How To Build A Pc! Step-by-stepNovember 20, 2018
Oh hey Chris how is the co enough to be a little man I don’t know something snapped off and it’s just hurting yikes sorry about that hey you know some dogs sort of look like their owners what the Pacemakers share the same traits as their cases that’s ridiculous no it kind of works right I mean because like the.
Is cool right and you’re arguably cool right the case is super quiet and you’ve always been on the soft-spoken side yeah think it’s totally true.
Actually there’s one more thing we have in common what’s that well after the colonoscopy I think I also support a 360 millimeter radiator that like include push-pull.
Or the pure bass 604 be quiet offers a tempered glass side panel sound damping material and a highly versatile design chips with a pair of powerful peer.
Wings two fans and intentional support for 360 radiators click the link in the description for more info what’s cracking people welcome back to the channel hope you’re all doing well today we are building a full-blown system.
From the ground up the objective of.
This build is going to be so that theoretically those of.
You who might be building the system of your own at home can assemble it almost in real time as you watch.
Me build mine and so this is really just to help those of you who are maybe new to PC building if it’s your first time or if you just need a refresher on how to assemble this stuff so hopefully that’s.
That that makes sense and it’s going to be a link for your video because.
Of that it’s just more of a casual and relaxed environment to teach users or new users.
How to build a PC I will say that even if you’re not building a Rison system so I’m building an AMD Rison PC even if you’re building an intel-based computer you can still apply 95% of what I’m going to be doing today to your system it doesn’t really know the only real differences are the CPU installation which.
Either platform and CPU cooler installation which in itself can vary greatly even on the same platform depending on which manufacturer of cool you’re going with so that being said ladies gentlemen what is what am I just building this computer just for you guys of course not this is actually going to.
Be my cousin’s gaming PC that I helped him assemble or that I helped him pick out the parts.
For I actually did a video you can go ahead and check that out where I sort of make a parts list and that parts list looks drastically different from the hardware you see before me because I went back to the drawing board several times and was like no that doesn’t make sense that’s stupid so I’ve swapped it out from it was originally going to be an Intel system and.
Now it’s AMD Rison what do you know it just seemed to make more sense with his budget and stuff for those of you curious the build we’re looking at today is around $1,200 MSRP you.
Know give or take 100 bucks or so depending on the prices how they fluctuate all the time and stuff but let’s go ahead and go over the parts shall we one-by-one I’m going to do it really quick because we’ve got.
A lot of building to do right afterwards so first off our CPU of the hour is the risin 5 1600 it’s a 6 core 12 thread part boosts.6 gigahertz I am going to try to push that a bit further with a manual overclock.
For Brandon he’s not into overclocking it’s not too familiar with it so I’m going to try to get the squeeze the most performance out of it as I can with the help of this cooler now this was originally the the cooler that Brandon bought and paid for is this one right here the cryo rig h7 a really great price performance cooler however I forgot to tell Brandon to also.
Pick up or order an am 4 bracket to go along with it because it doesn’t come with one so it’s not supported with Rison natively out of the box so it’s going to take probably a few weeks for that bracket to get here so in the meantime we’re using this nock to a n II know n H u 12s and tastic cooler Brandon can decide if he wants to keep this one or swap it out for the h7.
Once the bracket arrives and that sort of thing so that’s that takes care of that we’ve also got a be 350 tomahawk motherboard from MSI this is a fantastic little budget board I believe that this is one of the ones that has the PL x chip so.
It supports crossfire and all that jazz.
It’s really nice sort of a black and red color scheme actually the red is very subtle on the vrm heat.
Clash with anything else in the rig but a fantastic little board here that is going to be paired with.
The gtx 1070 Super clock edition from good ol EVGA this is still I think one of the more affordable 1070 s that you can find on the market however it’s a blazing fast card and it’s certainly going.
To kick ass and raid some frames.
For today’s system then kids almost forgot about that down there it’s a 1800s I’m sorry the 16 gigabyte kit where’d you get that 18 you good bite kit from 16 gig kit of g.
5 ddr4 at 3000 megahertz I am also going to try to overclock that to 3200 as that does help Rison in gaming performance.
The be 350 tomahawk here is able to handle that our storage configuration consists of two drives the first of which being a 250 gig WD blue that’s.
Actually an SSD not a mechanical hard drive like you might have thought at first yeah.
WD makes makes friggin SSDs now and they actually called them the same name.
As their mechanical drives which is super confusing but nonetheless this should be a pretty sweet SSD I’ve never used it before personally or tested it so hopefully it’s a it works and it’s fast enough and we’ve got a one terabyte WD black mechanical hard drive for his for.
All the games and stuff obviously the heavy storage needs media that sort of thing I.
Should mention that we are installing Windows 10 64 bit on that SSD as well we’ve got the C Sonic G Series 650 watt.
Power supply this is a modular unit and 80 plus gold certified yo so incredibly power efficient and it’s also.
