uhh.. Why don't we just pick up a board here.
  • Lets just.. Lets just talk to our buddy here
  • Alright.
  • Do you have; motherboard, CPU, memory?
  • [Chinese]
  • Linus: Uhh, let me try that again. This!
  • What motherboards do you have?
  • Do you have anything.. Like, full sized? ATX?
  • More slots... Yeah.
  • What about memory?
  • Marketplace person: "Memory?"
  • Linus: Okay, so that's an 8GB Kingston stick.
  • Wait, it's a 100 bucks for 1 stick?
  • Okay, no.. Hold on.
  • Yeah.. I don't think that's very good pricing.
  • I think we can do better elsewhere.
  • We gotta start buying stuff or we're gonna run out of time here.
  • Does.. Anyone here speak English..?
  • Linus: No, I think that one is okay.
  • So..
  • We're reaching a deal on Ryzen chip and uhh..
  • A B350 motherboard
  • But, if I understand correctly;
  • He doesn't have stock here, he's just gonna go to one of the other stores and buy it,
  • So..
  • Scotty: Maybe, or there's a storeroom in somewhere else.
  • That is pretty common too, there will be like another booth somewhere
  • That has the stock.
  • That's less, like, this visible than this
  • Linus: I hate this, I want to go back to shopping online.
  • Fun fact: we're paying more than the other guy quoted us.
  • But at this point I don't care. Fine.
  • So here's the situation:
  • We like have 20 minutes before this whole place closes down
  • We have like 2500 Renminbi [about 400 USD] left to get: a GPU, storage, a power supply and a cooler
  • Because clearly this tubing is not gonna do us any good.
  • I hate this.
  • This is not a great shopping experience that I'm having.
  • I'm stressed out.
  • Okay, so these guys have Galax 1060's, lets find out how much
  • Eric: Sorry, which brand again?
  • Linus: Galax.
  • Linus: 2000.. [about 315 USD]
  • Scotty: Is he quoting 2000?
  • Linus: Yeah.
  • Scotty: Okay.. We're gonna have a cash situation
  • Linus: Hold on a second, worst case scenario all we still need is
  • Storage and a power supply, because we can use the stock cooler.
  • Scotty: Okay.
  • Linus: [Chuckling] and then we can just throw this radiator in the back for lols
  • And I'm gonna need a screwdriver
  • Scotty: well the other options is to go find a repair booth and do like..
  • Like you and a Chinese guy putting this together, together.
  • Linus: Oh my god..
  • Scotty: So that's an option.
  • Linus: 25.50.. [about 4 USD]
  • I think we'll have to move on
  • *sighs*
  • Okay..
  • Lots of high end stuff here, 1080's, 1080 Ti's..
  • We don't want that
  • I'm determined to get the rest of the stuff here.
  • So, here we go
  • We need SSD.. power supply..
  • Uhh, do you have um..
  • Do you have 1060?
  • Is that it?
  • Oh! Okay, so 2360? [about 370 USD]
  • That's a little better.
  • In the background: not much..
  • Linus: and then..
  • I can't even tell what the wattage of these things are.
  • 600 Watt? Alright, so we'll take this one
  • We're definitely at least getting one product where I don't recognize the brand at all.
  • I've never heard of 'Netac'
  • Eric is trying to get us 60 Renminbi [about 10 USD] off
  • And he's offering us 10 [1,50 USD] which is about two dollars. Two dollars discount.
  • Fine, I don't care anymore. Okay, fine,
  • We got a two dollar discount man.
  • You know, like, 10 years from now I'm gonna..
  • I'm gonna have like.. Two dollars
  • And I'm gonna like desperately need it to take a bus somewhere
  • Eric: Yup!
  • Linus: and that's gonna be all I have and I'm gonna be like
  • "Thank god Eric saved me that two dollars on that power supply, SSD"
  • Scotty: What's the total over here?
  • Linus: Uhh...
  • It was.. 3.. 3050! [about 450 USD]
  • Can I owe you some money?
  • Linus: Okay.
  • Alright, do we need to go back and get our motherboard, CPU combo?
  • So we got a small problem. The escalator is caged up now.
  • This place is closing in like two minutes.
  • and we have to go down to the bottom floor to the ATM.
