NCIX Bankruptcy Auction – Day 1

NCIX Bankruptcy Auction – Day 1

It is official, my friends. The bankruptcy auction of my former employer,, has begun. It’s today. I’ve got my voter card – this is my registration. So, it’s the previewing day. We’re gonna go in, we’re gonna see what’s what, and then we’re actually gonna come back tomorrow. The NCIX Tech Tips gold play button is in there. That’s my s**t I want that, and I’m sure I’m gonna find some other stuff too. Check this out: For any unfilled orders, please contact your credit card company to charge back. We are sorry for any inconvenience. We’re done. We’re f**king done. All right, let’s go. Synergy 2 lets you seamlessly share a mouse and keyboard between multiple computers. Check it out at the link below. So I’ve been to auctions run by these guys before, and it was at their facility, and everything was kind of, like, put into bins and carts. But on location, the rules are a little different. Like, even at the check-in desk. The computers here, they’re up for auction. You just – you go ever – like, is this toilet plunger up for auction? No, no, it’s not, okay, so not everything, but a lot of things. So in here is where they used to assemble all the NCIX PC computers. I was actually in here must have been a month or two ago, and I was chatting with the the owner – former owner – I don’t know how that works, but I was in here, and it was like crazy, like basically Screwdrivers down it looked like everyone went home for the day And then just never came back so they’ve they’ve kind of staged things a little bit make it look a little more you know auctiony it looks like any machines that were in the process of being built and or like this one’s got a lot of dust in it look at this And or I don’t know maybe we’re in for Repair, or were being used as demo systems have just kind of been set up all along the counters here For people to to bid on them some pretty good stuff in here So the way that these auctions work is everything is kind of grouped into Lots So you can’t just bid on this sapphire HD 2600 XT as though you would want to, you got to buy this uh One terabyte two and a half inch hard drive This test blank. No way There is so much like epic loot here look at this Alienware Compu 2000 stress balls This is doing nothing for my stress right now You could do like a techie Archaeological dig in this place and that was already true when I left five years ago Please keep this door closed. What are you gonna do about it? Alright ok this is fun. We found a home for the stress ball I found on the floor. Stress, stress is all gone now, and we’ve got some other good stuff here, too So this this was my bad like 8 years ago. I cut a PO for this This is the mountain mods. It’s UV green acrylic Stylish that that stayed fashionable UV green acrylic and it’s an external radiator mount with like these handles on the top So you would basically like separate them, and then you would screw in your radiator on both sides And you could just mount the radiator and just plonk it down on your desk Needless to say that concept didn’t really take off and making matters worse if you were to buy one of these today I hope you have a thermo chill PA series radiator because otherwise it won’t fit and those have been discontinued for over half a decade so Sorry NCIX I done goofed on that one. Another thing I bought that never sold, These that mod smart these were the primo chill guys Sometimes they moved ok some colors, though Not as successful as others. More danger den stuff Oh no an AM2 hold down for the Swiftech storm. Oh, oh ok here’s another good one. I guarantee you I bought this too Apogee GT, yup So I actually cut my teeth as a product manager on the water cooling category Because no one else wanted to do it look at that yellow label there, baby. This is the DB one from D Tech do you guys remember D Tech? I didn’t think so Danny from D Tech. Good guy good guy, man. They made the best Barb’s in the game back when barbed fittings were cool This is a fun bin if you want some truly legacy stuff like this looks really good But this is a gtx 760 and this doesn’t even look good But it’s like funnier than it than it looks it looks like a crappy graphics card. Uh-huh it’s a PCI card This is a Phys X card, Phys X by Ageia. (Phizz X) This is the future Okay, I need to find out how much the minimum bid is because like I just want to do a retro unboxing of office XP professionals still sealed Adobe Illustrator CS2 like clearly not worth anything but Oh, its an upgrade… You have to have CS1… Terrible. Now that is a dead operating system if I’ve ever seen one. Hey, I’ve got an iPad 2… Here’s a pink case for it as long as I’m willing to buy 30 of them and also holy crap There’s like a couple hundred cases for the Galaxy Note Not the note 3 or note 5 or note 8, the original Galaxy Note Oops. That wasn’t me. What is this stuff? Okay, so the way these things work like Everything is as is where it is so a box like this might be a treasure trip Oh check this out. This is X270 something- no X99 not Z270. So like whatever is in here is in here Huh also not Z270, that’s another X99 board it’s got like laptops laptops for days in here And boxes for like phones and stuff too like is this a blackberry phone? No, see empty box. But this feels like there could be a P9 Plus inside… and there isn’t. So you go you’re gonna go through this stuff pretty carefully one thing I know for sure though is that Craigslist is going to be flush with hardware deals, hardware deals for days on Craigslist with markup after this auction I I mean it is kind of depressing to think about it being reduced to this like to the point where Your promotional pens are in a bin for auction [one day this might be us] Now this kind of stuff is sad like I remember Irene I worked with Irene she doesn’t have a job anymore Yeah, she was really nice. I guess I didn’t really have anywhere to go with that… Yeah, no I actually have nowhere good to go with that. That’s kind of a bummer. Wonder what Irene’s stuff is in here. A Sears bag and some gloves Holy s**t Is this all of the customer records? This isn’t for sale, right? Throw away, okay? Yeah good. Shred hopefully… Ok so here’s all the good stuff Here’s a bunch of like current motherboards X370 pros like here’s a rampage 5 Edition 10, it’s like a 600 700 dollar board Here’s all the graphics cards that are worth anything as well, so your 1060’s, 1070’s. I mean this should give you some idea how bad the GPU shortage was that a retailer went out of business and had literally 20 graphics cards in stock… Oh wow, they’ve still got one of the water-cooled FX processors ooh, and a Core i7 extreme from like four or five years ago. Ouch. You can buy all the lunch room chairs lunch room microwaves mini-fridge. this is the aquarium as I called it or the boardroom. I just felt like I felt like a fish sitting in here. This was the CEOs office. so Apparently he set it up with a projector at some point. It wasn’t like this last time I was hanging around here but I’ve had a couple of, actually I’ve had a couple of very tense meetings in this room so Someone had told me that the gold play button was in the CEOs office, but I didn’t see it there Do you know if the gold YouTube play button is here, okay? So I’m messaging my old boss because I really want that gold play button But in the meantime we did get some clarification on this one There is an auction lot for it, but here, get get wide because there’s a lot of stuff I got to show here to buy it. I have to buy all of these awards all of this crap this dinosaur this basketball signed by Dirk Meyer This TV this stand and these two plants over here Really? For a silver button? I might be better off Just telling you guys go subscribe to Linus cat tips, try and get another twenty thousand subs over there get a cat tips play button It’s been a long time since I’ve been here So it wasn’t the wisest move ever, but yep. It was my call to do half of the room Green screen green and half of it So this is actually the original chroma key blue And then they repainted this one for when the other team moved over here after they got booted out of their previous studio If we uh, the idea was we’d be able to green or blue screen in this room, but what happened in practice was We just ended up with a lot of green cast on everything that we shot on the blue wall This will be the last time I ever walked through here. I haven’t been here in like Well over two years, three years… Huh Well, I guess this is as good a place as any to end our tour I guess we’ll be back tomorrow with Bidding what are we gonna, buy?

