How to Build A PC - Full Tutorial

  • Published: 26 September 2018
  • So I realize this is kind of a risky time to be releasing a guide on how to build a computer with the release of The Verge's not so successful guide.|

    However, I was actually already making this guide before that video came out because a lot of people on my channel have been requesting it so here it is.

    ON THE CHANCE that you find any mistakes or see things that need clarification, point them out. The best comment will be pinned and I will respond to it and/or address it however need be, but from what I can see after the time I spent on this video, I believe it to be a guide that will help any person be able to build a computer on their own whether it be their first or 100th time building.

    Part List:

    Intel i5 6400 Processor:

    Hyper 212 CPU Cooler:

    XPG 2666 MHz 2x8GB (16GB) DDR4 RAM:

    Z170X - Gaming 3 Gigabyte Motherboard:

    MSI 1050 Ti Graphics Card:

    Corsair 100R Case (I'm linking this case cause it's cheaper):

    Samsung 120GB SSD:

    EVGA 450 BT Power Supply:

    If you have any questions about the parts specifically or how I go about finding parts like these at what prices, I will answer. The best way to do that is through my discord. Link below.

    If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment and if you like the content I put out, a like and subscribe helps me out a ton for my confidence because as of now, I don't know if the content I am making is useful to anyone.

    Let me know any videos you would like to see in the future!

    Here is my discord server link that you should leave me a message or come talk to me over voice chat for longer questions or if you are just looking for some advice/support on your computer building experience :)

            How much can you actually do outside of the case before you have to actually put the motherboard in?

                If anyone is watching this and doesn't need the explanation of the parts in a Computer, you can skip to 10:33. From there on the Building beginns. Good Luck!

                      I think you got the airflow backwards for your case. Front fans are usually intake & exhaust fans are usually on the back or top.

                            I used a few videos to build my first PC and this was one of them. Thank you very much for the informative and step-by-step explanation and the attention to detail. It's really daunting to try and assemble a bunch of expensive equipment but these videos make it far less challenging.

                            Being able to understand the jokes about the Verge is a hilarious plus (sWiSs ArMy kNiFe), but jokes aside this is so helpful. Thank you again.

                                                Man, Verge's IT guys must have had a field day fixing that dying POS of a poorly put together piece of metal.

                                                  So many mistakes. Not enough thermal paste, no tweezers, or Swiss army knife that probably have Phillips head screwdriver.

I'm not someone who would be considered new to pc building, but this video was still very helpful because it reminded of random things I would have forgot!! Thanks for putting so much time in making these quality videos. Can't wait for your next upload. :D