  • We may no be able to go back to the store...
  • Scotty: that is a potential problem..
  • Linus: so we might walk out of here with a case
  • Scotty: It would be kind of a dick move, we sat around the market all day..
  • I think we'll make it work..
  • Alright, this is what we got? These three?
  • Oh and that one.
  • Okay.
  • So check everything.
  • Linus: Ryzen 7.. 1700..
  • Uhh, 2 DDR4.. 8GB sticks..
  • Yep! That's uhh..
  • And then we've got a B350-Plus. Yep! Okay.
  • Alright, so you're getting probably, hopefully..
  • a decent computer here.
  • Scotty: Cool!
  • Linus: I don't know about that power supply
  • We checked the first couple to make sure they were real, you see.
  • Scotty: You know...
  • I mean, I'm surprised he's not running it through a machine actually, cause..
  • Oh! He's gonna run it through a machine now.
  • Like, yeah. It's just a universal concern
  • it's definitely not you.. Like..
  • Linus: Ah, okay!
  • Hopefully this last piece of the puzzle is really simple.
  • We just need.. A Phillips head screwdriver.
  • Scotty: I know where to get that, but it's in a different building.
  • Linus: It's in a different building?!
  • I mean, they must have a phillips screwdriver here.
  • Scotty: Lets walk around the bottom floor.
  • Linus: like if we go offer offer someone 50 Renminbi [about 8 USD] for their screwdriver..
  • Will they just give it to us?
  • Scotty: we can buy a shop's screwdriver!
  • That would be an option.
  • This one right here?
  • Linus: yeah, sure.
  • Here
  • No.. No screwdriver..
  • Okay.
  • Should we just go to the other building?
  • Okay, fine. Lets just go where we know they're gonna have it
  • Scotty: alright, lets go back to that big tools booth.
  • Linus: I think the odds of that case having all toolless mounts
  • Is very slim
  • Scotty: yup.
  • Linus: Oh, is that your tools store?
  • Scotty: this is the one, yeah.
  • Linus: they look kinda open
  • Scotty: they look very open.
  • Linus: Okay, if I'm gonna buy a screwdriver, might as well [inaudible]
  • Actually, don't see that many options..
  • Where's just
  • Scotty: Here's small screwdrivers
  • Linus: the screwdriver, with an S. Y'know.
  • Lots of precision screwdrivers for working on phones, but we just want a normal like big screwdriver.
  • Scotty: Oh, here we go. Here.
  • Linus: Oh here we go, we walked right past screwdriver land on the way in.
  • Here's a super long one, you know what? I could actually use one of these.
  • Okay, yeah. I'll take this shank, I mean screwdriver.
  • Sorry, I'm like [flailing around screwdriver]
  • "You stay back!"
  • See this, they are both reversed now.
  • They are both going down
  • We caught it by like two minutes..
  • We were about to get kicked the F$#K out of this place.
  • So, Mr. ...
  • "Can build an iPhone out of parts that he finds in Shenzen",
  • when is the last time you build a computer?
  • Scotty: It's been..
  • Fifteen years.
  • Linus: Fifteen years? Okay, so can you build a computer?
  • Scotty: That's a great question, I.. I would like to think I still can
  • It has been a long time
  • Like, it has been multiple, multiple generations.
  • Linus: I bought the screwdriver for you.
  • I'm gonna be in charge of unboxing
  • and you're gonna be in charge of actually building this mess.
  • Scotty: alright.
  • Linus: Okay, you're already doing my job.
  • Whole collab ruined.
  • Scotty: Linus takes the vision of responsibility very carefully.
  • Linus: Okay, so.. Uhh..
  • Here, we can.. Let me just do a quick overview of our case here.
  • Scotty: Yep.
  • Linus: so this case is from the brand..
  • Powertrain.
  • So we were successful on the case front.
  • We found something that I had never heard of before.
  • It's the 'Chameleon'
  • and honestly for a 40 dollar case, the fact that it has RGB lighting..
  • Not that bad.
  • Feeling a little weird, assembling a computer in the middle of a.. Marketsquare.
  • Scotty: This is totally normal, there is.. they'll be like..
  • There's iPhone repair going on at McDonald's down there, so..
  • Linus: Fair enough..