Going to say it’s a CCLC sonic see sonic is a great power supply brand they are very reputable so hopefully this one will handle this this particular system just fine and then finally our case of the hour is the envy XPS 340 elite in white I gave Brandon a couple options he really wanted a white case so I gave him this one along with like three or four other popular white cases.
He came out with was like this is the one this one right here and I completely agree I love this case myself I’ve built a couple systems in it already it’s got a beautiful tempered glass side panels got radiator support at the front in case he wants to upgrade the cooling solution later down the line and it’s.
Just a really nice chassis for not too much money and then finally just to give ourselves a little bit of an aesthetic bump for the rig I have included some fantex white sleeve extension cables to make things look nice and pretty oh.
There’s one more thing as a thank you to Brandon for letting me build his rig and film it on the channel I am throwing in free of charge and NZXT hue plus RGB LED unit which is probably the biggest baddest most.
Awesome RGB accessory you can add to a system here in 2017 so that’s going to definitely spice things up and add some bling definitely gonna give us a bling factor for today’s bill but those are all.
The parts ladies gentlemen so I’m done rambling I’m going to go ahead and start.
Building so if you guys those of you who are building your own systems at home.
What I’m going to suggest is that you grab your cpu aka your desktop processor and your main board or your.
Motherboard because that’s generally where I like to start in any given build so let’s let’s start there all right you all so you can see that I’ve taken the CPU somewhat out of its packaging you want to make sure not to touch it unless you absolutely have to so it’s still sort.
But I’ve also removed the motherboard from its anti-static sleeve and you’ll notice there’s a bunch of other stuff on this table I’m going to go over everything but when you take your motherboard out of its box you want to also take out a few important accessories along with it so that they’re just on hand when you’re ready.
For them the first of which is your motherboard IO shield and we’re going to see what this exactly is for in just a bit as well as your SATA cables I would.
Take out a number of SATA cables equivalent to the number of two and a half inch or three and a half inch drives that you’ll be connecting to your system.
So in our instance we’ve got two drives one SSD and one mechanical hard drive so I’ve actually pulled out all four of the cables since they come connected but you can take those out as well and then your your motherboard manual so this is.
The tomahawk manual you might need to consult it at some point.
And then the other stuff on here these are just sort of like tools that I use when building a computer the only one you absolutely need well.
Let me get the CPU out of here it’s not a tool really so we’ve got our.
The one you really need is a screwdriver you’d a Phillips head screwdriver this is a number two phillips head screwdriver any sort of length will do but i generally prefer a slightly longer one.
Putin just makes a little bit easy when screwing in screws and stuff but magnetic tip also helps a lot not not required but definitely appreciated makes things a bit easier and then we’ve also got some cable management accessories here so zip ties.
Generally there’s at least one one or two components your build that will come with zip ties but they’re usually very few of them and they’re not like the right length or they’re too cheap and stuff like that so I have my own on hand again this is not necessary just.
Kind of creates a cleaner build.
For the cable management part and then I’ve got some velcro ties in case I need them and then of course some wire cutters to cut the zip ties and stuff pair of scissors also works just as fine don’t.
That could be dangerous so those are the things that we are going to be using for this build and on.
That note we can actually install our CPU all right so here’s a close-up look at our CPU socket and this is basically where the CPU gets physically mounted or inserted on the motherboard and this one in particular is the am for socket AM for is only compatible with AMD rising CPUs at least at.
The time of filming so don’t try don’t bother putting in a in a non rising AMD chip or an Intel chip god forbid bad things will happen.
If you do so just stick to rising for a m4 and.
You’ll be good to go so if you are building it Intel rig right now I.
Would suggest going to some sort of tutorial maybe I’ll link one I’ll put a card somewhere if I can find a good tutorial on how to do that on the Intel platform but for Ziff sockets for Rison it’s really quite simple all you do is lift up this bar here.
There’s a little little bar that’s got a little latch.
Got to push it to the side a little bit and then lift it up like so and then get your cpu out I will remind you guys not to leave any fingerprints on your cpu particularly on the top you don’t.
Want to touch this top heat spreader here that’s that’s a no-no you want to grab it from the sides so here here’s the cpu.
Alright you can grab the edges edges are fine also do not touch the golden contacts the golden pins I should say on the bottom alright that’s a no-no as well that’s very important you want to keep that as clean as possible the way you want to do this now is you want to take note of the golden triangle there’s a golden triangle on one of the corners of the CPU and you want to match that with the small tiny ass triangle in the corner of the socket you can see there’s.
A tiny little corner or a little ya little arrow right in the corner there that’s going to match up with the gold arrow on your cpu so the way you want to do this is grab it with one hand one finger on each side I use.
My thumb and my index and you just go straight down into the socket you’ll notice that the pins you have pins on the bottom and you have pin holes in the socket so obviously you’re going to be slutting all those.
Pins into all those holes and it should just drop down it should feel snug it should feel like it’s it’s in there and you can give it a little label to make sure that it’s fully down looks good and then you take the lever and you just push it back to where it was there will be a little bit of pressure don’t let it scare you though and.
