      I got an even better idea, since the OLED is bendable we can make concentrical layers, like a lot of sphere one in the other and since from what you have showed, from the back of the clear TV display we dont see nothing, then everyone watching the sphere TV will see only his prespective and also his own background since it wont be visible from the back(the other sides of the sphere). its a really cool topic tho. And its already possible specially the first one (transparent TV + 3D tv tech of few years ago) Make a video on this or holograms in the future including this linus!

                Hey, Linus my buddy, you got an old mSata SSD just kicking around a buddy could have ;) ;) My computer can only really handle getting one of those at this point. I would replace a Sata HDD but I need the storage space and I can't get an m.2 and I'm sure you don't need any mSata ssd's cause they kind of aren't good enough. Amirite my buddy?

                                    I still have 1 pci slot on my AM3+ mobo. Believe it or not I actually use it, I have equipment that needs it.

                                            Coming back to this video only to see them fail at recognizing PCI is... still cringeworthy.

                                                  those pci fans are great. you can let this run instead, and your gpu wont need to work as hard to keep itself cool.

I just use it to push air around inside the case. I think it was $4.59 at microcenter. I had a credit and it was either the card, or a Monster drink. I chose the card.

One of my first barebone builds was a phenom II black edition, and I had at the time a evga 9800SE card that ran stupidly hot so I had one of these just on the card all the time. Results so so.