  • Okay, we might have run up against our first challenge.
  • We actually need to pull out these two standoffs
  • and they are freaking tight.
  • So one option -
  • and I have used this with success before -
  • is to take a motherboard screw here,
  • Scotty: Right..
  • Linus: and.. Screw it in..
  • Too much! Like, seize it.
  • Scotty: yeah.
  • Linus: in the standoff.
  • Scotty: and then try back off the standoff and the screw
  • Linus: and then try back off the standoff and the screw
  • Scotty: It's worth the shot.
  • Oooh! Oh that looks good!
  • Linus: Got one.
  • Scotty: that looks good.
  • Linus: Okay, but we're gonna sacrifice another screw here.
  • Ooooh! We got it!
  • Scotty: Oh, you're a lucky man..
  • Linus: this is my computer, you're the lucky man.
  • So there you go, these are
  • These are seized as hell.
  • Like, without plyers and..
  • Yeah, we're not getting that out anymore.
  • Alright, so while Scotty screws in the motherboard
  • I'm gonna go through everything else we got here.
  • So this is a bit of a cheat,I have heard of "Great Wall"
  • But it is a Chinese brand
  • Uhh, I don't think I have ever seen a "Great Wall" power supply available..
  • Outside of China.
  • Wow!
  • You got a modular power supply!
  • There you go, modular cables!
  • Scotty: Oh, fancy.
  • Linus: Plug in what you need.
  • Scotty: Fancy Pantsie.
  • I would say that goes down here, right?
  • Linus: Yes it does, but we need..
  • Scotty: How do I get it in there?
  • Linus: You need to pull this off.
  • How the hell do we..
  • You know what, no! We don't have to take off. You can just slide it in.
  • You know what we have to do?
  • Is find out how good of a deal we got.
  • Scotty: I'm willing to say a little bit more expensive than the States, but I'm not sure.
  • Linus: Oh... Our case did not include any cooling fans
  • And we blew our money on a radiator
  • Instead of a rear fan. Damnit.
  • And our stock cooler, goes on right here.
  • Scotty: Right. If.. If we're double teaming on assembling, than I'm gonna double team on unboxing here.
  • Linus: Did you just get the thermal goop all over your hand?!
  • Scotty: I did..
  • Linus: No wonder your projects take you 8 months.
  • Scotty: Being an idiot doesn't help.
  • Linus: Okay.. HyperX FURY!!
  • Alright.. What else is there in here..
  • Scotty: we're ready to pop this in and then put cards in?
  • Linus: Yep.
  • Oh, that's almost in. Oh shoot, is that in our way?
  • Okay, we're in!
  • It's like actually getting dark enough that I'm having trouble seeing now too.
  • Scotty: Flashlight?
  • Linus: Can you flashlight me?
  • Did you just say fleshlight?
  • Scotty: I did not say 'fleshlight you'
  • Linus: Because like, not on camera..
  • So, he showed us the graphics card
  • But I did not realize it was like a brown box card, like it..
  • The card he showed us looked legit..
  • Uhh.. 'Made in China'.. 'GTX 1060
  • Ooh! This is a system integrator.. SKU.
  • So he sold us an OEM card, that rad bastard
  • So this probably doesn't have as much warranty on it
  • Again, not my problem.
  • Scotty: So that's.. Yeah.
  • Linus: I actually like this screwdriver.
  • Scotty: Are you commentating for something
  • Linus: Okay, now..
  • I promised that I was putting this damn radiator in, no matter what.
  • Scotty: Oh yeah, you did.
  • Linus: So I'm doing it
  • It's not gonna do anything
  • But it's gonna be in there.
  • Scotty: We need our tubing as well, right?
  • Linus: Yeah. Hell yeah.
  • You know, like that. Right?
  • Scotty: I would just run it back right into the other one.
  • Just like that.
  • Linus: No, no, no, no. I want it to look convincing
  • Scotty: you want full illusion?
  • Linus: yeah I just want.. We're gonna run this baby right there
  • That looks kinda watercooled.. Right?
  • See?
  • What do you think?
  • Scotty: Totally watercooled.
  • Linus: Thank you.
  • Scotty: totally watercooled.
  • Linus: let me show you a cable management secret..
