I’m Embarrassed For Her…

Thanks ASUS for sponsoring today’s video! Check out the ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDM at

Yvonne's sister Esther needed some help with the family computer, so of course she called Linus. Well it turns out it needed a lot more than a light dusting and some minor tweaks, so he built her a new PC on one condition: we get to roast her current PC first.

It’s so nice to see Jake’s husband and Yvonne’s sister working together on this project.

    Edward Malone

    Project? You mean sponsored ad with a sprinkle of nepotism


    * Jake’s boyfriend’s wife’s sister. FIFY.

    And Rei

    ​@Pixelman26 you never turn your back on family if youg et my drift😊

    Cesar Perez

    @Edward Malone Nepotism is only a problem in government. Plus, she’s the only hot woman his wife is going to allow around him. Good for Asus for sponsoring a video with her in it. Maybe they should keep her on the show permanently.


    Tf is with this comment section 😂

Filippo Amati

Finally. An upgrade to a system older than Linus’s kids


    ​@And Rei that’s why people speak behind your back. You’ll figure it out in a few years, just make sure to have the suicide prevention hotline number close to you

    Last Last

    @Surms41 Hahaha wow

    Last Last

    @Surms41 Look up Melanin

    Dave Webster

    “upgrade” I’d say total replacement.


    I have a Bit Fenix Prodigy with a i5 4400 and a GTX 650 😂

Darren Hilbert

Watching Linus get roasted by family members is in itself a whole series I am here for!


    @Kim Weißmann are there even any differences from a $500 monitor vs a $2000 one LOL


    ​@And Rei dude you’re trying too hard to sell your fantasy

    Kim Weißmann

    @pvic depends on the panel, in oled or qled, more than just surely. in tn panels maybe, va OH GOD YES. also ask yourself how the avg 500 usd display is 400nits peak and yet there is hdr 1500.

    Country Life

    @pvic6959  don’t look at the apple monitors then… $8K… and that’s not the resolution.


    @And Rei yea right


Things are starting to make a lot more sense….Linus is actually the tall one in this family.

    I should have known that live hack too… when you are short – marry a chinese 😀

    Meek Meads

    @Acme. Nipp-on-AiR They’re Vietnamese

    Kitulous Gamedev Channel

    ​@meekmeads oh, you don’t understand. Yvonne is a decoy. Linus is actually married to Kyle from Bitwit.

    Esa Edvik

    @Kitulous Gamedev Channel Kyle isn’t married (was). Foiled again.

Philip Haire

Fantastic video, the back and forth between Linus and his family is hilarious to watch. That Bitfenix Prodigy was my dream small form factor case back in the day


Definitely loved the little sister energy and shenanigans.


I love these kinds of videos the most , the computer building … sure, it’s nice and seen a million times, but seeing family and the interactions , and the memories are the best part !

Jayson Cadano

Nostalgic. More ncix members please. I had a little crush on esther way back. Glad to see her again.

Matthew G

Didn’t know Riley’s origin story. Kinda cool to know she was the reason we have the quirky techlinked we get each week

David Wong

Esther has a maxed-out charisma level.

    For real, I even wanted to help her just watching, what a sympathic person!

    Phil Sim

    yall are funny

This is such a good premise for a video and Esther was a delight! Can tell you two get along well, which is awesome when it comes to family. Now, just need to teach the kiddos how to do basic troubleshooting and maintenance so if the adults in the household have issues, they can bug their kids instead of Linus 😛


    Are you my dad?
    Because thats exactly what he did


I love this show, now we know how down to earth Linus is and human. Thanks


OMG! Esther i remember watching her fist time in NCIX channel back in 2011, i shocked after watching this video am so happy she is okay Thank you so much for bring her to your channel Linus, i hope you all have a good day always! 🤗


Please do more stuff with the family. I love seeing Linus getting grilled by them 🤣🤣🤣.


It’s hard to believe that it’s been 800 years since Esther has built a PC 🤣.


    Ikr? I could’ve sworn it was like 1200 at least!

    Giancarlo Raphael De Guzman

    The more time passes the more years It’s been

    innocent devil

    Yeah the last time i remember seeing her building a pc was when I was riding a t-rex.

Antonio Sagamuccio

Built, upgraded and repaired PCs for 30 years and I can tell you her old computer was practically spotless compared to some of the rigs I’ve had in my shop over those decades. Some were like the Watership Down of dust bunnies. Some looked like they were growing hair. Bugs of all sorts. Same complaint every time “My computer is running really slow.”


    Watership Down reference for the win. Repaired PC’s for over 30 years confirmed.

    @MaGinty I once cracked open a laptop and 3 live cockroaches ran out, It was awful.


    Probably because she actually cleaned the room it was in, if you can’t clean your place a PC is long way away.


    Yes, exactly. First thing I always check is a system’s thermal stats and I know if they’re consistently high but steady, it usually means there’s a literal jungle of dust on the inside and none of the fans can do their job. Power supplies are usually the absolute worst. I don’t know how some people don’t manage to burn their houses down with a power supply that clogged with dust.

Grey Hodge

More Esther on camera please. She’s hilarious and entertaining.


It definately feels like Linus lucked into the wife family and they all seem very smart and nice.

Linus was a bag of untapped potential and this family helped unlock him.

He’s an amazing dad, husband, and business owner… But what would he be without Yvanne and her family?

Seems like a perfect match!

    nicest comment here. not out place or disrespectful as a lot of other ones here.

    The Keeper

    “But what would he be without Yvonne and her family?”
    Broke as hell on his 9th start-up, most likely.

    For some reason, every creative person I’ve ever dealt with have had zero financial management skills.


    @The Keeper I don’t know about that. Considering how cheap Linus is, it wouldn’t surprise me if he would manage financially. But I think without the Ho’s, LMG would’ve looked a lot different


    Actually… in a recent video Linus reveals that his parents in-law did not like him, but put up with him because of their support for their daughter.
    That is some good parenting though

Gregory Paulding

I love watching Linus deal with anything involving his family! This is him at his most comfortable I think! Awesome and entertaining content!


Ester is crazy and unpredictable fun! You gotta bring her back on again sometime.