  1. Please keep this door closed at all times
    “What are you gonna do about it?”
    door is locked
    “Oh ok”

  2. 1:27
    "I was actually in here – must've been…"
    * Checks watch *
    "a month or two ago."

    Linus' awkward gestures never cease to make me cringe.

  3. I own a cat!…. I've thought about it. Your reasoning is sound sir.. I will put a notification bell subscribtion on the feline channel. But, and this is non- negotiable, I would enjoy the basketball and perhaps one of the fake plants in exchange for the sub…. Screw the plant. I just watched a video about cats and fake plants not being a super rad combo. This subscription is already paying off. I await your response. Good day sir.

  4. Is this how you got riley?
    riley sitting on a shelf
    "Oh watch, a still functional average white guy" takes him and puts him in a shopping cart

  5. Why wouldn’t you take your gold and silver play buttons with you when you (I assume) left? Did the company try to claim it as theirs or something?

  6. Okay so I notice certain stuff…. wht is there a lot of Asian people at the auction?? Business owners?

  7. I'm not sure but this really reminds me of Fallout

    like the nudes detonate everything's abandoned and the Lone Wanderer goes into the ncix building

    and find the whole building as if it had been abandoned in one day


  9. this went from kind of dancing on their grave, to completely over the top cringey stuff. every company dies… imagine the aholes doing this to your old space someday. perhaps a bit less snark was warranted?

  10. Linus is a nice guy. An honest guy. Thats a good thing.

    But theres no freaking way I would even consider doing ANYTHING other than grabbing that off the wall and walking out with it. Doesnt belong to NCIS, it shouldnt be on the wall, and I dont give a shit, Im takin it.

  11. Nothing last forever… today is my last day on my work…
    the whole company closed down after 40+ years of operation…

  12. Im pretty sure Linus is the spectrum due to his attitude at times but videos like this make me love him. Can see his passion, love it

  13. I'm glad at 7:00 ish he realised this actually means people lost their jobs. Jesus linus, have a heart man, too much celebration and happiness here for me…

  14. what wired about is NCIX Website down and it moves me to archive domain show website past. and no jokes you did right thing Linus move on from NCIX like even myself i try move on from stuff make me as bigger community but man its rough get Play button back and stuff. since YT play button so rare like cant be sell able. so i would say forget NCIX and move on get better play button.

    since i know how Youtube Strict of people taking they channel play button awards even if they dont own it anymore. i recommended is move on get better play button even thats just first tier 1 or talk YT staff team by issue having.

    but other that keep up good work.

  15. Everyone was looking like they'd never seen someone talking to someone with a camera crew pointed at them.

  16. Now you can easily recieve $_2634 on this page to explain enough to learn how to use the program
