Linus Tech Tips is an extremely popular YouTube tech channel that is known for doing all kinds of things from reviews, advice, and everything in between. They just took the wraps off a project that they just finished putting together, and it's pretty stunning. A specced out gaming monster that's inspired by one of gaming's most infamous monsters: Minecraft's explosive killer, creepers. The gaming PC is technically impressive, and is housed inside a completely custom case complete with a button that causes the head to pop up and bounce back and forth like a bobble-head.
The PC was built for none other than PewdiePie, who currently holds the record (by a considerable margin) as the YouTube with the most number of subscribers. PewdiePie has recently started playing Minecraft again, a game that has always enjoyed the attention of millions of monthly players, but fell out of public view for a while when Fortnite took off. In recent months, Minecraft has spiked back up on platforms like Twitch, Mixer, and YouTube, showing that the game just doesn't know when to quit.
The PC itself is fairly impressive, with a powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and an Intel Core i9-9900KF—which is fancy tech-speak for "This computer will play Minecraft really good." Linus Tech Tips' YouTube video goes into detail about all the hardware onboard, complete with a walkthrough of them piecing it together on camera. If you're a gaming PC nut and a fan of Minecraft, it's definitely worth a watch.
