    1. Linus Tech Tips

      This was super fun! Hope you all enjoyed watching us recoil in pain... I guess.

      1. 20, Muhammad Firdaus Baskoro

        oh calm down he does this every single video

      2. Clarito resdiano

        LOL 😆

      3. MrSoiSauce

        I’m used 2 this when it comes to ElectroBOOM, but I didn’t think Medhi would group someone into his shenanigans, nor did I think it would b Linus. Hang in there buddy…

      4. Kalder

        Try this again with DDR4, I think it might be a lot more sensitive.

      5. WonITKorea

        Channel Super Fun!

    2. I AM NODE

      just tape ground pin before zapping

    3. JosephusNB

      you guys are really funny , you should go on tour with this show :)

      ESD exists but it must be the most overrated danger in all of electronics. Source: spending 30 years working with electronics in computer and aerospace industries. It's like playing Russian Roulette with a 10,000 chamber revolver. Yes, it's possible to kill something, but very very unlikely.

      Nice Ideas. 🤣🦲

    7. Scotty Redecopp

      Loved it!!!!

    8. Pavel Jelínek

      6:58 watch the spark jumping to the ground

    9. Pavel Jelínek

      Hey! The ram might be still "working" but due to the possible damaged data lines, it could act faulty.. i would doo a memtest86+ edit: guyz i really enjoy the video, i watch linus since ever, since his first video and love the "eyebrow" man too, also saw anything and everything he ever released

    10. gula-gula getah sabah

      6:47 that's just amazing timing on Mehdi

    11. nosarcasm1

      The plastic packs broke me directly. It's so stereotype...

    12. Samarth Guleria

      That ram was manufactured by Toyota aa!!!

    13. Jason Lin

      Dam Corsair makes some great ram

    14. Anshu Sharma

      yup its a very fun toy when ur using on others and not on you 7:27

    15. Anshu Sharma

      i replayed this 1000000 times 6:44

    16. Dino

      Why would you get together with Linus? He's an idiot

    17. Doug Trout

      "some random comany".... guessing the P ended up on the floor

    18. Stinktierchen

      Dislike for wearing masks. This is so ridiculous to watch that I simply didnt watch it. Makes life easier.

    19. divyadeenu

      If among us was in real life: There is 1 ram imposter among us There is 1 Mehdi Electrocuter among us There is 1 Linus hero among us 😂😂😂😂

      U look like a mix of 2 of my teachers

    23. Naga Jothi

      Linus get's lol while mehdi get shocked 😂

    24. minecraft is a sus

      I just liked the vedio for express vpn (if you know to how to use vpn leave comment)

    25. Cristian.V Vlogs

      First, it was twomad, now its ElectroBOOM

    26. Kalder

      Couldn't you just call this "Shock therapy"?

    27. Sayan Ghosh

      7:00 ok now linus is just trying to kill your watch 😂

    29. Sultan Mehmood Ghaznavi

      most modern hardware is static proof.

    30. Sultan Mehmood Ghaznavi

      ESD sounds like electronic spread disease

    31. Killshot Playzz

      linus had SO much fun

    32. Sahan Jayasena

      Me : trying to find a ram ElectroBoom : why wouldn't this ram die

    33. JIUNnF

      Всё видео сводится к тому что они не проверили реальное состояние яцеек памяти и последствия их манипуляций.

    34. Leonardo Lelis UFPI UFPI

      Although I wanted one of those FBR shirts, the price and sending to me doesn't worth. 23 USD is 10% of minimum wage here in Brazil.

      1. Leonardo Lelis UFPI UFPI

        Try another memory chip, nor a Corsair...

    35. Nery Vilchis

      He shouldn’t feel pain he feels pain every day and he gets shocked every day

    36. mr caveskull

      just get some water

    37. lyfza meme

      Perry the platterpus is gonna jump out

    38. Mostly Penny Cat

      I like how Linus is in a matching mask and t shirt and Mehdi's wearing a dust mask from b&q.

    39. Eivinds Brede

      Crazy is good this days! I'm some How Crazy also :-) !!!

    40. Pradeep Dissanayaka

      Lol. Nice vid.

      The perfect crossover doesn't exis...

    42. boocey fejan

      Can made taser for me ?

    43. Sarimae23

      do not ground yourself, work inside computers, place a cpu in, feel the charge...get a slap from your master because it was a 400$ CPU. Do it 2ce a week, learn for life. OR : Ground yourself !

