Twitch star xQc didn’t seem amused with Linus’s breakdown of his recent PC-building stream, which the tech guru called a “train wreck.”

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel might be one of the biggest Twitch streamers out there, but according to Linus Tech Tips, his PC-building skill leaves a lot to be desired.

As one of the top-earning individuals on Twitch, xQc definitely has plenty of cash to blow on the best PC parts money can buy, and assembling them into a powerhouse gaming rig also makes for great content.

It’s not just entertainment for Felix’s fans either apparently, as well-known tech YouTuber Linus Tech Tips took the time to critique xQc’s PC-building skills in a new video, labeling the process as a “train wreck,” to put things lightly.

“xQc reached out to me a number of weeks back asking for help with a new gaming PC. I pointed out that anyone and their dog would be happy to send him a free gaming PC in exchange for a tweet, but I did offer my help if he really needed it,” Linus explained. “Then I promptly never heard anything about it again until I was streaming today and you guys wouldn’t stop talking about how apparently horrible his build was.”

Sure enough, Felix’s actions within the first few seconds of the build were enough to make the tech guru cringe. “This must be how people feel watching me handle stuff,” he quipped while watching xQc conduct his build on the carpet, overpay for parts, handle things carelessly, and just seeming to have little idea what he was doing.

“What are juicers? He’s now used the word juicers twice.” Linus asked incredulously after xQc used one of his trademark terms to describe his sticks of RAM. “128 gigs of RAM in a gaming PC, and he’s calling them juicers. I’m really not sure I’m following so far.”

After suffering through roughly 15 minutes of xQc struggling to get everything put together, the YouTuber made it clear his offer to Felix still stands. “Felix if you’re watching this, my offer still stands. I’d be happy to walk you through this, we can make that case work.”

Wouldn’t you know it, xQc was watching, and posted his own reaction video to this one.

Despite having his PC-building skills absolutely torn apart by one of YouTube’s biggest computer experts, xQc seemed to be having a ton of fun watching and responding to the critique as it happened, and cackling at the fact he got Linus to say “juicers” on camera.

“Guys, the reason I sort of know in-depths and whatnot, is one of my brothers would build PCs, he’d tell me about it, but I would only remember certain parts,” Felix explained. “That wasn’t too bad, he didn’t roast me too hard.”

xQc admitted at the end of the video he had a tough time communicating with people who reach out to help, but we do hope he takes Linus up on his offer for assistance, as a collab stream between the two attempting to build a PC would be some great content.

Popular TikTok group ‘Sway House’ has long been under public scrutiny for their physical appearance, with many critics accusing the influencers of using steroids to achieve their gains — and now, the entire group has spoken out about the rumors.

The Sway House is comprised of a slew of top-tier content creators, including the likes of Bryce Hall, Josh Richards, Griffin Johnson, and Blake Gray, who boast millions of followers between them across multiple social media platforms.

On February 23, the group got together to address popular rumors and speculation about them, using questions specifically provided by their own fans via Twitter.

One of the more popular assumptions about these TikTokers has been spread around many times before, which claims that the group collectively takes steroids and other such enhancers to boost their workout results.

While Bryce Hall has admitted to steroid use before, the entire group had yet to speak on the issue as a whole, which came up during their February “assumptions” video.

“I guess I can’t really say anything on this one,” Hall laughed.

“Griffin takes like, fake steroids though,” Richards joked. “He’s not even a full committer!”

“Oh yeah, he gets ‘test boosters,’” Hall replied. “Just shoot it up in the butt!”

“Dude, I literally only take vitamins!” Griffin retorted. “They help increase your natural testosterone levels!”

The jokes against Griffin come as a humorous turn of the tables, after Tayler Holder grilled Bryce Hall about his own purported steroid use in December. During their humorous Q & A session, Hall did admit that he had used steroids in the past, but had since gone back to being “all natty.”

“Yes, I did,” Hall laughed. “So do so many other people, so f**k you guys! More plates, more dates. You guys were correct!”

“Let me tell you, I’m not encouraging any of my viewers to do it,” he added. “I just wanted to get big. I’m off now, I’m all natty now. Fully.”

(Topic starts at 1:50)

While the accusations of steroid use among the rest of the group remain as mere allegations, it’s important for fans to remember that their favorite influencers likely have a slew of resources at their disposal to obtain such bodies, and that being completely shredded isn’t a totally realistic body goal to set for everyone.
