    The one thing I can’t stand is streamer’s lack of care towards expensive and limited products. god damned rude and childish. But hey I guess I would too because you gave me all of your money.

  • McDiddlyee

    Pro gamer and streamer doesn’t know how to build a computer the video. Pro builder and SLtoosr doesn’t know how to build xQc’s split personalities the video. Next video, Pro Psychologist diagnoses xQc the video

    Well, I think his action is very real for a beginner. I build my first PC a year ago, so I should know. Where should your fans blow toward is commonly discussed. Any beginner with a search engine won't have problems there. Those things considered too small and obvious, however, are rarely talked about and can be find very troubling. Take me for example, I didn't know those plates in the case's rear can be take off by force. Imagine how frustrated I was to find out my GPU couldn't fit in the case and every video I found just took it for granted! Another important yet often ignored thing is hard drive cages are detachable from the case. God knows how hard I screwed the hard drive from the front and rear, outside the case. BTW, when installing the motherboard backplate, should you bend those metal thingy so it won't get inside USB ports or is it where they are supposed to be? I still don't know.

    what a waste of money...lol and you're right, he's lazy, and spoiled. streamer life, too conceited. 12 screws> bruh....and he overpaid, yup, official idiot. how would he make it in the real world? 12 screws must be "hard work"

    "This is how people must feel", No sorry. Some of us know how to handle computer parts. Ground theyself with a cable. Stupid as it sounds, hold an old computer psu cable with your hand and put your hands near the outlets. Simple as that. About 1/10th of an inch away. Now you wont feel how most people feel. Love the "OK Boomer" part. Put 2 and 2, then if you can 2 and 2. One thing most don't understand is binary. Push 16 means almost nothing. And for the 30 ish year olds (which I am), I could say allocate ####; most of you still would not understand a push ASM control. Nor is this something many would understand today. While you might understand push and pop. This would be "old school" stack ops. IE., more control with less CPU time.

    Hey Linus. I am a fellow SLtoosr with a whopping 492 subscribers. Let me do you a favour. I will tell ALL of my subscribers that you are a wicked cool dude if you send me some free stuff. Maybe a rack mount server or something. Preferably liquid cooled and not coated in layers of dust. LOL keep up the good work guys.

      @piyush Same here. I'm fine with my Ryzen 3600 until the 5000 series is widely available, for instance. If I needed something now, I'd get something used but decent while waiting for the new stuff to be in stock.

    • piyush

      @Eric Wood i dont, thats why i will wait until it comes in stock

    • Eric Wood
      Eric Wood

      @piyush It encourages the scalpers and worsens the problem for everyone, of course. Do you want CPUs and GPUs to be needlessly expensive?

    • piyush

      Whats wrong with paying a scalper?

    I don't really get the point of this video. So Linus is just making videos to make fun of people now? A bit of a jackass move. I think the guy was pretty clear that he doesn't really know what he's doing, going so far as to ask people in the background if he's doing it right. This video is a real step down for you Linus. Stick with making fun of corporations, they're pretty faceless. When you start making fun of individuals it just comes across as jackassery.

  • Toti

    no the dude is actually stupid

  • Elvirth24

    That was a fucking nightmare and I'm amazed Linus didn't freak out more.

    When you read the email that your wrote to him, you pretty much indicate that you are too busy to help unless he can wait, so you can understand why he decided to forge ahead knowing it would make a good video regardless of the outcome.

    Look up a girl called BritneeKayy on Twitch and check latest videos. She tried to install a new motherboard and it went horribly wrong. She bent the pins on her cpu and then tried to bend them back with tweezers.

  • YaBoiBeJoshin

    I have never considered suicide more than after watching this video

  • Rannon

    10:10 Looks/sounds to me like he's read up on building computers but doesn't really have much real experience building one (and apparently didn't read the specific manuals). 11:45 In other words, more optimal isn't always feasible! :D 12:18 Hey, that's what I did with my build! :D But in my case it was because I changed the brackets(?) on the CPU cold-plate to the AMD one and the plastic cover only fit well with the Intel bracket so it fell off at the worst possible time and smeared all over. I'm really happy I'd already bought a tube of thermal case as a precaution. 13:59 Reminds me of an acquaintance who doesn't know what's important so he reads out everything (when I help him with PC stuff), better than the opposite but it can get tiring. 15:08 Yes, very, very frustrating!

    I built all my PCs but i replace it like every 5-6 years so i barely remember much. So even though i built all my PC's i am hardly anywhere close to being experienced. I don't have trouble like this guy though. Why? Not because am better than him at getting everything but because i don't play Linus. I buy a good comfy case instead of fashionable one. I don't care about RGB and glass panels. Instead of looking at the insides i put a panel with sound proofing foam. This means i avoid troubling my self connecting RGB lights, i get a more silent PC and i avoid troubles with things barely fitting etc since the case is not too weird shape fashion thing. I also i buy a good air cooler put it on and end of story. Effective, simple and fine. No weird water-cooling figuring out were to put fans on the radiator and fit it in the case, no pipes to arrange and no maintenance of cooling fluid or whatever. Last thing i never do is buy huge graphics cards. Small, low powered with decent performance. As long as i can play my games i am fine. I don't need 4k with over 100 fps or a 140hz screen, Two fan card at the most with short PCB.

  • Baybladekidd

    Almost as bad as the verge

  • Anon ymous
    Anon ymous

    Here is the best built-up advice for beginners and everyone. DON'T WATERCOOL!!!! Is wasted money, extra hassle to install, hassle to maintain and you don't even need it. A good air cooler will do the same job. End of story. Just because this SLtoosrs made it a fashion it doesn't mean is the thing to do or is worth it. It is the freaking RGB lights usefullness of cooling only less pretty and more pain in the ass.

    As a loyal viewer for several years now, I do have to say that a "How to Build/ Put Together A PC for Beginners" video would be MOST welcome. I just built my first PC 2 years ago, and even with watching many videos of you building PCs, I was still lost at some parts of my build when actually installing it. I learned WHAT to purchase from watching you, but I still feel a bit lost on HOW to install them.
