@- xARCHONx - well, take heart in knowing that a HP techie came out to replace a dead PSU where I worked in around 2001. He did the job, proceeded to test the unit, and this super loud POP was heard all down the corridor. He'd done the exact same, hadn't checked the voltage switch. Haha, he had to go back to base, and get another new psu... Not as bad as the time a cisco guy came out to add stuff to one of our racks, took out a $10,000 switch, and promptly dropped it, smashing it. That was a terrible saturday to be doing unpaid overtime, with an extreme hangover, as the manager came out and blasted us all before realising it was the cisco guy and not us... fun times at swan tafe...

@[GD] SlowingUnicorn 180 why would anyone else be in your house, upstairs, building a PC on your carpet? Are you some strange sort of fetish fiend? Do you run a webcam and leave it open to the public, waiting for that one person to connect, so you can secretly grin, lick your trousers and giggle at the camera???

I built my first PC during the blackout of 2003, without a static wristband, while sitting on carpet. The only reason that PC didn’t boot up immediately when the power came back on was because it was the early days of SATA and I needed a molex to SATA adapter—after that it was golden until I replaced it with a MacBook Pro in 2006. Cable management in those days wasn’t a thing, so any attempt to hid cables was a bonus—otherwise everything was run all shitty and exposed. (For the younger folks, we didn’t have modular power supplies, and they ONLY came with the standard ketchup and mustard cables.)

you did the right thing by telling us that you did the build the wrong so at least it would not get as much threats of takedown. fortunately the pc worked . i dont know how evga is supposed to post but your problem could be 1 or both 1. evga boards will blink the lights on and of a couple times before passing the post. 2. you did mention that 1600 watts is overkill and may not be loaded enough to make it work properly so it could be possible that is why because the board saw the voltage sags and retried a couple times before it would normally give up and not pass and it finally passed after a longer than expected delay.

You realize that the Verge Video was deliberate. It was designed to be so bad that it would draw in people who are completely clueless about the political views of The Verge and its parent company Vox namely, "White Cis Hetro Nerdy Guys." They want you to criticize the video. So that when average normies mac consumer sees a Tech Channel with a Black Nerdy Gayish looking Tech Guy getting criticize and mock by "White Cis Hetro Nerdy Guys" it will fit the narrative that Tech is filled as sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, Toxic Masculinity. Do not view them as reasonable...that is the biggest mistake. Nobody should have even commented on the Verge PC Build video for one thing. Then these PC Channels didn't know what Vox is as Straight White Guy, that's another thing. Finally, you should have caught on that a corporate entity that props someone on that's supposed to be their tech guy; Only to have him make such amateurish mistake while making an instructional video wasn't a set-up? Then again that goes to show that intelligence isn't a simple as being able to build a PC vs recognizing a political bate-and-switch.

Best practices kinda makes it safer and reduces the chances of something going wrong. Cable management does improve airflow and aesthetics. By the way I don't use an antistatic band, I just keep touching metal like the non coated part of a case or a tool. I had a bad experience with glitchy memory on a Sun Server system couple of years back, due to carpeting in room causing static issues. So carpeting can increase static build up and static is generally bad for circuits..

Maybe I am too late but that power plug is not a proprietary connector, the regular power connector that is used on most consumer PSU(s) is IEC 60320 C13/14 coupler, whereas this is a C19/20 coupler, which has 16A support and is used in High current appliances and enterprise class UPS and server PDUs, 1600W is high enough.

A few days ago, I hammerd and cut down a x1 slot to make room for a x4 card. (1156 board powerd by i3-530, 2gigs of ram) Then it didn't boot. Next, I washed the motherboard with water and dried it for hours under direct sunlight on sand. But, suprisingly, it did boot the next time and installes windows 10 with no issues at all. I even ran gpu in the x1 slot. And still it works great..😎😎😂

Thanks for this video.. I'm building my son's first gaming computer my first build as well.. I've bought top of the line stuff because I'm not tech smart and I want the thing to last. I know more about computers now than I did a year ago... I've been buying the parts over the whole year to make the build next month.. I've spent about $5800-$5900.. I've been nervous about building it for a while now. I've even bought all the safety and security and building equipment. Lmmfao to see this video, I wish I would have seen it sooner mind you but, I'm feeling better about the project now. Thanks