      Fabulous! Two of my faves teaming up. Get Louis Rossman for a future collab. You guys are the Avengers of Tech!

    46. Brian Hukee

      Isn’t it obvious that a static discharge would be drawn to the ground pins when the heat spreader is grounded and likely connected to the ground pins?

    47. Bryan B

      Why are you wearing masks though?

    48. Ram Alsafadi


    49. Rueben Mikoch

      How stupid do you feel now for depending on a MASK for virus protection?

    50. Aark

      No yu game was strong!!!! Haha

      "I would never plan any evil deeds." His evil is spontaneous.

    52. Mr.Pikachu The Madman

      For those of you curious, Linus sponsor was SeaSonic, a manufacturer of power supplies. I can vouch for their quality as I have had one for 1 & a half years and it’s still running strong in my pc. Weird that they include little nylon bags with them though, like why the bags? I guess we’ll never know. Still, if you’re building a pc I would go with them.

    53. Pravinraj Nadar

      What if some static energy just killed one or two memory chip onthat ram but system boots up and would give bsod on memory intensive task? It would be still dead as its unusable.

    54. Stan Petrov

      How about a LATITY with LTT?

      Has this really rationalized why I've been forgiven for redoing again what The Cursed found out was done by us, or have The Cursed been forgiven for rationalizing what they've done to me?

    60. •Hilarious• •Umbrella•

      "charge me doc" *Touches circut**

    61. Rohit Doulat

      I think the charge was jumping from medhi's hand to the heat plate which was connected to the ground , and so the current was not flowing through the data line of the ram , and so removing the heat plate killed the ram in the second or third charge most probly

    62. Big Cazza

      no offense linus u cheapskate, if u have a guest shoot on your reds so that we get to watch in higher res

    63. Big Cazza

      testing as if it was in the pc was key. even with no power to the cpu you can still send power to the memory controller, and memory controllers are delicate, like 1.5v under load in ambient toasted dead dumpster fire delicate. the dram itself is fine, u can smash dram with volts and the worst that happens is instability. but the imc is what will die

    64. Sketchy

      6:45 , Linus it's a pshycopat, man i would be laughthing my lungs off if i saw that happening

      oke im never again stressing over esd....its a one in a million anyways. i bet if u have bare feet or just one hand touching earth somewere it will never break.

    71. Hrky

      Isn't "Volting up" the same as "Amping up" because I=U/R ?

    72. NikTech

      13:09 you dont wish somebody’s death! ;)

    73. Adventuredragon

      So remember if your pc ram is near a hight voltage source(or electroBOOM) try not to touch it with 20.000 volts

      Your Linus voice sounds more like Linus than Linus.

    77. KupoMoogleRU

      Use memtest.

    78. Leonel Barrientos

      Try just using a 5volt battery and use the wires instead of the fingers. I have killed a memory with that🤔

    79. Davey Jones

      dude you're an engineer, how do you justify wearing a dust mask to fight off a virus?

      Why ground the stick? Isn't it the misplaced charge what kills them?

    88. Faizul Firhat

      Finally. The RAM died. :D

    89. Faizul Firhat

      Mehdi : Who are you? Linus : Who are you? Me : Uhh.. I was help you 2 to kill a RAM.

    90. Faizul Firhat

      Did linus change voltage?! But... Why RAM not die yet? I think true.

      I hope you guys do another one sometimes in the future. After all you guys are neighbours. Both deal with electronics and you BOTH drop stuff on the floor. I'm sure you guys can come up with something funny.

    95. Mateusz Zalewski

      They spread ground pins for return current and noise reduction on tho board. High speed circuit thing.

    96. Alex Sarkol

      That was fun. Been smiling the whole video!

      This is more or less what I do for a job! Using specialized equipment, I take micro-chips and zap them, most failing under 2kV. I don't really have a computer background nor electrical background so I'm trying to learn what all goes through in the process. Ironically enough, I originally watched Linus's video before starting there and now I've seen yours! I appreciate all you do to show beginners what all the devices around us do, and what we take for granted, very interesting stuff!

      Hi, I think you guys were "to positive" and "pulled"the energy. If you rather touched the guntip to a normal earth/ground, and then grounded the gun(I assume it has a ground clamp ) to your body, then the energy-impact would be "pushing" on the circuitboard rather than on you. Like welding, if you want to heat your tool, you go negative ground. If you want to heat the object, you go positive ground. Or if you want to kill a sandcastle on the beach.. You cant kill it with low-tide =)
