  • if anyone sees this, I have an 8 pin psu and my mobo is 24 pin. Do I need buy an extension cable for the psu or if I plug in the 8 pin on the 24 pin mobo will it work?

    OreoGotDunkedOreoGotDunked2 päivää sitten
    • That 8 pin will not supply the required power that 24 pin will need. It will need to be a proper 20+4 pin motherboard connector.

  • Linus i have a question, I ordered a pre-built pc and I started doing some research. And I found that my home was built in 1943 and doesn't have ground in the plug outlets. Is this something I should worry about? Or can I just plug my pc into an adapter that goes from 3 prong to a two prong 🔌 outlet? And Will not having ground affect my pc? I'm am in the USA 🇺🇸

  • Thank you so much for this! I've tinkered with PCs for years, but never embarked on a full, all new parts, PC from the ground up. After watching this, and several other of your videos, I got the confidence to succeed! And it was thrilling to research, order, build, and turn on for the first time. Thank you LTT!

  • Does the size of the case matter?

    Jesse.aJesse.a4 päivää sitten
    • Of course it does. You can't put an atx motherboard in a small case for matx or micro itx config. Also be careful for the cpu cooler size and gpu length!

    Noah karlssonNoah karlsson5 päivää sitten
    • @Noah karlsson yes, there is. Thermal paste is also preapplied on the cooler so no worries.

      CliffracerCliffracer4 päivää sitten
    • @Cliffracer is there one in ryzen 3 3200g. As far i can tell i have no idea. I know there is one in the newer versions but i am poor

      Noah karlssonNoah karlsson4 päivää sitten
    • Well, if you buy another cpu there usually is a cpu cooler with it in the box. It will be ok, not the best but unless you overclock it'll be fine, maybe noisy.

  • Hey Linus, a really smart move when work with any electrical and electronic components whether they're on or off, is to remove that ring on your finger. Great way to accidentally get zapped by a powered up motherboard, should you touch something you shouldn't if using a DVM or an oscilloscope. Anyone that has spent time around this stuff would and should know to remove anything metallic from their body where it makes contact with this stuff.
