    Remember when having 56 cpu cores in a dual-socket system was crazy?

    I love his conclusion: "If you order a chip that doesn't exist, there's a good chance it's not gonna work" :D

    "don't they know that people drop things?" that is some intense foreshadowing.

    Linus, you had me cracking up with your excitement over those processors. I can definitely understand, I'm the same as well when it comes to new PC gear, great video bud.

    Wow the enthusiasm building this system truly showed! The funny part is I am even too scared and careful to fully insert a RAM into a socket to not put too much pressure on the PCBs to prevent bowing or otherwise damaging the mainboard, and you are leaning in with your full body weight on the CPU sockets :D

    I love how excited Linus is about everything in the beginning

    So, looking back and realizing that the ES chips from eBay probably only work with specific motherboards. I ran into this with an ES chip that would only work with supermicro boards
