    Best PC build from a GRlifesr I've seen yet. Buying all my parts today, and after having some extreme second thoughts, watching this video has been totally reassuring. No one else has gone as in depth as you and I truly appreciate it. Even just breaking down the mobo before even building, I love being able to see where/what everything is and not just seeing a pro go "boom boom boom, this is where everything goes, b-roll.." thank you so much!

    just search on youtube but you should find out how to 1. put an OS image in a flash drive and install it into the PC 2. find the wifi drivers, graphics card drivers, audio drivers of your motherboard (just google your motherboard model and look for the drivers for it). put them in a flash drive and install it onto the computer after the OS is ready

    Another really easy case to build in is the Coolermaster Masterbox TD500 ARGB. I got it for $97 online and it's got RGB fans built right into it. I really love the slight amount of clearance they give you between the motherboard and the back of the case. Makes it really easy to install my double GTX1660 Super setup, whereas with the smaller cases I had trouble battening my graphics cards down in the back without having to do a metric crap ton of work uninstalling my cables, graphics adapter and motherboard, then installing the adapter on the board and CAREFULLY reinserting the assembly and reattaching my cables. The GTX1660 is a tad weighty, as you're no doubt aware, and I was always paranoid of the possibility of cracking my PCIE slot because of that weight. :D

    Rescued me from myself! I have plenty of patience, but my tolerance for screw up directional simulation is sorely lacking. If I set out to follow step by step processes and at the end find there were errors "in" the step by step processes I'm subject to leave the project altogether, even if it means wasting the money for what I bought and taking a hammer to the finished trainwreck. I followed your tutorial and low and behold I finished with virtually the exact same finished product. Everything works........just like yours! Holy Molly batman I must have screwed up because, it wasn't supposed to be that simple. I completed the rest of the build for the computer, sans tutorial and, was thrilled like a school boy who tagged his very first beginning to end "romance" with my earliest puppy love. I built the entire PC in just a few hours (including breakfast break) as a birthday present to my 13 year old grandson. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

    on the motherboard you might see text that says "+HD_LED-" in that case the left pin is positive obviously and the right pin is negative. the connector will also have + or - but if it doesn't look for the side with an arrow. the arrow indicates where positive is. for the power switch it doesn't matter which way you connect it. that's why you won't find any arrows or + or - labels on the connector or the motherboard.

    Thank you so much for helping me build my 1st PC! I didn’t use the same parts, but after massive research & the mercy of PC components shortages and scalper chaos - I still came out with about a $1500 build, which I’m sure if it were a prebuilt from major retailers would have cost 3x as much. Some choices I made b/c of personal aesthetics, some b/c of price, and some parts b/c they were the only thing available for a normal MSRP price. I will not support scalpers! DarkForce MATX case - mint green, B550M-Prime (Wi-Fi) MATX Motherboard, Ryzen 7 3700x CPU, Thermaltake 64GB DDR4 (2x 32GB) c16 C3200 RGB RAM, ID-Cooling CPU Cooler (white), Corsair RM850x 80+ Gold PSU (white), Sabrent Rocket M.2 NVMe PCIE Q4 - 2TB w/heat sink (Copper/white), (5) - ID-Cooling 120mm Case fans (Mint Green/White LED) 12V 4-pin, Noctura Thermal Paste, Noctura anti-vibration fan connectors, Noctura 4-pin Y fan connector extensions, Asia Horse extension cables (white), and the only GPU that I could get my hands on that is semi-decent - XFX Radeon R570 RS 8GB (black/red - which totally clashes with my build, but I’m grateful to find one MSRP 8GB graphics card at Best Buy, until the 3080 Nvidia cards return someday).

    We all had to start somewhere. A lot of the PC enthusiasts started by just playing around with their PCs and seeing what they can learn. That's how I got started. If you can, consider learning on an old PC you may have laying around that you don't mind experimenting with. Take it apart completely to see all of the components and put it back together. If you can do this successful several times, you can build a PC. You don't need a fancy PC to learn and it doesn't even have to work.

    @GucciMilk Did you look at the PSU manual? It will tell you what cables go to what parts. The cables for the graphics card are usually referred to as "PCI-E" connectors.

    @GucciMilk What do you mean you can't plug anything in? All you need to do is run the cables from the power supply to the respective parts. That's it.

    Is any information available for fine tuning this build? Like the needed driver updates and overclocking or optimizing performance in general. otherwise it is very informative. Thanks

    If you don’t have front panel cables, how are you supposed to power it on? Asides from shorting the motherboard with a screwdriver to boot it.

    this video has a decent bit of false information like the ssd, i doubt that m.2 is even an nvme drive and i know its not an optane drive which is actually the fastest and has the lowest latency

    I let out a loud “NICE” after the video ended lol. Welcome to New Years Eve during an pandemic.. watching videos on how to build a PC. Anyways, thank you for an in depth video on how to build a PC. I am here because I got 'No Man’s Sky' and couldn’t play it. After much research I came to the conclusion that building a PC is much better than buying an pre made gaming rig. I’m excited to start saving for parts and eventually come back and follow your instructions ☺️

    Help! I'm trying my first build with my son and I'm lost at 31:09 and 38:07. We have a Corsair CX750M, which has a hardwired24pin ATX cable and 8pin EPS cable. We have the same 570 motherboard. It appears that you have another 8pin EPS from the power supply to a 8pin cable extension that you split into 2-4pins. We don't have a second EPS cable with the Corsair CX750M. My question is do we need to purchase one or is there an acceptable configuration where its not required - like if we did not connect to the EATX12V_2 on the ASUS board?
